Ubisoft Is Giving Away Watch Dogs On PC

Watch Dogs may not be the best game ever made, but Ubisoft's giving it away for free, so that's something.

The promotion, as announced by Ubisoft through Twitter, runs from 0300 AEDT November 8 until 0300 AEDT November 14. (That's 0100 for AWST folk, 0200 in Queensland, 0230 for Adelaide/Darwin and 0500 for our New Zealand friends.)

It initially seemed like it would be a demo, or a timed full-version: the webpage URL includes "freetrial.ubisoft.com", although you can redeem the code through the uPlay client directly.

But whichever way you redeem your Watch Dogs key, Ubisoft confirmed that you'll get to keep it beyond the promotional period:

Which is nice. Everyone likes free stuff, right?


    Not a bad game I was the only one out of my mates who bought and finished it, this was on console. Best way to approach it is if it were a GTA DLC/Re-skin

    Requires Uplay. Not even worth my time. Got better things to do anyway.

    I quite enjoyed this game, it always made me laugh when he would go on a rant about all the criminal scum and then club someone to death for stealing a purse.

      I made the point of not robing the bank accounts of people who made less than 80K a year in the game and I still had more money than there were things to buy
