Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is free to keep on PC through Ubisoft Connect

PC gamers can currently grab a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate on Ubisoft Connect

For a limited time, Ubisoft are giving away free PC copies of 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate for free through their Ubisoft Connect client. This free game promotion will be running until December 6th, giving PC gamers a chance to see 1868’s London through the eyes of twin Assassins.

While the game is from 2015, Syndicate remains visually impressive in 2023. The game’s interpretation of Industrial Revolution London looks incredible, and while technology has moved on, the game’s artistry is strong. While the game’s less visually impressive than its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed Unity, it also ran a lot better on PC and consoles at launch. If anything, Unity pushed PS4 and Xbox One too hard at launch, resulting in sub par framerates on both systems.

In Syndicate, players will control twin Assassins in the form of Jacob and Evie Frye. Jacob is a hot-headed brawler who specialises in combat, while Evie specialises in stealth and intelligence gathering. Players will control both Assassin’s throughout the game through linear missions and within the game’s large open world.

During the game, players will see historical figures like Darwin, Dickens, and even Queen Victoria. Syndicate is also the first Assassin’s Creed game to feature a grappling hook. On PC, Syndicate features support for Tobii Eye tracking, and PC-only graphical features like TXAA, HBAO+, and PCSS Shadows.

Unlike most newer AC games, Syndicate does not feature a levelling system or similar RPG mechanics. In many ways, Syndicate is more similar to this year’s AC: Mirage than it is to the games between them.

PC gamers can grab their free copy of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate through Ubisoft Connect. This free game promotion will end on December 6th at 1pm GMT. It is unknown if Ubisoft has any other game giveaways planned for December 2023.
