Shack PSA: Assassin's Creed PC $10 on Steam

By Chris Faylor, Mar 23, 2009 9:52am PDT No longer content with mere weekend sales, Valve has announced that this week will see its digital storefront Steam discount one Ubisoft-published PC title daily.

The promotion kicks off with a 50% discount on Ubisoft Montreal's open-world murder simulator Assassin's Creed, which brings the game's price down to $9.99. That price is only valid for today, Monday, March 23.

Other titles published by Ubisoft, but not guaranteed to be part of the sale, include Far Cry 2, Tom Clancy's HAWX, World in Conflict, Grey's Anatomy: The Video Game, Tom Clancy's EndWar, Prince of Persia, and Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway.

  • strong yen rocks. 1000yen for this game? fucking bargain! I couldn't even buy a cd here for that price.

    I'm really glad Steam has these deals as a lot of really awesome games are becoming available for the price I would normally pick them up at retail a few months after release or less meaning I don't mind buying games I would normally just skip. I'm really hoping Far Cry 2 and PoP are going to be available for half price this week too. They won't be $10, but $15 and $25 seem pretty good deals too.

    Actually, I have a French colleague who hates Ubi soft and told me to buy 5 clocks instead of assassin's creed. Then he offered me money to pirate it instead of buying it. Some people are weird.

    In other news, nintendo are selling clocks with mario and animal crossing characters on the dsi for 200yen. not bargain :)

  • Even though this game gets chided for its repetition and design decisions (and sometimes rightly so), it still remains one of the most immersive gaming experiences I've had in 20+ years of gaming.

    Yes, the ai was a little too eager to go after you, and yes some of the minigames and "obstacles" were a bit annoying, and yes the backtracking got tiresome. But many times, just walking in the crowd, or ducking around a corner and then vaulting up to a rooftop above to evade your pursuers, you get a real sense of presence in the world (especially playing with the HUD off). Assassin's Creed was one of the first games I played on the new systems that really made me feel like, "yeah, now THIS is what this new era of gaming is capable of".

    And to me, that's easily worth $10.
