Ubisoft has celebrated it's 30th year anniversary giving away some gaming classics such as Beyond Good and Evil, Rayman Origins, Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia Sands of Time. They are rounding out the celebration with a final set of two games and Novembers game is the 80's retro themed shooter Far Cry Blood Dragon. If you haven't played this you absolutely should head over to the link below on November 9th and redeem it on your UPlay account. Blood Dragon is a standalone game built on the Far Cry 3 engine that was written like a spiritual sequel to old 80's classics such as Terminator, Tron and Predator. It's not a very long game and can be completed in well under 10 hours and doesn't require the latest and greatest PC hardware to run.

If the second to last giveaway is a FarCry game I am wondering if the final giveaway will be Assassins Creed?

I think I may need a reminder for when the game is available. I might check it out. I haven't played any Far Cry games, although I have been tempted to check out Far Cry Primal.

*This comment was edited because after posting it, I realized you posted when the game will be available.*

If you have an iPhone you can hit it and ask Siri to remind you to sign up to get Far Cry 3 on November 9th. I do it all the time and it reminds me to take out the trash when I get home and do things at certain times. It's way better than a list sometimes smile

I have a dumb phone, never owned a smart phone, nor an iPhone. However, I could set it up on the calendar I use on my phone for appointments and such.

I have noticed you playing a Far Cry game and thought about asking you about it. I don't recall which it was, could have been FC3. FC Primal does look interesting.

This year I finally finished up Far Cry 3(check my posts on it) and then started up Blood Dragon and played it till about half way then I stopped for some reason. I think maybe one reason is I just finished Far Cry 3 and I was kind of done with that kind of game at that time even though I much preferred Blood Dragon's unique style.
