DID YOU KNOW: one of many first-ever posts on this right here web site was about Massive Entertainment’s alt-Cold War real-time technique recreation World in Conflict, and for years we even had a screenshot of considered one of its very spectacular explosions on our About/mission assertion web page. It was a recreation we favored a lot that we even ran pictures of TV’s well-known Kieron Gillen carrying a delightful promotional WiC hat. As such, it’s been a minor tragedy that WiC was removed from Steam some time again (although it’s on GOG).
Its wonderful tanks and incompetent captains usually are not solely misplaced to us, nonetheless – Ubisoft are giving it away free of charge till Monday.
World in Conflict was to some extent a non secular successor to Ground Control, although its the U.S.-invades-the-US-in-the-80s plot and a few intentionally dipshit characters additionally made it a bit of bit Command & Conquer. Like RPS, it’s ten years previous this yr. Hence, it is a little bit of an anniversary giveaway, though it kinds a double-whammy with Ubi giving freely bestest-best Asssassin’s Creed, Black Flag (aka AC4). Freebie downloads for the latter don’t go dwell till Dec 12-18 although – we’ll purpose to provide you a heads up about that nearer to the time.
In the meantime, do go snag a copy of WiC. It’s an especially tanky and explosive RTS that notably excelled in multiplayer, and it’s yours for no-pennies till 2AM PST/10A M UK on Monday, December 11.
