Rayman, Altair Headline Ubisoft's Comic Con 2011 Line-Up
Ubisoft revealed their plans for next week's Comic Con in San Diego. They'll have four games on display, three of which will be playable.
Ubisoft's Comic Con booth will have a stage where visitors can try out Just Dance 3 as well as the Kinect-exclusive party game Rabbids: Alive & Kicking. The HD side-scroller Rayman Origins will be playable for the first time ever. Ubisoft plans to give away a variety of prizes at the booth, such as pre-order discounts and incentives for Assassin's Creed Revelations and Just Dance 3.
Assassin's Creed Revelations, by the way, won't be playable at Comic Con. However, Ubisoft will be holding a panel discussion about the open-world series on July 23rd from 3-4 pm. During the "Assassinís Creed: The Creation of a Universe" panel, Revelations' writers will discuss how they weaved real world history with fictional conspiracy theories to create this franchise. They'll show attendees a behind-the-scenes look at Revelations as well as an exclusive preview of the short film Assassinís Creed Embers.
If you need a break from the Convention Center (you will), note that Ubisoft will have a presence elsewhere in downtown San Diego. Ubisoft will team up with Break Media and Chuck star Zachary Levi to host a "Nerd HQ" event from July 21st to 24th. The Nerd HQ is said to "celebrate nerd culture." On a more practical note, they'll have the Rayman Origins demo on hand.
Comic-Con International: San Diego will run from July 20th to 24th.
