After a glitch, Ubisoft is giving everybody a PC copy of Watch Dogs 2 for free
Free games will forever be the best games.
Ubisoft recently held its “Forward” event, where the company showed off some of the various things (including Watch Dogs Legion and Far Cry 6) it has been working on. One thing that was teased during the event was that people that tuned in live and logged into their Ubisoft accounts would be able to snag a free copy of Watch Dogs 2.
Well, things didn’t go very smoothly. Many people reported issues with logging in, password problems, and more. Surely a bummer for those excited to check out the action-adventure game free of charge. Now, to make up for those issues, Ubisoft is giving the game to everybody, regardless if they watched the event or not.
We're aware of an issue causing some players to be unable to log in to their Ubisoft Account and are working towards resolving this. >> https://t.co/MpGUqsyg40
