Parkour group brings 'Assassin's Creed' to life in Paris

New, 28 comments

Assassin's Creed has always made it easy to pull off incredible acrobatic moves with little more than a tap of a button, but those video game leaps are nothing compared to seeing real parkour practitioners weave their way through the urban jungle. Just in time for Comic Con, developer Ubisoft has sponsored a new parkour video to promote its upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity, which takes the series to the French Revolution. Four French practitioners, dressed up as "Assassins," bring a moment from the game to life on the streets of Paris as they chase down a couple of guards. The acrobatic feats may be a bit gratuitous, but it sure is fun to watch.
