LATEST EDIT: everything has expired exceptAssassin's Creed 3 on Ubisoft Club.OLD EDIT: if you're reading this between the 16th-18th of December,
it's easier to just skip to post #11. (Scroll down the page for the 11th post.)
If you're reading this on the 19th and beyond,
just read the whole thread as you normally would
since it would mean you missed out the easier way of getting these free Ubisoft games.
Just making this thread for those who would benefit from it.
[Mostly just people who might want a few free
PC games and don't mind the Ubisoft client.]
A couple of weeks ago or so, Humble Bundle was giving away free
Steam keys for Dirt 3, within a 2 day time window.
Expired now but the good news is
Ubisoft has a free game to give away every month
on their Ubisoft client.
You just need to login/make an account and
redeem whatever comes up every month.
(The 15th of each month? I'm not sure.)
Right now, the free game of the month is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.[WARNING: some video games are not suitable for children!!]
But ON TOP of that,
Ubisoft is also doing a "30 days" thing where
you can also redeem free things like
wallpapers, GIFs, video games, recipes, etc.
ya know....for Christmas, and to further celebrate their 30th anniversary.
Every day, you can check what the next giveaway is
on their digital advent calender thing until the 23rd of December I think.
Not every day will be a game, some days
it's wallpapers, etc...
According to people on Reddit who used the "inspect element"
it is expected that: (unless Ubisoft switches things up a bit)-7th December - Assassin's Creed 3-15th December - Prince of Persia (Sands of Time?)-16th December - Rayman (Legends?)-17th December - Splinter Cell 1-18th December - The Crew
Looking forward to The Crew....I tend to like racing games.
But I'll give those other games a go as well,
even though I don't really like Assassin's Creed
or the Ubisoft client.
Well, hope this helps someone out.
BTW, I don't know if there's a catch with
using the Ubisoft launcher. (I mean, it's a reputable game developer
I know EA's Origin client is a bit dodgy
and has a controversial reputation with how they
access peoples' computers (or something like that)
but it's the only way I know of, to play BF3.
If anyone knows of any moral/security reasons to stop
using the Ubisoft client, let me know.
For now, it seems like a generous thing Ubisoft is doing.
I guess if anyone has any info on free promotions
they'd like to share here, they're welcome to.
(I don't really consider this advertising....but I wonder when the line should
be drawn lol....free games don't seem like advertising to me but I dunno...)
I tell people about this kinda stuff
because it's the kinda thing I would like
others to inform me about, in case I'm interested in a certain
free game or whatever.
I think an interesting tip in finding
free game promotions,
is to type in Google
"free pc game" and click News
to see if there's any recent articles
because sometimes promotions are reported by tech/gaming
article websites and such.
