A new trailer has surfaced for Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, showing off a new section of gameplay, reportedly from a recent demo build shown to press. Polygon appears to be the only publication airing the clip in an official capacity, accompanying a new preview article describing some new features and player capabilities.
In a recent demo of the game shown at a preview event in San Francisco, Guay and members of the Watch Dogs development team highlighted three areas that they believe players will find engaging. The first is voyeurism, which features heavily in the game. According to Guay, the theme of surveillance is particularly interesting to explore, especially when we consider the increasing number of security cameras that are being installed in cities and how everything — from traffic lights to power networks — is now connected and managed by computers.
"The question we asked ourselves was, 'What if we had control over all these things? What could we do with it? What are the flaws of having such a connected system? How could it be used?'" Guay said. "We're giving that control to the player and we're letting them answer it for themselves."
Polygon's video player doesn't seem to be very embed-friendly, but GamesHQMedia has it on Youtube now, so unless it gets taken down, you can watch it below.
Watch Dogs is due on November 21 2013 on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U, with the PlayStation 4 version expected to launch with the new console (which has yet to be dated for Australia).
