Download and play a classic now

When it comes to giving away regular free games and extended trials, few video game companies are as on the ball as Ubisoft.

Over the past few years, the publisher has given away classic Assassin’s Creed games, underrated Rayman rigs, and offered free weekends for newer games like far cry 6.

Now Ubisoft is once again letting players dive into a classic version completely free – but only for a limited time.

By April 18, PC gamers can jump into the city-building real-time strategy game Year 1800. Released in 2019, it is an in-depth simulation set during the 19th century industrial revolution that combines city management, naval combat and much more. Worth a look if you like that sort of thing, but you might find it hard to stop once the trial is over.

“Welcome to the 19th century. A century of industrialization, diplomatic strife, and discovery. Choose a path that will define the world,” reads the game’s official description. “Are you an innovator or an exploiter? A conqueror or a liberator? How the world will remember your name is up to you. »

You can start downloading the game right now through the Epic Games Store or Ubisoft Connect. Oh, and any progress you make will carry over if you decide to purchase the full game after April 18.

So what are you waiting for? Would you rather spend the Easter weekend in the sun with your friends and family gorging on barbecue and chocolate, or would you rather hide away and become the master of a virtual industrial revolution? The choice is yours.
