Ubisoft is giving away Watch Dogs 2 on PC, free of charge, however this round there is a catch, you need to watch their live event July 12th.
Tune in to the dedicated Ubisoft Forward stream starting at 10:30 AM PDT with a packed pre-show and free rewards. The Ubisoft News team and friends will be playing Trackmania live on stream, followed by exclusive news, interviews, and a look at upcoming content, including intel about the AI teammates coming to Ghost Recon Breakpoint, news from Just Dance 2020, a deep dive into a much-loved Easter egg from The Division 2, and more. Don’t forget to log in with your Uplay account anytime after Trackmania and before the end of the main show to claim a free copy of Watch Dogs 2 on PC, and to get a chance to answer trivia questions and win some rewards for a variety of Ubisoft titles.
So again: to get your copy make sure you are logged in with your Uplay account at the official Ubisoft Forward page (the page will go live before the event starts July 12th). Check the image below for exact times in your region.
Ubisoft's servers crashed during the Ubisoft Forward stream, and almost no user was able to take advantage of it to redeem the free copy of Watch Dogs 2 they gave away for watching the event . Luckily, not everything is lost: Ubisoft will give you the game in the same way even if you could not log in.
We hope you enjoyed Ubisoft Forward! We regret that we were unable to meet our rewards drops in real time during the show. Rest assured that we will reward everyone with a Ubisoft account for the products we plan to distribute during Forward as soon as we can. Please come back here for more details. ”
We encourage you to keep an eye on the Ubisoft Forward page and the company's social media for news on how to redeem Watch Dogs 2 for UPlay.
