Heard legion was a decent - ok game so this result is not good for ubisoft

Offering discount price so soon is not a good sign
I beat the game on UbiPlay: 1 month, €15, WDL and AC:V. I did beat the first, and dropped the second. I am not looking to get into WDL, maybe AC:V once it hits the €15 mark in a year or so.

It’s how they do things with pretty much all their games. They sell as much as they can the first week or two at full price, and then entice further purchases with price reductions soon after. It’s why I rarely if ever buy their games in the first month. Valhalla sold well and was still cheap the past couple of weeks.

This was especially true for Immortals. came out first week of December if I remember correctly, and I got it for half off in January. I think was half off for nearly two months.

Yep. I bought it on PS5 and XSX for the price it would have cost at launch on one console a month later, and the benefit of waiting was that a lot of bugs got fixed and PS5 performance issues were patched.

[HELP]

Guys, I downloaded the trial (free weekend) version on the PS5, but I think it's only the PS4 version. It's a 42.163 GB file. Can anyone help?

I absolutely loved the invasion hide and seek game in the other 2 games.... and bought this for PS5 during the first sale for half off. I hadn't read anything and assumed it would be there again.

I was SHOCKED when it wasn't.

So then there's an online update.... I go in and it was some other nonsense I couldn't care less about... uninstalled the thing.

Big time disappointed.

Watch Dogs: Legion will be available to play for free from March 25-29 on Xbox and PlayStation systems, the Epic Games Store, and through the Ubisoft store.
Every character in near-future London will be available to recruit and play as during the Free Trial Weekend in both single-player and online modes.

You will also be able to explore half of the eight boroughs including the City of London and Islington & Hackney. Additionally, you will be able to discover the game’s storyline up to the Skye Larsen mission.

All game progression will carry over to the full game upon purchase.

To tempt you into a purchase, there will be discounts on both the game and the season pass across selected platforms:

  • Xbox: From March 12 – April 15 – 50% off of the Standard and Ultimate editions.
  • PlayStation: From March 24-31 – 50% off of the Standard and Ultimate editions and 25% off of the season pass
  • Ubisoft Store on Windows PC: From March 18 to April 9 – 50% off of the Standard, Gold & Ultimate editions, and 25% off of the season pass
  • Epic Games Store on Windows PC: March 25 – April 8 – 50% off of the Standard, Gold & Ultimate editions, and 25% off of the season pass
  • Stadia: From March 25-29, 50% off of the Standard, Gold & Ultimate editions and 25% off of the season pass

Trying to draw people back just as they release the online mode I think.

The main game is worth it, so much fun and banter. The online is meh. Got the season pass afterwards. Bought the main game for around $40 few months back.

If you're on PS5, the free trial is giving you only the PS4 version, not the improved PS5 version for some reason. I assume it has something to do with the Dumb Delivery that Sony uses for cross-gen titles.

I'm getting hard crashes with the opening level on Series X. Is this still a thing? I thought there were meant to be patches?

I just tried out the trial, I played one hour and I just uninstalled... Damn this game is lazy, WD 1 and 2 are way better, I liked both but this one is just crap, soo boring and uninteresting, it's like they didn't even tried.

Tried it out. The ray tracing is very cool, and will be here to stay, but it’s clearly a gen early - 30fps just doesn’t cut it.

I did the same thing last night. Even for 19 dollars this is a fucking 'no' from me. How are they three games into this series and the driving is still so garbage? And after months of playing 60fps games on PS5 and XSX, I can't do 30fps anymore unless the game is absolutely stellar, which this one is definitely not.

Has there been any talk of a 60 fps patch for next gen? I like the idea of the game but won't buy it if there won't be one.

I played it for the weekend and got into it a little.

I'm fine with just that experience though. I don't care to play it anymore than that.

I also tried it for the free WE. What a shitty game. The randomizer for characters is outright lazy. Got for my selection of starters two people with the same uber-quirky info-blurb. In the game itself some of the faces seem to be recycled very often. But the worst thing was the driving. Holy shit, it's worse than ever before. Nothing there feels good, not the steering, not the accellerating, nor the physics of it all (collisions look like fucking glitches), holy hell.

At last, I just fuddled with the underground fight ring side missions and made my 58 years old children's book authorette the champion of all 5 pits.

Cameron was a fucking badass!

Can anyone confirm if this is 60fps or at least have a 60fps option on Series X/PS5? The $20 price is a great deal if it's 60fps

It's a lesson I'm learning a bit myself. All Ubisoft games I now wait for a sale because they come down so quickly in price. UNLESS it's a must have title I need to play at launch... Which hasn't happened yet lol.

Haven't seen 60fps on the PS5 nor the Series X unfortunately and I don't think they're planning to. They did the ray tracing on it, but it's currently with 30fps.

That's a bummer, even division 2 got a 60fps frame rate unlock path on PS5/XSX. Wish devs prioritized in offering a frame rate unlock for their games.

I still cant believe they are forcing those ugly ray tracing reflections and didnt bother to add a 60fps mode without them. Also WD2 is so much better than Legion its insane how backwards this game is compared to that open world goat.

Yeah that's right and the game feels like a new experience. Getting these 60fps updates feel like we've been having weights on our backs this entire time. I'd like to see WD have the same treatment as it can really make the game shine at this point.

Couldn't have agreed more, I ended up getting Division 2 the moment 60fps patch went live. Have poured in 70 hours into Division 2 campaign so far, so damn transformative. They even brought back the volumetric fog and SSR stuff that was missing due to a dev side issue when releasing the frame rate unlock patch on PS5.

I didn't find a way to download the PS5 version (only the PS4 one would download) during the free weekend so I gave up.

Yeah I saw that fog update. I think I'll go back into it at some point. Let me know if you want to co-op!

Don't recommend, while I liked the first two parts. The driving model, no skills tree and no real protagonist are main issues - instead you run throughout the city as a random Fortnite avatar.
