Watch Dogs Release Date Confirmed, Trailer Features Vigilante JusticeBy: Sean Patterson - April 29, 2013
When Watch Dogs premiered at E3 last year, it quickly became one of the most talked-about new IPs at the conference. Its open-world Grand Theft Auto-style gameplay combined with the player ability to manipulate a city’s technological infrastructure and spy on passers-by excited everyone who is getting a bit tired of the Assassin’s Creed series.
Today, Ubisoft announced through a trailer that Watch Dogs will be released on November 19 (November 22 in Europe) for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Wii U. The trailer also teases a bit of the story behind the cool gameplay. Players will take on the role of Aiden Pearce, who has been wronged by the powers that be and vows to get revenge by using the city against them.
In addition to the trailer, Ubisoft also revealed several different special and collector’s edition versions of the game that will be available for pre-order in Europe.
The Dedsec Edition, seen below, comes with a figurine of Aiden, as well as an artbook, soundtrack, badges, AR cards, and a map. Dedsec also includes three downloadable single player missions, which Ubisoft claims will add an hour of game time. Other additions include the Vigilante Edition, the Uplay-exclusive Exclusive Edition, and the Game-exclusive Special Edition. The Vigilante Edition comes with a replica Aiden cap and mask, while the Exclusive and Special editions come with some of the digital content found in the Vigilante and Dedsec editions.
