As for the PlayStation fans, those who do not have their own copy of Watch Dogs 2 yet can enjoy the PS4 game’s free demo available until Monday, January 23, 8 a.m. PT/ 11 a.m. ET, according to a post on PlayStation Lifestyle.Watch Dogs 2, published by Ubisoft, has only been officially on the market for about two months now. Aside from the free demo, discounted price tags are also available for the standard edition, Gold Edition and Deluxe Edition of the open world action-adventure video game.

Watch Dogs 2 builds upon the strengths of the original game, whilst polishing up aspects that lacked depth to deliver a coherent, comprehensive experience,” Games Radar shared in its review. “Its diverse cast and (mostly) thought-provoking narrative trump the occasionally repetitive, maddening gunplay, and though the urban youth humour occasionally falls flat, for the most part its characters feel, talk, and react convincingly,” it added.

The PlayStation Store is also offering a free demo for Crystal Dynamic’s Rise of The Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration as well as for MilitAnt and UNO Winter Theme DLC.

Just like the Xbox Store’s,PlayStation Store’s current PS4 deals also include discount for the new game launching today – the turn-based strategy game Siegecraft Commander, where gamers can experience the Knight campaign to fight the Lizardmen or play a PvP combat system that provides “fast-paced real-time strategy action or tactical turn-based gameplay, according to the game’s PlayStation page.
