The upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie is releasing a virtual reality experience for fans to promote the film.
The demo starts off by pitting users into an Animus lab before being dropped into the Spanish Inquisition. Once inside, they will get to watch assassins taking out guards and battling along the rooftops of Spain’s Malta castle before it ends with a leap of faith.
