Last Chance To Get Watch Dogs 2 For Free On PC

Due to some technical difficulties during Ubisoft Forward, all of the rewards--including Watch Dogs 2--are available to snag for everyone.


Ubisoft had announced earlier this week that Watch Dogs 2 on PC would be free to anyone who logs into their Uplay account during the Ubisoft Forward stream. Unfortunately, some users reported difficulties while trying to log into their accounts. As a result, Ubisoft is simply giving everyone with a Uplay account a free copy of Watch Dogs 2 on PC as well as the other rewards that were up for grabs during the stream. All you need to do to claim the freebies is register on Ubisoft's site. If you already have a Uplay account, you just need to log in. But even if you don't have an account yet, you can sign up to grab the rewards, too. The freebies are only available to claim until the end of today (July 15), so make sure to grab them while you can.

If you're interested in Watch Dogs Legion but have never played any Watch Dogs games, Watch Dogs 2 offers a great introduction to the stealth action-adventure series. Playing the first game isn't necessary as Watch Dogs 2 stands on its own, although there are references and connections to the original. Before heading to post-Brexit London in Legion, you'll be able to explore the San Francisco Bay Area in Watch Dogs 2, a large open-world setting you can traverse on foot or by using vehicles like cars, buses, and motorcycles. You'll play as a young hacker named Marcus Holloway who has joined hacking group DedSec and is working to expose corruption and crimes committed by a technology company. The game also features both a co-op mode and competitive multiplayer modes such as Hacking Invasion, Bounty Hunter, and more.
