Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the latest instalment in Ubisoft’s stealth and stab franchise is out today, but before you shell out for it on your console of choice, take a gander at this bargain. OnLive, the fantastic game streaming service, is offering a free console if you buy the game through its network.
OnLive, which uses server side rendering to allow even the shonkiest netbook to play 3D games, is giving away a free OnLive console with every purchase of Assassin’s Creed Revelations (£34.99) in the UK before Friday. Considering it costs £69.99 on its own, that’s a stinking deal.
The downside of course is that you can’t sell the game itself on when you’re done, since it lives in the cloud, but for £34.99, you’re getting a tiny set top box that plugs into your router, and a wireless controller, which can then stream all sorts of games to your telly. We’ve got the lowdown on how the technology works right here in our OnLive feature.
As for Assassin’s Creed Revelations itself? Our verdict on the game will be up this afternoon so stay tuned. Here’s a trailer in the meantime, and the purchase link is below.
