The world of Assassin’s Creed goes beyond the gaming experience, and Ubisoft are teaming up with several licensees at the New York Comic Con (NYCC) to showcase new publishing and merchandising items that complement this immersive (and, of course stealth based) universe.
Titan Comics and Ubisoft will host a Thursday, October 8 panel that details the Assassin’s Creed comic series, which is available worldwide starting October 14. Artist Dennis Calero, writers Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery, brand content director Aymar Azaizia, and Chief Writer Richard Farrese will be on hand to discuss the comic series as well as introduce new Assassins that will be featured in the storylines. Attendees will also have a chance to grab the first issue of the comic and an NYCC exclusive version of the first issue (it features an exclusive cover by Calero). On Saturday, October 10, Assassin’s Creed cosplayers will be giving away an exclusive signed art card.
NYCC attendees who stop by the Penguin Random House booth can grab a free copy of the Oliver Bowden penned books Assassin’s Creed Renaissance and Assassin’s Creed Unity. Coming out December 1 and once again penned by Bowden, Assassin’s Creed Underworld centers on the life of Henry Green before and during the events that transpired in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
Assassin’s Creed fans who are all about McFarlane Toys will get to check out the new figures Shay Cormac (Assassin’s Creed Rogue) and Jacob Frye (Assassin’s Creed Syndicate). The first 15 Assassin’s Creed cosplayers who stop by the McFarlane Toys booth will receive a figure designed and signed by Todd McFarlane!
Fans in search of a literally weightier collectible can pre-order the Jacob Frye Premiere Scale Statue at the TriForce booth. Cast in polystone, the statue is 14″ in height and checks in at 10 pounds. Attendees who pre-order the statues will receive a 15% discount on their purchase.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate comes out October 23 via the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. The PC version debuts November 19.
