To celebrate the holiday season and the 10th anniversary of the first Assassin’s Creed game, Ubisoft is giving away the award-winning Assassin’s Creed IV : Black Flag from 18 to 23 December. Yes, it’s completely FREE, if you grab it before the offer expires!
Assassin’s Creed IV : Black Flag
Assassin’s Creed IV : Black Flag is an action-adventure game with a focus on stealth. It is the sixth game in the Assassin’s Creed series. In this installment, the setting is 18th century Caribbean, during the Golden Age of Piracy. The attempted establishment of a Republic of Pirates is a significant plot element.
Unlike previous games, gameplay elements focus more on ship-based exploration of the seamless open world map, while also retaining the series’ third-person land-based exploration, melee combat, and stealth system. Multiplayer also returns, albeit with only land-based modes and settings.
The game spans across the Caribbean with the three main cities of Havana, Nassau and Kingston along with numerous islands, sunken ships, and forts. Players have the option to harpoon large sea animals and hunt land animals.
For the first time in the series, naval exploration is a major part of an Assassin’s Creed game, where Edward Kenway captains the Jackdaw, a brig he captures from a Spanish fleet.
Assassin’s Creed IV : Black Flag won numerous awards and nominations, and was one of the best-selling games of 2013.
