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.
You’ll get full access to all the game’s features, including its seamless co-op and multiplayer*, so what will you do with your three hours? You can dive into missions, get to know Marcus Holloway and DedSec, explore the Bay Area freely, infiltrate restricted areas with hacked equipment, wreak havoc with a friend in co-op, and get up to whatever open-world shenanigans your heart desires. Those three hours are yours to play whenever you want. And if you want to buy the full game at any time, your trial progress will transfer to the full game, so you can keep your momentum going.
