Amid the COVID-19 situation, a lot of gamers have been given tons of love by publishers and devs with a slew of free games to help battle the boredom at home. Ubisoft has been one of those leading the charge of late, having made Assassin’s Creed Odyssey free-to-play for a limited time, as well as the likes of Child of Light and Rayman Legends free-to-keep.
It appears that another beloved Ubisoft entry, Assassin’s Creed 2, may be free to keep as well soon. According to an entry on German site mydealz.de (via industry analyst Daniel Ahmad), the critically-acclaimed second entry in the long-running franchise is slated to go free on uPlay on 14 April, so mark your calendars.
Additionally, it looks as though the game’s two sequels, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, will also go on sale on that date.
This particular trilogy of games in the franchise follows the story of Ezio Auditore, whose exploits have established him as arguably the most iconic protagonist of the entire series. As we wait for the pandemic to die down (and for the next Assassin’s Creed game), revisiting Ezio’s story could be one of the best ways to pass the time.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
