The Epic Games Store is at it again, and is currently giving away Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate for free to users on their digital storefront without requiring paid registration.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate was well received by both players and reviewers, who praised it for offering a novel approach to a crowded genre.
While free games are often offered by vendors like Sony and Microsoft, Epic Games Shop stands out from the competition since subscription is not compulsory.
Every Thursday, Epic Games offers new free games, and all you need is free registration with the gaming client.
Although not all of the titles are triple-A releases, they have in the past given away some rather significant titles. For instance, Legendary Games made the three Rocksteady Games Batman games inside the Arkham collection available last September as a way to honor Batman.
These included the most recent Arkham video game as well as Batman: Arkham Knight, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.
Other games offered in the past have included Making It Through Mars, Layers of Anxiety, and Wake’s American Nightmare.
The characters from the online games are truly experiencing the stories that are told in them in the present.
This is accomplished by using a piece of technology called Animus, which uses a person’s D.N.A. memories to create a virtual reality for them.
The Animus, which is run by a shady group believed to be the Templars, is often used for some nefarious purpose.
Popular review websites like I.G.N. and Gamespot gave the game good ratings, 8.2 out of 10 and 9 out of 10, respectively.
The fact that 2015 was a cheap year for video games contributed to the fact that the title was also nominated for several awards but never won them.
From now until the next week, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is free to download from the Epic Games Store.
