Watch Dogs Dated, Trailered and Collector's Editions Detailed

Ubisoft have announced that Watch Dogs will release for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC this winter on November 22nd. The game will also be available at launch for the PS4, and "is also planned for other next generation consoles".

Ubisoft have lifted the lid on a whole bunch of special collector's editions for Watch Dogs, and busted out a fat gameplay trailer that you can check out after the jump.

Behold! A whole bunch of separate editions, including what sounds suspiciously like levels that have been snaffled from the full game to promote retailer exclusivity.

Hmmm...

The Dedsec Edition (available at select UK retailers)

Digital content: 3 single player missions with up to almost 60 minutes of additional gameplay:

Damn, marked as private.

This is one game I'm really looking forward too.

Can't wait.

That was my bad. Should be fine now :)

Let us know if you reckon we should get it for PS3- Or worth waiting for the PS4 version?

Thanks.

Looks good. But I hope the hacking / digital terrorism aspect plays bigger part in the game than it does in the trailer.

Agreed - this trailer appears far more action and shooting-orientated than previous glimpses of the game which is concerning. I'd been hoping it would be like the older Hitman games, where using guns is possible but only as a last resort and likely to get you killed.

Nah, I suspect that's a marketing decision (ploy) to get all the (American) idiots who love 'wow flashy explosion punch kill shooting game w00t w00t' to buy it.

What is infuriating is pulling levels from the game and adding them to more expensive "special editions" versions of the game to make more money. Poor show Ubisoft (albeit expected)

Yeah Ubisoft are on a par with EA in that regard.

Just if it's a standard 3rd person open world game with a hacking gimmick - I think I'll wait till it inevitably bombs amid the GTA V furore.

However the open world cyber terrorist / hacker angle is much more appealing.

" I'd been hoping it would be like the older Hitman games, where using guns is possible but only as a last resort and likely to get you killed."

This.

Boss battles in Deus Ex were quite rightly ridiculed.

I'd have been happy to see this being based in London / Far East were guns are most definitely not the norm.
