[PC] Free - Valiant Hearts - The Great War @ Ubistore

3310

Edit - this is only available through Ubisoft China unfortunately. The good news is that it can be claimed quite easily.
1) On your phone (not desktop), claim the game in the OP link. No VPN required.
2) Open up uplay and you'll be able to see it in your games.

I was able to claim it successfully.


Free until August 4th.

This is the story of crossed destinies and a broken love in a world torn apart.

Ubisoft games have usually become free from 11pm AEST in past deals. I think the deal has been updated as free early as the US store is still US$4.50. I've marked the deal to start from 11pm tonight.

    Great game.

    I keep getting Oops, error.

    Edit: Switch to Desktop mode to bypass the error.

    • +7 votes

      What error were you getting? I 'purchase' it in the browser, it asks me if I want to download or launch UPlay and I click Launch as I already have it - uPlay then asks me for an activation code… was that the same error you had?

      How do you switch to desktop mode in the launcher?

      • +2 votes

        In the Web browser, not the launcher.

      How do I switch to Desktop mode?

        Press and hold the power symbol

      Have you actually checked your library to see if it is there?

    GREAT game. Light puzzle mechanics and beautiful art style with a heart wrenching story. So good for free.

    • -2 votes

      very light puzzles unfortunately.
      Many times I had an idea of the solution right after entering a new area. It was just a matter of walking slowly and executing each requirement for the solution.

    I successfully claimed it but it's not showing up in the Uplay launcher. Anyone else?

      Same - I'm getting asked for an activation code when after I 'purchase' it

      Same here too

    •  

      Error for me too. Well, at least I didn't need to wake up at 4am this time (Watch Dogs 2 deal).

    •  

      It's available from 11pm.

      I think the post was updated after some of these comments were posted.

    When I click "Get it for free" from the web site it says "Game is activated in your Uplay Account". Then when I click to launch Uplay it is asking for a activation code.

    Game isn't showing up in Uplay under free games or in my library.

    Great game otherwise. Originally played this as an XBLA title on the 360.

    •  

      Same issue. So frustrating, as their website and launcher are both broken.

    •  

      Same issue

    •  

      cant even find it on uplay store to see if its claimable there

      •  

        You can add the game to your wishlist in browser then go to your wishlist in the Uplay launcher.

        It shows Free there (similarly to the browser) but it still asks for activation code.

    •  

      Same

  •  

    Seriously great game

  •  

    Great game played a few years ago, touching story with great soundtrack. Felt quite sad with the ending so don't want to play it again.

  • +2 votes

    same error as a lot of others.
    asking for activation code. and search function in uplay brings up 404

  •  

    Worked for me. Quick and easy

    • +1 vote

      Doesn't work.. asks for activation code in the Uplay library else the game doesn't show up even though the website says activated in your library on Uplay.

    •  

      Have you actually checked your library for the game?

    •  

      yeah worked for me, quick and easy. Showed up in Uplay library.

      https://imgur.com/hubDRdb

  •  

    not working for me either! so frustrating, can anyone be a little bit more clear how to switch to "Desktop mode" please? or is it just luck!? I even tried with different browsers and no luck!

  •  

    When you try and get it in the launcher store.

    ERROR Your shopping cart cannot currently be ordered since one or more of the products in your cart has an invalid price or is not available in the requested quantity.

  •  

    Tried twice and it doesn't work. I might try getting it on my phone.

  •  

    One of the best endings in a game

  •  

    Really fantastic game!

  • +2 votes

    So with the activation error that I (and many others have been getting) on my desktop browser, I tried the desktop mode on mobile method and although it says 'Your game is activated on your Uplay library'. When I look at my library it's not there, so I think it's still bugged.

    Typical Ubisoft.

    Can anyone who says they've got the game successfully actually confirm it's in their Uplay library?

    Edit: Just saw the timing revision in the post. Perhaps we are all just too early if the game isn't 'free' till 11pm, even though the website says its free now

    • +1 vote

      Yeah .. might be a clock thing, Website uses local time (users browser time) to show its free - but server that grants it is on US time and denys it?

      •  

        Yep. That has to be it. Will try again tomorrow and have a feeling it will go through ahead.

  •  

    Ubisoft is known that the games you checked out disappears or never appear in your app or library when you 100% checked out. Child of Light happened to me

  •  

    Great game. 10/10 experience

  •  

    deleted (already posted)

  •  

    so this game works as standalone without downloading launcher ?

  •  

    its coming up as A$5.98 for me, even though i added it for free earlier. Looks like it didnt go through.

    •  

      Same, but OP suggested waiting until 11pm tonight.

      Let's come back then and compare notes.

  •  

    Played this game on my iPad a few years back. Amazing story telling and excellent soundtrack. Would highly recommend.

  •  

    It's $5.98 now? oh, just wait the title just has changed into 'LATER TODAY' from 'TODAY'

    Apparently it's only for China according to a unverified reddit comment

    Well that was a waste of time

  • +2 votes

    I did it!
    On my phone or from desktop, doesn't matter.
    Make sure you close the "switch store" modal.
    Then click the blue button, login, then redeem!

