Ubisoft is celebrating its 30th anniversary and as a tribute to loyal gamers, the company is giving away one free PC game every month. "Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon" is Ubisoft's giveaway game for November.
This year, Ubisoft is celebrating its 30th year in the gaming industry. To give back to their loyal fans, Ubisoft started giving away a PC game every month. The promotion started in June and will run until December, according to Tech Radar. Ubisoft has already given away "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell," and "Beyond Good and Evil."
For the month of November, Ubisoft is giving away "Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon." Ubisoft's announcement read, "This month we offer you Far Cry® 3: Blood Dragon, THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter. Welcome to an 80's vision of the future."
"Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon" is one of the first open-world video games created by Ubisoft. It has an 80s action-filled theme although the timeline is set in a more recent year. It features an open-world forest, bright neon lights, explosive guns, and free-range dinosaurs with laser eyes.
According to the game's Steam description, "The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world. Experience every cliché of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide."
The game's protagonist is voiced by Biehn, who played Kyle Reese in the first "Terminator" movie. "Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon" was made available to download for free on PC starting Nov. 9, and the offer will only last until Dec. 6. For gamers to avail of the free download, they must first create a Uplay account.
"Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon" is available for free on Ubisoft to gamers who have their own Uplay account.
