How Ubisoft Is Amplifying Watch Dogs for the PlayStation 4

Bigger and better

While the PlayStation 4 version of Ubisoft’s upcoming open world adventure Watch Dogs will essentially be the same as its PlayStation 3 counterpart, the publisher is hoping to push everything a little further on Sony’s next generation platform. Speaking as part of a video on the PlayStation Blog, senior producer Dominic Guay explained that the added horse power of the impending platform will enable the developer to enhance the experience.

“If you play Watch Dogs on the PS4, we want to make sure that we use all of the console’s capabilities," he said. "So, all of the game’s details we’re going to push forward. We’re going to have more immersion, we’re going to increase connectivity, and we’re going to enhance the density of things. It’s going to basically be the same game experience, but magnified on the PS4.”

In the video, Guay also expanded upon how the developer’s aiming to combine single player and multiplayer. “We want the player to be surprised when he meets other players, and we want him to be able to go from single player to multiplayer without having to go through a lobby, menus, and game settings," he added. "We want things to be natural, and to breach the wall between single player and multiplayer.”

You can hear a lot more from the developer in the video embedded below. Will you be connecting your next generation console to Watch Dogs later in the year, or are you planning to stick with the PS3 version? Let us know in the comments section below.

playstation 4 for sure, I want to finally give my PC a break for a little while and enjoy playing on the couch chilling and playing watch dogs in full glory!

If the game itself is good enough, I'll be getting it for the PS4 at launch. Looking forward to E3 where we'll no doubt see much more of this in action.

Can't wait, this will definitely be one of my launch day purchases.

I usually only buy one launch title and swap with my friends... it looks like watch dogs is the one for me.

If they take everything that guy sees on his phone off the screen and put it onto the Gamepad screen on the WiiU that would be about as immersive as any videogame can get. Not saying it's gonna happen, but I'm not picking a platform until I know for sure. I'm willing to give up a few polygons and textures for feeling like that guy on screen is me.
