Every month from June through December, game developer and publisher Ubisoft is offering a free digital title from its vast catalog to PC gamers. The company started with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in June, gave away The Crew last month and is now giving everyone a chance to pick up Beyond Good & Evil for free.
Another month, another free game from Ubisoft.
Back in June, video game developer and publisher Ubisoft celebrated its 30th anniversary by launching UBI30, a promotion which would bring seven free games to PC gamers in 2016 — one for each month left in the year.

In celebration of both E3 2016 and the studio’s 30th anniversary, Ubisoft is giving away one free game from its extensive catalog every month for the rest of the year, starting with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in June.
We’re still a few days away from the first E3 2016 press conferences, but Ubisoft decided to get a head start with a world premiere live stream for Watch Dogs 2 on Wednesday. Thanks to a leaked advertisement, we already know that the open world sequel will take place in San Francisco and will launch this November, but there’s still plenty for Ubisoft to reveal on the stream today.
We always knew that a sequel to Watch Dogs was inevitable, but on Monday, Ubisoft finally made it official with the release of a short teaser trailer. Along with the trailer, the studio also announced that it would host a Watch Dogs 2 world premiere event on June 8th at 12PM ET on WatchDogs.com, but didn’t share any further details about the game or when it would launch.
Unfortunately, an advertisement appearing on IGN Tuesday morning spoiled the surprise, revealing the game’s release date and new setting.
Much like the characters featured in the game itself, Ghost Recon Wildlands has been surprisingly hard to find over the past several months. After being unveiled at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference last year, Wildlands immediately went into hiding, with nary a screenshot or a trailer to be found.
In fact, I’d nearly forgotten the game even existed. Until today. More →
The Division, one of the most anticipated games of the year will be on store shelves in less than 24 hours, but a huge leak over the weekend revealed just about everything there is to know about the game ahead of time.
Far Cry Primal, one of the biggest game releases of 2016 so far, hit store shelves this week. It’s been sixteen months since Far Cry 4 launched, and although that might not sound like an especially long wait, the series has gone through some major changes in the interim, including a several thousand-year jump into the past.
So which tour guides would you choose to guide you through 10,000 BCE? How about Conan O’Brien and popular YouTube personality PewDiePie?
It’s Monday, which means The Division open beta has come to a close. Thousands of PS4, Xbox One and PC gamers had a chance to either jump back into disease-ridden New York City or visit it for the very first time, and although there were only a few new additions from the closed beta, there were still plenty of highlights caught on video.

Starting today, PS4 and PC owners can now join Xbox One players in The Division open beta. In case you haven’t heard, The Division is a new third-person shooter/RPG hybrid set in a post-apocalyptic New York City, ravaged by a terrible disease that was spread through banknotes on Black Friday.
The game doesn’t launch until March 8th, but the open beta this weekend gives everyone a chance to try the game out a few weeks early. And that’s exactly what we’ll be doing in the live stream that will kick off around 5:30 p.m. ET. More →
After a successful closed beta test at the end of last month, Tom Clancy’s The Division returns to Xbox One, PS4 and PC this week for an open beta that anyone can participate in. If you played the closed beta in January, you’ve already seen a majority of the content that will be on display, but there are a few additions that might be worth checking out. More →
Better late than never. On Thursday, Ubisoft confirmed the rumors that the Assassin’s Creed series would be taking a year off for the first time since 2008. It didn’t come as much of a surprise, as rumors of the decision had been circulating for months, but it was a sigh of relief for fans of the flagging franchise.
If Assassin’s Creed is going to survive the generation, Ubisoft needs to take a step back and re-examine one of its biggest properties. More →
