- Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is the ninth mainline installment in the long-running AC franchise.
- At the moment, Ubisoft is giving away Syndicate for free, but the offer won’t stick around forever.
- Users have until December 6 to redeem the game for free. It’s game over afterward.
Referred to as “underrated” by many, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is a London-set Assassin’s Creed game that came out all the way back in 2015. However, it’s only now that Ubisoft is giving it away for free—no major caveats involved. Just head over to its official storefront and redeem the title from there, but make sure to do it by December 6 if you plan on making the best of this offer.
Although the listing on the page mentions both Xbox and PlayStation platforms, the giveaway is only for PC. As such, you will also need the Ubisoft Connect launcher to play the game—Steam and Epic Games won’t cut it this time around. But yes, that’s pretty much about it as far as the caveats are concerned. You get to keep Assassin’s Creed Syndicate for free genuinely apart from all of the latter.
Marking itself as one of the major installments in the Assassin’s Creed series of action-adventure, open-world games, Syndicate is the first to feature London as its playground, with the backdrop being centered on the Second Industrial Revolution, otherwise known as the Technological Revolution. The protagonists featured are the Frye twins, Jacob Frye and Evie Frye, with both of them being playable throughout.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is going down as a fairly underrated Assassin’s Creed title, given how it launched to lukewarm reception back in the day. A Ubisoft exec cited Unity — the predecessor of Syndicate — as the reason for the game’s lackluster sales, given how Assassin’s Creed Unity was filled to the brim with bugs and glitches when it made landfall in 2014.
Anyhow, you certainly won’t lose any money trying out the game now, so best to give it a go and see for yourself how the combat system that it “revised” plays out, followed by the practicality of the then-latest Rope Launcher for more convenient traversal. Save for a few hiccups here and there, Syndicate is a cool experience, at least monumentally better than Unity—something that I couldn’t get into personally.
On a side note, Ubisoft just wrapped things up with Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which is the latest AC game out there at the moment. Apparently, it’s turned out to be the developer’s biggest next-gen launch to date, raking in sales par expectations. Given how it’s done so well, it’s likely that Ubisoft Bordeaux is working on another Assassin’s Creed game, but there’s no official confirmation on that front yet.
Syndicate came out on October 13, 2015, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, followed by a port to PC in the year after. If you end up redeeming the title for free, keep this AC Syndicate survival guide handy to start off on the right foot.
