Meet Michael “Frosti” Zernow, Ubisoft’s first Chief Parkour Officer. Starting with Assassin’s Creed Unity, Zernow will serve as an adviser to the franchise, helping the developers ensure the parkour mechanics are as authentic and accurate as possible. In addition to assisting with game accuracy, Zernow and his team of coaches at Tempest Freerunning have helped us design a special parkour course for San Diego Comic Con. Meet Zernow and get your first look at the Assassin’s Creed Experience in the video below.
As you can see, it definitely won’t be an easy course, but there will be professionals from Tempest Freerunning (including Zernow, himself) there to give you tips and help you become a Master Assassin. “I’ve been a long-time fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and it’s one of the few highly visible examples of parkour that attracts younger athletes to the sport every year,” says Michael Zernow, the company’s new chief parkour officer.
