That is PC (Epic Game Store, Ubisoft Store - pre-load from tomorrow), PS5 and PS4, as well as Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Boy we have a lot of gaming platforms at the minute. At any rate, the very respectable Watch Dogs: Legion is up for free play this coming weekend, March 26 - March 30.
Here's Ubisoft's free pitch:
Every character in near-future London will be available to recruit and play as during the Free Trial Weekend in both single-player and online modes. Players will be able to check out all of the open-world activities such as playing darts at the local pub and participating in bareknuckle fights, as well as explore half of the eight boroughs including the City of London and Islington & Hackney. Additionally, players will be able to discover the game’s storyline up to the Skye Larsen mission.Additionally, if the game's "recruit and play as anyone" hooks you, Ubisoft has a few sweet post-free weekend buy-in deals:
Players who want to continue their fight will keep their game progression and enjoy discounts on Watch Dogs: Legion and the season pass across select platforms:But enough from us and them, check out a trailer highlighting all of this embedded below.
Installed this on EGS to try it out because I want to explore London. I've just had 5 separate prompts to allow different Ubisoft software to modify my system. Still running updates and installer stuff.
This is the first Ubisoft game I've installed since 2005 when SafeDisc bluescreened my PC so I have low expectations.
edit: just got a 6th prompt for another service.
For anyone else wondering, I downloaded about 40GB last night and this morning via the EGS Launcher, then after going through the above to set up all the Ubisoft rubbish, it now wants to download another 15GB. So block off some time.
Thanks for trying it so I don't have to.
It runs like a dog on my old PC, I was going to install it on my shiny new laptop which outspecs this one in every way because the London stuff looks really cool and I love the idea of just driving around looking at the buildings, but I just can't be f***ed dealing with whatever that BattlEye s*** is
