I can’t tell you how disappointed I was when the news broke that Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was cancelled as a launch title for the PS4 and the Xbox One. It was a game that I was really looking forward to and I just couldn’t wait to pop it into my shiny new system and get lost in the word of digital espionage. News has just gone out that our wait, fair gamers, is almost over.
Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs will be available worldwide on May 27, 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Those that were holding out for the Wii U version will have to wait just a little bit longer. Just how much longer is unclear as a launch date for the Wii U version has yet to be announced.
As has been highly publicized in the past, players assume the role of a new type of hero, Aiden Pearce, as he uses his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) with nothing more than his trusty smartphone to control every element of the city from stop lights and ATM machines to tapping into the police computer files and citizens background records.
I don’t know about you, but I think that this game is really going to show just what can be accomplished on the next-gen systems in regards to gameplay and graphics.
