Watch Dogs 2

Ubisoft announced Watch Dogs will release on May 27.

The game will be available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. As previously announced, the Wii U version is still delayed after the official launch. No announcement was made as to when that version will release. A story trailer coinciding with the announcement was released as well.

Watch Dogs quickly became popular after being revealed at E3 2012. In October of 2013, Ubisoft delayed the release of the game to spring 2014. The news came at a shock to the industry because it arrived a month before the game’s original Nov. 19 release date. Watch Dogs was set to be a launch title for both the PS4 and Xbox One. The delay aimed to give the development team more time to fully realize their vision of a next gen experience.

[adsense250itp]In Watch Dogs, players take on the role of vigilante Aiden Pearce. Aiden is a skilled hacker who uses his smartphone to take control of Chicago. By hacking into surveillance cameras, ATMs, computers and more, players will explore the depths of Ubisoft’s vision of Chicago. Shutting down lights in a city block allows the player to evade cops and enemies. Hacking into computers allows crucial information to be gathered and stolen.

Aiden’s story begins when he stumbles upon a dark, criminal underworld he was never meant to see. The routine job cost him the life of his infant daughter. Now out for revenge, Aiden will employ the help of seductive Clara and eccentric T-Bone to get what he needs. Together they will face off with crime lords, human traffickers and fellow hackers.

Our Take

The long drought of information about Watch Dogs was becoming worrying. Thankfully, players now have a release date and new story details to mull over. Though May 27 isn’t Nov. 19, delaying a game usually doesn’t result in a worse release–see GTA 5 and Rayman Legends. Ubisoft says more details are on the way. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
