The “Special Weekend” event is being run though the company’s Ubisoft Club platform, so you will need an account to access the games, but it’s quite a selection of titles. Freely available for the next few days are: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Rayman Origins, The Crew, Beyond Good and Evil, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Assassin’s Creed III.
That’s quite a good spread of different types of games. There are some stealth-focused titles, some action and platformers, and a fun, ’80s inspired shooter, too. There should be something for everyone in there.
To secure your own copies of these games, head into your Ubisoft Club account, or create one and then click the “Get your Bundle,” link (thanks TechSpot). From there, all games will automatically be added to your account and you can download and play them through Uplay at your leisure. Alternatively, you can wait and play them later; they aren’t going anywhere, they are yours to keep forever.
If you’re not feeling up to the strenuous task of clicking a few links right now, or for whatever reason don’t want all of those games, you will have a little longer to claim Assassin’s Creed III. That particular title will still be up for grabs until the end of December. Of course that’s not quite as impressive a giveaway as this one, so if you anticipate wanting to play any of the above titles in the future, make sure you register them now to avoid any regrets.
