Ubisoft is hosting a new giveaway on Uplay, as they’ve decided to gift Child of Light to all PC users who follow this link and login with their Uplay data/create a new account. This should help people pass the time if they live in a quarantine zone, so I’d like to extend my thanks to Ubisoft for doing it. The free promotion will last from March 24th at 10:00 am to March 28th at 10:00 am (your local time).
Aurora, a young girl from 1895 Austria, awakens on the lost fairytale continent of Lemuria. To return home she must fight against the dark creatures of the Queen of the Night, who have stolen the sun, the moon and the stars. At stake is not only Lemuria, but Aurora’s true destiny.
An Adventure Waits!
Created by a talented team at Ubisoft Montreal using the UbiArt Framework, Child of Light is an RPG inspired by fairy tales complemented with a story carefully crafted in verse and rhyme. Step into a living painting, the breathtaking scenery of Lemuria is an invitation to explore a long lost world.
Enter the World of Lemuria
Across your journey through Lemuria you will encounter many eccentric creatures, from spirits of the forest to talking mice to wicked witches and evil sea serpents. Discover a vast land with iconic locations and exciting dungeons that will evolve as Aurora regains the stolen lights.
Fight the Dark
Battle enemies using an Active-Time Battle System alongside the firefly Igniculus and other members of Aurora’s party on their quest to recover the sun, the moon and the stars. Beat your enemies using a deep party system and the varied skill trees of your party. Play with a friend as both Aurora and Igniculus using the seamless drop-in drop-out cooperative multiplayer.
If you’d prefer to own the game on Steam, you will have to pay for the privilege, as Ubisoft has not extended the free promotion to that platform as of today. There is a 66% off sale, however, which lasts until March 26th.
