Ubi Soft recently posted an official press release on their website, detailing a new free trial offer for the company's growingly popular MMORPG Shadowbane. The offer will give non-subscribers Shadowbane 10 free days of play, while subscribers can win more free game time just for referring it to others. Here's an excerpt from the press release:

Ubi Soft Entertainment, one of the world's top game publishers, announced today a free trial offer to experience Shadowbane for 10 days.  Players who have yet to experience the intense online role-playing of Shadowbane can now spend 10 days exploring the massive landscape of this critically acclaimed massively-multiplayer online (MMO) game on either PC or Macintosh.

"We're thrilled to offer the Shadowbane free trial to gamers who have yet to experience the unique world of Shadowbane," said Jason Rubinstein, general manager of  "Shadowbane continues to offer a unique and immersive role-playing experience where they control all aspects of strategic city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development."

Players can visit to download the software for the free trial.  Existing subscribers can visit the official Shadowbane community site, The Chornicle of Strife, at, to find out more about how they can win free game time and more by referring their friends to the free trial program.

The free trial is valid for both the Mac and PC versions of the game. For more details about this free offer, including links to download the free client and sign up for a trial account, check out the items below.
