UPDATE: Ubisoft has moved the release date for Watch Dogs to May 27, 2014.
Joseph Bernstein of Buzzfeed ended up getting some playtime in with the PS4 version. Check out some of his impressions below:
I saw the game demonstrated yesterday, on a high-end PC that was “very close to the specs of a PlayStation 4″, according to the coy demonstrator. And for better or worse, I can report that this game is not, as I admit I expected, Grand Theft Auto with a patina of technophilia/phobia/what-have-you. This is a game that is steeped in the logic and implications of a networked society. In part of the demonstration that we saw, your objective is literally to gain access to a heavily-fortified municipal server room, so you can hack it to gain access to the smart phones of the locals. How you can do this: by shooting. How you can also do this: by taking remote access of the server’s various “smart” electronics (gates, elevators, cameras) to distract, confuse, and surveillance security.
At the moment, Watch Dogs is set to debut on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. This next-gen game is sure to make an appearance on the PS4 and the next Xbox. For even more info on this open world/tech heavy adventure, shoot on over to the Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ profile pages.
