Ubisoft Is Creating a Theme Park in Malaysia
Ubisoft is bringing some of its video game franchises to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in the form of a 10,000-square-meter indoor theme park.
Hay prices are about to go up overseas, because Ubisoft is opening its first indoor theme park in Malaysia. Planned to open in 2020, this Ubisoft theme park is going to have all kinds of rides and shows featuring the video game company's franchises. We can expect attractions based on Rabbids and Assassin's Creed based on their upcoming feature films.
“Ubisoft’s intention for this park is to immerse people in reactive worlds where they can interact with each other and become the heroes of their own life-sized game,” says Jean de Rivières, senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, which is leading the project. “Ubisoft will produce all digital media for the rides, and help design guests’ journey into the park to ensure the visitors’ experience is at its best,”
Obviously, this theme park will focus on Ubisoft upcoming motion pictures, and there are movies on supposedly on deck for Splinter Cell, Watch Dogs, Ghost Recon and Far Cry, but we haven't really heard any major announcements pertaining to those just yet. Theme park-developer RSG will develop, own and operate the Malaysian location, and Ubisoft will maintain creative control over the available rides and attractions. Even though this theme park will be on the other side of the world, we're glad to see that Ubisoft has some big plans for its upcoming movies.
“Malaysia is the second-most-visited country in Asia” Rivières added. “There is room for multiple projects to take root in the region and a growing middle class with an increasing income and appetite for entertainment.”
Whatever Assassin's Creed ride Ubisoft and RSG have planned, it better end in a pile of hay.
