Assassin's Creed 2 is free again after the Valhalla reveal

Assassin's Creed 2 is free once again after Assassin's Creed Valhalla was unveiled earlier this week.

Assassin's Creed 2 is now free as part of a giveaway by Ubisoft. Players can download the game any time between now and May 5, at which point the download window will close at 7pm local time, regardless of regional disparity. It's noted that, unfortunately, the game is not available in Russian.

In order to install Assassin's Creed 2 for free, you'll also have to install the UPLAY PC app. Provided you've done that, the game should be added directly to your UPLAY library as soon as you click the download link.

For those who haven't played before, Assassin's Creed 2 centres on Ezio Auditore da Firenze and is set during the Italian Renaissance. As well as traversing the rooftops along Venetian canals and studying the ways of the assassin, Ezio becomes best buds with Leonardo da Vinci, an indie painter you probably haven't heard of.

If you're excited for Valhalla and want some quality, old-school Assassin's Creed, download UPLAY and grab the series' second entry free of charge.

Or, if you want to do something even better, you can check out all of the Valhalla coverage we've compiled on VG247 dot com, like how Ubi has officially confirmed that both the male and female protagonists in Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be considered canon, or how Valhalla officially has Viking rap battles.

Also, and this is quite the development: the hidden blade is no longer hidden, because Eivor thought it looked cool and strapped it to his/her forearm. Apparently Valhalla will feature longships, raiding, and epic battles, but raiding will be much more nuanced than you might expect.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be set in the four kingdoms of England as well as Norway, and has been heralded by Ubisoft as the “ultimate Viking fantasy.”
