Get Your RPG On with Ubisoft’s Child of Light for Free

We’re going back to 2014 when we first meet the 2D RPG know as Child of Light from Ubisoft. The game is set in a world of fantasy, where everything is trying to kill you. It is not as tricky as more modern RPGs, where dodging attacks can be a pain most of the time. If your expectations are too high, don’t bother downloading the game, but if you’re looking for a good, free time, then this game is for you.

Patrick Plourde directed the game, and he also left his mark on the Assasin’s Creed 2 and the immortal Far Cry 3, so you can expect the best. He hasn’t failed to entertain us so far. The game will be available for free until April 11th, so you have plenty of time to decide if it’s worth playing it, but for a free game, you can give it a try, you might enjoy the 2D world, that sometimes may prove more difficult than nowadays games. You can download Child of Light directly from Ubisoft and as long as you get it during the free period, it’s yours to keep forever.
