Surprisingly, the Ubisoft website is in absolute shambles and it's impossible to log in and claim Watch Dogs 2. No one could have seen this coming.

Yep, just completely wasted 15 min trying to log in.  Rayman Origins & Legends are the only things that keep me from completely hating Ubi.

About 30 minutes ago I was able to load up the stream where they were playing some trials game and giving out game codes but I had to leave so I just left the stream running. Hopefully that counts. More likely it probably logged me off the moment I left the house.

Logging into my Ubisoft account appears to be impossible at the moment. I'm watching the stream on Twitch and had linked my Ubisoft account to it for drops prior to today.

Was able to login to the client now and I see Watch Dogs 2 there, so my earlier attempt to redeem via the direct link was successful.

Finally was able to get drops enabled on Twitch. Geez what a pain! Missed the whole show just staring at a login screen. Better count for my free game! 

 

Edit - lol just saw the ubisoft tweet saying everyone is getting all the loots.  Should have known....

I will say Watch Dogs: Legion, AC:Valhalla, and Far Cry 6 all look great tho.

If you didn't get onto UPLAY to get Watch Dogs 2 free & other extra rewards, here's a message from their stream:

Kotaku spent 4 hours w/ Watch Dogs: Legion:

Worth noting from this:

Permadeath is no longer required in this game.

Up to the player, if they want to play with that feature...or not.

That Project Warlock game was also a freebie on Twitch Prime at some point. Luckily I checked before I bought it on Steam.

Thanks for the link Mr. Purrsident since apparently leaving my pc on the stream earlier didn't qualify me for a copy.

The link isn't working for me... but I voted for a dog in the US Senate so maybe it's not suppose to.

Edit: Actually, after a couple of refreshes it work.

For those who have $10 coupons (for games over $15), might be some stuff over $15 worthwhile over there.

UPLAY games on Epic should work with direct-link over to UPLAY.

To direct-link: on EGS Launcher, you need to link your EGS account to your UPLAY account...

...So you can let UPLAY do the download instead, if you like.

 

With $10 Coupon below price (for price without coupon, just add $10):

AC Syndicate: Gold = $8

AC Origins: Gold = $9

AC Origins: Season Pass (only) = $6

AC Odyssey: Gold = $23

AC Odyssey: Season Pass (only) = $10

Ended up grabbing Doom 64 and Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar. 
Doom 64 looks like it'll be enough dumb fun to justify a buck fifty, and Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar just has such a ridiculous backstory that my curiosity got the better of me.  The story is just insane. https://www.youtube....h?v=xDyXSCd2Lp0    

 

I fully expect I'll be refunding Grimoire, but after refreshing my memory about the whole insane saga, I just had to see what it ended up actually being like. 

Ahh the memories, from like 15 years ago. Crazy Clive. If I remember right he said he was never going to discount the game. It will probably sit in my wishlist forever.

It will prompt you to link after you purchase and when you download the game/s IIFC

So, after purchasing on EGS and linking to uplay, is the game that was purchased on EGS considered owned by my ubi account?

Yes - for more info, see MysterD's post below.  :D

Yes!

 

What's nice is: you only have to use UPLAY, if you so desire, after you do the linking.

 

I have GR: Breakpoint from EGS (bought it a while ago there).

 

So, log into the EGS Launcher app with your EGS account; select the UbiSoft game to do the linking (GR: Breakpoint in my case); link your UPLAY account trough EGS (by using your UPLAY info, once the box pops up); boot-up UPLAY & sign into UPLAY; and now you will only need your UPLAY account to download & use that game going forward.

 

EDIT:

See above.

Was Far Cry 4 this cheap during the Summer sale?  Might pick it up.  Sort of want the bundle for Blood Dragon and Far Cry 2 but zero interest in Far Cry Primal which jacks the price up another $6.

 

Will also consider Far Cry 5/New Dawn on Epic because it's just a U-Play key, anyway.  Still have that $10 coupon.

According to ITAD Far Cry 4 was $11.99 during the Summer sale, and it's current $5.99 price on Steam is listed as the lowest price it's been on Steam.

 

In fact I think most, if not all, of the Far Cry games are at historic lows for Steam.

I think i might just buy fc5 gold for $8ac, which i believe includes the fc3 remaster as part of the season pass content. Then just install them on ubi launcher.

Edit:
Apparently this doesn't work as it should.  Just going to keep my current streak of $0 spent on EGS instead of dealing with the headache & support tickets if/when I don't get the season pass content.
