Ubisoft’s giving away Assassin’s Creed 3 for free this month – but is that all?

Ubisoft has spent 2016 celebrating its 30th birthday by giving away a different PC game for free every month, and it’s rounding out the year with another classic in Assassin’s Creed 3.

The fêted games developer has offered up a slew of top quality titles on the house, including Splinter Cell, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and Beyond Good and Evil, but it looks like it’s been saving the best for last.

Set largely during the American Revolution, Assassin’s Creed 3 is one of the publisher’s biggest hits to date, and getting it for nought isn’t just winning – it couldn’t be easier.

All you need to do is sign up for a free Ubisoft Uplay account here, and then from December 7, you’ll be able to download AC3 on the gratis for Windows – up until then, it’s Far Cry 3 that’s up for grabs.

Why not nab both?

In addition, it looks like Ubisoft might have a couple more gifts for PC gamers before Christmas.

We spotted the following image on 9gag.com earlier today, which claims to ‘reveal’ that Ubisoft is planning to throw down a few more complementary downloads before the end of the year.

All are titles that have previously been made available for free as part of Ubi’s 30th birthday bash, so it could end up being accurate.

We’ve reached out to the poster, @KCB4Rockstar, in an attempt to independently verify the would-be ‘leak’ and will report back with any additional information we’re able to glean.

In the meantime, stay tuned, cross your fingers, and enjoy Assassin’s Creed 3.
