Assassin’s Creed III is the last full game Ubisoft is giving away on PC for its 30th Anniversary, and it’s available now through UPlay until the end of the month for Ubisoft Club members. The publisher had previously offered Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in June, Splinter Cell in July, Rayman Origins in August, The Crew in September, Beyond Good & Evil in October, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon in November.

Assassin’s Creed III originally launched in Fall 2012 to fairly positive reviews (Metacritic’s average for PC reviews is 80). It features half-English, half-Mohawk protagonist Connor as he fights the Templars in the 18th century right across the American Revolution.
