The summer of huge virtual gaming events instead of E3 is still going. Now, Ubisoft Forward is next with a great event set to take place on July 12. Besides bringing world premiere launches for game titles like Watch Dogs: Legion, and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Ubisoft Forward, it will also offer fans a chance to get Watch Dogs 2 for free on PC.
Ubisoft’s 2016 open-world game will be available to users with an Uplay account for the whole day on July 12. So, try not to miss the game if you don’t have the copy yet. Here are all the details that you need to know.
Get Watch Dogs 2 On PC For Free
To grab a free copy of Watch Dogs 2, you’ll have to download Ubisoft’s Uplay launcher and create an account. According to the developers, you’ll need to log in on July 12 to receive the game, though Ubisoft didn’t announce when the offer will be available.
Ubisoft stated that you could have “a chance to earn additional in-game rewards,” so you might want to tune in to Ubisoft Forward beginning at 10:30 AM PT/ 1:30 ET.
Watch Dogs 2 got lots of positive reviews when released in 2016, trading the overly gloomy spirit of the 2014 original game for a lively open-world San Francisco. The game received massive praise for its vibrant setting and freedom of gameplay, and the protagonist, Marcus Holloway, became an instant favorite.
Watch Dogs 2’s system requirements begin at Windows 7 or higher, and Intel Core i5 2400s/AMD FX 6120 or more, 6GB RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 660/AMD Radeon HD 7870 or higher. Players will also need 50GB of space available.
