Watch Ubisoft Forward this week and get Watch Dogs 2 for free

Get it on Uplay

PC gamers have double the reason to look forward to this weekend’s Ubisoft game showcase Ubisoft Forward. Not only are we expecting to see plenty of new game details, gameplay footage, and possibly game reveals, but Ubisoft is going to give away Watch Dogs 2 for PC to viewers during the stream. Check out the sizzle real for the event here!

Ubisoft Forward is taking place soon, this Sunday to be precise. And while the many competing digital events might have shown plenty of games already, Ubisoft has been especially coy about their future line-up. In fact, all they have shared was a cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

And while it is awesome to finally see the series return after a one-year hiatus, we alongside all gamers are yearning for actual gameplay. Something that is most definitely going to be shown in the Ubisoft Direct. If you don’t want to wait five days, a chunky piece of footage leaked just yesterday. Good luck finding a working upload though.

Tune in to the dedicated Ubisoft Forward stream starting at 10:30 AM PDT with a packed pre-show and free rewards.
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.

Another high-profile Ubisoft game that is confirmed to make an appearance is Watch Dogs Legion. The highly ambitious third entry into Ubisoft’s open-world hacking-action game with a twist. There is not one protagonist in it, there are thousands. Yes, you can play as literally every character in the dystopian future London setting.

And to awaken interest in the series, Ubisoft has announced that during Ubisoft Forward, PC users will be able to claim the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 via Uplay. A very welcome promotion and even more reason to watch the event.
