We were told that if we logged into our Ubisoft accounts to watch the company’s Ubisoft Forward event Sunday, we could score drops of a free copy of Watch Dogs 2 and more. But stymied by an inability to login, gamers naturally took to social media to complain. Ubisoft eventually decided to just give it away to anyone who registers.

TMW Ubisoft is giving out a free game, and you haven’t used Uplay in years, and Ubisoft has yet to send that Lost Your Password link

and then you figure out you really don’t care enough about Watch Dogs 2 or Ubisoft games to pursue this further #UbiForward pic.twitter.com/8LZx7SMhDq

Ubisoft subsequently posted in its forum and on Twitter that it’ll still be giving out the rewards. All you have to do is register on the site and the company will add it to your library.

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!
