Ubisoft is certainly in the giving mood. After running a giveaway for their hit PC title WATCH_DOGS last month, the French gaming tour de force is back at it again. Ubisoft is offering World in Conflict: Complete Edition for free now through December 11 and will offer Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag for free December 12 through December 18.

The main “gotcha” for these giveaways is that the games are only available for free through Ubisoft’s Uplay service, which will require creating an account if you don’t already have one. Uplay is similar to most other game storefronts like EA’s Origin or the ubiquitous Steam service from Valve. However, Uplay has been maligned in the past for its less-than-stellar connection reliability, ever-present DLC requirements, and other buggy behavior.

Ubisoft is giving these titles away to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the World in Conflict and Assassin’s Creed series. World in Conflict received critical praise upon its release 10 years ago, and the Assassin’s Creed titles are routinely surrounded by high anticipation. Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag is one of the better-received titles in the series and introduced some fun elements, like naval combat.

World in Conflict: Complete Edition will be available through Uplay until December 11, 5 AM (EST). Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag will be made the following day at 9 AM (EST) until December 18 at 5 AM (EST).

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
