The lights are on
Watch Dogs is finally out in just a few days. After a late-stage delay to give the team more time to polish, Ubisoft has big hopes for the title. The publisher is expecting it to surpass the original Assassin’s Creed’s sales of 6.3 million.
The launch trailer doesn’t show us any new tricks, but it does drive home that hacking will have its applications on foot and in vehicles. It also reminds that Aiden isn’t a saint, as he’ll often resort to brutal measures to accomplish his tasks and exact revenge.
Watch Dogs is out on May 27 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. A Wii U version is coming later this year. For more, check out recent hands-on impressions and a breakdown of the multiplayer modes.

I've been craving an open world game for a while. Watch Dogs will keep me busy for a while.
Looks like I'll finally be getting my PS4. Can't wait to play this! I have high hopes for this as Ubisoft's newest IP.
I'm still on the fence about this game, and will probably wait until I at least read some reviews or get some hands on time with it. I'm not completely sold that there will be enough diversity to the hacking to keep it interesting for an entire single player campaign. Hope I'm wrong though.
I can't wait to play this Tuesday on my PS4.
So ready for this.
I was really hoping for GTA5 on PC, but since those butt heads havent said jack about when that is going to happen I guess Watchdogs will take its place. It actually looks a bit better than GTA. The multiplayer and mini games look great.
Can't wait to hack next week! :D
