Ubisoft tweeted they will be giving out copies of Watch Dog 2’s predecessor for free, though it’s for PC only.
It will be available for preload November 7th, through November 13th, but with almost everything in life, there is a catch. If you haven’t already signed up for Ubisoft’s Uplay service, then get ready to, because that’s the only way to receive Watch Dogs.
Uplay services are not useless, but can net you some in-game unlockables like skins, soundtracks, and emblems. Of course this is only after completing achievements in Ubisoft games and racking up enough currency to buy whatever unlockable you’re after.
Watch Dogs is not a particularly old game, launching back in 2014. It is set in fictionalized version of Chicago and players are allowed to completely free roam the city. The story follows hacker Aiden Pearce, who is seeking revenge after the death of his niece.
