Assassin’s Creed Syndicate to be Playable at Comic-Con as Part of Road Show

Comic-Con is about to became more than just a place to ogle cosplayers and attend panels of cancelled TV series (#savehannibal) as Ubisoft has today announced that the first-ever Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Playtest Road Show will see its next stop coinciding with Comic-Con International: San Diego.

Participants will get exclusive hands-on time with the game and share detailed feedback directly with the development team to make an impact on the final game when it releases October 23. They’ll also get the opportunity to see the development process firsthand while experiencing Master Assassins Jacob and Evie Frye’s fight for London.

Fans in the San Diego area on July 11 can apply to participate by sending an email to with the following information: name, age, and a brief summary of their experience playing Assassin’s Creed games (100 words or less).  Participants must be experienced Assassin’s Creed players and 17 years of age or older, as of July 9. Once selected, participants will be given an appointment time.

Hopefully these playtests will result in a polished Assassin’s Creed experience come this October.
