Watch Dogs Collector’s Edition Announced, Priced
Ubisoft today announced a “Limited Edtion” bundle for its upcoming title Watch Dogs. The pack will be available for $130 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 consoles. Since the game will launch alongside the new Sony and Microsoft consoles (which don’t yet have launch dates), the release date for Watch Dogs on those consoles is still a nebulous “Holiday 2013.” For current consoles and PC, the game will hit stores on November 19.
The Limited Edition of Watch Dogs comes with several goodies, but not quite as many as Europeans are getting in the “Dedsec Edition” announced back in April. The Limited Edition includes a steelbook case, soundtrack, art book, and a 9″ figurine of Watch Dogs protagonist Aiden Pearce, just like the Dedsec Edition. Instead of the map, badges, augmented reality cards, and bonus single player missions of the Dedsec Edition, however, customers in North America will be getting a replica “vigilante mask” like the one worn by Pearce in the game.
Watch Dogs is expected to be one of the better next-generation launch titles. The game takes place in a near-future Chicago which players will explore Grand Theft Auto-style, with the twist that many of the city’s electronic devices are accessible and hackable. The game also features Dark Souls-style invasion multiplayer mechanic that was recently previewed:
