In case you don’t already know, the successor to Ubisoft‘s memorable sandbox title Watch Dogs was released back in November 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Watch Dogs 2 shifts away from the world of the highly-vigilant Aiden Pearce, and turns its attention to a brand new protagonist named Marcus Holloway, as well as a brand new ctOS version. ctOS 2.0 was presumed as a state-of-the-art operating system, responsible for providing a more secure and more efficient concrete jungle life. Naturally, due to ctOS 2.0 being controlled by crooked conglomorates, both the privacy and welfare of citizens are being compromised. As Marcus, a San Fransisco Bay Area resident and hacker, you get to ally with the infamous hacker group Dedsec in order to reveal the hazards caused by ctOS 2.0.
If online synopses, reviews, and gameplay trailers didn’t give you enough of an urge to spend your dollars on Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft is giving you a low-risk opportunity to decide on whether or not the sequel is the game for you: a free trial. The Watch Dogs 2 demo is three hours long, covering all of its features – from in-game missions, to hack-gatecrashing or free-roaming around the Bay Area. As an added value for PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold members, the trial will give you access to online co-op and competitive multiplayer. The three hour-long, all-inclusive demo can be played at any time – and if you end up purchasing Watch Dogs 2, your progress from the demo will be integrated into the full game. The free trial is currently available on PlayStation 4 and is set for an Xbox One launch on January 24th. For more info on the Watch Dogs 2 trial, feel free to check out the game’s official FAQs.
