Ubisoft celebrates 30th anniversary with free gamesBy Shawn Knight 17 comments
In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Ubisoft will be giving away a new game each month starting this month and running through December. The promotion started last week but got lost in all the E3 news and is just now making the rounds on major publications. In case you missed it, here's everything you need to know.
This month's free game is Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. To secure your copy, you'll simply need to download and install (assuming you don't already have it) Uplay, Ubisoft's digital distribution platform. It's that simple.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time is a third-person action-adventure puzzle-platformer that launched in March 2003 for the Xbox, GameCube, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation 2 and Windows PC. As tech2 notes, it's most certainly an old game but it's among the best and most loved franchises around so there will certainly be some people that'll take advantage of the offer. Plus, free game!
Note that this is a full digital download, not a trial or a game that'll restrict access after so long.
Although the next six games remain a mystery at this time, they will all be titles previously released by Ubisoft.
What games would you like to see Ubisoft release for free? Here's to hoping that the original Far Cry will be among the half dozen freebies.
