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
