Watch Dogs is free for PC gamers until 13th Nov

Watch Dogs is free for PC gamers until 13th Nov

The E3 footage of the game looked substantially better than the finished product, which turned a lot of people away. In Polygon's review, we said that "as a hybrid open-world stealth-action game, it's in a class by itself". "Its shallow narrative and bland protagonist detract, but those looking for a finely-crafted open world game that eschews parody and satire for an overall darker tone will have a great time in Watch Dogs' digital Chicago".

While Watch Dogs wasn't the popular smash hit Ubisoft were hoping for it did have a sequel released that released to a much more positive critical reception. To get hold of it, you will need to have a registered Uplay account and we're assuming Ubisoft is using this promotion to encourage user sign-ups.

While Ubisoft's Uplay store may not be as chock full of offerings like the Steam store, there are times that it's a truly beneficial service - like when it gives away free games. Albeit it is rare for games this recent to go free, why miss the opportunity of Ubisoft's generosity, am I right? This means that you have an entire week to claim the game as your own. As soon as you confirm that, Watch Dogs is yours to keep. Take my word that the game is worth it... especially when free.

Once you launch Uplay, you will find the game sitting in your library waiting to be unlocked tomorrow at 11am EST. Yesterday they made a decision to give it a way for free for a limited time on PC.
