Action-adventure stealth game Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be available for free on the Ubisoft Store until Dec 6 at 2pm. The 2015 title is usually priced at RM125.

Users who claim the game on the Ubisoft Store will be able to download and play it on all supported platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox.

Console users will however need to link their Ubisoft account with their console account beforehand in order to access the game.

Part of the long-running Assassin's Creed series, Syndicate is set in 1868 London during the Industrial Revolution and puts players in the shoes of twin protagonists Jacob and Evie Frye, with a unique playstyle for each character.

Syndicate was the last title that stuck to the legacy stealth action-based gameplay of the earlier entries into the series, which has since been revisited with this year's Assassin's Creed Mirage.

The offer comes after gamers complained that annoying pop-up ads for the latest release, Mirage, were being shown in older Assassin's Creed games on Xbox and PlayStation over the Black Friday weekend.

These ads would be shown during gameplay and when users opened the map in the menu screen.

Ubisoft itself addressed the issue on Twitter (formerly X), stating that this was a result of a technical error that has since been fixed, with the original intent being to have the pop-ups appear only on the main menu screens of older titles.

However, some users claim that the location of the ads had been intentional, saying that the issue had been present in Assassin's Creed Odyssey as far back as 2019.
