There were reports over the weekend that NVidia and Ubisoft will be teaming up again for a holiday season graphics card and free game promotion. Finally, it has been confirmed that starting Nov. 22 there are participating retailers that will roll out this promotion.

According to Kitguru, purchasing NVidia's GTX 1080 or a GTX 1070 from participating retailers will include a free copy of "Watch Dogs 2" that will be launched on PC on Nov. 29. The game has been released on consoles and has been getting good reviews, which takes a huge leave from the first game "Watch Dogs 1" in terms of story and character development.

In "Watch Dogs 2", Marcus Holloway is in the control with his group of hacker friends in an attempt to take the corrupt ctOS system down. Kitguru describes the game as a more light-hearted game with an amusing and entertaining vibe, which is far from the unpredictable Aiden Pierce and his journey to take revenge in "Watch Dogs 1", which was released in 2014.

"Watch Dogs 2" also features some of the NVidia technology on PC alongside HBAO+, TXAA and HFTS/PCSS shadows, which is similar to "Watch Dogs 1". Also, the game will be shipping with support for Ansel, which is NVidia's powerful screenshot tool that can take ultra high-resolution shots.

Additionally, the seamless online multiplayer feature of "Watch Dogs 2" is now available allowing Bounty mode to occur seamlessly without using the in-game multiplayer app. The update 1.05 has been released as well, which includes important crash fixes that improve stability of the game.

Set within a fictionalized version of the San Francisco Bay Area, "Watch Dogs 2" is played from a third-person perspective. Its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle featured in the game, such as cars, trucks, buses, cable cars, motorbikes, quad bikes and boats.

"Watch Dogs 2" players control Marcus Holloway, a hacker who works with the hacking group DedSec to take down the city's advanced surveillance system. He also has improved acrobatic skills and has the ability to parkour around the city.
