PC gamers should claim Watch Dogs for free before time runs out. Yes, you can keep it forever if you claim it before the time expires.
Are you sure? First, i was like, "Watchdogs, AWESOME!" - then I saw ubisoft, and i was like, "meh...".
Hey, free is free! Good on Ubisoft for this freebie :)
Did you actually forget that Ubisoft made Watch Dogs? I seriously doubt that.
LOL People letting their grudges get to them over something that is FREE, like that's not a good thing. A game that isn't amazing, but it isn't bad either. I don't like Ubisoft, but free is free and having played the game a few months back and finishing it, there's still fun to be had. I say pick it up if you don't mind the generic story & characters for good fun gameplay. I wouldn't pay $60 for it and I didn't plus Ubisoft is Ubisoft, (aware of the DRM bull going on) but give it a try. ;)
um..ok. Play games based on games, not publishers bud. Watchdogs was an ok game, if you don't play it based on Ubisoft being the publisher, I'd question why you even game at all.
Hell yeah but this for free to make AAA companies mad and then spit in their sippies later.
Basically I'm going to pissed off Ubisoft for MTs in there games.
Why do always sound like really badly dubbed Anime dialogue... Sippies?
Uplay. No thanks.
Uplay? Ukeep. Bye.
I'd rather get punched in the face
I actually used my Watch Dogs disc as a Frisbee, and that's the most fun I had with the game. So no, not really dramatizing it at all.
Awesome! Got mine
A lot of people hated on this due to the infamous Ubisoft downgrade and various bugs and glitches but I preferred Watch Dogs' dark and gritty vigilante vibe to Watch Dogs 2 upbeat colorful themes, even though Aiden Pierce has the personality of a rock.
I enjoyed the game a lot myself. Felt the hate was unwarranted
I agree. I felt the hate was just way exaggerated, Witcher 3 had a downgrade and many of those SAME USERS on this site where silent about it. I don't care what it "was", I care about what i'm playing day 1, sure its not 100% EXACTLY looking like what was shown, but I play games to play them, not simply look at them. ZERO downgrade is going to stop me from buying a game I want to play, this game would have to damn near look like a N64 game for me to really go as far as to not buy it.
Well, the downgrade was pretty shady, but having it played years later when that cooled down, it's honestly a good game. I enjoyed the vigilante fighting crime and the corrupt city aspect of it. Aiden Pierce not having much character growth and lack of background was a hindrance to the overall story. I never felt like I cared about his struggle, more flashbacks to how he was before the "attack" would of helped. It just made me feel like he was as shallow before, I mean, look at Bruce Wayne before and after Jason Todd's death, in some iterations, he became more brutal and have less sympathy on criminals after that. Gameplay was fun, it made you think, it gave you unique tools that separated it extremely from something similar in mechanics like recent Splinter Cell. Car chases, timing the traps like barricades, I had the most fun with that because it gave me a rush of adrenaline that even I don't get in GTA due to the wide arsenal of options you unlock and have. I recommend the game and more now that it's currently free. Give it a try, you might actually like it for the reasons stated above.
I've always wanted to try the game and have put it in my Steam wishlist but it has never been at the price that I'm willing to cough out. so...yeah...this is awesome. Free is free
All the graphical controversy aside, this was actually a pretty fun game. Feel like it got shit on way too hard. Except the driving...that's still a little spotty.
lol, I know right. The driving is so bad, but the rest of the game is of great quality. I've yet to buy the second Watchdogs, but i've heard great things from those who bought it day 1.
Watch Dogs 2 was great. Better characters and story than the first. Highly recommend
@Razzer- nice, thats all I've been hearing from a few of my friends that got it on PSN.
This game is criminally underrated
Absolutely LOVE the turnaround for Ubisoft, at least for ME. I adored Watch Dogs 2 in a way the first one never could achieve. Assassin's Creed Origins is an amazing RPG (yes, it is an action-adventure-RPG now). Mario+Rabbids is seriously as good as XCOM 2. South Park killed it. And Far Cry 5 looks amazing. And a free Watch Dogs 1? Yep, they've really redeemed themselves.
You need to get Wildands, its pure fun. The Division is awesome too, 10$
I agree. I don't really own much of their games this gen, only Rainbow Six and Watchdogs 1, but I've noticed the change and think they've done a pretty good job this gen. Free DLC like with Rainbow Six, new IP and big turn around like Assassins Creed Origins and Watch Dogs 2.
I feel like Rainbow Six is the best shooter this generation. Nothing can match it's tense moments. I just wish they added more Situations. Btw I read the book in H.S
Ubisoft kicking ass this generation
Yeah, they have done really well. I’ve been impressed
Very underrated game. Not without its very obvious flaws, but still an all around decent and memorable experience for me. The map has some great ambience.
Not a fan of Uplay, but I like free stuff even more. Well played Ubisoft, you got me to download your dumb loader.
Those people who clearly just don’t like Ubisoft I challenge you to never buy a game or even accept a opportunity to play any of their games in the future. So get over your grudges and accept that you like there games
