Ubisoft recently announced a free weekend for Watch Dogs: Legion. Beginning on 25 March 2021, Watch Dogs: Legion will be made available to play for fans until 29 March on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
The pre-load for the free trial will be going live on 24 March on PlayStation consoles and PC. It is notable that the free trial on PlayStation 5 is actually the PS4 version of Watch Dogs: Legion played through backwards compatibility.
