Ubisoft is giving away the PC version of Far Cry 3 for free. You can get your free copy of the game by going to Ubisoft website here and logging into your Ubisoft Connect account and choosing the "Ubisoft Connect PC" logo towards the bottom of the page. 

Far Cry 3 will remain free until Saturday, September 11 at 2:30 am ET. Once you have redeemed the game it will remain in your Ubisoft Connect library, even once the deadline has passed. 

"Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter set on an island unlike any other," reads the description to the game on the Ubisoft website page for the free download. "A place where heavily armed warlords traffic in slaves. Where outsiders are hunted for ransom. And as you embark on a desperate quest to rescue your friends, you realise that the only way to escape this darkness ... is to embrace it."

The next entry in the Far Cry series, Far Cry 6, will launch for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 7, 2021.

This doesn’t appear to work. On attempting to download it, the Ubisoft Connect app ask for an activation key, which the Ubisoft store does not provide you with.
Looking through the internet for a solution and this seems to be a common issue with the Ubisoft store. Ironic as part of their advert for the store is avoiding this very issue.

Edit: It does work through the link above, but not if you try to do it through the Ubisoft store.

It also doesn't like to play nice at all with modern hardware as well as Windows 10 (Tried to play it earlier this year and it wasn't having any of it).

Since they haven't attempted to fix it nor make it play nice with modern hw, there's no real point in this offer at all.

It's Ubisoft... Not known to behave or play well with PC's in general.

Exactly, which is why I see this ancient feebie as a dud.
