Ends Soon: Get Assassin's Creed for $5 on Steam

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 28 comments

Bargains, guys, BARGAINS.

Steam's midweek offer this week gives you the opportunity to purchase Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition for $5. The offer ends today so hurry!

This is your last chance to buy Assassin's Creed at 75 percent off (well, until the next big sale rolls around). If you don't take advantage of this offer, you're nuts. I mean, you're either nuts or your relationship with Assassin's Creed has run its course and you no longer wish to play the game. Then again, it is the Director's Cut Edition . . .

Hit up Steam to buy and remember, the deal ends this morning. Offer is available in North, Central, and South America only, so no bargains for us Europeans this time around.

    I heard the game was great but get repetitive after the first 2 chapters. Then again, it's probably worth 5$! Too bad I'm at work and can't log on to Steam.

    hmmm...i tried assassins creed on the xbox and didn't really like it. However for 5 bucks perhaps i will have to give it another go...

    Damn, I'm at work and just signed in on the site to download. Don't need to have steam installed, as long as you can access the website.

    Thanks for letting us know about the deal Tom's! :)

    You do need steam installed to reset your password though. Which... for some reason I can't remember for the life of me. *sigh*

    Damn, just heard about it this morning...at work. And the overly paranoid morons running IT have it blocked. FTL

    I've heard good things about the game (mostly from my xbox friends), and imo, it'd be worth $5 to give it a try. That's only 2-days worth of coffee at the local coffee shop.

    Just want to confirm what others said. It is a repetitive after a few cities. It is a neat game with a pretty neat concept and controls. Frustrating at times, but pretty neat overall. DEFINITELY worth $5 for sure.

    =( Just tried to do it. There is a spot on the main page that says $5, but when you go the page it shows up as $19.99. =(

    I got my copy a few days ago. For $5 there really is no risk. You can barely buy lunch for $5. I really enjoy the game, and its repetitiveness. Yesterday, I took on 13 soldiers at once and killed them all. Awesome game.

    Won't buy it, even for $5. The premise of the story is some noble muslim assassin goes around killing fat corrupt Christian lords or some idiocy like that. If the premise had been reversed, UBIsoft would have been firebombed by muslims. We Christians are easy targets cause we take everything in stride. So consider this my soft protest.

    So the deal ended. I wouldn't buy it anyway. I prefer to save the $5 for left 4 dead (1 or 2). Even the orange box is a better choice.

    Who ends a deal at Noon on a weekday? Would've been nice to know about ahead of time. If I was on the west coast, would they let me still buy it?

    I was able to take advantage of this deal. $5 is one hell of a deal for a game of this quality.

    I have it on the PS3. Great game, but re playability is low. The ending was kind of wtf? It was a fun concept for a game. I might just play it again.
