Revisit the first game in the open world series for free next week.
The Epic Games Stores, regardless of how you feel about it, has become the gift that keeps giving. For over a year now the storefront has featured a variety of completely free games of various sizes and genres. Now, it’s time for the next title to be announced, and it’s a blockbuster blast from the past.
Starting next week, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs will be free on the Epic Games Store. The game is the first in the sci-fi series and features anti-hero Aiden as he searches for revenge with a variety of futuristic gadgets. Unfortunately, the game got something of a reputation because of its large visual downgrade from announcement to final release. Regardless, there’s lots of cool stuff in it and those who haven’t tried it out will get a chance to do so for nothing.
Watch Dogs will be available to download starting March 19th. Currently free on the store is the trio of Anodyne 2: Return To Dust, A Short Hike and Mutazione. You can download all of those from now until Watch Dogs goes live.
