Assassin’s Creed Unity Free Game Stops You From Suing Ubisoft at All

By   /   Dec 24, 2014

All the season pass holders of Assassin’s Creed Unity are in for a treat with the free game that Ubisoft is giving away. The offer is live now, and many of you might have availed it already.

However, did you think that there could be more to it than what meets the eye? What I am trying to tell you is, have you ever read the terms and conditions of usage for any of the products you use?

Well, if you haven’t, the ones that come with this free game is something you should really spend a couple of minutes reading. It will be entertaining to say the least.

Actually, when you accept the game you automatically accept the terms and conditions that stop you from suing Ubisoft for any and everything related to the bumpy launch of Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Here’s how it goes:

You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally RELEASE, WAIVE, AND FOREVER DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE Ubisoft Entertainment S.A [etc.] from any and all liability to you [etc.] for any and all claims, demands, charges, lawsuits, [etc.] and expenses of suit, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, arising out of or related to the purchase, acquisition, rental, [etc. of], the assassin’s creed unity video game and/or the assassin’s creed unity season pass on any and all platforms, and/or related to the campaign, whether caused by the negligence of the released parties or otherwise.

Now, we do understand that the free game is being given away to compensate for the bad launch, but does that automatically mean that no one should be able to ask for any more compensation for their troubles?

What do you think?
