Nothing beats an awesome car game that’s free!

Obviously, you like car’s or otherwise you wouldn’t be here. But, do you like video games? Do you like free video games? Well if you do, then we’ve got something to tell you that’s going to make your day, and maybe even the rest of your week. Ubisoft, the maker of games like Assassin’s Creed and FarCry, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. As such, it has been offering one game for free each month for the PC. So far, the company has given away Prince of Persia for June, Splinter Cell for July, Rayman Origins for August, and for September the company is giving away it’s resident car game, The Crew.

The Crew is an open-world game that is based in the United States. The story behind the game is to gain rank in a gang known as the 510s. As you gain rep, the game progresses, and you work toward taking down their activities across the country. The game is available on Xbox and PS4, but it looks like it is only available for free on the PC. The free download is being offered through Uplay, and once you’ve downloaded the game, you get to keep it forever. But, you better act fast. Once September comes to an end, this offer will be gone. Ubisoft will offer another free game for each of the remaining three months of the year, so it might not be a bad idea to check their website come October to see what else they are offering.

If you don’t have a Uplay account, don’t worry. It’s free to set one up, and you can even create one using your Facebook, Playstation Network, or your Xbox Live account. And, while some of the games that have been given away so far are somewhat dated, Ubisoft is still producing fresh content for The Crew and is planning a new DLC pack with 12 new missions and new cars in late November. To claim your free game, head to Ubisoft’s website here.

Why it Matters

Some of the games that Ubisoft has given away free so far this year are pretty old and can be attained for $10 or $20 online or in a store. But, the Crew commonly goes for anywhere between $30 and $40, which makes this a pretty good score – especially if you’re someone who is into playing car games as much as you are into cars themselves. So with that said, hop on over to Ubisoft’s website and grab your free game. If you like to play online and come across Black839, that’s me, so play nice or I’ll run you off the road :)

As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
