"You're not supposed to see this"

Ubisoft has got Watch Dogs locked down harder than a hack happy whiz-kid on death row, but that hasn’t stopped the odd bit of footage from making its way online. While we’re sure that the French publisher will be eager to encrypt this clip before the day is over, it shows the sandbox escapade’s opening mission being played on a PlayStation 4. If you’re anything like us, you’ll probably want to avoid the video in fear of spoilers.

Still, we saw enough smartphones, sharp suits, and totally inconspicuous mouth scarves during our quick look to prove that this is legit. There are only a few days until the title officially deploys, so we’d recommend skipping over this if you’ve already made up your mind. If you do happen to watch the video, though, be sure to let us know whether this has boosted your interest levels – or caused you to lose connection with the urban adventure.

Update: What happens when editors are equally frightened of spoilers? We mess up. As pointed out in the comments section, this is actually Xbox 360 footage, as evidenced by the odd button prompt and achievement icon. Still, we suppose that this still has value if you want to see what the title's first mission looks like – just imagine it in 900p, and you're good to go. Rest assured, Sammy has been taken out the back and shot for this blunder. We apologise for the error.
