‘Watch Dogs: Legion’ is free this weekend for PC and PlayStation owners

Preload the game now ready for the weekend

Ubisoft has announced that Watch Dogs: Legion will be free to play from Friday, September 3 until Sunday, September 5.

Announced via a blog post, Watch Dogs: Legion will be playable on PS5, PS4, PC, and Google Stadia throughout this time and will be entirely free to try.

Like with other free-to-play weekends, players can preload the game now on all participating platforms so they are ready to play in time for the weekend. Note – PC players can go through either the Epic Games Store or the Ubisoft store to do this.

Also like other free-to-play weekends, any progress made during the weekend will carry over into the full game, no doubt as a plan to entice players into purchasing the full game after the free weekend concludes.

Watch Dogs: Legion is currently on sale across all platforms with the game available for 60% off on PC for the standard, deluxe, gold, and ultimate editions, and 25% off the season pass, while Stadia players can get 55% off the deluxe edition or 50% off the gold version.

PS5 and PS4 players enjoy 67% off the deluxe and gold editions for a limited time only.

Ubisoft continues to regularly support Watch Dogs: Legion with a trailer recently released to highlight the Money Heist DLC, which is a crossover with the TV show of the same name. The game has also recently enjoyed a crossover with Assassin’s Creed with season pass owners gaining access to Darcy, an assassin.


Elsewhere, TimTheTatMan has signed an exclusive YouTube streaming deal, following multiple other content creators who have joined the site in recent months. To celebrate his new exclusivity deal, Timothy ‘TimTheTatMan’ Betar will be streaming later today (September 2) with fellow YouTube streamers DrDisrespect, Courage and DrLupo.
