'Assassin's Creed 3' Is Now Free On The PC: Game Publisher Ubisoft To Release 30 Games As Part of '30th Birthday Celebration'

Players who have yet to know the story of Connor from "Assassin's Creed 3" are in for a treat. Save up all your money because for the rest of December, game publisher Ubisoft is giving away the game for free! In fact, Ubisoft is releasing 30 more games for free as part of its 30th birthday celebration.

According to, Ubisoft has been giving away free games to Ubisoft Uplay members since June as part of their 30th anniversary celebration. From June 2016, the game publisher has put up for free download "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time"; in July, the original "Splinter Cell"; August with the lovable "Rayman Origins"; September with "The Crew"; "Beyond Good and Evil" on October and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon last November.

Ubisoft is reported to have begun a "30 Days of Giveaways" event that allows gamers to log in their Ubisoft accounts and open up "presents" by clicking on them. Anyone who is a Uplay member since November 24 can retrieve their goodies.

While it is generous of Ubisoft to give gamers a truly great game as a gift, it has affected its servers in the process. According to, Ubisoft's free giveaways are "murdering their servers". Their report indicates that players who want to get their free download will need to wait as the servers are struggling to keep up with demand.

"Assassin's Creed 3" is set during the American Revolution and follows the story of Connor, an ancestor of Desmond from the original "Assassin's Creed" and their journey to find a solution to reverse the 2012 apocalypse that happened in Desmond's timeline.

Sadly, the upcoming "Assassin's Creed" movie may not be congruent with the game timeline. But it is still definitely worth watching as it stars veteran actors Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

Game Publisher Ubisoft is planning to expand its series of games to the Nintendo Switch. According to Ubisoft France Managing Director Xavier Poix, it would change its design philosophy when it comes to designing games to accommodate both mobile and hardcore gamers.
