'Assassin's Creed Origins' (ALL) Free To Play Through PC UPlay This Weekend

The latest installment in the open-world, action-adventure series, Assassin's Creed Origins is set in ancient Egypt.

For the last four years, the team at Ubisoft Montreal behind Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been crafting a new beginning for the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

In Assassin’s Creed Origins, the action takes place in Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape civilization. Playing as Bayek, a protector of Egypt whose personal story will lead to the creation of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, players will plunge into a living, systemic open world, and discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and – engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics – the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is a brand-new vision for the franchise embracing Action-RPG elements where players level up, loot and choose their abilities to customize their very own skilled Assassin. They will experience a completely new combat system, allowing them to attack and defend multiple enemies at once and equip ultra-rare weapons against unique and powerful bosses.

A revamped narrative experience allows total freedom for players to choose and complete quests at their own pace, each telling an intense and emotional story full of colorful characters and meaningful objectives.

With an entire country to explore, from deserts to lush oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against dangerous factions and wild beasts as they explore this gigantic and unpredictable land.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is available to play for free this weekend on Uplay, giving you the chance to stroll the bustling streets of Alexandria, sail the crocodile-infested waters of the Nile, and climb to the top of the Pyramids of Giza in an epic adventure set in the richly detailed open world of Ancient Egypt.

From June 19-21, PC players can take up the mantle of Bayek and begin a story that starts with revenge and leads to the founding of the Assassin Brotherhood.

Preload the game in Uplay today to hit the sand running, and visit the official Assassin’s Creed Origins Free Weekend website for exact timing and details.

Any progression made during the free weekend will carry over when the player upgrades to the full game on the same platform. An online connection might be required to start the game as a free player along with a subscription: players will be required to subscribe on Uplay to access the free weekend trial.
