Hi, This is the first time i have posted a deal/freebie on here so i hope i have done everything right.

Assassins creed III is free on the Chinese marketplace and if you make a new Chinese xbox account you can download it for free and then play it on your original UK account. The game is in english too.

I made the account on the computer on the chrome browser so everything got translated to english for me and it took about 10 mins.

the postcode i used was 100000 which is a Beijing postcode.

Here is the link to the page.

Unfortunately it has been found and fixed.

In regards to the failing, due to IP check more than likely, as we are not in China, a account migration seems to do the trick.

https://live.xbox.com/AccountMigration

That link allows you to migrate the dummy chinese account over to your country, just make sure it has AC3 on GoD, but both the UK and irish marketplaces do.

Users on NeoGaf and reddit starting to say its working, so worth a shot, and the earlier the better, as microsoft might not know about the migration trick yet.

A guide I wrote, might make it easier for people :)

I Recommend using Google Chrome and translating every page you go on to English.

Go here to the following page and translate it:

http://marketplace.xbox.com/zh-CN/Product/Assassins-Creed-III/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d802555308ae?noSplash=1

Scroll down to "Assassin's Creed 3" It will say Size: 7.63 GB and free to the right. Click the Download to Xbox 360 button.
Now you'll be taken to a new page, Click the green button which should be left of the centre of the middle of the screen.

You'll then be asked to sign up for a Microsoft Account.

Select China as Country and put 10999 as post code

On the following page select China again and click I accept

Click the green button, you will then need to verify your account. After this you will need to enter your billing details - enter anything you like, just make sure you use the same post code as previous, the phone number shouldn't matter but you can just enter something like 111111.
Now you'll be taking back to the Assassin's Creed 3 page, click the green button again.

Now turn on your Xbox, sign in to your newly made account and download the game, you should then be able to sign out and back into your original profile and play Assassin's Creed 3 completely free!

Can you add it to your download queue straight from that link on xbox.com or do you need to create an account on your xbox and search for it?

I made the account on the computer and added it to the download queue. I then downloaded the new chinese gamertag onto my xbox and it started downloading automatically.

Did you use a Chinese address for both new gamertag and new email address? first time i didn't use one for the new email address and it asked me to pay but when i changed it to a Chinese address it worked fine.

For both the email and gamertag i used the apple store in Beijing as an address and the postcode i used was 100000 as i couldnt find the exact one for the apple store.

On your PC log into your new chinese email.
Use the link in the opening post to take you to xbox.com where the game will be free.

You won't! People have been doing this stuff for ages and I've not heard of anyone getting banned! I've created a couple in the past to get some arcade games and nothing has happened.

I signed up with the address for MS in China, because that's how I roll. *puts on aviator shades*

Still stuck at 0 though.

Thanks for this.
