Watch Dogs 2 received impressive critical scores since its launch and is considered by many to be better than the first game. Sadly, few have actually chosen to play it and with no playable demo out for it there’s little incentive for players to try out the game.  Well, today that predicament ends.  Ubisoft has just announced that they will be offering a free trial version of Watch Dogs 2 for PS4 and Xbox One players!

The trial version of the game is fully playable with the caviat that players have a three-hour time limit.  Sadly you can’t accumulate achievements or trophies in the trial game, but Ubisoft says that players who upgrade to the full version on Xbox One will unlock all of their earned trophies after upgrading their demo version to a full version.

The trial client is available starting today on the PS4 and January 24th on Xbox One.  There has been no announcement about a PC version. Since the entire game client is included in the trial it can be a pretty hefty download, weighing in at around 28GB.

Watch Dogs 2 is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

The original Splatoon came out of nowhere and easily became my favorite console online multiplayer game in quite a while. I loved everything about it from the art style to the gameplay. The fact that Nintendo continued to support the game with free content releases after it launched kept its community playing for a long time!

Last night at the Nintendo Switch live presentation, Splatoon 2 was announced!

Nintendo promises that just like with the first game, new content and special in-game events will be offered post-launch!

Splatoon 2 is coming Summer 2017 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.

Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta Announced January 11, 2017

Enormous news out of 343 Industries today, they have just announced the second Halo Wars 2 multiplayer test will be starting January 20th!

This Beta Test will go on for ten days and will be open to Xbox One and Windows 10 testers. I’m sure PC players will be happy to hear that as they weren’t invited to the first Halo Wars 2 Beta Test back in June.

Sadly, any rewards you earn during the Beta will not carry over to the full game. However, Beta players will not be left empty handed when the full game comes out. Anyone who plays the beta will be guaranteed one Blitz pack that they will be able to carry over to the full retail game. You’ll be able to earn a second Blitz pack after completing a single game in the Beta.

Halo Wars 2 is coming Feb 2017 to Xbox One and Windows 10.
