Yesterday, Ubisoft announced that a free trial for Watch Dogs 2 is now available for download on the PlayStation 4, and will be released on the Xbox One on January 24, 2017. On that same date, the first add-on content pack, the T-Bone Content Bundle, will also be available on Xbox One and PC.
The Watch Dogs 2 free trial will give both game enthusiasts and newcomers access to 3 hours of free content including seamless multiplayer with three online modes (Multiplayer access requires a Sony PlayStation Plus or Microsoft Xbox Live Gold membership.), “Hacking Invasion”, “Bounty Hunter” and 2 player co-op, as well as story missions and side activities. Purchase is possible at any time without any additional download as all game progress is saved and carried over to the full game.
In Watch Dogs 2 Free Trial, players have the chance to freely explore the entirety of the San Francisco Bay Area open-world, using all gadgets, weapons and advanced hacking options available to shape the fate of the city. They can freely choose their path between stealthy infiltration in restricted areas or wacky action-packed antics with friends. Picking from a wide variety of tools, drones, RC cars and weapons, players can take advantage from a fully hackable city and watch as the game environment reacts to their every move.
In Watch Dogs 2, the player explores the birthplace of the tech revolution as Marcus Holloway, a brilliant young hacker who has fallen victim to ctOS 2.0’s predictive algorithms and accused of a crime he did not commit. In Marcus’s quest to shut down ctOS 2.0 for good, hacking is the ultimate weapon. Players can not only hack into the San Francisco Bay Area’s infrastructure but also every person and any connected device they possess to trigger unpredictable chains of events in this vast open world.
