Watch Dogs PC gameplay is actually PS4 footage

By Alan Ng - Apr 3, 2014

A few weeks ago, we reported on the debate that was brewing for Watch Dog’s graphics, after Ubisoft released a new story mode trailer. At the time, some gamers thought that the graphics had been downgraded from the original 2012 showing, but now we have some new PC footage in 1080p to show you which offers a nice comparison.

Having said that, we thought that the following video was new Watch Dogs PC gameplay, but actually it turns out that the video has been taken from the PS4 version instead.

If you have been keeping yourself up to date with the game’s progress, you’ll know that the game has been delayed and is now on course for a release date in May.

We told you about the downgrade claims in a previous article here, but now there has been some fresh confusion this week. The video you see below was originally released as new PC footage in 1080p.

However, we’ve since done some digging and found out that this footage is apparently taken from PS4, not PC. A journalist who has been present at Ubisoft previews of the game has confirmed this in a post on Neogaf.

He goes on to say that the PS4 version of the game is looking very good and the video below should give you further hope that the PC version of Watch Dogs is going to be well worth the wait.

Take a look for yourself and let us know your thoughts on it. Considering that this is now thought to be PS4 footage we are looking at, not PC – are you impressed now after initial worries?
