Watch Dogs PS4 details emerge: frame rate is 'pretty steady,' DualShock 4 touchpad used for map

Jonathan Morin, the Creative Director behind Watch Dogs, recently sat down for a chat with PlayStation Access to touch base on several aspects regarding the upcoming open world hacking title.

Speaking during a Q&A session (via DualShockers), Morin described the frame rate for the PlayStation 4 version of the game as “pretty steady and excellent,” and went on to add that Ubisoft is still busy “fine tuning those things up to the very last second.”

In terms of length, players can expect anywhere in the region of 35-40 hours out of Aiden Pearce’s high-octane adventure. However, Morin added this length can extend to 100+ should you wish to experience everything the game has to offer.

The DualShock 4 controller won’t be featured extensively, with gamers only able to use its extra features - in this case the touchpad - to operate the map, similar to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

NPCs can “of course” be killed if you wish to do so, and they’ll react differently depending on Aiden’s reputation and actions.

Finally, the PS4 and PS3 versions of the game will not feature any online ‘interactions’ due to “technical reasons.”

Much more info can be garnered from the PlayStation Access interview, seen below. Watch Dogs is scheduled to ship for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on May 27, with a Wii U edition launching some time later.
