Watch Dogs 2 free trial available now on PS4!

Like the idea of Watch Dogs 2, but don’t feel like handing over your cold hard cash without trying it first?  What you need is a some kind of – I don’t know – “free trial.”  That might just seal the deal.  Now, hold that thought …

Yes, there’s now a free trial of Watch Dogs 2 available for PlayStation 4 gamers – here’s a link to the PlayStation store page. The trial will also be arriving on Xbox One, right here, on the 24th January.

Download the trial and you’ll have three hours to play around with the full game, including the story and seamless online and co-op modes (the later requiring a PSN Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription, of course.) At the end of those three hours, you might well find yourself agreeing with the critics; Perhaps you’ll find it a “very pleasant surprise” (GamesMaster), fall for the “fun loving attitude” (GameSpot), decide the game is “bold and beautiful” (DigitalSpy), and consider it “the perfect sequel” (TheSixthAxis.) But it’s ok if you’re “left wanting more” (GamesRadar+) – as, should you decide to buy the game, your progress from the trial will transfer over to the full version.
