Ubisoft is giving PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners a chance to try out Watch Dogs 2 for free as part of a limited-time trial. Players can explore the game’s single-player and multiplayer for up to three hours, according to a post on the Ubisoft blog.

Watch Dogs 2’s three-hour trial includes “full access to all the game’s features, including its seamless co-op and multiplayer,” Ubisoft says. “You can dive into missions, get to know Marcus Holloway and DedSec, explore the Bay Area freely, infiltrate restricted areas with hacked equipment, wreak havoc with a friend in co-op, and get up to whatever open-world shenanigans your heart desires.”

Players’ experience during the trial will carry over to the full version of the game, should they choose to purchase Watch Dogs 2. The trial requires a full download of the game, which requires 25 to 28 GB of storage space, Ubisoft says.

Watch Dogs 2’s trial is available to download for PS4 via the PlayStation Store today. Xbox One owners can download it starting Jan. 24.
