HI everyone,

it is very important that you should read this before you claim your free game. Most of us are just signing the terms without reading, but this one is very very important. You can see this provision in the screen you choose your free game.

"You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally RELEASE, WAIVE, AND FOREVER DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE Ubisoft Entertainment S.A., and each of its past, present and future divisions, parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors and assigns, together with all of their respective past, present and future employees, officers, shareholders, directors and agents, and those who give recommendations, directions, or instructions or engage in risk evaluation or loss control activities regarding the Campaign (all for the purposes herein referred to as “Released Parties”) FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY TO YOU, your assigns, heirs, and next of kin FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, CHARGES, LAWSUITS, DEBTS, DEFENSES, ACTIONS OR CAUSES OF ACTION, OBLIGATIONS, DAMAGES, LOSS OF SERVICE, COMPENSATION, PAIN AND SUFFERING, ATTORNEYS’ FEES, AND COST AND EXPENSES OF SUIT, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED OR UNSUSPECTED, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE PURCHASE, ACQUISITION, RENTAL, POSSESSION AND/OR USAGE, AND/OR THE INTENT TO PURCHASE, ACQUIRE, RENT, POSSESS AND/OR USE, THE ASSASSIN’S CREED UNITY VIDEO GAME AND/OR THE ASSASSIN’S CREED UNITY SEASON PASS ON ANY AND ALL PLATFORMS, AND/OR RELATED TO THE CAMPAIGN, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASED PARTIES OR OTHERWISE."

It says that when you accept the terms, u will have no right to do anything else against the unity mess.

And? What is your point? It is stated clearly and on visible place, THIS IS SETTLEMENT and it is perfectly normal and legal solution and nobody forces you to accept this offer. If you want to go to court go but good luck getting anything more valuable than this free game offer.

Pretty standard legal practice.

Basically buying out all the customers.

Other ToS' are a lot worse but you never read them.

This one just says you can't sue us, which you weren't going to do anyway.

Precisely.

And there has already been a thread about this ... and it's only about half way down the front page at this point: Free Game ToS looks harsh or just me? (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/977527-Free-Game-ToS-looks-harsh-or-just-me)

By downloading you accept the other game as replacement for the product that you felt was deficient. The matter is settled and you consider yourself made whole. That is what you are agreeing to.

It's very common practice for this type of compensation. Ubi made it front page is the difference, is all. Other companies make it in 9 point print right next to the signature line.

As I read that, I had this awful feeling that they were going to put a whole blanket over every product they ever make. That's not the case.

Of course they have a right to protect themselves in this way. It's an out of court settlement. By giving you a free game, they are compensating you for this one. You're recieving a 60 dollar product in exchange for releasing them from damages for paying for Unity. It's fair business.

Now if you find anything suggesting they are covering themselves for things unrelated to this particular game, Unity, that would be something to harp about.
