Watch Dogs - Did Aiden Pierce get a new face? Comparison images

After the recent release date reveal in the Story trailer, it appears lead protagonist for Watch Dogs Aiden Pierce has had a subtle face change. Is this for the better? (PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Looks a bit like Seamus Dever from Castle.

Old Aiden: Timothy Hutton

New Aiden: Dylan McDermott

Not at all. Aiden looks American. Edward Kenway didn't.

OT: I have no problems with either face. Both character models seem to be much better than anything in the Assassin's Creed series.
1nsomniac  +   487d ago
? How exactly did Edward Kenway not look American?

What do you think he looked? He certainly didnt look West Indian/Caribbean!

@lonewolfjedi your right I hadnt noticed it before but yes it just looks like they've removed the facial hair & recycled the skin.

Edward Kenway was Welsh and if you thought about the time frame of ac4 its quite obvious hes not going to be American...

I haven't followed WD but I always assumed Aiden was Irish from his name and his look reminded me of the guy from saboteur!

elsuperamigo  +   486d ago
USA have so.many mixtures of races i wont know how one will looks like! when i imagine a USA person (america is the whole continent so if.you refer to american i guess u.mean that) i.always think of a hillbilly lol

Seen information somewhere that said belfast so N.Ireland unless they changed that too.
DOMination-  +   486d ago
Just looked it up - as mentioned above he is from Belfast.


Like I said, always assumed he was Irish.. his name is a dead giveaway!
GraveLord  +   486d ago
Don't know why I got so many disagrees.

Edward Kenway is clearly European.

He looks like this guy http://upload.wikimedia.org...

Looks like John Reese in my opinion


This game is basically Person of Interest, I mean the similarities are too much.
thunderbear  +   486d ago
He looks really average now whereas last year he looked really interesting. I'm really bummed out by Watch Dog's re-reveal and I hope it isn't as bad as it appears to be.
hollabox  +   486d ago
He looks more like Alan Wake
mochachino  +   487d ago
His face is better now, looks more cold blooded.

The lighting, physics, weather effects on the other hand are absolute shite. The games graphics took a nose dive and the city looks lifeless and static.

I'd rather they lower the resolution and bring it back to E32012 quality.
LoneWolf019  +   487d ago
We all wish that :( here's hoping that last trailer was just last gen
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   487d ago
It might even have a hand in preventing framerate drops if there's less resolution for the systems to worry about.
EXVirtual  +   487d ago
I don't even think they'd have to lower the resolution if they tried a bit harder than normal.
I think that the reason that they downgraded it was because of the fact that it's cross gen.
Look at infamous: Second Son. Awesome graphics, particle effects and native 1080p.
With a bit of effort Watch Dogs E32012 is very doable. Maybe less particle effects and stuff, but you know what I mean.
Audiggity  +   487d ago
He probably just got some botox to prepare for the release date.
mcarsehat  +   487d ago
Its probably for a realistic film comparison.
MisterFantastic  +   487d ago
Why must people always make an AC comparison to Watch Dogs? Anways, I lost faith in Ubisoft now -_- always make empty promise....like my girlfriend
Minipandaninja  +   486d ago
because:same engine, different place and time but the map, the running, the menu and the inventory look similar
ion53  +   486d ago
WD and AC run on two different engines... AC runs on Anvil Next. WD runs on Disrupt
Minipandaninja  +   484d ago
Changing the name from anvil Next to Disrupt doesnt make it really different and it doesnt look different. They were probably affraid people would talk about it and say it was to much like AC and that's probably why they made a tweet to say it wasnt running on the same engine
KwietStorm  +   487d ago
Amongst all the graphical downgrade talk, his face, and I think even his voice, were the first things that stood out to me.
Ashby_JC  +   487d ago
It does look like they made some minor to major changes. His eyes look less slanted. And his face is shaped different.

The way the main character looks can alter sales. At least for woman I have witnessed woman NOT watch a tv show because as they said...the men are ugly on the show. SMH
e-p-ayeaH  +   486d ago
I think youre talking about teen girls not woman.
Ashby_JC  +   486d ago
Actually the one I can remember was specifically talking about True Blood. I was like do you watch and she was like nooo the menz are ugly!!

I was like but its a good show lol. Funny thing is she watches it now.
markyboy2181  +   487d ago
theyve alreaDY said that story trailer was cross platform!!
GentlemenRUs  +   486d ago
There was hope for this game... Not anymore :(
Saithraphim  +   486d ago
lets not get too carried away now...
MxRBrobaFett  +   486d ago
He looks like a truck hauling ugly sticks ran directly into his face
SolidGear3  +   486d ago
porkChop  +   486d ago
I like the old Aiden MUCH better.
e-p-ayeaH  +   486d ago
The olg generic tom cruise esque face doesnt help giving the character a more realistic look,but then again videogame characters arent supposed to look realistic i guess.

He looks about 7-10yrs younger now. not a big deal.
CharlesSwann  +   486d ago
Forget the face, his gravely voice is too much. That was tiring back with Metal gear 4. And now it's just obnoxious.
e-p-ayeaH  +   486d ago
Most action games have characters with gravely voices, Joel from TLoU and Booker in Bioshock Infinite are some of them.

Snake in MGS4 actually felt like an original voice over rather the usual man voice you hear in games.

He looks soft like baby doodoo now.

I guess Aiden hacked his own face.
