    [Megathread] Watch Dogs

    Available May 27, 2014 on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    *Update: new PC trailer*



    ___







    Set in Chicago, where a central network of computers connects everyone and everything, Watch_Dogs explores the impact of technology within our society. Using the city as your weapon, you will embark on a personal mission to inflict your own brand of justice.

    Chicago's overarching network is known as the Central Operating System (ctOS), and it controls almost all of the city's technology and information - including key data on all of the city's residents.

    You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you'll monitor and hack those around you by manipulating the ctOS from the palm of your hand. You'll access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy... and more.

    It was pushed back because of the developers asked for more time from their bosses, and they agreed.
    You should be happy. Too many game developers push a date, and if there is anything wrong with the game or missing content, they still release the game regardless because their bosses decides that happy shareholders are more important than happy players.

    welcome to the next gen (at least on PC).
    I'm sure it will be playable on a 4-core, just not with all the bell and whistle.

    kinda like Crysis was in its time.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was more due to the fact that Ubisoft doesn't bother spending much time optimizing their PC ports than the game actually being that demanding. Like, the specs for CoD, for example, were ludicrous given how the game actually looked due to Infinity Ward putting basically zero effort into optimization. Ubisoft is not known for their highly optimized PC ports.

    I think this is the reason as well.

    Pretty much this is the reason.

    Anyone who thinks a game that can be downgraded enough to run the 360/ps3 is next gen lulz...

    The MINIMUM requirements, not recommended but minimum requirements(aka everything low, no aa, 720p, and still struggling to maintain 30 fps) is a system 4 times stronger then the 360 or ps3.

    This is just Ubisoft being Ubisoft. There is nothing next gen about this game, it's a cross gen game with terrible optimization.

    It looks cool, but I'm not sure how convoluted the menu/option thing is. Watched the trailer and it looked like it had 8+ options? Awesome concept though.

    I'll still play it. Guess it truly was sarcasm when people were like lol graphics are not what makes a game good or bad. Now everyone is up in arms that a game doesn't look how it did when they first showed it. Of course it won't. But I'm sure we'll get it to that point on the PC, if not beyond. With an ENB this game could be very gorgeous if it's possible of course.

    I'm waiting for release, the ammount of bs ubisoft have managed to get on this game is amazing, if anything all my hype got killed by ubisoft being bad at promoting their game and optimizing their games.
    Cod has a new campaign, new weapons, new multiplayer levels every year. Zelda has been recycling the same weapons, villains, and dungeons since the 80's. Zelda recycles enough to make cod blush. The same weapons, villains, dungeons, and princess in every single Zelda for the most part. It's almost as cheesy as bowser vs Mario round 35

    Haha, 6 cores is overkill too. There is no way this game (or any game) optimizes 8 cares for their game. Barely any game optimizes quad cores ..

    I bet a Dual Core with great processing power runs this easily.

    I play a lot of games that don't have AAA graphics, I love indie games. The difference is they don't lie about it. Advertising incredible graphics and then changing it on release is false advertising, and they only reason companies get away with it is because people are still too stupid to not buy it. If everyone waited a week until after release to buy the game Ubisolt would absolutely shit their pants.

    The fact that you said "Of course it won't" angers me beyond comprehension. It's is the norm for companies to do this, not just in video games, but in pretty much everything. Anyone who buys into it is the demise of high quality production. why work hard and make an amazing game when people will buy a sub-par game if we advertise it as an amazing game? Grow a brain, please, for the good of the people.

    I have the FX-8350 8 core processor and I think the only game I've ever seen use more than 4 cores is Battlefield 3 and 4 which uses all 8 (BF3 might have only used 6, I don't remember exactly).

    I was planning on buying this game at a later date, but if they ask for an 8 core processor in the recommended settings and don't optimize it for an 8 core processor I will not be buying this gamer, ever.

    This looks fun!

    Btw what I've read about Chicago from news recently, the video seems to be a realistic view of everyday life in Chicago

    Watch Dogs was made on PC for PC first, then they ported it to consoles, it's officially said.
    They didn't do this previously tho, but with Watch Dogs they did.

    As long as my 2 year old computer can run the game, I will be happy. I don't need the graphics to be on ultra high.

    Prove it.

    The only time we have even seen Watch Dogs running on a pc was the 2012 E3 tech demo that was running on a $20,000 work station. Pretty far from a gaming PC.

    All we have seen otherwise is ps4 footage, so explain how the pc version won't be a port lol...
