Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Origins is free-to-play this weekend.
Assassin’s Creed Origins was a significant departure for Ubisoft’s long-running action-adventure franchise. Realising that the series was beginning to become stale, Ubisoft reinvented it, adding in RPG elements, revising the combat, and ditching some of its ageing tropes.
The result was a huge success and the set the template that was expanded upon by 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and this year’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Ubisoft has confirmed the game will be free to play on PC from June 19-21 via its Uplay platform.
Set in Ancient Egypt, Origins follows the story of Bayek, one of the first Assassins. It’s a sprawling and often magnificent game which explores both the real-world history of the region and the fictional lore of the series.
The game is definitely worth playing and is available to pre-load now from the Ubisoft website.
