Ubisoft has detailed its Comic-Con line-up, as well as its panel offerings for next week’s event.

The first public demos of Just Dance 3 and Rabbids: Alive & Kicking will be shown, and Ubisoft will also demo Rayman Origins, and host an exclusive panel for Assassin’s Creed Revelations on July 23, 2011.

Ubisoft’s booth will feature “a special stage for consumers to get down with Just Dance 3,” as well as the demo of the mini games available in Rabbids: Alive & Kicking and Rayman Origins. Fans can also win a free T-shirt by checking in on Facebook at the Rayman Origins billboard at 6th Avenue & F Street, in the Gaslamp quarter, and then claim their prize at Ubisoft’s booth.

Other prizes will be given away at the booth, including special pre-order discounts and incentives on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Just Dance 3 releases.

In addition to Ubisoft’s booth, Ubisoft is teaming with Break Media and Zachary Levi’s The Nerd Machine to build out a “Nerd HQ” in downtown San Diego, from July 21-24. At the “Nerd HQ,” fans will gather to celebrate nerd culture and will have the chance to play Rayman Origins.

Finally, on Saturday, July 23, from 3–4 p.m. in Room 25ABC, the writers behind Assassin’s Creed Revelations will discuss and answer questions about the thrilling fourth installment in the critically acclaimed entertainment franchise during the “Assassin’s Creed: The Creation of a Universe” panel.

“Attendees will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how Ezio’s final journey will unfold as he walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altair, on a perilous journey of doubt and discovery,” reads the press release. “Additionally, attendees will get to watch an exclusive preview of the animated short film Assassin’s Creed Embers. Panelists will include the creators of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Revelations game, animated short film and comic. Adam Sessler, host of G4TV’s X-Play, will moderate the panel.”

Comic-Con International takes place in San Diego July 20–24.
