That's right, Ubisoft has just released three (3) games available for free, legal download.

They are Far Cry (http://www.fileplanet.com/180410/180000/fileinfo/Far-Cry-Full-Game-%5BFree-Game---Ad-Supported%5D), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (http://www.fileplanet.com/180411/download/Prince-of-Persia:-Sands-of-Time-Full-Game-%5BFree-Game---Ad-Supported%5D), and Rayman Raving Rabbids (http://www.fileplanet.com/180428/180000/fileinfo/Rayman-Raving-Rabbids-%5BFree-Game---Ad-Supported%5D).

If you haven't had the opportunity or funds to try out these games, you do now! Enjoy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well that's certainly weird. I can't seem to get the Prince of Persia page up though, it keeps telling me to subscribe and then log-in... Weird. I'll probably download Far-Cry though.

Thanks for the tip!

wawawiwa, that's probably why the PoP trilogy was so cheap ($40)

You can sign up for free. They don't ever send you any ads or anything to your e-mail, either.

You've got to be kidding me. I was bored the other week, like on the 10th, and so I figured, "Meh, Far Cry, $10, I'll take it." I could have bought a pizza with that... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

@SCARFACE: The singleplayer is good for a runthrough at least once...and usually only once. I'm not sure about the multiplayer, though - haven't tried it. But hey, it's a free game and you get the full, updated version. The only problem is that there are McDonald's advertisements during the loading screen. But it's FREE. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Apparently you can't install the game anymore. I had the same problems (the install telling me I had to live in the US) so I asked Customer Support and they said it ended. What's unfair is that I downloaded the game on Monday and didn't get a chance to try and install it until yesterday, which was the day that the trial ended.

We have now the official word on this, courtesy of UbiRazz:



"The Ubisoft promotion allowing gamers to download and play the ad-supported PC games Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Far Cry, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon and Rayman Raving Rabbids for PC was a promotion designed exclusively for the US market over the Labor Day weekend. The promotion has now closed and consequently the hosting of files is no longer recommended."

Indeed, there are no illegal links in this thread.

Edit: Oh, the one scarface posted. Yeah, I suppose that could be considered supporting piracy. Which is bad. Very bad. Because Ubisoft moderator rules dictate that everyone in this thread should now be banned.

It's up to our CM, actually. What they say goes. Luckily, I don't know of many CMs that actually enforce that particular rule. Most only ban the one person who brought up the topic. Perhaps I should stop here.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Speaking of which, who is our CM, anyways?

FCY-ETC
09-12-2007, 03:44 PM
It's actually up to the mods to decide what they want to do. A CM could override that decision if they'd want to, but usually they don't even get involved in this sort of thing.

Cooldude: we currently don't really have a CM for AC. 'Razz is doing his best to take over as many of Rick's former tasks as possible on the UK side - at least until they have a replacement. But he's got many many other things to take care of as well, considering he left his CM position for a different one within Ubisoft earlier this year. He's a busy little bee...
