Watch Dogs review hack warning

By Alan Ng - May 18, 2014

Watch Dogs is just days away, with the impressive looking game set for a simultaneous launch on May 27 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. With over a week to go still though, we have seen Watch Dogs reviews appear online already and Ubisoft has been quick to send out the message that they are not official.

If you have been keeping up with the latest whispers for the game, you’ll know that some retailers have inevitably broken the street date for the game. We told you about some Watch Dogs PS4 gameplay that had gone live ahead of schedule showing the game in 1080p, but now some have taken things even further.

Some of you may be aware that one review in particular has become a talking point over the weekend. This review however has been deemed invalid by Ubisoft, with the publisher keen to let gamers know that valid reviews will be going live close to or exactly on the May 27 official release.

In true character, check out what Ubisoft had to say on the early reviews popping up online:

We saw some of the early gameplay on PS4 and have to say that it looked fantastic. We know that the game won’t be 1080p native on PS4 as previously reported, but rather 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbox One.

Ubisoft has been keen to state that it is all about the gameplay experience though, rather than specifically trying to hit the 1080p resolution. Take a look at some early PS4 footage though and you’ll still see that the game looks rather good.
