Enjoy A Free Copy Of 'Child Of Light' For Your Windows PC

Ubisoft’s gorgeous platformer, Child of Light, was a pretty big hit back in 2014. We’ve all aged a bit since then, but the game hasn’t—and now, you can get a free copy from Ubisoft for just a couple of mouse clicks. Who doesn’t like free games?

There’s a catch, but it’s a small one. If you’re reading this after March 28, 2020, you’re out of luck. The free copy has eluded you, because you missed Ubisoft’s four-day window for the free copy. However, there’s a silver lining. Instead of having to fire up its somewhat-bloated UPlay app to negotiate the purchase, you can simply log into your UPlay account—or create one, if you don’t have one—and use this link to score your free game.

I should also note that you’re only getting the core Child of Light game for free. The game’s DLC packs, seven in all, are still going to cost some cash if you want to expand your gaming session. While there is a cooperative element if two people are sitting in front of the same PC, Child of Light is primarily a single-player experience. That’s not a criticism, but it’s worth knowing about before you invite a few friends over to check out your new game. It is a gorgeous game, thanks to all of those hand-drawn backgrounds and watercolor-like effects.

Even though you probably have a fairly big gaming queue to get through as a result of the coronavirus and/or your new working-from-home lifestyle, Child of Light is worth placing toward the top of your list. It’s a lovely, simple release from the stress of the everyday world.
