Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs will be released on May 27, 2014, but that's not all. Ubisoft and Sony are partnering to bundle the game with a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 video game system in Europe. Such a move should surely give more boost to the PlayStation 4's continuous momentum, further widening the gap between the Sony console and the Xbox One.
"We are also pleased to announce that exclusive Watch Dogs bundles for both PS4 and PS3 will also be available for launch on 27th May. And remember, you get an additional 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay on PS3 and PS4 only available on PlayStation," says Sony's EU blog.
At the moment though, Sony did not specify the cost of the bundle, but it might very well be cheaper than the cost of purchasing an Xbox One, along with a copy of Watch Dogs.
When Watch Dogs goes on sale on May 27, the game will be available for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. For some strange reason, the Wii U version is still in limbo and has not yet been given a release date.
Along with the release date announcement, Ubisoft gave gamers a taste with a new trailer of the game. From what we can tell, there seem to be an interesting story at hand, along with an equally interesting cast. Then again, it's just a trailer, which is designed to get gamers excited. The full game itself might be a dull experience, or the experience the trailer is depicting.
Watch Dogs is a game that should have been launched since 2013, but it was delayed. The holiday sales were a missed opportunity for Ubisoft, but with the PlayStation 4 going over the six million units sold mark, launching in May might not be a bad thing.
Watch Dogs is a game centered around the story of a skilled hacker who is known as Aiden Pearce. It is not certain why Pearce is doing what he does, but there seems to be a good reason behind it. Furthermore, the game is set in Chicago, a place that is linked deeply with a supercomputer network.
