Ubisoft has announced that the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey can now be owned for free. The only catch is that players have to play the game for at least an hour on Google’s Project Stream streaming service till the 15th of January 2019 to qualify for this offer. Ubisoft is also throwing in an additional 1,000 helix credits for the participants to make things more interesting.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which was one of Ubisoft’s biggest releases of 2018, has been free-to-play on Google’s Project Stream for some time now. Currently, the offer is only available to players in the US, as that’s where the game is available for streaming via Google’s Project Stream at the moment. In order to play the game online, players need a broadband Internet connection with minimum speeds of 25Mbps. Since the service is accessible on Google’s Chrome browser, you don’t need powerful gaming-grade hardware to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the Project Stream service.
Even though the save data and items from the streaming version of the game can be transferred to the PC version being offered by Ubisoft, players will lose all the in-game currency collected in the streaming version. Also, the PC version will be available via Ubisoft’s Uplay PC gaming service.
