As part of Ubisoft’s 35th anniversary celebrations, the publisher is giving away free games, and the latest has just been revealed. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory from 2005 is now available for free on PC through the Ubisoft Connect store.
This offer doesn’t last forever, as the offer is valid until November 25th. Specifically, you have until 9 a.m. local time on November 25 to claim the giveaway, so make sure you pick it up on Ubisoft Connect on time.
Originally released in 2005 for Xbox, PS2, GameCube, and PC, Chaos Theory puts you in the stealth boots of Sam Fisher who works for the Third Echelon to uncover the mysteries of government. At the time, we said in our review of Chaos Theory that it was “the most complete stealth action game to date”.
According to an October report, Ubisoft is developing a new Splinter Cell game, and it won’t be a spin-off. Ubisoft appears to be moving forward with the game in part to “win back” fans who haven’t embraced Splinter Cell’s mobile and VR spinoffs.
In 2020, Ubisoft announced the rebirth of the Splinter Cell series as a VR game for Oculus Quest 2, but that wasn’t what some fans might have wanted. A Netflix Splinter Cell anime is also in the works, and it’s being written by John Wick creator Derek Kolstad. A Splinter Cell live-action movie starring Tom Hardy is also on the way, but it appears to be in full development.
