As the world fights back against the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we’re all spending extended periods of time indoors, and several videogames retailers are offering some great freebies to help fight cabin fever. A fair amount of games from various publishers and developers are on sale or are free for a limited time only to encourage people to stay home and be safe amid the pandemic. Child of Light will be available for free on Ubisoft's store but will be available for a limited time only. Ubisoft is offering Child of Light on Uplay, for free, from 1pm GMT March 24 until 1pm GMT March 28.

Child of Light is a platforming role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in April 2014, and was released on PlayStation Vita in July 2014. It has been directed by Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed 2's Patrick Plourde, where players will take the role of Princess Aurora who must bring back the sun, moon, and the stars to come home.

The fantasy RPG released back in 2014 to critical acclaim. Here's a short rundown of the game's setting and gameplay:
Set in the fantastical, watercolored world of Lemuria, Child of Light stars Aurora, a princess on a quest to save her kingdom with the help of a mystical companion named Igniculus. Throughout her journey, Aurora will recruit a colorful cast of allies to join her in the fight, confront enemies in turn-based combat, upgrade her team's skills and gear to take on bigger challenges, and solve puzzles to progress through the world.
