Ubisoft and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Announce Watch Dogs Exclusive Gameplay Content for PS4 and PS3 Owners

Today, Ubisoft and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced that Watch Dogs, the highly anticipated open world action adventure title, will offer additional content only available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

The exclusive content includes four extra missions, representing one hour of exclusive gameplay, as well as a unique ‘White Hat’ Hacker Outfit. By playing this additional content, players will have a deeper knowledge of DedSec, a key and powerful faction in the Watch Dogs universe. Once complete, a Hacking Boost named Superior Capacity is acquired which gives players one additional Battery Slot.

The scenario takes place after Aiden Pearce, the vigilante hero of Watch Dogs, catches the eye of DedSec, a notorious hacker group fighting for freedom and security in the digital age. Aiden receives an encoded message asking him to help some members of this organization who want payback. Pearce must use his knowledge of Chicago’s complex ctOS network to discover digital vulnerabilities in Umeni Technologies’ security network and earn his reward.

We are pleased to also announce that Watch Dogs bundles for both PS4 and PS3 will be available for launch in Europe, which include all of the Sony exclusive content.

Watch Dogs will be released worldwide on May 27, 2014 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox One, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Windows PC. The Wii U version will release at a later date.

Creative Director claims Watch Dogs will take average player “35-40” hours to complete
Jonathan Morin - creative director on the upcoming Watch Dogs - has been a busy man as of late. Not content with an interview earlier in the week about the density of the game, he’s now taken to Twitter to answer a few fan questions about Aiden’s upcoming adventures.
Asked about the games’ length, Morin stated that an average player, doing plenty of the open-world stuff that Watch Dogs has touted for a while, can expect the game to last somewhere between 35-40 hours of playtime. Completionists who want to see everything, however, will be looking at a time closer to a hundred hours.

@vytla102 I would say the average player which does free roam a bit tend to reach the end within 35-40h. But doing everything is close 100h.

Watch Dogs PS4 does 1080p/30FPS, Xbox One at 960p
Ubisoft have revealed during their Watch Dogs press conference that the game will run on the following resolutions and framerate for next gen systems:

PS4: 1080p/30fps
Xbox One: 960p/30fps
PC: up to 4K/framerate varies
Needless to say the PC version will be the ultimate version as Ubisoft partnered with Nvidia to take advantage of cool features such as ambient occlusion. Of course when it comes to PC the framerate will depend a lot on GPU though chances are if the game is running on a GTX you should be able to get 60 fps on 1080p.

Ubisoft Reveals Watch Dogs Release Date

Today, Ubisoft revealed that its highly anticipated open world action-adventure game, Watch Dogs, will be released worldwide on May 27, 2014.

In Watch Dogs, players assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante hero who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) to control almost every element of the city.

“We are pleased to be able to reveal to gamers all over the world the new release date for Watch Dogs™,” said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Ubisoft. “We are extremely confident that the additional time we afforded the dev team to refine and polish the game will be more than worth the wait.”

Players who purchase Watch Dogs on either PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will have exclusive access to 60 minutes of additional gameplay via the PlayStation Network.

“We’re really excited for the launch of Watch Dogs on both PS3 and PS4 and are confident that it will prove to be one of the standout games of 2014,” said Michael Pattison, Vice President, Third Party Relations, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. “It’s a unique and visionary game and we believe that the exclusive content available via PSN will not only excite gamers, but showcase how PlayStation is a preferred destination for Watch Dogs.”

Watch Dogs will be available on Sony PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Microsoft Xbox One the all-in-one games and entertainment system, Microsoft Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system and Windows PC. The Wii U version will release at a later date.

Watch_Dogs Gets ‘M’ Rating From the ESRB, 'Big week' for Watch Dogs, product manager teases
Content Descriptors: Blood, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol
Other:

Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) 

Rating Summary: This is third-person shooter/action game in which players assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a hacker trying to find an evil mastermind. Players use pistols, machine guns, assault rifles, and explosives to kill various human enemies (e.g., criminals, police officers). When close to an enemy, players are able to shoot them in the head or knock them out with a black jack. Players have the ability to kill captives after (mostly) off-screen interrogations. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence (e.g., a man stabbed in the neck and shot multiple times). Combat is highlighted by cries of pain, blood-splatter effects, and realistic gunfire. During the course of the game, female characters sometimes appear topless. One scene depicts women auctioned off to a room full of male buyers; in another scene, sexual moaning sounds can be heard behind walls. The central character is sometimes depicted drinking alcohol; after each shot, players are prompted to steady Aiden’s blurred vision/balance. In a few instances, characters are described as “addicted to narcotics” or “convicted of drug trafficking.” The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue

"Morning #watchdogs crew!" he tweeted. “#ubicoffee #bigweek #toocoldinmtl”.

Ubisoft is believed to be gearing up to announce Watch Dogs’ release date after images posted on PlayStation.com stated that “Watch Dogs is on its way… Find out the release date in this new trailer.”
The title was also temporarily bumped to the front of retailer GAME’s homepage carousel around the same time that multiple images of the game were uploaded to Ubisoft’s official UbiBlog, suggesting news could be on its way.

Watch Dogs engine originally built for a racing game
Watch Dogs began life as a very different game. When the team was formed years ago, the goal was to create a driving game. "They were working on a driving engine, working on something. We had the Driver license. This was years ago," Ubisoft North America President Laurent Detoc told IGN. “Then we were thinking, ‘no, this is not the way we want to go with a driving game,’ so we canceled that and restarted. It’s not like Watch Dogs started as Watch Dogs. The Watch Dogs project was initially another game.”
