Christmas comes early for some Assassin’s Creed Unity players, as Ubisoft will start handing out free games next week for owners of the game’s DLC pass, the publisher has announced.

Anyone who purchased Unity’s DLC pass or Gold Edition are eligible for the free game as part of Ubisoft’s apology over the game’s bugs and other technical issues.

As you’d expect, Unity’s DLC pass and Gold Edition have been removed from sale, meaning you can’t now buy the content as a means to score a free game. If you were one of the early adopters for Unity’s DLC pass or Gold Edition, however, you can choose from the following games to receive for free.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
The Crew
Far Cry 4
Just Dance 2015
Rayman Legends
Watch Dogs

Ubisoft cautions that the list of available titles may vary by country, though the publisher did not provide any further details. It also explains that your free game must be on the same platform you bought Unity for.

As for how you can go about claiming your free game, Ubisoft will launch a special website next week that users can access with their Uplay, PSN, or Xbox Live accounts. A step-by-step guide on how to claim your freebie is coming next week. We’ll post that information as soon as it’s available.

If you didn’t buy the Unity DLC pass or Gold Edition, you’re still getting free content in the form of the Dead Kings expansion, which will be given to all players. A release date has not been set.

Unity was released in November, suffering through some technical troubles out of the gate. Ubisoft has released a number of patches so far, the most recent of which–Patch 4–will arrive on Monday, December 15. This latest patch is a big one, and should clear up most of the game’s remaining issues.
