Ubisoft will give Assassin’s Creed Unity refunds (via Reddit) to players who bought it shortly before it went free. The company will reach out to those who purchased between April 15 and 17 to arrange compensation.
Naturally, there are some terms. You must have purchased after 2:00 PM EST on the 15th, but before the game went free yesterday. The offer is also exclusive to the Ubisoft store, so any that took advantage of sales on Steam, Green Man Gaming or elsewhere will be out of luck.
As the original offering was PC exclusive, Ubisoft is limiting the refunds to the platform, too. Admittedly, the number of gamers who bought the three-year-old game will be pretty small, but it’s a nice touch.
It’s worth reiterating that you don’t have to get in contact with any support teams. If you’re eligible, you’ll get an email with all the details. Currently, the company hasn’t confirmed if it will be in the form of cash or store credit.
Of course, the April 15 cut off marks the day France’s Notre-Dame cathedral caught fire, collapsing its spire and damaging its roof. One of its famous rose windows was also lost, though many important artifacts were saved, alongside much of the interior was saved.
