One Of The Best Assassin's Creed Games Is Free To Download And Keep Today
Ubisoft is continuing its delightful hot streak of offering out some of its best games for the low, low price of nothing. Starting today (April 14th), you'll be able to download and keep Assassin's Creed II, which is still considered by many to be one of the very best entries in the long-running franchise.
It's a global offer, and will also come hand-in-hand with discounts for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Assassin's Creed Revelations, which finish the story Assassin's Creed II kicks off. Specifically, the story of Ezio Auditore, the most popular Assassin's Creed protagonist by some distance.
To get your hands on Assassin's Creed II and call it your own, you simply need to install uPlay. After that, you can download the game via this link. This is where Ubisoft has been detailing all its current freebies, including the fantastic Rayman Legends, which was on offer a few weeks back.

Ubisoft has been giving away free games for the last few weeks now in an effort to encourage folk to stay at home and observe physical distancing measures. A noble pursuit. After all, what better way to get people to stay home than to give them a load of great games to play?
"We have put together a month-long series of offers, trials, and discounts to help everyone who is following health authorities' guidance by staying at home," the company said when it gave out Rayman Legends. "Whether you need a way to keep active, socialise with friends at a distance, or just stay entertained, we want to help."
No doubt this particular freebie will go down a storm with Assassin's Creed fans. Set in a beautifully realised Renaissance-era Florence, Italy, the game follows cheeky sneaky chappy Ezio as he sets out to avenge the death of his father. It was a perfect sequel in every way, building on the formula established in Assassin's Creed while introducing plenty of cool new ideas.
If you've never played it, now is obviously the time to check it out. You could do a lot worse than free, after all.
