Free Assassin’s Creed III Remastered for Switch/PS4/XO Via GameStop
Assassin’s Creed III Remastered can currently be obtained for free on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One via retailer GameStop.
As spotted by eagle-eyed deal spotter Wario64, the remaster from 2019 is now being offered for free with customers only paying for the shipping costs. At the moment of writing, there’s still a limited number of PS4 copies available through the retailer although we’re pretty sure that these will sell out quickly enough. As a matter of fact – the Xbox One and Switch version already appear to have sold out.
