Watch Dogs vs GTA V graphics after launch

How are you finding Watch Dogs so far after having a chance to play the game for a short while since launch? The game is available on multiple platforms, but so far we can see that there has been a big debate on Watch Dogs Vs GTA V graphics as a main discussion point.

Watch Dogs looks impressive on PC as expected, while the game is also very pretty on Xbox One and PS4. Gamers have been digging deeper into how good Watch Dogs looks on their platform though, by specifically comparing it to the graphics featured in GTA V – a PS3 and Xbox 360.

GTA V is a great looking game and could be something special indeed once GTA V for PC, PS4 and Xbox One arrives. So far it looks like there has been divided opinion on the graphics quality of Ubisoft’s latest title.

Personally, we think the game looks good. It isn’t cutting edge ‘next-gen’ graphics as some may have expected perhaps after watching the Watch Dogs 2012 tech demo, but it’s certainly a game that doesn’t look bad on next-gen hardware.

PC gamers will be able to get the most out of Watch Dogs graphics potential of course by tweaking, but those on PS4 and Xbox One should be satisfied too with such an open world scale.

Were Watch Dogs graphics overhyped too much on social media to the point where Ubisoft wouldn’t have been able to please everyone? We’ve seen some gamers say that Watch Dogs doesn’t even look as good as GTA IV on PC, we’ve included a video of this below for further examination.

Other gamers have commented on the general feel of the game and the general consensus seems to be that Ubisoft have delivered a very solid game on all fronts.

If you have been playing through Watch Dogs, let us know your thoughts so far. Are you happy with the graphics quality on your platform version, or were you expecting the game to look a little better than the final result?
