After the debacle that surrounded the Assassin’s Creed Unity launch, Ubisoft has now stepped up to the plate and offered those who bought the Season Pass of the game are being given a free game of their choice from the company’s impressive line up of other popular titles such as The Crew, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Rayman Legends or Just Dance 2015.
To claim your free game, you can go here, choose the system you bought Assassin’s Creed for, then log into Uplay, Ubisoft’s online game distribution service. Gamers will also receive the game’s first DLC pack for free when it launches early next year, while those who have already bought a Season Pass, and thus have paid for all of the DLC upfront, will be given one of the games mentioned above in compensation for making their purchase worthless overall.
The launch issues of the game, especially on PC, created quite a firestorm regarding Ubisoft, yearly installments of franchises and even some referring to Ubisoft as the “new EA”. While those claims might be a bit much the launch problems were definitely present across all platforms though PC seemed to get the worst of it. The apology tour for Ubisoft and their latest entry into the successful Assassin’s Creed franchise continues with this latest effort to makeup for the early failings of the game. Our own Sean Winnett reviewed the game for the Nation (which you can read here) and found the game to be quite solid though technical problems did crop up now and then. Those who bought in wholesale on the Season Pass will be able to take advantage of this offer and grab a free game for it. (Editor’s recommendation: Get Far Cry 4. Seriously)
