Beyond Good & Evil will be free on PC from 12 October

As if to add a little more fuel to the Beyond Good & Evil 2 info-fires, Ubisoft has announced that the original game will be the next to be given away free on PC. It’ll be part of Ubisoft’s 30th anniversary celebration give-away series according to this tweet from the company.

The current freebie through the Club 30 promotion is The Crew. It’ll switch over to Beyond Good & Evil on 12 October, and that will remain the free game until the following month. All of these games are redeemed on Ubisoft’s Uplay platform, so you need an account to partake.

As mentioned, this announcement comes on the back of several pretty clear indications that the long-awaited followup to Jade’s adventures is in the works. Rumours persist that Beyond Good & Evil 2 will be associated with the upcoming Nintendo NX system in some way (either as an exclusive or launch title), but hopefully the game, if it finally appears, will come to PC as well.

    Are you Friggin’ Kidding me Ubisoft!!

    Bought The Crew early last month, The Crew went free. And I bought BG&E just Yesterday on GOG! Oh my luck… And icing on the cake, I wished for it to be one of the free giveaways on The Crew’s article right here on PC Invasion… Ah well, that makes two of those days… But now everyone gets to play this lost gem and wait for maybe 10 more years for BG&E 2… Good times…

        Yeah well… Third time’s a charm. Any guesses for the next one? 🙂 My money’s on Rainbow Six Vegas or a Trials title

            Haha! 😀
            But I do intend to buy the Ezio Collection for PS4. Doubt they will give away 3 free games :p Come to think of it, one of giveaway titles is bound to be an AC title…. Hmmm…

      Think of it as paying a premium for not having to use the utterly shit uplay app to play the game? That’s one good thing at least.
