Watch and learn: Ubisoft on bringing Watch Dogs to GTA's turf

CVG:Few games are as high on next-gen wishlists as Watch Dogs. Ever since Ubisoft's open-world hack 'em up made its debut at E3 2012, fans have been guzzling down every last pint of information that's been served by the publisher's Montreal studio. (Culture, Jonathan Morin, Watch Dogs)

Many have tried and many have failed. Saints Row had to go the ultra - stupid route because they couldn't compete, Sleeping Dogs was great but only really had a good combat system going for it, Just Cause 2 was fun but lacked any detail in the world. I doubt i will see the same attention to detail in any videogame until the next GTA is released for next gen consoles.

I love the look of Watchdogs im getting it day one but i think it is a different type of free roam to GTA, a little more serious and more "focused" than GTA.

GTA1,GTA3,GTA: Vice City, GTA: San Andreas and GTA5 just can't be beaten in my opinion. Sandbox kings.

Except you left out GTA4 which was crap and how SR3 is better than it. So they have been beaten. It's just a matter of time for the next big thing arrives and that might just be Watch Dogs.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   344d ago
I left it out on purpose......i was picking the most loved/iconic games in the series and seeing as 4 isn't one of them so i didn't list it. I also left out GTA:London, China Town Wars, GTA 2. Duh.

And i almost fully achieved Saints Row 3 on the 360 before you call me biased.

"It's just a matter of time for the next big thing arrives and that might just be Watch Dogs."

I really don't think so. The next best thing when it comes to sandbox will be GTA6.

Well SR2 was better than both SR3 and GTA IV

GTA is a jack of all trades game. You can do ANYTHING... but nothing by itself is really amazing. I'm excited for WD because it looks more grounded and focused. May not do 1/6 of what GTA does, but what it does do, might be better. Hopefully

Good luck Ubisoft ROFL

I'm sure Watch Dogs will be great, but I am sure Watch Dogs will be more of an 'open world' game rather then a sandbox game.

It will be more of an open-world with more focus on a certain aspect, rather then GTA V's sandbox aspect of 'do anything', so you are already headed in the wrong direction Ubisoft, on bringing Watch Dogs 'to GTA's turf'

GTA is sandbox...until you do actual missions. Then it can be just as linear as any other action game. Go here, get this car, take it here, walk over here.......etc.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   344d ago
Yeah, because stealing a military jumbo jet by flying a crop duster into the back of it and then taking over the jumbo jet and having f15's chase you and shoot you down and then skydiving out of the back in a jeep is linear as hell
