Did you miss the Watch Dogs 2 giveaway (opens in new tab) during the Ubisoft Forward livestream? Don't worry, you're not alone. There were two ways to get your free copy, the first being via Twitch drop if you had your Twitch and Ubisoft accounts linked, and the second by watching the stream through the Uplay client. Due to the number of viewers trying to do both, people couldn't log in to one and were greeted with nothing but a loading screen on the other.

During the livestream Ubisoft tweeted, via their support account (opens in new tab), "We'll be giving out the rewards to all of you, even if you were unable to log in successfully." And now they're making good on the promise. All you have to do is go to this web page (opens in new tab) and log in with your Ubisoft account to collect your hacker game as well as a bundle of in-game rewards for various other Ubisoft games.

Watch Dogs 2 won't show up in your Uplay account straight away, however. I wouldn't expect it until July 13 at the earliest, based on this (opens in new tab), but hopefully soon you'll be sending an RC car off to do missions for you (opens in new tab).

Watch Dogs Legion, by the way, is due on October 29. Here's what Chris thought of its mix-and-max teams of special agents (opens in new tab).

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, and Playboy.com, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was published in 2015, he edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and actually did play every Warhammer videogame.
