Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag And World In Conflict Are Free This Month

Ubisoft just announced that it was giving away two free games for December, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and the World War II RTS game World In Conflict: Complete Edition. Both titles are available for download at no charge but it needs to be done within the time limit. There’s no hidden agenda either and players can keep both games forever.

As one of the most critically-acclaimed titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise following the Ezio arc, Black Flag is one title that a lot of gamers might want to get their hands on. Starting December 11th to 18th, they can do so for free, PC Gamer reports. Players simply need to have an account on Ubisoft’s Uplay client and download the game from there.

World In Conflict, meanwhile, is available today up until December 11th. Fans of the RTS genre and ones that are set in WWII specifically might want to give this title a shot. Released in 2007, the graphics have not aged well, but the mechanics are still spot on. It was developed by the same studio behind The Division and Far Cry 3.

Of course, there’s no point pretending that the majority gamers won’t want to download Black Flag more than World In Conflict, especially if it’s free. The game was a pioneer in many respects, practically igniting the open-sea pirate battle genre single-handedly. Featuring gorgeous open-world settings, breath-taking water graphics and physics, and a rich marine environment, there was just so much to do in Black Flag.

As to why Ubisoft is giving away these games, the company blog post indicates that it was to celebrate the 10-year anniversaries of both franchises. The first Assassin’s Creed game was launched in 2007 and the post describes what players who haven’t tried Black Flag can expect from it.

“In Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, you are Edward Kenway, a pirate out to make a name for himself on the tumultuous Caribbean seas by sailing your ship among the isles in search of plunder, attacking enemy vessels, and diving below the waves for lost treasures. Become embroiled in the conflicts of the era and discover your connection to the series’ age-old struggle between the Assassins and the Templars,” the blog post reads.
