Hello again! We’re getting closer to Watch_Dogs‘ May 27th launch for PS4 and PS3, and everyone on the Ubisoft team is unbelievably excited. In less than three weeks you’ll finally be able to explore and hack the open world of Chicago, go head to head with your friends in a highly immersive multiplayer mode, and so much more! We think once you finally get to play Watch_Dogs, everything will be worth the wait.
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.
Whisked away to a mystical realm and faced with menacing creatures, the small-framed Aurora is tasked with a great quest: to reclaim the Sun, Moon, and Stars from the Black Queen. In Ubisoft Montreal’s love letter to JRPGs, Child of Light invites players to adventure through enchanting vistas and forge alliances with eccentric heroes.
Watch_Dogs will rewire the way open-world games are played. A near-future Chicago, teeming with criminal intent, serves as a playground, weapon, and resource in one interconnected latticework of data. And at the heart of it all stands Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker with a painful history. Within the first few hours of Watch_Dogs on PS4, Aiden’s story of revenge has enough potential to match the anticipation the gaming community has leveled at it.
If there’s one thing better than blazing through one of Trials Fusion’s trickiest courses, it’s knowing you did it faster — and with fewer crashes — than your friends. Online leaderboards lie at the heart of the Trials universe, and with Trials Fusion on PS4 we’re taking that competitive experience one step further.
Before a crumbling statue in a dark wood, Aurora faces her first enemy in Child of Light. As it screeches in the little girls’ direction, she hefts her oversized sword into the air with supreme confidence. She’s unfazed by its arachnid frame and menacing gait. This encounter depicts Child of Light in its purest form: unflinching, beautiful, and defiant of expectations. It’s a PS3 and PS4 RPG that celebrates the RPG tradition while striking out on a new path, wholly its own.
With the freedom afforded by Disrupt, an impressive new game engine exclusive to Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft has created a version of Chicago that is almost impossibly alive. Learn all about the new engine and how we’ve created a living, breathing Chicago inside Watch_Dogs.
