It seems like just a few days ago that I was writing about Ubisoft’s latest free game but a quick check of the calendar confirms that happened nearly a month ago. How time flies!
Ubisoft’s free game for the month of October is Beyond Good and Evil, a third-person action-adventure game that debuted in 2003 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and Windows PC before finding its way to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011.
Beyond Good and Evil wasn’t really a commercial success but as Kotaku highlights, the game developed a devoted legion of fans and ultimately became a cult classic. It’s available as of writing from Steam for $9.99 but Ubisoft wants you to have it for free.
From now through roughly this time next month, Ubisoft is offering up the game free of charge through its digital distribution platform, Uplay.
Ubisoft launched its free game promotion back in June in celebration of its 30th anniversary. Each month since, Ubisoft has made a different game from its library available free of charge. Once downloaded, it’s yours to keep for good – no trials or expiration dates here.
Beyond Good and Evil joins The Crew, Rayman Origins, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. If you missed out on some of these games, fret not as there’s still time to grab this month’s freebie and two others coming up in November and December.
