Ubisoft's Next Free PC Game Arrives Soon
Grab another freebie starting on October 12.
The next free game from the ongoing Ubisoft Club promotion arrives next week, the company announced today.
Beyond Good & Evil arrives as a freebie on October 12, taking the place of the current free Club game, The Crew, Ubisoft said on Twitter. Assuming it works like the previous games, which have also included Rayman Origins and Splinter Cell, you'll have about a month to download it for free. By doing so, it'll permanently be yours.
Come October 12, you'll be able to claim the game for free by signing into the Ubisoft Club website with your Uplay account (you can sign up for free if you don't have one). If you haven't already, you can still claim The Crew from the same site.
These games are being offered for free as part of Ubisoft's 30th anniversary celebration. There are still more games to come, with the promotion running through the end of the year.
While it's likely a coincidence that Beyond Good & Evil is being offered for free right now, it's impossible not to mention the recent teases by creator Michel Ancel regarding Beyond Good & Evil 2. In June, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said Ancel was working on the long-awaited sequel, and Ancel recently began publishing images online that are presumed to be from the game. Just this week, he indicated it's currently in pre-production.
