Watch Dogs Dusts Itself Off And Tries Again, Tries Again

Ubisoft goofed up yesterday, releasing a Watch Dogs trailer that looked pretty terrible even by current-gen standards. Today, they make amends.

As someone with a decent PC, and who'll have at least one of the next-gen consoles at launch, this is what I'm getting mildly excited for.


    Just look at how he puts his hand in his pockets... WOW!!

    Looks much better than yesterday. I can see how they're doing quick editing and cinematics to disguise that the world looks fairly empty though.

    Can't wait for that guy to hand me that motherboard.

    This has gone from one of the most exciting games coming out to one of the least interesting. I'm sick of seeing a new video or feature every couple of weeks. Don't they understand that this over-saturation of information doesn't build excitement, it dulls it.

    The same thing happened with Assassin's Creed III, they just kept going on and on and on without ever really showing anything new. It became annoying.

    Here's an idea, spend less time making videos about how great the game is, and more time getting it finished. Might even come out early! Then we can be blown away.

      The entire AssCreed series is over saturated. It used to be one of my favourite series' and now I'd rather play Russian Roulette with a fully loaded gun :(

        I dunno what you guys see when you look at Watch Dogs, but I see a futuristic, technology-focused Assassin's Creed.

        Maybe it's just me, but it seems like Ubisoft are a little short on ideas.
        They're going to milk this baby dry, too.

          Don't say that, I'm jaded enough about the sequel-mad games industry enough as it is without people demanding sequels for games like Watch Dogs and The Last of Us.

            Haha, can you think of one high-profile game Ubisoft have developed (keep in mind, developed, not just published) that hasn't copped a barrage of sequels? :p

            They have specifically said it's going to have sequels and they aren't interested in games that can't be turned into franchises.

          I had a strong theory that Watch Dogs was a new Assassin's Creed and it was going to be revealed as one at some point. Certain things like the patterns on the back of his coat, the extendable hand weapon, the look of the little computer highlight lines that appear when you view or interact with things. The free-running. The face mask that hides his identity. The cap with the visor, which is as close to a modern day eagle beak shape that you could get away with and blend in. Social stealth. The whole 'target to kill' in the first reveal video idea.

          The list goes on and on.

          I was pretty convinced because I thought they're no way they'd come up with a name as bad as Watch Dogs and go, yeah, that's the best we can do. And I doubt they'd think they could come up with an idea so similar to their major franchise and think they could get away with it.

          Starting to think maybe they are that creatively bankrupt after all.

      Maybe you should've just avoided the videos.

      I'm excited for this game, mainly because I haven't read or watched everything that's out there on it. I've watched two videos and that's it.

        Yeah that's the weird thing, i've barely watched any as well. Same thing happened with Assassin's Creed 3. I stopped watching them after the initial couple. But it still annoyed me to see them coming up in front of me all the time. I don't know, seems weird and petty, but it really did affect my perception of the game.

    Ha looks like they also removed the fake Giant Bomb game of show award, always makes you looks trust worthy when you give yourself an award that a publication doesn't even have.
