UPDATE: The game can now be claimed for free from Uplay
As bad as this quarantine is, video game developers have been trying to mellow the frustration by offering quite a few games for free lately. The latest one to join the list will be Ubisoft’s 2009 blockbuster Assassin’s Creed II.
Ubisoft have been generous with giving away past entries in the AC series lately. Assasin’s Creed: Unity was given away when the Notre Dame caught fire and Assasin’s Creed: Syndicate was given away recently, courtesy of Epic Games Store. This is not counting the times when Ubisoft gave away spinoff titles like Chronicles.
Assassin’s Creed II, in our opinion, is the best AC game to date. The game, while surrounded in an online-only DRM controversy, was an improvement over the first game in every way imaginable. AC II introduced the players to the now-iconic Ezio Auditore Da Firenze. Set in Renaissance-era Italy, the game followed the story of Ezio’s rise from a vengeful young man to the legendary assassin.
