It’s December, which means we’re all counting down the days until Christmas is here. Usually, this also means that various games are getting holiday events and developers are docking prices on some of their titles so that players can get them. But, for Ubisoft, they’re going the extra mile, as they’re not just lowering a price, they’re giving two of their games away for free. And one of them is Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. Yeah, didn’t see that one coming, did you?
But it’s true, Ubisoft is giving away World in Conflict and Assassin’s Creed Black Flag for free on PC. All you have to do is have a Ubisoft account to get them. Or, if you don’t want to do that, you can try and win them via a free giveaway. Go to this site for details on that. As for why they’re giving these games away, it’s their tenth anniversary. Both of the launch of World in Conflict, and the debut of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. So…gifts all around!
Now, we think it’s important to note why Away Assassin’s Creed Black Flag is revered as one of the best games in the Assassin’s Creed series, for it’s very deserved.
You see, for many of the games, there was a major focus on the main character, Desmond. But, in Assassin’s Creed 3, he died, and many weren’t very happy with the “resolution” of the story. So, in Away Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, they decided to put the story on the backburner as it were, and focus on the gameplay. This was a wise move, as this led not just to the pirate theme of the game, but the refining and perfecting of naval combat, which become a “must-have” in future Assassin’s Creed games.
So, if you have a good PC and you want to play Black Flag, you’ll be able to get it (for free!) from the 11th to the 18. For those who want World in Conflict (and its expansions for free), they’re available right now.