    •  

      It worked! Thank you very much.

      Confirmed that you must click the second button, otherwise it will redirect you to whatever store deemed appropriate given your IP.

    Success with Chinese store.

  •  

    Nope, no luck here. Even going through the China link, says it's been added to the library, asks to open up Uplay.. and asks for the activation code again.

    •  

      I got something like that at first. Then I logged in to the regular store and tried the China store again (worked).

      •  

        Still didn't work that way for me. Ended up doing it via mobile as others suggested, and loaded up Uplay afterwards. Got it now and can finally put out the positive vote!

  • +5 votes

    I eventually got it after a bit of messing around. Going back and forth logging into the Chinese Uplay store on my phone then going back and claiming it a few times and it suddenly worked.

    Shows up in my Uplay account now.

    •  

      Second this. also close my uplay desktop app and reopen it again.

    •  

      Thank Freezies. I was going to give up but persisted when I saw your comment. I kept on logging into the China site, claiming the game, opening Uplay then closing Uplay and restarting the process until it showed up.

  • +2 votes

    Worked for me. Easy, just use phone and claim it. Showed up in Uplay library as well.

      Thanks!!!
      Doesn't work from PC, worked when trying from phone, you need to login UPlay website and back to the CLAIM page again in order to claim it… XD

  • +2 votes

    I was able to claim it (using china link) but only using mobile, not desktop

    When I clicked link from desktop it prompted me to open uplay. When I opened it, it asked me for activation key.

    In comparison on mobile, it doesn't give you the option of opening uplay so it might automatically add the game to your account.

    •  

      When I opened it, it asked me for activation key.

      It never ask me of activation key, it just ask me login to my Uplay account and I check on my desktop Uplay it shows in the account.

    Another confirmation that it worked via mobile. Just clicked on mobile, it pops up with a "It's in your game library" message then it is now in Uplay (desktop).

    Managed to get it via China store on phone using this link that was posted on reddit.

    https://store.ubi.com/cn/game?pid=56c4948d88a7e300458b4890&d...

    Logged in and said all good game is in library. Checked and it's in my uplay library. Not tried installing though.

    •  

      Good work.

      •  

        Also installed now and tested working. Seems like a nice little game.

    •  

      worked for me. just gotta work out where to click on the chinese website :)

    •  

      Thanks, it worked.

  • +2 votes

    Wow. After lots of trying (using mobile) and retracing steps and eventually got this message:

    ALL GOOD. Your game is activated on your Uplay library

    Finally! Ubisoft wants us to make sure we work for it just to get a freebie.

  • +1 vote

    It worked for me. As other people mentioned, you claim the game through the Chinese mobile website then restart Uplay on your desktop.

    phone is fine

    Got it too. thanks

    Nope. FUbisoft.

  •  

    I've given up on ubisoft. I only have 1 game remaining on account, and I suspect that will vanish too. Do they remove games if you don't play them within a certain time?

    •  

      Not sure what you’re doing wrong but they don’t just take your games away…

  •  

    confirm this worked after doing it a second time.
    first time i did it it said it worked but didn't load to my uplay library. waited a few hours and checked again still not there. tried the second time and it showed up immediately.

    Thanks OP, worked through mobile like you said :)

  • +1 vote

    It works via Mobile. As I don't speak Chinese it was a bit difficult but managed to fumble my way through and got it activated.

  •  

    how do you get the game? i'm trying to get it for my nephew and it says it's 'all good, game's in your library' but nothing is there. mobile site doesn't work either?

  •  

    'WALT, eh WALT'

    here's how i got it, copy link to whatsapp, launch on mobile, log in with regular aus account, refresh again the link if log in hangs, then click on the chinese wordy thingy which is a blue button and you will get a message game added to library.

    back on pc, proceed to click the same link, then blue button, then select launch uplay, and it starts to install right away. done! woo hoo~

    •  

      Yep this worked for me, thanks

    •  

      Great, thanks. Worked

  • +3 votes

    Works a treat. Thanks OP!

    Used Chrome on my Android phone:

    • Logged into the Australian Ubi store here: https://store.ubi.com/anz
    • Clicked deal link
    • Click on big blue button, and the screen popped up with "All good!" and "Game activated in your library" or something along the lines
    • If a different screen pops up with an entry box prefilled with "+61" it's asking you to set up a phone number, scroll down and hit the white button which is "skip"
    •  

      Cheers. Great success.
      The only additional thing was I clicked a big X after arriving at the Chinese Ubi store, must be a redirection prompt to to AU store.

    •  

      This worked for me on Firefox on Android. The only difference is that it asked me to log in again the chinese ubi store even after I had logged into the Australian store.

    •  

      thanks for the steps, worked on Android + Chrome

    Great game, absolute shit on my ipad as all the audio is extremely distorted and static. No its not my ipad or headphones, its a known bug that many people have noted in the app store reviews. Really sours a great game that has been left for so long with such an obvious and huge flaw.
