As part of its 30th anniversary, Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry publisher Ubisoft announced at last month’s E3 that it would be distributing a free “classic” title for Ubisoft Club members from June 2016 until the end of the year.
While last month’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time kicked off the ongoing promotion, this month’s title will be none other than developer Ubisoft Montreal’s Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, the first installment in the long-running stealth series.
Ubisoft says that its decision to choose Splinter Cell as the second title for Ubisoft Club is because it marked an important milestone in the publisher’s history, as “it was the first blockbuster title developed by Ubisoft Montreal, and Sam Fisher has grown to become one of the most recognisable characters Ubisoft ever created.”
Splinter Cell originally debuted on the Xbox in 2002, though it came to PC, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and the Game Boy Advance the following year.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell will be a free digital download on PC from Wednesday, July 13. Splinter Cell is available for 30 days before it will be switched out for next month’s free Ubisoft Club title.
Ubisoft unveiled Ubisoft Club in October 2015, with the rewards program proving players with additional bonuses and content for the publisher’s titles.
