Ubisoft is one of the world’s biggest video game companies, and is renowned worldwide for its great franchises like Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed. Although Ubisoft has also delighted video game fans with new releases like the wildly popular The Division and the recent Watch Dogs 2, which managed to improve on its predecessor in every conceivable way.
Some gamers have been mad at Ubisoft in recent times, though, due to the company’s failure to release a new game in the Prince of Persia series for instance, the poorly received original Watch Dogs game, and also Assassin’s Creed Unity’s buggy release in 2014, which was one of the worst video game launches in recent memory…
But it’s clear that Ubisoft is still one of the top video game companies out there, and the French outfit is now celebrating its 30th anniversary with monthly game giveaways, the most recent of which was Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon last November, which is one of the top-rated Far Cry games to date.
Assassin’s Creed III was also the first Assassin’s Creed game to feature naval combat, which turned out to be one of the best aspects of the game and became the basis for the pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, one of the best Assassin’s Creed games released to date.
So the fact that Ubisoft will be giving away Assassin’s Creed III from December 7 will certainly be great news for video game fans yet to play this instalment of the series, and perhaps make up for the fact that no major Assassin’s Creed game will be hitting the shelves this year, even if the highly-promising movie starring Michael Fassbender is only a few weeks away now, and will be releasing in late December worldwide.
Note: In order to take advantage of Ubisoft’s free offer to get Assassin’s Creed III (PC version), follow the instructions here. The game will be available to download starting December 7, while players can still get Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for free on Ubisoft’s website.
