Just announced at the Ubisoft E3 2012 Conference.

Everything is connected. Connection is power.

Looks Great!

It's one hell of an engine they have going there, bit scared to think what is powering it all though :(

My thoughts as well.
To me, this is the quintessential example of what I personally look forward to and love about e3.
Showing a new game no one has ever heard of until e3, and basically blowing minds.

This game looks SICK. So damn sick.

I actually think overall Ubisoft killed this e3 (in the positive way).
Seriously, every game they showed minus the dance stuff as not my cup of tea whatsoever, looked amazing for different reasons.
Take note other developers and companies, this is how you do an E3 press conference, talk about the damn games!!

That traffic light moment in the game was freaking sick. So looking forward to this - but going to tame my expectations for obvious reasons.

Wow, two different endings to that scene already. :) Just watched the car chase ending on the top video, and I saw the other one live last night at Ubisoft's conference.

Watch Dogs is definitely looking like a day-one buy for me. Fingers crossed it's coming to Steam.

I didn't know about this game until I read some YouTube comments about a game that surprised a lot of people (in a good way). From what I've seen so far, it looks really good. It's about time developers started working on even larger games. The visuals look amazing so I'm definitely looking forward to the PC version. I just hope Ubisoft sticks with their plan to use less DRM and focus on better post-launch support.

Youtube video quality is soooooooooo ****ty. Gah.

I had to watch it without sound (at work). Was that the PS3 version that was demoed?

Pretty sure it was PC. I really don't think the consoles can do graphics like that.

Looks a combination between GTA and Deus Ex. Loved it!

Please, tell me it's coming to PC.

Wasn't the game's story suppose to happen in Hong Kong? Why New York all of a sudden?

edit: Oops, never mind. Was thinking of Sleeping Dogs :blush:

Wonder what kind of insane Ubisoft DRM this game will have.

I liked this for 2 reasons, first it looks good and the gameplay looks great as well, 2nd, it took place in my hometown.

I wonder though, because in the vid I saw at the end you see other players, so like, we talking a big multiplayer type world? Co-op? What sorta details do we actually have? If it's some big MMO type thing then that's a shame, as great as it looks I'll have to take a pass on it.
