Ubisoft Holding Free Watch Dogs: Legion Weekend

Oink oink, it sounds like corporate greed has been banished. Well, at least in the real world. Ubisoft is continuing its surprise giveaway of free games, as Watch Dogs: Legion is the latest critically acclaimed title to get a free-to-play weekend.

Only recently, we covered how Far Cry 5 was free to grab for just a short window of time - which seemed to be a clever way to promote the upcoming release of Far Cry 6. While we shouldn't take Watch Dogs: Legion going free to signal the arrival of a new game already, it's great that Ubisoft is letting you take a taste of its impressive back catalogue. 

When is Watch Dogs: Legion going free?

Straight from the horse's (pig's?) mouth, an Ubisoft blog post announced that Watch Dogs: Legion will kick off its free-to-play weekend tomorrow (Friday, September 3), with it running through to Sunday (September 5). The Far Cry 5 free weekend encompassed all platforms, but sorry guys, Watch Dogs: Legion is only on select consoles and PC.

If you want to play, you can visit this tech-ravaged London on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Google Stadia. It's a bummer for Xbox players, but you can't win 'em all. If you're sold on the idea of a free version of Watch Dogs: Legion you can pre-download a copy now, so it's ready for launch. If you're on PC, you can either go through the Epic Games Store or Ubisoft Connect. 

Progress will be rolled over once the weekend has finished, meaning your recruits will still be by your side if you stump up for the full version. Finally, Watch Dogs: Legion is going on sale, meaning you can take your free weekend further. Here's a price breakdown of Ubisoft's slashed prices for tech terror:

  • PC: 60% off standard, deluxe, gold, and ultimate editions. 25% off season pass.
  • Stadia: 55% off deluxe edition, 50% off gold edition. 
  • PS5 and PS4: 67% off deluxe and gold editions.

What is Watch Dogs: Legion about?

Considering Watch Dogs: Legion only came out last November, not everyone had time to try it out. You know, most of us were busy with the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold WarSpider-Man: Miles Morales, and Resident Evil Village. As the sequel to 2016's Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft once again found a way to completely reinvent the Watch Dogs story - while keeping its Black Mirror-esque core and hacking abilities.

Channelling some serious V for Vendetta vibes, the third game in the Watch Dogs franchise ditches the idea of having a real protagonist. Instead, players get to control a number of NPCs and recruit them to the cause of hacker syndicate, DedSec. It's a unique idea that won over critics at release.

Even though Watch Dogs: Legion's early days were dogged by performance and bug issues, it's a whole new London these days. If you like battling the undead in CoD or The Last of Us, Legion recently added zombies. Elsewhere, PS5 players can enjoy a glossy next-gen patch that boosts things to 60fps.

With crossovers for everything from Netflix's Money Heist to Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed games, the publisher has vowed to keep supporting Watch Dogs: Legion. Basically, there couldn't be a better time to board a double-decker bus and go for a tour of ol' London town.
