How Watch Dogs' multiplayer liberates Ubisoft's open world

Open Watch Dog's world map and what will you find? I see a city divided into districts, around half a dozen in number. Each has a central control point to capture, to unlock a surrounding sea of icons - side-missions, mini-games, collectibles. So it is in Assassin's Creed, so it is in Far Cry and so it is in Watch Dogs too. (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Good article.
Seems the game has a decent amount of variety and it looks good. Which makes sense to people who watched more than just one compressed gif.

Really good read. I hope it lives up to it's potential. The online component sounds like it could be a ton of fun.

hopefully they incentivize the single player with unlocks and skill trees that can be taken online.

?? -- Seems strange if this is the PS4 game-play - Graphics look downgraded.

@ Shadonic

I'm not being a fanboy I was just saying it does not look as good as the play-though they showed before.. Which seems strange because the one they showed before was running on a PS4..?

Look at it for yourself - https://www.youtube.com/wat...

That's why I said that seems strange, why would you downgrade if you already had it running and looking like the link I posted above...

Look at the trees and grass in the link I posted, then come back and look at this new video in the article... --> They are both playing on PS4 -so I don't understand the fanboy comment-

but look at the difference.. The only thing I can think is that at that detail it ran to hot or was causing problems so they toned it back..

It's disappointing because now it just looks ok, before it was looking like a true nex gen amazing looking game..

If that's the PS4 version, you PS3 guys are in trouble because this thing is going to look like crap.. Unless maybe that is the PS3 version in the video, then I can understand, and if so that looks really good. -and then the PS4 still looks like the demo they showed (see the link i posted above)

If that's the case then this makes sense, and all is fine. (but I'm just not sure why they are so different)

It was never downgraded. People were comparing PS4 gameplay to PC gameplay and obviously it's inferior.

it looks true next gen too me, I may be new to 3D modeling and stuff and creating textures but it all looks good to me. Gamers nowadays have some sort of Gamer Ricky bobby mentality where if its not the best of the best like graphics so amazing that you confuse real life and reality then its a crap game or it looks like crap nowadays and honestly this whole graphics debate is just getting annoying. I could kind of understand watch dogs because in the trailer it honestly did look like something that GTA 5 had far surpassed graphically. If the graphics being downgraded that bad are that important too you then please give me your copy and wait for the infamous movie or something since visuals are all that matter.
