Watch Dogs gets a release date and new trailer

first_imgUbisoft unveiled its brand new IP Watch Dogs in June last year at E3. It was one of the more memorable events from the conference, and certainly made it on to my “ones to watch” list. Now, almost a year later, Ubisoft has decided to reveal the game’s release date alongside a brand new trailer.Watch Dogs is coming to PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on November 19. The game is also coming to both the PS4 and next Xbox, and Ubisoft has also confirmed today that Watch Dogs will be a launch title for Sony’s console. Details of the next-gen Xbox launch have yet to be revealed.In addition, Ubisoft has done a deal with GameStop and comic book artist Alex Ross to allow anyone pre-ordering the game through GameStop to get the limited edition poster seen in the video below:The game is firmly based in reality with no apparent special powers available to use. Instead you can take advantage of the communications within the city, hacking into computers, relying on your smartphone, and falling back on the gun in your pocket when necessary.As a PS4 launch title it certainly helps Sony market the new console. And what will be interesting to see is who launches their console first: Sony or Microsoft? It’s pretty much guaranteed the next Xbox will have this as a launch game, too, so who’s going to have it as an exclusive for a few weeks or  months?The game certainly looks great on next-gen platforms at least, as this video of the game running on the PS4 demonstrates:last_img
