Assassin’s Creed 3 goes free and crashes Ubisoft servers in the process

Assassin’s Creed 3 is free on PC for the next month for Ubisoft’s 30th anniversary giveaway. 30 years is a hell of a lot of time to be in the business of making games, and AC3 is 4 years old itself. They’ve done a pretty good job, but are apparently experiencing server load issues due to the massive demand for the free copy of AC3.

Here’s how to get a free Ubisoft game every month.

The game is available from the publishers Uplay service Ubisoft Club and the promotion runs for 1 more month. What can you expect when you give a ravenous bunch of broke gamers access to a free premium title. Assassin’s Creed 3 was set during the American revolution and received many positive reviews from critics when initially released.



Ubisoft have been doing these giveaways every month since summer and have also given away Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Splinter Cell, Rayman Origins, The Crew, and Beyond Good and Evil.
