PSA: Assassin’s Creed III For PC Now Available For Free From Ubisoft

by Robert Workman


Nothing beats getting a free game in time for the holidays – and Ubisoft has a doozy that you can add to your collection right now.

As it announced last week, the publisher has released Assassin’s Creed III as its final title in its year-long celebration of its 30th anniversary in the game industry. The game follows the release of other freebies that have been given out over the past year, including Rayman Origins, The Crew, Beyond Good and Evil and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Better still, the game is fairly easy to add to your digital collection. Head on over to the Ubisoft Club page and agree to the terms and conditions. (Relax, it’s free.) From there, click the “Get the Game Now” link and follow the instructions to download. It could take a little while for Assassin’s Creed III to be added, as it’s a pretty hefty title. However, once it’s done, you can play it to your heart’s content, as the game will officially be yours.

Assassin’s Creed III was released back in 2012 for various platforms, and follows the adventures of Ratonhnhake:ton, or Connor, through his trials and tribulations in the American Revolution, as he battles against the vicious Templars in the hopes of turning the tide and gaining freedom for the colonies.

Of course, the series has gone on to bigger adventures since this game’s release, with titles like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag with its pirating theme and 2014’s Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. The series has since taken a hiatus, with only Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection releasing for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this year. There is a film coming, Assassin’s Creed, which is set to debut in theaters December 21st.

Be sure to check out Assassin’s Creed III when you can. It’s only going to be free for the rest of this month and a few days next year.
