After watching the latest round of Watch_Dogs footage, I will continue not to purchase Ubisoft open world games.
It’s just so familiar. I can’t help but feel like it’s the same Ubisoft open world formula with a fresh coat of paint a handful of new tricks. The “Hacking” doesn’t appear to be nothing more than long range context prompts. There’s a lot of things to interact with but it doesn’t look particularly thrilling to me.
The multiplayer looks more interesting to me. The invasion idea sounds like it could be really neat. I just wonder how long the novelty will last before everyone picks out the “hacker” within 10 seconds of an invasion.
Watch_Dogs debuts on May 27th on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
