Megarom Interactive sent out some press invitations to attend a very intimate launch event for the brand new Assassin’s Creed title called Syndicate. This launch event was held in Johannesburg at Churchills inside Melrose Arch on the eve of 21 Octover 2015.
As is customary of all events hosted by Megarom Interactive, the setting was perfect and fitted in with the theme of the new Assassin’s Creed title, which is set in the 1860’s during the Victorian Age in England. A lot of time, effort and planning went into ensuring that the event was a success with enough console stations available for the press to get some game-time exposure.
Not only did we have the opportunity to play the game, we were very well looked after with a wide variety of foods and snacks to keep our energy levels up, prize give-away’s to keep the excitement levels high and awesome goodie-bags when parting ways with the hosts!
There was also a special guest appearance from one of the main protagonists of the game to help encourage even the newest of fans to the Assassin’s Creed franchise. GES would like to thank Megarom Interactive on hosting such a successful event and for extending the invite to attend the event to us. A job well done to Rene Fraser and Graeme Selvan, you guys were awesome!
Below is an adventure vlog of the journey to the event, footage of the event and some game info, as well as a few photographs. I hope you enjoy!
