    Watch Dogs’ Creative Director: PC Version Better Than E3 2012 Build In Many Regards, NG Close To PC

    Watch Dogs’ Creative Director Jonathan Morin has been discussing lately the differences between the PC and the next-gen version of Watch Dogs on Twitter. According to Jonathan, the PC version will feature higher resolution effects (lighting effects, rain simulation, depth of field, particles system) than its next-gen console counterpart.
    Although Jonathan said that the PS4 version that was demoed last week was close to the PC version, he admitted that the aforementioned effects will be rendered at a higher resolution on the PC, and that this difference in resolution will certainly make things prettier on the PC.
    In addition, Jonathan claimed that the PC version looks stunning, that the trailer – and the hands-on event that took place last week – was on PS4, and that the PC version will be – in many regards – better than the E3 2012 build.
    This is what Jonathan Morin had to say when a fan asked whether the PC version will be able to match the E3 2012 build that was showcased:
    “In many regards better. We did not stop working and PC never stop to evolve.”
    Moreover, Jonathan admitted that the latest Story trailer was never meant to wow gamers with its visuals as there was no way to match what the PC could do.
    “Trailer wasn’t a good GFX reference. E3 2012 was PC as we always said and E3 2013 is PS4 reference. Was always the case”
    This further proves that the PC version will be better – graphically – than its console brother, despite Jonathan claiming earlier that the NG version does come close to the PC.
    So, why wasn’t the latest trailer of Watch Dogs showcased on the PC? That mystery remains unanswered. Perhaps Ubisoft wanted to boost the next-gen console version? For what is worth, Morin promised that more PC footage will be revealed prior to the game’s release.
    When a fan asked whether Ubisoft would be releasing any PC gameplay footage for Watch Dogs, Jonathan replied and said that there will be:
    “We are not making demos every day But you will see PC HD footage again yes”
    Watch Dogs is currently planned for a May 27th release on PC, next-gen and current-gen consoles!

    I know I took advantage of a same as cash for 18 months deal at Best Buy and was short on the minimum purchase amount so I bought this game to get over that requirement. That was back in May/June of last year. But as it gets closer to release I've been looking less forward to this game. Especially at what they wowed everyone with and what they've been showing lately.

    Its just sucks because honestly... this was one of the games i bought a PS4 for you know... i just hope it holds the PS4 up to its shiny next-gennyness and wows us more than what weve been seeing lately.

    I know, especially since they pushed back the release to polish it. When you look at Infamous, it makes me wonder what the deal is. I know Watch Dogs as a lot more going on in terms of city dynamics, but I might be surprised because I'm going in expecting not much now.

    I did the exact same thing. Still waiting on my Damn rewards because of the order still being open.

    So it was essentially a bait and switch after all. I was under the impress, when I got hyped for it, it was on at least PS4-like hardware.

    I got it in a "preorder 3, save $20 off each" deal. In a way I got it for free (or $40, I prefer the former ) though I'm considering seeing if I can take it back since I can't cancel the order

    Wait, I don't get what's wrong with them saying PC > PS4? It's not a secret...

    And they've referred to E3 2013 being the benchmark expected for PS4. And that footage looks more than good. Chill, pills...

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Considering the expected release date for the game and how long ago E3 2013 was, I'm less than worried.

    I'm not so sure about that. Plus Infamous is modeled after real life Seattle.

    Did you do it through Future Shop? If so, I did as well. Stock piled 15 games on that list for future release. When time came I wanted to cancel one of them, wasn't an issue. I even asked if I wanted to cancel them all after only receiving one at $20 off, would it be a problem....they said no.

    Pretty sure Watch Dogs was shooting for a more authentic Chicago than Infamous was shooting for with Seattle.



    Anyway. I'm still stoked to play this game. Regardless of its graphical prowess on the ps4 I'm still getting it (and for only $40 I might add ). I love this formula of game. I enjoy Ubisoft's open world games.

    Lame excuse for not having good enough developers to take advantage of the PS4's raw power and be able to at least keep the graphics they shown before. I mean just look at The Order, it looks gorgeous.

    What makes you think all the footage we saw before was ps4 footage? It's not exactly uncommon that we get shown the PC footage of a multiplat game. Devs always want to put their best foot forward and PC will usually be their best foot.

    As for it's comparison to the Order, I find that to be a flawed comparison for a couple reasons.
    1. The Order is the game forcing letterbox display in order to achieve those gfx.
    2. It's not an open world game that tries to emulate a city the size of Chicago while allowing for the ability to manipulate almost anything you walk past.

    I like the look of the Order too, but lets be real here...

    You've got a GTX770 if memory served me right don't you? We should be in for a treat, iirc the 2012 E3 demo was done using a GTX680 and I'm sure the 770 is faster. It's going to be glorious!

    Though I think it'll look good on all platforms

    Yup, everyone expects the PC to be better graphically than the PS4 - that's a given.

    What I think people are pissed about is that we now know PC footage was shown during the PS4 reveal! That's a classic bait and switch tactic. There Ubisoft were bigging up the the PS4 and what it can do (rightly so!) and they go and show f'ing PC footage for a game and get everyone stoked for it. Knack and Killzone looked stunning during the PS4 reveal and did when they were released, what we see here is Ubisoft not being able to compete graphically with those games and showing PC footage instead.

    Makes me fear for The Division. If they've been showing PC footage of Watch Dogs, then you can bet your bottom dollar that's what we've been seeing for the The Division too. I'll not lose sleep over Watch Dogs but I'll be very very pissed if the The Division looks $#@! on the PS4

    Yeah it was FutureShop. I think I got 12 games during that sale, and another 3 at BstBuy that I missed out on. lmao

    That is exactly what I'm pissed about. The footage we get today look nothing like even the PS Meeting stuff, which I was under the impression was "PS4-like" PC hardware.

    Thank god infamous: Second Son still looks as great as that reveal, or I'd feel seriously fooled into buying the PS4.

    As with all games I look forward to, I haven't watched any WD trailers other than the two E3 trailers. I might cave in and watch one of the PS4 footage everyone is getting angry over.

    It better look like a PS3 game

    Whatever, I'm getting the game and I will enjoy it. I think some people are really making a mountain out of a mole hill. I personally think the game still looks really good.

    Ding ding ding, we have a winner. For some reason there has been some crazy molehill $#@! going on in the press here lately. I find it highly convenient that these are popping up around the same time as Titanfall dropping. I can only assume shills trying to move some XB1 units and discredit PS4 capabilities. I'm not being fooled by this.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.
