Watch Dogs looks like one of the most promising games due out this year. Cyril quite enjoyed the first gameplay trailer, which was released this summer and showcased some of the game's environments and character interactions in addition to hacking and combat mechanics. This morning, fresh gameplay footage caught my eye—this time with a slow-motion-infused parkour sequence.
The chase reminds me a little of Sleeping Dogs, minus the kung fu. Thankfully, the main character's takedown is still sufficiently violent. Hacking environmental elements into the action looks like a unique gameplay twist, and I'm a sucker for anything with bullet-time effects.
Due out this fall, Watch Dogs is coming to the PC, Sony's recently announced PlayStation 4, and current-generation consoles. I hope the focus has been on exploiting the more potent hardware available in those first two platforms. The densely populated environments shown off in the gameplay trailers could surely make good use of extra graphics power and high-resolution textures. Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the tip.
