Weekend PC Download Deals for Apr. 19: Free Assassin's Creed Unity

This weekend's PC deals are headlined by Ubisoft spotlighting the events in Paris this week, as they offer Assassin's Creed Unity for free.

The Easter holiday means that many are getting out for spring break. That means it's a good time for big-time spring sales and a handful of PC gaming retailers are getting into the action, trying to beat Steam to its usual spring sale where they take everyone's lunch money. Those looking for solid discounts on dozens of games can turn to Green Man Gaming, GamersGate, and Fanatical, where they have top games with steep price drops right now.

But the biggest news of the week involved the devastating fire that took down the historical Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. As donors rally to help save the religious landmark, Ubisoft is doing its part by not only ponying up some of its own money, but also by offering Assassin's Creed Unity absolutely free of charge. Give it a look today. I swear it's not as bad as some people made it out to be!

Also, Overwatch has kicked off its big Overwatch Archives: Storm Rising event. On top of getting a special co-op brawl, the game has dozens of new skins and is also on the verge of getting a brand new escort map. That means now is a good time to jump into the game and, fortunately, Blizzard has the game on sale right now. There's also a free trial going down right now, so try it out if you need some convincing first.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
