I haven't even looked at this game. Like many I just assumed it was like a Sleeping Dogs sequel or something. Watching this I'm rather excited. If even half of this is actually dynamic and not scripted out the ass I'll pick it up.

Only thing that worries me a bit is how easy it appears to hack anything. A simple press of a button and you're in any system in the game? I understand it would get boring QUICK if you had to go through a mini-game on every hack but there should be some aspect to hacking beyond 'hold Q'. Maybe I'm missing something and just haven't looked into the game enough.

Then again this is Ubisoft and Assassin's Creed is basically just that. You basically hold or click one button to do everything from fighting to climbing, interacting, sneaking, you name it.


Shit, I wish we'd get a Sleeping Dogs sequel. That is a really, REALLY good game, that deserved to sell a lot more copies than it did. Best story in an open-world game, the kung-fu works great, the shooting is solid (what little of it you do), the open world itself is cool. Really the only thing that sucks in the game is the driving, which I do have to say is absolutely fucking terrible.


I kind of agree with the hacking thing, but someone made a comment somewhere to the effect of "Remember the hacking in Bioshock and how it quickly got old? Now imagine having to do that in a game like this, where you hack 30000 things by the time it's all said and done." And that's a very good point. They really can't design a mini-game that's going to stand up that long.

As for this basically being AC, well, all of Ubisoft's games are now basically the same game with a slightly different coat of paint. In AC you climb towers and Sync with them to unlock a circular portion of the map. In Watch Dogs, you hack ctOS substations to unlock a circular portion of the map. In Far Cry 3, you climb radio towers and turn off the jammer to unlock a circular portion of the map.

And there's plenty more examples like that.

Really they just make the same game over and over again now. Fortunately it's a game I enjoy playing, so I don't really mind.

I wonder if there will be any skill tree type customization of Aiden to enhance it though.

There is a skill tree, yes, and part of the skill tree improves your hacking. Surprise surprise, it looks a bit like the one in Far Cry 3.

It has to be simple to do it on the fly in the context of action sequences. I wonder if there will be any skill tree type customization of Aiden to enhance it though.

I assume there will be some limitations to that, otherwise the game would become pretty boring pretty quick.
However there isn't really much info on that aspect of the game yet.

Much of this is just remixed footage we've already seen and I think that's partially due to the underlying tasks/events being pretty formulaic. That being said it seems like a pretty good open world game despite that fact so if it's just everything we've seen and a few other elements its still pretty promising.

I assume it will be out in November since there are launch bundles for the PS4.
Is the PC version going to be released the same time as the console ones, who knows.
Did not really keep an eye on Ubisoft titles lately if they come out same day all platform or the PC versions are lagging behind?

The German Ubisoft page for this game lists the release date as the 21st of November for PC/PS3/360/Wii U. For some reason, the US one mentions "holiday 2013" for all platforms I checked.

Hacking seems to be a location puzzle, find the nodes, gain direct line of sight to them, hack them. And then you get access to all the connected devices in an limited area. Assuming you get, in one way or another, direct line of sight.

I had to laugh when he said Detroit had business opportunities though... that's not what I think when hearing that name.

Man this is the first time in years I was actually impressed by a gameplay demo...

Assuming the player hacking is not gonna happen every few minutes it would be the first proper implementation of MP in a SP experience

You are dead to us.

I also want to play some sports games as well..and there are some other titles that have nabbed my attention.

I hate myself.. no worries.

Uhhh..hmmm...I can honestly say i'm not psychic...psychotic OK but....Haven't we seen the first part of this video before? I kept wondering if the link was broken? They had already shown everything up until the MP part kicked in...right...right? Perhaps I shouldn't have snorted all that 'Carpet Fresh' back in the 80's *shrug* I dunno

Yeah, really looking forward to this and there's GOTTA be a way to turn the 'sneaking into someones game' thingy off. Then again, I find it hard to believe that no one would want me playing in they're game....I mean, what harm could it possibly be? *BUUUUUUUHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA HA HA HA cough cough cough ooh shit oooh* DAMN CIGARETTES!

A lot of awesomeness in this trailer, however in a live-game(as in, post retail release) situation, I can see the hacking intrusions getting WAY out of control, let alone people just jumping into your game and PKing you all over the place.

The last thing I want in my single player stealth/hacking game is a bunch of asshats trying to constantly hack my phone or run me over or whatever. I assume you can opt out of this random-join nonsense?

Also, this IS ubisoft, any word on the DRM for this game?

I very much doubt that this feature would be something you can not turn off or limit in some ways.

I hope so. They haven't said anything to that effect, though. Every preview has basically been "Other players can enter your SP game."

I would imagine they're smart enough to allow it to be turned off, but who knows.
