The stealth hit will replace current PC freebie Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, and will be available for 30 days. Once you've downloaded it, it's yours to keep.

The giveaway comes as part of Ubisoft's 30th Anniversary celebrations, with new free games set to be given away each month throughout the year.

Splinter Cell originally released on PC and Xbox in 2002, and went on to spawn half a dozen sequels. The latest game, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, launched in 2013.
