Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is a free game, forever, if you get it now

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Ubisoft’s 2015 stealth hit and precursor to AC Mirage, is a free game forever so long as you redeem it in time.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate free game: A hero from Ubisoft stealth game Assassin's Creed Syndicate

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has one of the best settings in the entire AC series. That murky, rainy, Industrial Revolution London forms the perfect backdrop for the ongoing battle between the Order and the Templars – a grimy, smoke-and-soot-filled metropolis where something sinister lurks down every alley. Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes AC back to its more stealth-driven roots, with Infinity, Assassin’s Creed Red, and the still-enigmatic Hexe also booked to push the series in various new directions. Syndicate, meanwhile, remains the closest AC has come to the modern world. One of the real curios of the series, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is now free via Ubisoft Connect, to keep forever. But you need to get it quick.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is about as different from Mirage as you can imagine. With a (relatively) contemporary setting, huge open world, and focus on the bigger picture of the Assassins versus Templars story, rather than individual characters, it’s one of the larger scale AC games, only overshadowed later by Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla. If you’ve never played it, or want to give it another go around, AC Syndicate is now a completely free PC game, to keep, via Ubisoft Connect. You just need to claim it in time.
