Founded in March 1986, Ubisoft has been around for 30 long years and to celebrate that, the Ubisoft Club is giving away a free PC game every month for the rest of the year. The promotion has already begun and the free game for this month is Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell. Note that the giveaway is a full digital download, not a trial, and its yours to keep even after the promo is over!
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell is a stealth-oriented action game set in a Tom Clancy-inspired landscape. The player takes on the role of Sam Fisher, an operative for the National Security Agency’s sub agency, the Third Echelon. All kinds of cool high-tech gadgets are at your disposal to help you neutralise terrorist threats. Night vision, thermal vision, EM sensors, sticky cams, and other whiz-bang tech toys help you spot the bad guys, and your broad array of weapons–lethal and not–include suppressed pistols and assault rifles, sticky shock bombs, Ring-Airfoil Projectiles, and the most lethal weapon of all: Sam Fisher himself.
Climb, mantle, and sneak your way through a game that won E3 2002’s “Best Action/Adventure Game” official award as well as the Game Developer’s Choice Award for Excellent in Writing. With a tightly-written plot, unbeatable mechanics, and an iconic character, it’s no wonder this is the start of a long–and excellent–series, with five sequels, seven novels, and a forthcoming motion picture.
You can head to the Ubi 30 giveaway page here to claim your free game. You will need to have uPlay client installed to download the game after claiming. It’s not clear what other games they will hand out in the upcoming months so stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated.
