"Fancy going sightseeing?"

We don’t know about you, but our favourite thing about open world games is gradually exploring every facet of the map. Titles like Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag have incredibly dense sandboxes, and there’s always something new to discover as a result. Ubisoft’s upcoming hack happy escapade looks set to adopt a similar philosophy, as this tour of the title’s Chicago setting indicates.

Captured by our friends over at PlayStation Access, the ten-or-so minute clip shows a single vehicle being driven through the city’s various wards, uncovering both rural areas and more densely populated urban environments. Visual downgrade or not, there certainly appears to be plenty to take in, and we reckon that the vehicle handling – which has been worked on by Driver: San Francisco developer Ubisoft Reflections – looks pretty great.

Are you looking forward to tapping into this title next week? What are you planning to do first? Play your cell phone ringtone in the comments section below.
