A couple of years ago now Watch Dogs made its debut at E3 2012 and wowed everyone with how incredible it looked—one of the first games to really get people excited about what the incoming “next generation” of gaming consoles might be able to offer.
Well, the game was finally released this week, and those who haven’t yet had a chance to play are wondering: is it really as good as it looked like it would be? That appears to depend on whoever it is that’s playing. But a trio of videos are here to shed a little bit of light on the look of the game specifically.
The first video is a comparison video, offering glimpses of what Watch Dogs looks like on all platforms, PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PS3. The second video compares that amazing original gameplay demo from 2012 to how the game looks on PS4. The third compares the 2012 demo to the best possible option, the PC version. All videos can be seen below.
Ubisoft has released a new gameplay demo video for Watch Dogs, this time around focusing on online multiplayer gameplay action.
The video looks at three different multiplayer options. The first is similar to a game like Dark Souls, in which you can invade another players’ game in an attempt to hack them. Doing so successfully will benefit you, but if the player identifies you and then stops you, they benefit. If they identify you but don’t stop you, both players can benefit. Next is an option that allows you to play with someone who’s controlling elements of your world via their tablet. And lastly, the competitive multiplayer in which you and your friends face off against another team in an attempt to be the first to secure an encrypted file. It’s basically like capture the flag.
You can see all three of these Watch Dogs multiplayer options in action in the video below.
One of the most anticipated games of the next generation, which begins next month when the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are released, is the Ubisoft title Watch Dogs.
The game was scheduled for release on for all platforms, this generation and next. Unfortunately for those who have been eagerly awaiting its arrival after numerous incredible gameplay demos, that wait just became a whole lot longer.
It’s been announced that the game has been delayed, and will now be released sometime in the spring of 2014. You can read a full statement on the decision below.
