VR is steadily building up the platform with a combination of impressive tech and accessibility, and now the goal is to get that platform in front of as many eyes as it can. That seems to be at the heart of a new partnership between AMC and Assassin's Creed.
AMC will introduce Assassin's Creed VR experiences to several theaters from December 2nd to January 1st. The experience will be based on the film and will be available in Austin, Los Angeles, New York City, and San Francisco. Alienware and AMD are teaming up to create the installations, which will also come equipped with Oculus Rift headsets (via The Verge).
Viewers will participate in a full on parkour run and can look freely around the world around them, even catching a glimpse of Michael Fassbender's Assassin Aguilar. The footage will premiere at The Game Awards, and the experience will be available to download for free on the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear.

Century City 15 - Los Angeles, CA
Orange 30 - Orange, CA

"Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.

"Assassin's Creed stars Academy Award® nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 12 Years a Slave) and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, La Vie en Rose). The film is directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Macbeth); produced by New Regency, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, DMC Films and Kennedy/Marshall; co-financed by RatPac Entertainment and Alpha Pictures; and distributed by 20th Century Fox."
