Attention, PC gamers! If you love free games, there's quite a big one to grab. Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Syndicate is completely free to pick up and keep right now, so take this as a PSA for anyone who doesn't own the game yet.
Released in 2015 to a rather decent reception (76/100 Metacritic score), Assassin's Creed Syndicate plays off in London in 1868, at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, where you lead and grow your underworld organization. Sounds kinda fun, doesn't it?
How To Get AC Syndicate For Free
First up, if our intro wasn't abundantly clear already, this is a PC freebie. All you need to do is head on over to the official Assassin's Creed Syndicate page on the Ubisoft Store, select the giveaway option and click "Play Now" to install it.
You will, of course, need to have a Ubisoft account, but no subscription to Ubisoft+ is required. This free offer expires on 6 December 2023 in your local time. The countdown timer before the offer expires can be found below in UTC.
If you grab AC Syndicate before the giveaway timer expires, it will be yours to keep and play forever, or at least until the inevitable kitten robot uprising occurs and dooms us all.
Assassin's Creed Syndicate Features
To give you a taste of what to expect in Assassin's Creed Syndicate, check out the game's official features list below.
- Champion justice: As Jacob Frye, a young and reckless Assassin, use your skills to help those trampled by the march of progress. From freeing exploited children used as slave labour in factories, to stealing precious assets from enemy boats, you will stop at nothing to bring justice back to London’s streets.
- Command London’s underworld: To reclaim London for the people, you will need an army. As a gang leader, strengthen your stronghold and rally rival gang members to your cause, in order to take back the capital from the Templars’ hold.
- A new dynamic fighting system: In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, action is fast-paced and brutal. As a master of combat, combine powerful multi-kills and countermoves to strike your enemies down.
- A whole new arsenal: Choose your own way to fight enemies. Take advantage of the Rope Launcher technology to be as stealthy as ever and strike with your Hidden Blade. Or choose the kukri knife and the brass knuckles to get the drop on your enemies.
- A new age of transportation: In London, the systemic vehicles offer an ever-changing environment. Drive carriages to chase your target, use your parkour skills to engage in epic fights atop high-speed trains, or make your own way amongst the boats of the River Thames.
- A vast open world: Travel the city at the height of the Industrial Revolution and meet iconic historical figures. From Westminster to Whitechapel, you will come across Darwin, Dickens, Queen Victoria… and many more.
- A sharper focus: Take aim, engage in combat or launch a grappling hook by keeping your target in sight with Tobii Eye Tracking. The Clean UI lets you focus on the matter at hand while the Extended View and Dynamic Light features increase your immersion, making you dive even deeper into the thrilling adventure in the streets of London.
