Watch Dogs 2 was free during the Ubi Forward livestream. However, server problems caused frustration among the fans. Ubisoft has now responded and set up a website where you can still get Watch Dogs 2 free after the stream.
The rush of fans who Get Watch Dogs 2 for free wanted to bring the Ubisoft server to its knees during the Ubi Forward livestream. If you wanted to secure the open world game for free via Twitch or Uplay, you only saw a loading screen with bad luck on Sunday, July 12th, 2020.
Get Watch Dogs 2 for free: how it works

In order to receive Watch Dogs 2 free of charge, you simply have to register with your Ubisoft account on the associated website log in. Don't be surprised if it takes a moment for the login to be successfully completed. Due to the high volume of traffic, the page may load somewhat more slowly than usual.
Watch Dogs 2 will automatically go to your Uplay library after registration via the website. If the game does not appear in your client right away, just be patient – a little bit – according to Ubisoft, the rewards including the in-game bonuses should end up in your account from July 13, 2020.
