If you’re desperate for some fresh entertainment to help you soldier on through the pandemic, Ubisoft is offering PC gamers a free game to distract themselves with if they act quickly.
Announced via Twitter, from today until Sept. 7, Ubisoft is offering Tom Clancy’s The Division for free via its UPlay digital distribution service, which is also free to download and use. The Division was first released back in 2016 and classes as an online-only action role-playing experience set in an open world.
The game allows you to “specialize, modify, and level up your gear, weapons, and skills to take back New York on your own terms.” When it launched, PCMag’s review found the game presented an impressive recreation of New York City, offering an intense competitive multiplayer mode and interesting co-op encounters. We also offered up five reasons why it was worth your time to play the game, and now you can for free.
Grabbing your free copy simply requires you to visit the Ubisoft Giveaway page. If you already have a UPlay account setup, then simply login to add the game to your account. Otherwise, register a new UPlay account to get the game. After that, expect a download of just over 30GB before you can start playing.
