New Watch Dogs 2 demo lets you play the full game for 3 hours

Haven't picked up Watch Dogs 2 yet? Ubisoft's giving you three hours to explore its smart-phone dystopic vision of San Francisco via a free demo, available now on PS4 and coming on January 24 to Xbox One. The trial version is nearly identical to the full game, and it lets you try out the single-player campaign as well as co-op and competitive multiplayer - you just have to stop playing or pay up once your three free hours expire.

If you do decide to buy the full game, the trial version will unlock into the full version and all your progress will carry over instantaneously. Handy!

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
