Download Free Ubisoft Games on PC for the Holidays

Posted by | News, PC | No Comments

Ubisoft is celebrating the holiday season, called Happy Playdays, with two free game giveaways on PC (Uplay). Both games, World in Conflict and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, will be available to download for free for a limited time.

The first free game giveaway is 2007’s World in Conflict. World in Conflict is a real time strategy game set in an alternate world where the Cold War turned into a direct clash between the US and Soviet Union. The RTS features a single-player campaign and 16-player multiplayer. The giveaway includes the 2009 expansion, Soviet Assault.

World in Conflict is available to download from now until December 11.

The second giveaway is Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. This edition of the blockbuster historical-action series is set during the age of sail, 1715. You live the life of a pirate in the Caribbean, commanding ships, searching for buried treasure, and assaulting fortresses. It’s widely considered one of the best Assassin’s Creed games (and I can personally attest to that).

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag will be free from December 11 to December 18.

The Happy Playdays giveaways are only available for PC. Downloading the free games requires an Ubisoft account and Uplay (both free).

 

Assassin's Creed IV

New Release: Assassin's Creed IV

Posted by | News | 2 Comments

The fourth main game of the Assassin’s Creed franchise was released today for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and next-gen consoles. AC IV explores the life of Edward Kenway, grandfather to Assassin’s Creed III’s Connor Kenway. Edward navigates the Caribbean in the 17th century as a pirate torn between his life back in England, his search for wealth, and his growing ties to the Assassins.

The game expands on Assassin’s Creed III’s sailing side quests, offering a vast open world for exploration. Early reviews have praised the sailing and piracy aspects—as a pirate simulator, it shines. The main plot and ties to the Assassin’s Creed lore are more tenuous, but the game is visually and technically sound. Players will enjoy leaving the beaten path to explore uncharted islands and engage in naval battles on the high seas. Fans of the traditional Assassin’s Creed battle between the shadowy Assassins and Templars might be disappointed by the departure from what has previously been the heart of the series. Other fans might find AC IV a breath of fresh, salty air.
