[Exclusive] Early Watch Dogs Multiplayer Gameplay Footage and Impressions
We exclusively leaked the first review of Watch Dogs a few days ago and took massive amounts of heat for it. Fake allegations aside even Ubisoft had the audacity to claim that "real" reviews would come on 27th. Yet a review published in a print magazine just yesterday was dubbed as the first real review, which made the criteria for real plainly obvious: Any review that gives Watch Dogs a perfect score is a real review. Well here is some more 'fake' exclusive material just for your viewing pleasure. Oh and this time we made sure to include features the comments had requested and which we had mentioned but not shown in our original review.
Watch Dogs is clearly the only game right now that is reigning supreme over the entire gaming industry. The brand new open world action-adventure video game title is making headlines since Ubisoft first released it's gameplay footage, but now with the launch date only a week away, the hype for this game is getting more intense than before. Luckily, We got our hands on a legit Xbox One retail copy of the game a few days ago, and actually got a taste of multiplayer gameplay. That said, considering the fact how we got absolutely lambasted for simply giving our own take on the game's graphics and gameplay, heres your chance to decide for yourself what the gameplay, graphics and mechanics of the same are like. Do note: we do not know who else was playing with us or why the servers were up - but it seems some devs and normal users were playing the game before Ubisoft realized this and took the servers down. In this footage we play with two devs and a normal user. We blocked their names for privacy reasons. Before this, we played Decryption mode with other people who had the retail copy as well.
WCCF Exclusive: Early Watch Dogs Multiplayer Gameplay Footage
While the story of Watch Dogs is one that tells us about the modern situation of surveillance and monitoring gotten out of hand we witness one man's quest to utilize a centralized network of various surveillance tools to exact revenge on the people who took his loved ones away from him using a variety of opportunities spread out across the city. All of this taking place in the beautiful city of Chicago, all the buildings and visuals have been built to scale from real life to actually give the players a realistic feeling about the game and actually feel familiar to their environment, especially the inhabitants of the city.
The multiplayer is one area of the game that is really fascinating, where Grand Theft Auto 5 has practically built a second life for it's players with a theme of fun with friends, by allowing players to go drive around the city and indulge in various activities, Watch Dogs is a game that demands absolute sincerity from the players, we are looking at a game that will have Spy vs Spy at each others throats for Data and the acquisition of it.
While the multiplayer scenarios in Watch Dogs might not hold the same comic appeal that its counter part does on consoles, it does what its supposed to for the people it is meant to reach. There are many people who are heavily vested in the world of Watch Dogs due to the interesting theme and nature presented in the story and the audience wishing to pursue this will gladly indulge themselves in this adventure among themselves and with friends wholeheartedly. While the Xbox One version is running on 792p and a fixed 30FPS, it does appear to be less visually stunning than what the PS4 variant looks like, the only way we can find out why this is so is to wait for third parties to dissect the various platforms and determine which version of the game had undergone the most nip/tuck in order to deliver a perfect balance of looks and performance.
The multiplayer seems to be interesting enough to keep the players hooked for some time but Ubisoft has definitely got plans to expand on the multiplayer since the Season Pass has been long announced, you can be rest assured that new maps, game modes and other treats await you if you are patient. Even if you eventually get tired of the game, you should still wait and see what Ubisoft has in store for post launch content and give it a shot.
