As Ubisoft promised last week, the PC version of Beyond Good & Evil has been made available for free via its Uplay service.
Ubisoft Club members can head on over to Uplay starting today to in order to add it to their library. From there, users can either horde it within their ever-expanding library of free games or download it to play whenever they want.
Beyond Good & Evil originally released in 2003 and received the HD treatment in March 2011 on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Its HD version has since been made backwards compatible with the Xbox One and was featured as a Games with Gold title between August 16th, 2016 through September 1st, 2016.
According to its listing on Uplay, there’s only mention of its original release date and not of its follow-up HD release. In fact, its recommended PC specs require a Pentium III, Celeron, or AMD Athlon processor and a GPU that supports at least DirectX 9 and has 32MB of memory. We wouldn’t be surprised if the version being offered by Ubisoft was the original 2003 release and not the 2011 HD version.
We’ve reached out to Ubisoft for clarification and will update our story when we get a response. For now, you should probably add Beyond Good & Evil regardless of what version is available for free. It’s still a fantastic game that is worth another playthrough.
