Combat And Pockets Featured In New Motion Capture Video

It's easy to forget that much of the athleticism we see in games is rooted in human performance. Many titles emphasize showy combat that wouldn't often be seen in a real fight. Watch Dogs is going in another direction.

In a video posted on Ubisoft's new blog, we get a short look at the actor behind Watch Dogs protagonist Aiden Pearce. The combat is direct and brutal. There's no glitz, as it's all about taking down opponents as quickly and efficiently as possible.

It's also interesting to learn about the challenges the team faced when figuring out how to make Aiden's hands-in-pocket casual walk fit within the constraints of motion capture. If you're interested in more Watch Dogs, we recently had the chance to preview the title and talk with members of the team.

Watch Dogs will be out on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on November 19, 2013. Releases are also planned for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

  • "...every move that he makes is about trying to take someone out. There's no move that's just for show. Everything is just raw and fast and violent."

    "...a character we try to show is both intelligent and extremely violent..."

    "...uses things like his tactical baton, or just the way he sneaks around and stealth and hacking. He uses all of these components to sort of outsmart his enemies."

    Did you... is he... is he Batman?
  • is the thing they use basicly a giant kinect or what?
