Watch Dogs Visual Teaser Welcomes You to Chicago

Watch Dogs Visual Teaser Welcomes You to Chicago

Ubisoft shows off Watch Dogs, giving fans an idea of what the game will look like when it launches on May 27.

After taking a bit of fan backlash for what looked to be a downgrade in Watch Dogs' graphics since its E3 2012 debut, Ubisoft has decided to launch a new trailer showing off the visuals of the final build. The trailer also doubles as a travelogue for the city of Chicago, where Watch Dogs takes place.

"There's no scale down in quality, especially the next-gen versions," creative director Jonathan Morin previously said when asked about a visual downgrade from the game's first teaser. "It's pretty much the opposite. What we showed at E3 2012 in a lot of respects was less good. I think it's in the details. So no, there's no scale down."

Watch Dogs is currently coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on May 27, 2014, while the Wii U version of the game has been delayed until an undisclosed date. According to Morin, players can expect to complete the game in 35 to 40 hours. We've also added the original E3 2012 reveal below, so you can tell us what you think about the game then and now.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
