An Underrated Assassin's Creed Is Free To Download Right Now

Looking for something new to play but don't really want to spend any money? We've got you covered. Ubisoft is giving away Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China for the low, low price of nothing on PC via UPLAY. From right now until February 16, all you need to do is swing by the game's UPLAY page and claim your free copy.


You might not be all that familiar with Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, but it's a pretty solid spinoff from the main games that turns the franchise from an open-world adventure into a 2.5D platformer. The game also attempts a more painterly aesthetic in an attempt to immerse players in interactive pieces of art, which is a pretty ace idea that mostly works well. Perhaps not your usual cup of tea, but well worth checking out at its current price of zero pounds and zero pence.

If you're still on the fence, you can check out a trailer for the game below. Again, I must stress, this is free right now.



"The first entry in the Assassin's Creed Chronicles saga takes place in China, 1526, as the Ming dynasty starts to crumble," Ubisoft writes. "You embody Shao Jun, the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, returning to her homeland with a vendetta. Slay from the shadows, master the art of parkour, and take the leap of faith in a collection of stunning, living paintings."

If nothing else, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China might help give you an idea as to why so many of us want to see the next core game in the series revisit the same sort of era. Concept art posted late last year by a Ubisoft employee showed off a medieval China setting. While these pieces were hardly confirmation of the next game's era and more likely Ubisoft just playing around with ideas, it was enough to get fans excited by the idea.


Still, it is worth noting that Ubisoft concept artist Michele Nucera shared some Assassin's Creed artwork via his own ArtStation back in 2018. That piece was called 'Vikings Village', and would later be linked to the upcoming Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Even if these concepts aren't officially for anything right now, there's a chance they could be one day. So what are you waiting for? Get stuck into Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China and see what all the fuss is about.
