35w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Kim Belair posted up a fresh Rules the City PS4 trailer video today on the upcoming PS3 and PlayStation 4 title Watch_Dogs with details below.

To quote: Last time, I was pumped to share the Honored Trailer for Watch_Dogs, and now I'm here with some new gameplay footage that'll give you the rundown on how to operate in the world of the game.

As you may know, Watch_Dogs' interpretation of Chicago is a web of technological connections, all overseen and managed by ctOS, a piece of centralized software designed to watch over the city and keep it running smoothly.

ctOS controls everything from emergency response to the network of indoor and outdoor security cameras dotting the urban landscape. In the hands of a skilled hacker and strategist like Aiden Pearce, ctOS means nearly unlimited power. And in your hands, it means incredibly fun and engaging open-world gameplay.

So check out the Watch_Dogs Hacking featurette.





Whether you're looking for a tactical advantage in stealth and strategy or just a bit of gossip mongering through strangers' private texts and scandalous emails, hacking into ctOS gives you total access, and it's an amazing feeling to play...

37w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Kim Belair invites PS4 fans to watch the new Watch_Dogs PlayStation 4 video trailer below just released today!

To quote: Hey guys! I'm Kim Belair and I've just joined the Watch_Dogs team as a ComDev.

I'll be working with Nik Schmidt to bring you new Watch_Dogs info and content as we lead up to the game's launch. I'm excited to be here, and extra excited to share a new trailer.

As you've probably noticed, the buzz around Watch_Dogs has been awesome, and we've gotten some great responses from the press.

In fact, we recently received more than 90 awards and nominations at this year's E3. This trailer showcases a few of the amazing things people have said, paired with gameplay footage – some of it brand new.

The reactions and the accolades we receive help to inspire us; we couldn't be more psyched to be working on something that gets people talking, that excites them, that draws them into a totally new world. And the world of Watch_Dogs is going to be big.





We can't wait to share it with you on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Video: Watch_Dogs E3 2013 Walkthough PlayStation 4 / PS4 Demo

44w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt posted up a fresh Watch_Dogs PlayStation 4 walkthrough demo video from E3 2013 today for PS4 fans below!

To quote: In this most recent Watch_Dogs gameplay demo, we witnessed the wide variety of tools that Aiden has in his arsenal, all expressed through gameplay.

Whether it be by driving in a stealthily way to try and evade assailants, by assisting a friend in escaping a sticky situation, or by blacking out parts of the city to give him tactical advantage, we were able to see all the agency we'll have while exploring the great city of Chicago.

Now, we've seen how Aiden lends a helping hand to a friend, but who's helping him? Who's helping you, the player, when the odds seemed to have been tipped against you? That's where it becomes interesting.

There's yet another layer of connectivity that will be available to you in Watch_Dogs: Co-op on mobile devices. When you're calling for help, you are sending a request to friends who are connected to the Watch_Dogs universe through their mobile devices.

When that request is accepted, a co-op experience starts and the goal for the two players is to survive from the police by escaping their pursuit. This is just another way Watch_Dogs brings you the full, hyper-connected experience.
 

Video: Watch_Dogs: Behind the Scenes with 2013's PS4 Action Epic

48w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton is here with a video showcasing Watch_Dogs which goes behind the scenes with 2013's rule-breaking action epic below.

To quote: As with any jump from one console generation to the next, PlayStation 4 owners will expect to see hardware that sits at the very cutting edge of innovation, offering unparalleled processing power and an arsenal of exciting new features.

However, the onus on game developers to bring bold new gameplay innovation to the table is every bit as integral to that generational leap, and it's a responsibility that the whipsmart team behind Ubisoft's future-tech open world action title Watch_Dogs are really tearing into.

As detailed in our coverage last week, the game's core conceit - that its central hero, hacker Aiden Pearce's primary weapon is not a gun, but an entire city - is one of the boldest, most ambitious ideas to come along in some time. To find out more about the game's attempts to re-write the action rulebook, PlayStation Blog sat down with the game's creative director Jonathan Morin...

What was the first seed of the idea that later grew into Watch_Dogs?

Jonathan Morin: It started as a conversation. Four years ago we were talking about humans exchanging their lives and their...
 

Watch_Dogs for PS4 and PS3: Details on the Future-Tech Action Epic

49w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared details today on Watch_Dogs for PS4 and PS3 detailing the the future-tech action epic below.

To quote: Watch_Dogs's dark vision of technological totalitarianism is heading to PS3 and PS4, and we were lucky enough to see the first live gameplay demo in San Francisco earlier this week (played on a DualShock 4, no less!). We've carefully studied the footage, asked pressing questions, and present you with this breakdown.

1. Aiden Pierce isn't your typical videogame protagonist

"Aiden is a man with a dark past who has made questionable choices," Lead Story Designer Kevin Shortt explained in our first live gameplay demo.Growing up in Chicago, Aiden used his technical prowess to infiltrate bank accounts and access surveillance systems, becoming something of a vigilante. Naturally, these pursuits earned him some powerful enemies on both sides of the law.

As you play Watch_Dogs, you won't be choosing between stark extremes on some binary morality scale, but defining where Aiden resides on much murkier spectrum of acceptability.

2. Chicago isn't your typical videogame city

We've all played open-world action games where cities feel more like a collection of giant painted boxes than a...
