The free Watch Dogs 2 drop is true but works differently and it was rumored to be coming during the event via YouTube streaming or even Twitch drops. Getting free games or rewards is common during such online events. This is some users considered this to be true and start using multiple accounts to claim the copy. We went through Ubisoft Forward and were not able to catch any scene that claims such rewards. It looks to be restricted region wise, we are unable to pull out much details on that. But we claimed a copy of Watch Dogs 2 through the link shared in second paragraph, and unable to see it yet in the Uplay Library. We will update soon on this.
