Ubisoft Gives Away World in Conflict & Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag for Free

Holidays are the perfect occasion to spend time with friends, family and have fun playing games! Just in time for the festive season, Ubisoft is giving two digital PC games away for FREE as part of its Happy Playdays! Players will have the opportunity to polish their strategy with World in Conflict and experience the Golden Age of Pirates with Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag. In addition to celebrate the festive season, Ubisoft is marking the 10th anniversary of both World in Conflict's launch and the creation of the Assassin's Creed's universe.

Ubisoft Massive released World in Conflict in September 2007, an innovative RTS game in a Cold War setting. A single-player expansion called Soviet Assault followed in 2009. The game features both a strong and captivating single-player campaign and an intense multiplayer section that supports up to 16 players. With many other features, including Voice Over IP, amazing graphics and completely destructible battlefields, World in Conflict is an intense strategy experience unlike anything you've ever seen before. Released to high critical acclaim, it has been called one of the best strategy games ever made.
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag includes compelling characters, an extensive world, and an infinite amount of pirate activities to engage in. It begins in 1715, when pirates established a lawless Republic in the Caribbean and ruled the land and seas. These outlaws paralyzed navies, halted international trades, and plundered vast fortunes. They threatened the power structures that ruled Europe, inspired the imagination of millions, and left a legacy that still endures. From Kingston to Nassau, explore 50 unique locations where you can live the life of a pirate as Edward Kenway. Captain and customise your own ship, search for lost treasures, hunt rare animals and loot underwater shipwrecks.

World in Conflict (including the expansion Soviet Assault) will be FREE and downloadable for PC from December 4th to December 11th. Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on PC will be available for FREE from December 11th to December 18th.

World in Confilict still is a great game imho. Bought and played it back in its prime time and had much fan. Good for anyone who likes strategy games to get it and try that for free now. Black Flag is great game judging by the reviews but unoptimised especially for amd gpus from what I have read as most of AC games. Some settings help with that though.

I was always kind of interested in World in Conflict - never picked it up though. I may have to poke around on the game to see what I think.

As for AC:BF, since I'm slowly making my way through AC:Rogue, I may as well pick this up since Rogue takes place right after it....I might as well fill in the blanks of any story pieces between AC:III and Rogue.

I'd appreciate if someone reminds us all when Black Flag will be set free. Otherwise we'll forget...

Is this free to play for a week, or free to keep forever? I've heard good things about Black Flag and the only way you can get me to use uPlay is for free, so it seems like it is the right price...

No, thanks, forever.

Lost their previous giveaway last year, I think, because I tried to create an account on 5 different devices for 3 days and it wouldn't let me.

Free to keep, just register with Ubisoft Club, which comes with your Uplay account anyway. For the record, NO you won't get bombed with ad infested email from Ubi. I've never had one.

Really, there's no reason to avoid Uplay for a free game IMO. If they want to DRM free stuff, by all means. For a paid title, I can fully understand the sentiment versus Uplay, because it still is a POS.

Be prepared for "Uplay is currently unavailable" problem, which also happened when they gave Assassins' Creed 3 for free.

If you still don't have a Uplay account yet, I suggest you sign up for one right now before the AC4 becomes free, since a lot of people will try to sign up to get it and the servers will be overload.

This is exactly what I'm talking about:
