Oh I found that NPC AI talk I was referencing, it's pretty interesting. Games like this, if designed properly are going to massively take advantage of next-gen hardware. Pretty cool to see what they managed with just the shitty jaguar cores on a 5400 rpm spindle drive.

Looks like Watch Dogs 3 (Legion) is pushed to 2021 and releasing on next gen as well as current gen. Bet they're kicking themselves for not sticking with their original date, which was 2 weeks ago, they'd have cleaned up. Assuming the game was done, and it wasn't just to rebuild the game for next-gen...

It's also the first time Ubi Toronto is delivering a title in this franchise, both others were Ubi Montreal.

That E3 2012 video STILL looks amazing. The world just feels so alive.

The AI they've added to this engine is very reactive, saw a talk about it for Watch Dogs 2 about the various decision trees that NPCs go through depending on what's happening around them, and how AI in different parts of town have different attitudes and personalities.

BTW There are some texture mods out there too that work with The Worse's mod, but I was fine with teh OG textures. Beat WD1 twice, and WD2 three times. I barely beat GTA V after multiple attempts, uninstalling then having to play that damn intro again and again lol. For all the love R* gets and the hate that Ubi gets (most of their games are pretty shit nowadays, all the same open-world formulaic nonsense), they fucking nailed the Watch Dogs series.

Use this mod for Watch Dogs, it enables all of the graphical features they turned off for release, but were present during the now-infamous E3 demo years prior to release. Makes the game look amazeballs, truly a wonderful engine that was gimped by shitty console specs. Good thing we won't have to worry about that shit for the next gen. I REALLY hope that Watch Dogs legion gets a native next-gen port. I know how amazing that engine can look, and you can too =p
Nice reminder thank you. I 100% the first one and have just a bit left on the 2nd one, but will probably play again as the multiplayer and invading other's games should be back active again with this free offering. Was always fun playing tricks on others in their world!

I wonder what price Epic ends up paying Ubisoft per copy of Watch_Dogs they give away? It can't possibly be the whole $29.99 they want you to think it's worth, that game is on sale for peanuts all the time.
They almost certainly pay a lump sum for the entire giveaway regardless of how many copies get snagged.

None of the DLC (or the complete edition) is free and both companies likely hope for additional income via that.

Yeah, game is six years old, and sales are a trickle if anything. Probably was pretty cheap.

Weird summary, but I guess they didn't want to go with:
The Stanley Parable is a humorous meta deconstruction of game design utilizing the walking-simulator genre featuring 19 possible endings.

One of my favorite games of all time.
