If there is one great way to promote an Assassin's Creed title it was definitely the Assassin's Creed Experience at SDCC last year. Sadly though if you were not able to attend San Diego Comic Con or you didn't want to stand in the long line for a short experience that was the only way to experience it. If you want another chance though it looks like the Assassin's Creed Experience is returning again and this time it has the Assassin's Creed Syndicate makeover added into the mix with this time ending in a Leap Of Faith out of the Tower Of London. Not the real tower but a facade around a lifted platform that is about thirty feet in the air.
Just in case you want to have a small glimpse of the Assassin's Creed Experience before next week we have a nice little trailer that shows off about what to expect. As the Assassin's Creed Experience has yet to be set up on the convention grounds this is all we have to go with at this point.

I fully admit that this makes the Assassin's Creed Experience look insanely more difficult than it was last year. There definitely looks like there are a whole lot more run-walls and ledge climbing from this video. Then again the last one looked the same and ended up being a lot tamer than we all actually expected. Who knows though outside of the actual construction unit and those over at Ubisoft that have signed off on the parkour run based on Assassin's Creed Syndicate? I wonder if we will get a partner in crime to aid us along when all is said and one and kind of how the shooting section may play out. All this will be answered soon though.
Also, and this circles back to the above issue for those who don't want to wait in lines for the Assassin's Creed Experience you can now register for a "Fast Pass" on the promotional page for Assassin's Creed Syndicate right now. It will cost you a whole lot of those "Action Points" to schedule but if you are new to it all you can actually rack up the points rather quick to get your fast pass all set up for the Assassin's Creed Experience. Also, if you can't make it out for SDCC you have a chance to win a trip out for it and the Assassin's Creed Experience on the same site although it seems odd that it is all offered up less than a week out from the start of the event.
Also, just for those who want to see another "preview" of sorts for what to expect for the Assassin's Creed Experience you can see me poorly run through the whole thing last year. It isn't the most exciting but it does show how Ubisoft is trying to get more buzz about Assassin's Creed Syndicate in a fun way even though it should be available at more events than just SDCC.
