Ubisoft has just released three new in-game shots of Watch Dogs' Aiden Pearce, the hacking action game once on track for launch this year but was delayed into 2014 for 'more polish' with its developer.
These are actually pack shots for Xbox One but closely represent what PC gamers will be enjoying, like crane dropping, pipe 'sploding and cracking bad guys on the noggin.
Ubisoft's Laurent Detoc recently defended their decision to push Watch Dogs into next calendar year, saying it was a hard choice but ultimately right for the game and fans.
"Part of the decision to delay Watch Dogs is also that. We know it’s not where we want it to be. Can it get there? What will it take to get there? That’s why it takes a longer process. But in August we really thought we were going to have that game at launch,” Detoc .
"I actually believe that Watch Dogs could have ended up being the best-rated game on next gen if it came out at launch. We wanted it to be even higher,” he told IGN. “The whole package is there already. But without sending them too many flowers, the guys at Rockstar have showed us again that if you make a 96-percent game, people will come."
"Watch Dogs, I can only hope we get to that level. There’s an attachment to the brand, in the case of GTA, that makes people really want to give it that 100-percent review. We’ll be missing that on Watch Dogs until we go further, potentially. That’s what we’re after.”
Watch Dogs releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4 in early 2014.
