New Watch_Dogs Trailer Unveiled, Showcases Untrustworthy Heroes

Nik Schmidt's Avatar + Posted by Nik Schmidt on May 08, 2014 // Community Developer, Ubisoft

Hello again! We’re only three weeks out from launch, and everyone here at the Ubisoft offices is firing on all cylinders to get the game out to you on May 27th. In the short time remaining, we want to provide you with more information about the world of Watch_Dogs on PS4 and PS3. Today, let’s take a look at the game’s main characters.



As you can see, it’s never totally clear who is teamed up with Aiden. The world of Watch_Dogs is filled with duality, danger, and warring factions. Take someone like Jordi: you wouldn’t call him a friend, but rather a business associate. Everything can change with the touch of a smart phone, keystroke, or pull of a trigger — it’s volatile, to say the least. It remains to be seen how Aiden interacts with these individuals, but they’re all unique and complex characters that help add color and intrigue to the game’s story.

Stay tuned — the next three weeks are going to be jam-packed with new info and assets from our team. We hope you’re as excited as we are for Watch_Dogs’ May 27th launch! And remember, everything is connected.

You can pre-order your copy of Watch_Dogs now. And be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest news and updates.

Looks amazing!! Too bad the digital copy is $70 here in Canada when I picked up a physical pre-order from Amazon.ca for $50.

I refuse to pay more than $59 for any game. Just on principle. But digital more than physical? Come on.

Game still looks solid though. Glad I got it for the price I did.

Pretty good trailer…Watch Dogs is the 1st next-gen multiplat game that I’m really excited to play.Can’t wait….can already see me pouring 60+ hours in this baby.Won’t even touch that online.

So ah f**k Clara and his chest tattoo also didn’t expected T-Bone to be 52….Jordi looks like a great character and Anthony looks like Marlon Wayans lol.

“the next three weeks are going to be jam-packed with new info and assets”

Please no more spoilers…it could be just as easy as to avoid any new Watch Dogs informations,videos…yup I know but I can’t help myself.

I’m still not sure about this game even though it’s in my home town of the windy city. Ubisoft servers is what I’m really concerned about. Since past games from them have had server issues. I just can’t be wasting my money on a game with so so servers.

Nik, I came pretty close to cancel my very long-standing pre-order when I heard about multiplayer invasions, which is not unique, but stolen from Demon’s and Dark Souls. I had to do research to find that I can opt out of invasions while online so I did not cancel.

I got my Watch Dogs Gold Edition preordered on PlayStation 4. Glade I went all digital this generation. Never again will I have to put up with long lines or being in the cold at midnight when Preorders start to download early and have them ready at 12:01am. Thank you Watch Dogs team for putting your all in this game. Looking forward to play the game and keep the magic flowing in your team.

So this means inFAMOUS Second Son looks way better? Both are open-world games

Getting more excited with each video.

What’s funny is these types of games were never my cup of tea. But since I ventured to try some action/adventure/3rd person shooters I’ve totally changed my mind and always looking for a fun one.

This one is looking awesome and if you folks at Ubisoft can actually get into game what’s being advertised about the interaction/choices/consequences/rewards with an open world, then this will be a dang solid title. Here’s to hoping high!

@ 19 overDOS – Not only that…but that means that to an open-world game be better “technically” than Second Son only another Infamous…a multiplat game will never look better than a Sony game…never.Nobody can pull off Infamous graphics without Sony’s help.

@22 Welmosca: “a multiplat game will never look better than a Sony game…never. Nobody can pull off Infamous graphics without Sony’s help.”

Sarcasm I hope?

- NBA2k 14 looked REAL. To the point of friends coming over while playing and asking what game I was watching…
- Battlefield 3 & 4 were both great technical achievements and BF4 offers some of the best weather effects ever seen in game
- Project Cars – another multiplatform game that looks to best Gran Turismo when it comes to visual quality…we’ll see about the physics
- Crysis 3…even though I’m not a fan of the series, one cannot deny the beautiful worlds Crytek has created is near lifelike

If you want to focus on open world games…
- MGSV looks and plays phenomenal on PS4 and at 60fps…
- The Witcher 3 looks pretty damn good to me

My point is … just stop it. Stop with the fanboy crap. Your brown-nosing will not earn you any free games or a position working for Sony. Infamous looks great, probably one of the best looking games this generation – but in no way are pretty graphics only capable by “SONY”…some kids are just so damn ignorant…
