Ubisoft will reportedly be gifting free copies of one of its most popular Assassin’s Creed titles next week. According to industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, franchise fans will be able to score Assassin’s Creed II via Uplay, the publisher’s digital game store and launcher, on April 16.
A Chinese advertisement for the promotion suggests that this freebie will apply to most, if not all, regions. The ad also reveals that Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will be on sale for those who want to complete the Ezio Trilogy.
Released in 2009, Assassin’s Creed II is the game that introduced master assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze and made him a fan favorite. It took players to the height of the Renaissance in Italy during the 15th and early 16th century.
Rich in art, culture, greed and corruption, Renaissance-era Italy serves as the backdrop for Assassin’s Creed II, the follow-up to the best-selling debut title in the Assassin’s Creed series. Gain a deeper understanding of the secretive Assassin Order as you follow a new hero, the charming and free-spirited Ezio Auditore de Firenze. When de Firenze’s family is betrayed, the young nobleman steals away to the canals of Venice, where he learns the ways and weapons of the assassins. Experience an epic storyline of loyalty and revenge as your hero challenges Italy’s most powerful families and completes his transformation to master assassin.
