Ubisoft will be making the PC version of Assassin’s Creed 2 free to download on its UPlay digital platform. The free game will officially be available starting 14 April and permanently added to the games library once selected and redeemed.
News of Ubisoft’s charitable offer of the second instalment in the series was first posted by industry analyst, Daniel Ahmad, on his official Twitter account. On a related note, Ahmad says that the offer appears to be global and also includes discounts on the game’s two sequels, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
Moreover, the offer is not a part of the studio’s Uplay+ service. As the game and all associated titles in the series are already a part of the more than 100 PC titles that are available to subscribers.
Global, free to keep forever. https://t.co/Ytf9jZOIxv
