Surprise Gift From Ubisoft: Play Assassin’s Creed Origins for Free This Weekend

Just a few months before we see the release of a new addition in the Assassin's Creed universe called Valhalla, Ubisoft has decided to surprise us by releasing 2016's Assassin’s Creed Origins for free on PC this weekend only.

Despite a few setbacks, 2020 promised to be a very good year for video games and the first 6 months really did deliver. But some players are impatiently awaiting the end of the year when several big hits are expected to drop. Among these games is the impossible-to-forget Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the new instalment of one of the most popular sagas of the 2000s.

Discover one of the saga's best games this weekend

After the first trailer was unveiled in April, which promised an even crazier adventure set in the time of the Vikings, the hype for this new game just keeps increasing, which proves this saga is just as popular as it always has been. After the disappointment we all felt after Unity and Syndicate, Ubisoft decided to go in a whole new direction with their latest games. They completely redesigned the style of the game for Assassin’s Creed Origins (2016), from the controls to the fighting style and the latest game even has an RPG aspect which really has paid off.

Ubisoft decided to completely redesign this game which takes place in Ancient Egypt and it really won over the critics and the players. And it’s also worth knowing that, for those who haven’t had the chance to play and experience this game, it will be available for free for PC… for this weekend only. For those of you who are interested, here is what you have to do: Go to Uplay to take advantage of this offer which is valid from Friday June 19 at 3pm to June 21 at 10pm.

With a huge map, a story full of twists and turns set in the time of the pharaohs, abundant side missions and this famous RPG dimension that adapts perfectly to the universe within the saga, we bet your weekend really will be full of adventure. It is even possible to take on war elephants… and here is our tip on how to defeat them. Of course, this offer is only available for the standard version of the game, so don’t expect any additional content. However, we’re not totally sure that one weekend is enough to completely finish the adventure…

It’s worth mentioning that it is already possible to pre-download the game if you want to take advantage of this offer. And with regards to your progress, don’t worry. If you decide to buy the game after this weekend, you will be able to pick up right where you left off. What a way to get yourself back in the swing of things before the release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla later this year…
