This week, more than 100,000 people will pack Downtown San Diego for the world’s largest comic book convention, San Diego Comic-Con International.
Each year, Comic-Con gets bigger and more outrageous.
This year, the Force will be with the Con in a big way, as the creative team behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens provides a sneak peek at the new movie.
If you weren’t able to get passes to the sold-out event, there will be plenty of things to do outside the San Diego Convention Center, many of them FREE! Here are a few:
At the Assassin’s Creed Experience outside the Hilton Gaslamp Hotel, you can parkour like a Master Assassin on a life-sized obstacle course based on Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the upcoming video game set during London’s industrial revolution.
The FX Fearless Arena will be set up on the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Lawn next to the Convention Center and will feature a medieval duel inspired by The Bastard Executioner, a live action virtual reality mission inspired by The Strain, and a Fargo-inspired giant inflatable snow globe.
CraveOnline will once again host a huge party aboard the USS Midway Museum, and they’ll be hiding tickets around Downtown San Diego for some lucky fans. (Much more on that in the coming days!)
