As part of Ubisoft’s 35th anniversary celebrations, the publisher is giving away free games, and the latest one has now been revealed. 2005’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is now available for free on PC through the Ubisoft Connect store.
This deal doesn’t last forever, as the offer is good through November 25. Specifically, you have until 9 AM local time on November 25 to claim the freebie, so be sure to grab it from Ubisoft Connect in time.
Originally released in 2005 for Xbox, PS2, GameCube, and PC, Chaos Theory puts you into the stealthy boots of Sam Fisher who is working for the Third Echelon to uncover government mysteries. At the time, we said in our Chaos Theory review that it was the most “fully featured stealth action game to date.”
According to a report from October, Ubisoft is developing a new Splinter Cell game, and it won’t be a spin-off. Ubisoft is seemingly moving ahead with the game in part as a means of “winning back” fans who didn’t embrace Splinter Cell’s mobile and VR spin-offs.
In 2020, Ubisoft announced the revival of the Splinter Cell series as a VR game for Oculus Quest 2, but that was not what some core fans might have wanted. A Splinter Cell anime from Netflix is also in the works, and it’s written by John Wick creator Derek Kolstad. A live-action Splinter Cell movie starring Tom Hardy is also on the way, but it appears to be in development hell.
