Ubisoft Forward was wrapped up just today and while the event itself was directed to give special insight on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Far Cry 6, one of the highlights about the stream was the fact that Ubisoft promised a bunch of rewards for those tuning into their event.
While of course being a publicity move, the deal provided a few Uplay games most noticeably Watch Dogs 2, as expected in such dire situations, the whole server went down due to such an influx of users. This, in turn, caused many to be unable to sign up their Uplay accounts and claim their free copy of the game.
While all this fiasco took place, Ubisoft Support on Twitter shortly acknowledged the situation and confirmed that they would, in fact, be allowing everyone to claim and redeem their rewards regardless of the stream. While we’ve been seeing how things have been going south for the company with its top executives shuffled and leaks prior to the event.
The studio did a decent job allowing enthusiasts to enjoy the stream regardless of what remains. This not only allows more players to join up on Watch Dogs 2 but also gives a sense of satisfaction to those looking forward to the event. So what are you waiting for? grab your free copy now if you haven’t already.
