The lights are on
During its first quarter earnings call, Ubisoft confirmed that Watch Dogs' companion app will not require that players own the game on consoles or PC. This is a shift in how companion apps have been handled in the past.
Now, anyone interested in the Watch Dogs experience just on a mobile device can do that without owning a full version of the title. This broadens the possibility for external influences on Aiden's adventure, both in support of players and as foils for the full game's players.

Our TakeThe appeal of the connected Watch Dogs experience and how it might influence the game just skyrocketed. I expect there might be a subset of players that gravitate to this experience before or instead of the retail version. There are a lot of games coming out this fall (not to mention the new consoles), and this will hook players into the Watch Dogs world without a huge investment.

This is gonna be really helpful for my friends so that we can both play even though we dont have the game
This is great news! I wonder when this will be available. On the games release or before?
That will do me just fine. I'm getting Watch Dogs for the PS4 but I won't buy one for probably a year after it comes out. So this will definitely help me not forget about it.
Is it available now?
People download the free or cheap app and eventually become interested in the game. It doubles as an advertisement.
Hopefully I'm not missing out on to much. Don't even own a cell phone, and I'm not going to buy one just to access stuff in this game.
I hope its better and less buggy than the GRFS app.
Yea just give me the console game.
Im going the oposite of this
I almost wish it was only on the retail copies so it would be that much more streamlined with the game.
Adds a great twist to the game. So now any random person who has the app can make your game a little bit harder or just throw you some unexpected curve balls. That is nothing, but good news. Should make things very exciting.
this website about Watch_Dogs seems to be nice http://thewatchdogs.eu/ demo , maps , news and cheats , System Requirements ,wymagania
Nice that they're doing this, but I'm getting the game for PS4 regardless.
