Ubisoft Giving Away World In Conflict + Expansion and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag For Free For The Holidays

Looking for something to play over the holidays but don’t have a huge budget? Thanks to Ubisoft’s yearly free games giveaway you won’t have to wait for Boxing Day sales or the Steam Holiday Sale to snag a few games. For $0 Ubi will be giving away 2007’s World In Conflict and the Soviet Assault expansion between now and December 11th. Miss out on the critically acclaimed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag? It’ll be free on U-Play between 11th and the 18th. All you have to do to claim these free games is visit Ubisoft’s official Holiday Play Days web site or sign into the U-Play launcher on PC. 

World In Conflict was originally released in September 2007 and recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. The Soviet Assault expansion followed two years later in 2009. Both were developed by Ubisoft owned Massive Entertainment, whose most notable achievement recently was the 2016 release of Tom Clancy’s The Division Multiplayer for World In Conflict and Soviet Assault was discontinued in 2015 but was revived by passionate fans earlier this year.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is the pirate-themed sixth console entry in Ubisoft’s 10-year-old stabby stabby series, originally released in 2013 on PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC. 

Development duties for Black Flag were split between Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Singapore. It also received a stand-alone add-on titled Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, which is not included in the base game.
