Celebrating 30 years in the games business, Ubisoft has been giving away a number of titles for a limited time throughout 2016. However, as a special end-of-year promotion, you can fill any holes in your collection or grab the whole shebang at once, free of charge.
Over on the Ubisoft Club website, the publisher is giving gamers one final chance to reap the benefits of their birthday celebration. Usually you give present to the one having the birthday, but Ubisoft decided to turn that practice on its ear. From now through Dec. 18, you can grab any and all of the following seven games with just a few clicks of your mouse.
Again, there's no catch here. Just head on over to the site, click a box saying that you understand some of the games are not appropriate for minors, hit a couple extra buttons and, boom, you can get to downloading.
Ubisoft got its whole 30th birthday celebration rolling at this past summer's E3. From that point on, a free game has been made available each month of 2016, made up of the titles listed above. Some people were late to the party on occasion, though, and missed out on a game or two. For others, this might somehow be the first time they are hearing about the promotion. Either way, Ubisoft is looking out for you. It's a short window, so you might want to make with a quickness if you want to be sure to add any of these titles to your own collection.
We really appreciate the variety of titles here, including classics as well as more modern offerings that stand the test of time better than their younger counterparts. Classic Splinter Cell is definitely a nice get, right alongside one of my favorite games of the last generation, Rayman Origins. The Crew is perfect for driving fans while both Prince of Persia and Beyond Good & Evil are perfect for folks who enjoy action and adventure. And then there's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, a rad romp through 1980's-era action in the form of a neon-tinted first-person shooter.
If you haven't picked up any of these yet, which games are you most excited to grab from this limited promotion? For those of you who have played some of these games, which titles should your fellow readers make sure to pick up? Give us all of the details in the comments below.
