Just a quick one or you as no doubt many of you have noticed this news already, but Assassin’s Creed Unity is currently free on Uplay for a limited time.
The Parisian historical adventure isn’t without its fair share of critics but it’s a gorgeous-looking game (probably still the best-looking Assassin’s Creed) and its recreation of the city is arguably the series’ best urban sprawl yet.
This is all tied into Notre-Dame going up in flames, naturally, and is a thinly veiled PR stunt to get more gamers playing Assassin’s Creed and using Uplay. But, well, free’s free, so who are we to complain.
“In light of Monday’s events, we will be donating €500,000 to help with the restoration and reconstruction of the Cathedral,” wrote Ubisoft in a statement. “We encourage all of you who are interested to donate as well. In addition, we want to give everyone the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of Notre-Dame the best way we know how. For one week, we will be giving Assassin’s Creed Unity away free on PC, for anyone who wants to enjoy it.”
