Winter is a good time to be a gamer. There are Christmas competitions left and right and a boatload of free time to dig into the industry’s biggest titles. Also in the name of festive cheer and chilly weather are the many sales. Steam are about to launch their very own discount bonanza but Ubisoft is a contender too as in their Winter sale they have discounts of up to 80% on over 300 games. More details and bargain picks after the break.
Ubisoft Launches Massive Winter Sale
Their sale, the publisher says, lasts right up until January (it ends on the 4th of January, 2015) meaning that you’ve got more than enough time to take advantage of the bargains. How it works is that Ubisoft will offer a vairety of daily and “long term” deals for as long as the promotion lasts.
From what I can gather, it’s their PC downloads that will have the most money shaved off of them. Here, there are daily deals of up to 80% off and there are further reductions across the 33% and 50% off price ranges. And, season pass and DLC will be discounted too although these have yet to have been uploaded to the Winter sales hub.
As for those who prefer physical PC games or are playing on consoles (PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii and Wii U), Ubisoft has said that there will be 30% off on “all” of their physical catalogue. ‘All’ apparently excludes Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Far Cry 4, The Crew and Just Dance 2015 which is fair as these have only recently been released.
According to the email that Ubisoft sent our way, it’s not just their games that are on sale either. The likes of Tomb Raider, Saints Row IV, Metro Redux and even The Walking Dead: Season Two will be discounted at some point, alongside Ubisoft’s own e.g Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Watch Dogs.
Also, if you’re not in the market for some new games – there’s now 40% off on Ubisoft collectibles too so if you want to bag yourself an Aiden Pearce figuring, now’s your chance.
UPDATE – Ubisoft hasn’t clarified which regions the sale is available in other than Europe. I’ll post information about Ubisoft sales in other territories as and when I receive it.
