Watch Dogs creator Ubisoft has today revealed a lengthy nine minute video aimed at giving potential players a bit of a head start in the digital world of Chicago when it comes to hacking.
The video takes a peak into the hacking of protagonists Aiden Pearce, and just how you'll go about interacting with the world to make it do what you want, when you want. This includes using certain city functions to your advantage when on the chase by police, or simply topping up your bank account with the help of a friendly and unaware citizen. All of that and more can be found in the video below.
Ubisoft isn't stopping there with Watch Dog news, revealing a rather large and descriptive blog today about everything you'll be able to do come May 27th. Alongside what you can do in the virtual world, Watch Dogs creative chief Jonathan Morin has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 version will run at 900p, while the Xbox One version will run at a rather odd resolution of 792p. Both however will output at 30 frames per second.
"Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number. All those numbers are valid aspects of making games," he said.
"But you make choices about the experience you want to deliver. In our case, dynamism is everything. Exploration and expression are everything. You want to have a steady framerate, but you want to have dynamism at the core of the experience. The same goes with resolution."
Watch Dogs will be available on May 27th for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. A Wii U version will be available later this year.
