Ubisoft decided to release free versions of Far Cry, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Rayman Raving Rabbids.
Out of these three games, Far Cry is the most well known one. The game appeared from nowhere - actually, from German studio ran by Turkish brothers- and single-handedly wiped out launch effects of Doom 3 and Half-Life 2. This is the game that surprised the market, and with later appearance of 64-bit enhancements and graphical tweaks, this game still looks rather actual. This was also the very first title to offer HDR (High Dynamic Range) - in a form of manual controls.
We have spotted free games for download on File Planet, but we’re quite sure you’ll see them on other download sites. During the writing of this story, more than 1500 users downloaded the game (it grew from 10084 to 11659), and we’re sure once the news gets across, there will be thousands of people in line to download this brilliant game. As far as other two games go, we would recommend both if you’re in for some sheer summer gaming fun.
As always, there is a catch: these three titles are ad-supported, but we were not able to see the ads in-game while using this downloaded client. We’re downloading Prince of Persia and Rayman right now.
We're not sure if this ad-spotting version of the game is compatible with those nice 64-bit upgrades AMD offered quite some time ago. Regardless of that, this experiment will show Ubisoft there is a point in releasing older titles for free or not.
