    Ubisoft is here to spread the holiday cheer, as they're giving away little tidbits and even games all this week. Monday's gift was an outfit and settlement pack for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, while the second day of giveaways was for a free copy of Starlink: Battle for Atlas on their exclusive PC client, Ubisoft Connect. They'll be giving away other goodies up until Friday, December 18th, so be sure to check back each day to claim whatever Ubisoft has on offer until then.

    • Day 1: Assassin's Creed: Valhalla seafarer settlement pack & legendary Bayek outfit
    • Day 2: Starlink: Battle for Atlas
    • Day 3: Watch Dogs®: Legion Rewards Pack
    • Day 4: Trials Rising
    • Rewards pack for Hyper Scape

    The games need not only the Ubisoft client to be installed but also to run, so no thank you.

    So do games from Steam and Epic. Where are you getting your games these days? GOG only?

    Personally, I find it really dumb for a game sold on Steam to require an entirely separate storefront/launcher to be installed and open in order to run said game. Like, isn't the one storefront/launcher, the one I bought the game from, enough?

    And guess who's the biggest culprit of this nonsense - Ubisoft. Sometimes EA too, but mostly U-Play.

    I won't be complaining about the free stuff, but I get really disappointed at the lack of consistency in Ubisoft's website.

    I was browsing their website minutes ago when I've came across this:

    Screenshot_20201216-083328.png Screenshot_20201216-083341.png

    Why do they have a lower price showing in the list and when you open it you get the full price? :mellow:

    This is not the first time I come across something like this in their website. What makes me really annoyed is that, for a few seconds, it gives you a sense of false hope in saving a substantial amount of money and then you open it and there you go: full price! :glare:

    Would it be worth to report it to Ubisoft and try my luck getting the lower price? Probably not. :rofl:

    Wait, day one was today or yesterday? Just checked it out and it was Starlink, not the Valhalla DLC.

    Matter of principle. Some don't want more than one client to run on their computer. Some may view multiple as a security risk. Some don't like that company's practices. Me? All of the above for Epic Games. And honestly don't want an entirely seperate hub-client (ALA Steam, Epic, etc) on my computer. Why would I need the Ubisoft Hub when I have Steam as my Hub?

    I use Playnite (sometimes Gog Galaxy 2.0 but I'm always coming back to Playnite) and configure the launchers to shut down when I launch a game/leave a game, the only launcher that doesn't allow me to do this is Origin, I always have to shutdown the launcher myself. But yeah, at least it doesn't restrict me to store choices.

    almost 2021 and people still complaining about launchers...

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    was given free multiple times recently (by Ubisoft and Epic if I recall), not worth that retail price <_<

    I remember they had the Watch Dogs for free in their website a couple of times. But never seen the second one for free. And it's the first time I've seen it so cheap (£14.99) but in the end you can't buy it for less than the retail price (£49.99). At least in the UK. Not sure about other places, but I assume it's pretty much the same. :unsure:

    Please tell me that I'm wrong and that it is actually cheaper in the US market. :mellow:

    People complaining about getting free games? I just got 2 questions:

    1- Wasn't personal computers meant to run multiple computer programs?

    2- Are you really complaining about privacy and data security while typing a reply on your chrome browser installed on your windows 10 machine?

    it was offered for free from Ubisoft after their Twitch Drop fiasco during one of their events, and recently was also one of the Epic Store free games.

    You're right, I remember now, since you've mentioned the online events! I've tried to get it at the time, but their website had a lot of issues and didn't allow me to confirm the order, so I gave up. In the end, that didn't count as a "freebie" for me. :mellow:

    Not even free stuff will get me to risk playing AC Valhalla on my PS4 again, where it crashes so bad it locks up the entire console so even the power button doesn't respond. Had to unplug the damn thing. ACV is sitting on the shelf of shame, and only because I got it unboxed off eBay for cheap so I can't just run it down to CEX for a quick cash-back. Might throw it back up on eBay where it belongs if I can be bothered.
