Ubisoft Offers Assassin’s Creed Odyssey For Free On PC

Assassin’s Creed is a well-known and beloved video game franchise. The series has a number of installments available and while most have us have become accustomed to a yearly release from Ubisoft, the development studio has alerted fans that there will not be an Assassin’s Creed video game release in 2019. As a result, you will need to make Assassin’s Creed Odyssey last so if you haven’t already purchased a copy, a new deal from Ubisoft may give you the incentive in spending an hour testing a new Google project.

The deal is pretty straightforward. You’ll receive a copy of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the Uplay service and all you have to do is play at least one hour of the game using Google’s Project Stream. This is basically a tech test for Google to see how their streaming service will handle and what better way to test it out then by offering gamers a completely free copy of a highly rated video game release this year. Outside of the game, however, players will receive some free Helix credits which are in-game currency for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to further boost your gameplay progress, though they are not required to enjoy the full game.

For those who are unaware of the game, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes place in ancient Greece where you play a decedent of Leonidas. However, early into the game, our protagonist is up against the wall dealing with family ties, an on-going war, and brutal mercenary work. This game is a bit different than some of the past Assassin’s Creed titles as there are more RPG elements tossed within which allows players to tweak their armor, weapons and skill sets. Not to mention there are choice based options that leads a branching narrative and multiple endings. You can watch our review of the game within our Before You Buy video posted above.

At any rate, if you are looking to get a copy then all you need to do is sign up for the free Project Stream test and play an hour of the game using the stream in order to receive the game completely after the test concludes on January 15, 2019.
