Far Cry 3 - free on Uplay

Offer available in China only, till September 8th.
https://register.ubisoft.com/far-cry-3/en-US

PandaVPN Free (Android) provides free chinese gateways.
All of the game’s language versions are available for download.

EDIT:
Same as the last time, you can claim it without a VPN, by using a mobile browser/mode - via the chinese Ubi storefront:
https://store.ubi.com/cn/game?pid=56c4947a88a7e300458b45de&dwvar_56c4947a88a7e300458b45de_Platform=pcdl&edition=标准版&source=detail

Make sure you’re browsing in the web browser’s mobile mode, i.e.:

  • on mobile browsers - check that the browser is in its native mobile mode (not desktop mode)
  • on desktop browsers - switch to mobile mode via dev tools >> ctrl+shift+i then ctrl+shift+m (same for both Chrome and FireFox)

Thanks, @pegasusz! Easy as pie. Another one I’ve only heard of before. Think my Bunny might enjoy playing this one (when she’s done her studying). Cheers. :heart:

Mobile method doesn’t seem to work for me, I’ll see if I can get the Panda thingy to work instead. Thanks for letting us know! :slight_smile:

EDIT

Nope, free version of PandaVPN does not include Chinese servers anymore. :frowning:

What results are you getting?
Did you check if you have the game in the Uplay launcher? You won’t find any* of Ubi freebies anywhere on any of their web portals (in your transactions/history/library etc.).
*almost

They’re under the VIP tab on the Servers List. You can use all of them for free, you just need to watch an add.

It just wouldn’t work. There are no Chinese servers in that VPN anymore and when I tried to switch, it told me to upgrade. As for the actual giveaway page, the command to go mobile would give a false confirmation order.

I went to reddit and they had steps there that ended up working. Had to use an agent switcher, and it immediately recognized! :slight_smile:

(P.S The Division is also free, just to let you know)

If User-Agent Switcher helped, it means you weren’t browsing in your browser’s mobile mode. The only thing this extension does is spoofing the user agent string in the HTTP header.

I mean, I was, I know I was. It even had the mobile UI and the mobile URL.

In that case it’s one of those mysteries of IT when something made a difference even though it had no right to;)

Thanks, @SeekerSupreme :heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation:

I am having such a bad day today, I think I will wait until tomorrow to attempt this. Right now, I could screw up a FREE Lunch.

I think ALL this crap is starting to get to me and when things go wrong it just intensifies everything.

Yea, I know those moments too. The only thing I could do was getting myself busy with something else more pleasant for a while :wink:

Thanks @SeekerSupreme :sparkles: :dizzy: :sparkles: - I was just going to post about Far Cry 3 (I just got it). Thanks for pointing out using the main sale page, I had to figure that out on my own. :nerd_face:

(ps - I own the original CD, but who knows if that would work these days).

Well, Ubisoft is confusing as always. Says it’s added, but there is no way to see a full list of my owned games on mobile.

PS. Thanks @SeekerSupreme It was easier when Ubisoft club was still a thing.

Weird - I had already claimed it last year but I still get the option to claim it while logged in on the website. I can see it in my library if I open UPlay but the client still shows me the offer and behaves like I don’t own it. Guess the only software their Devs know how to build are games! :roll_eyes:
