Watch Dogs gameplay analysis on next-gen

By Alan Ng - Mar 27, 2013

We have a welcome update on Watch Dogs to bring you now, as Ubisoft has decided to release an interesting new gameplay video. This one gives us another look at the footage we saw during Sony’s PS4 presentation, but this time with added commentary analysis allowing to take a closer look at the inner-depths of the game.

More specifically, we get a more intimate introduction to Aiden Pearce courtesy of the Chicago Central Operating System or the CtOS as it is commonly referred to in-game. The commentary provided shows how Pearce has managed to hack into different aspects of the CtOS, in order to gain funds for himself from another person’s private bank account, or evade the Chicago Police Department if he needs to make a quick getaway.

While you may be disappointed that this isn’t new gameplay as such, we think it is a clever video none the less which expands on what we saw during Sony’s PS4 event. We are already seing plenty of comparisons with the likes of GTA V and Sleeping Dogs and we have a feeling that this is just one example of Ubisoft’s efforts to try and make the game stand out on its own merit.

The video also teases the possibility of Aiden having a mystery person watching over him, which could prove to be an ally or an enemy. The graphics look decent enough, but perhaps a lot of you will be expecting much more when the game is running on PC optimal settings, since Ubisoft has already confirmed PC to be the lead platform of the game.

Watch Dogs is also releasing on Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and the next Xbox so there will be no shortage of platforms to play the game on. Have you decided which version you are getting? Ubisoft are targeting a release before the end of the year, so expect to see the next major reveal at E3 2013.
