WatchDogs

Watch Dogs was meant to be one of the games to launch with the new generation of consoles, but it was delayed at the 11th hour. The delay’s caused some to lose interest, but we’re still pretty keen for Ubisoft’s open-world hacktastic adventure. To date, we’ve had no idea when the game would actually be released – but now we do. And we’ve got the trailer to prove it.

Watch Dogs is coming on May 27 globally.  The video was originally by leaked by Xbox.com. Enjoy. 

Ubisoft has officially confirmed the release date ahead of embargo. 

 “We are pleased to be able to reveal to gamers all over the world the new release date for Watch Dogs,” said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Ubisoft in a press release.  “We are extremely confident that the additional time we afforded the dev team to refine and polish the game will be more than worth the wait.”

The release also revealvd that the PlayStation versions of the game will receive extra content – 60 minutes worth of extra content.  

“We’re really excited for the launch of Watch Dogs on both PS3 and PS4 and are confident that it will prove to be one of the standout games of 2014,” said Michael Pattison, Vice President, Third Party Relations, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe in the same statement. “It’s a unique and visionary game and we believe that the exclusive content available via PSN will not only excite gamers, but showcase how PlayStation is a preferred destination for Watch Dogs.”

The Wii U version, however, has been delayed. 

I reckon I’ll be playing this on Ps4, then.

    Visuals looks downgraded. Probably to get parity between Xbox and Ps4.

      It actually has a story to tell. The problem is all we got to build hype was footage of stealth combat and hacking traffic to cause accidents

    Not that impressed with visuals and fighting, kindda reminds me of GTAVs mechanics to a degree… Will have to wait and see.

      Thought the exact opposite – but I’m biased. Agree: first few shots look 360ish (why would they do that??) but later, esp. on Aiden’s face, looks great. And I love his brutish fighting style. GTA V had no fighting style unless BS desperation counts as a style.

    If this is unoptomised cr*p on PC like Assassins Creed III & IV were, I’m going to be pissed!

    mmm …. will wait for reviews , have a feeling that its gana score around 7.5 to 8 , not that the score matters .. but my main reason for holding back is to see if the missions are going to be rinse and repeat …AKA assassins creed 1 … witch was a steller looking game , but dropped the ball in terms of game play content …

    my secret hope is that this will be a game changer, in terms of gameplay. all the best for ubisoft and their team …

        I’d probably also give my left nut to have a phone that can do all those things…. But not while I live in SA, maybe London or New York?!?!?!? The 3 CCTV cameras here in Cape Town won’t really help me be a super spy me thinks!!!

      Infamous is at the end of this month. Watchdogs is May so there’s plenty of time to save up. Problem is Dark Souls 2 is also this month I think and that can drain time like no ones businesses
