Back in the day finding a demo (or shareware) version of a game was pretty easy. Video game and computer magazines would be more than happy to bundle CDs packed with demos for video games and software, although oddly enough these days developers and publishers aren’t so quick to offer up trials.


The good news is that if you’ve been eyeing Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs 2 but aren’t sure if this is the game for you, not to worry as Ubisoft has announced that they will be offering gamers a free 3-hour trial that will let them take the game for a spin before deciding whether or not to part with their hard-earned cash.

Ubisoft writes, “Watch Dogs 2 has been racking up praise from critics since its November release, but if you’re still on the fence about whether to jump in, you’re about to get a risk-free chance to explore its wide-open, hacker-friendly re-creation of the San Francisco Bay Area. A free three-hour trial of the full game will be available for download starting January 17 on PS4, and January 24 on Xbox One.”

The free trial will let gamers play the game in its entirety, and it will even give gamers access to multiplayer, although this will require gamers to have a subscription to PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live. As expected if you do decide to purchase the game in full, you’ll be able to transfer your progress and pick up where you left off.
