In preparation for Ubisoft Forward last weekend, the publisher announced that it would give away copies to all who tuned into the stream and linked their uPlay account. Unfortunately, Ubi's PC launcher couldn't quite handle the demand, so Ubisoft is making up for it with a more expansive giveaway.
As an apology to those who encountered errors when trying to link their account to get Watch Dogs 2 during the event, Ubisoft will now be giving the game away to anyone who has a uPlay account.
Don't worry! We'll be giving out the rewards to all of you, even if you were unable to log in successfully. Sit back and enjoy the show!

Ubisoft was also giving away other smaller in-game rewards for various titles in its library throughout the event. All of these will also be given away to uPlay account holders.
This isn't an automatic process though, you will need to head over to the registration page, HERE. From there, you can log in with your uPlay account and Ubisoft will credit your account with all of the rewards.

KitGuru Says: It is a shame that uPlay encountered issues during this process but perhaps it will spur the publisher along with bringing some better upgrades to the infrastructure. It isn't the worst launcher, but it could also be a lot better.
