Ubisoft has announced today on Twitter that the last game they will be giving away on PC for their 30th Anniversary will be none other than their 2012 entry into the Assassin’s Creed franchise: Assassin’s Creed III. The game will be available for download on December 7 through Ubisoft’s Uplay service. All you have to do is register with Uplay to pick up this game – just like with all the others they have given away.
Back in June, Ubisoft started this 30th Anniversary sale and have given away Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (June), Splinter Cell (July), Rayman Origins (August), The Crew (September), Beyond Good & Evil (October), and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (November). As of right now Blood Dragon is still available to pick up for free, until December 7 when it switches to Assassin’s Creed III.
Assassin’s Creed III was not the most critically successful game in the long running series. However, it did give birth to things much praised by gamers such as the ship combat that became more established in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. It also had new parkour mechanics; therefore, giving more freedom to move around on buildings and by jumping through the trees, fluidly.
The game takes place during the American Revolution, arguably the most gruesome war in Northern American history. You take on the role of Connor Kenway, an assassin who is part British and part Native-American. He finds himself in the middle of the war and discovers the truth about the Templar’s hand behind the conflict. It also gives an ending to the long time modern-day Desmond story arch.
This list of games that Ubisoft has given away is actually quite nice. All of them being huge hits with the fans and from some of Ubisoft’s best franchises that they have in their repertoire.
