WatchDogs Announced

The WatchDogs Website has a trailer showing off this just-revealed open world game in development at Ubisoft Montreal. This originally seemed to be a console title, but there are plans for a PC edition as well, and the trailer offers hope for an impressive new IP. No release date is offered at this point.

Also, why do they start shooting at our hero? They shouldn't start shooting at any bystander who is covering their face, not in that sort of weather, and they shouldn't be able to recognise him with his face covered. Maybe they're using some hack system of their own, but all to often in games, they seem to use magic, and if you're making a gritty, pseudo-realistic game like this looks to be, that breaks the immersion IMHO.

From what I got from the clip, the player character makes his presence plainly known at the art show as part of his strategy, perhaps as a show of intimidation (And you can tell some of the attendants recognize him, as they refer to him by name), so it's logical to think the target's bodyguards who were already on their way were made well aware of the player's presence at the art show by the target's assistant, they would then assume that the car crash was no mere coincidence and would therefore be immediately alerted by anyone acting or looking suspicious.

Plus the 10 seconds before the bodyguards actually started firing... You could argue they were getting out of their cars, or whatever, but it really doesn't take long to look around an intersection at the few people standing to determine someone could be the guy you want to shoot at, and if you're the type to shoot at people, will you care if you're not 100% : )

As for the conversation, of course it's scripted... Can you imagine how crappy the game would feel if you missed the first 5s of the conversation, because you were just too slow? Plot convenience is a useful tool in any form of media ; )

I enjoyed the video, but am not sure it's my style of game... I don't care for GTA (3+), or Saint's Row, etc... or rather, I don't care enough to try them beyond the few minutes I've put into some of them.
