Looks like Ubisoft is starting the Christmas season way ahead of schedule. To celebrate their 30 years in existence, Ubisoft has announced a special event called "30 Days of Giveaways," which starts today, November 24, and will run until December 23. That's right, you can pounce on the free goodies as soon as you finish reading this!
To get a taste of all the freebies, simply log in at 30days.ubi.com using your Ubisoft account and click on each date on the calendar every day. According to Ubisoft, most giveaways are unlimited, but some will be in limited supply and will only be available to the first players - a first come, first serve setup, in other words.
If you want to score every single one of the freebies, make it a habit to check the website before you attend to your eye boogers first thing in the morning. During the next 30 days, Ubisoft will give away select games and "special holiday decorations."
Perhaps the highlight is the unspecified three "latest titles" which will be given to only 300 players. This could mean any title from their 2016 lineup, including Far Cry Primal and Tom Clancy's The Division. The first one on the calendar is Rayman Classic for mobiles, a port of the original Rayman game.
Want even more good news? Turns out, you don't really have to wait every day to see what kind of freebie is in store for you: the entire lineup was discovered in the website's source code. You can check it out at Reddit, courtesy of Reddit user MrFujiKicker. In case you're too lazy to click the link, here's a quick summary of the important dates:
- November 25 - 30% discount on Ubisoft games
- December 7 - Assassin's Creed III on PC
- December 9 - the aforementioned 300 games giveaway
- December 15 - Prince of Persia on PC
- December 16 - Rayman Legends on PC
- December 17 - Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell on PC
- December 18 - The Crew on PC
Yep, all the free games won't be available until December (except Rayman Classic today). Unless you're interested in greeting cards and wallpapers, you only need to start stalking the website from December 7.
