Ubisoft’s impressive-looking open-world third-person action game, Watch Dogs, has now been given a release date, and a trailer.
Watch Dogs was one of the better showings at last year’s E3, and the first game that actually looked to be next-gen. With open-world gameplay, the player (that’s you) will be able to manipulate a technologically driven city through powerful computers, which let you tinker with everything from traffic lights to cell phones. We of course haven’t seen too much of it in action, but it looks impressive. Sadly the trailer below is rather short.
Watch Dogs will launch on November 19 (needlessly, Nov 22 for the UK). The game will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC, as well as the PlayStation 4 at launch, and “other next generation consoles,” according to Ubisoft.
The official PlayStation Blog has announced that the PS3 will be the home of the Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy exclusively for $39.99, not to be outdone by Commander Sheperd and the recently announced Mass Effect Trilogy. The Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy will release on November 13th, just two weeks after Assassin’s Creed III.
The PlayStation Blog confirmed that the trilogy will include Assassin’s Creed II with DLC content, and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Revelations. No word of extra content for the latter two games.
No, the original Assassin’s Creed is not included. That would make it a quadrology if you didn’t know.

Ubisoft has delayed the PC version of Assassin’s Creed III to November 20, three weeks after the console versions.
We’ve decided to all strap on our most horrified face and synchronize a collective gasp here at the addicted-gamer’s (hypothetical) office, but I don’t think we’re fooling anyone. Because there’s been four Assassin’s Creed games and every single one of them arrived late to PC, so this is kind of like tradition.
While Ubisoft previously denied there’d be a delay, we knew deep down, didn’t we?
Ubisoft had a suprisingly strong showing at E3 this year. They had crowds buzzing about next generation visuals with Watch Dogs and they continued to please with Assassin’s Creed III, a game that seems to be rubbing everyone the right way. Below you’ll find the same gameplay footage that was shown at E3, but this time creative director Alexander Hutchinson lays down some commentary. Give it a look.
One of the most talked about games coming out of E3 so far this year is Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs. While it wasn’t the most exciting gameplay demo we have ever seen, it definitely seems to have some interesting concepts and an intriguing storyline. Check out the video for it below and let us know what you think of Ubisoft’s new IP.
One of the brighter spots of Ubisoft’s E3 press conference was the gameplay demo for Far Cry 3. The demo has tigers, drug-induced hallucinations, and a whole lot of killing.
This game undoubtedly earns its mature rating, as the video below so aptly shows. By clicking on the “read more” button you are agreeing that you are at least 17 years of age.
Rayman: Origins was one of my favorite games of 2011, and Rayman: Legends looks to be even better. If you can watch this entire gameplay demo without smiling, you should really be an assassin or something of that nature.
During Ubisoft’s press conference a little earlier today, they took the time to show off a gameplay demo of Assassin’s Creed 3. It’s quite possible that Connor may be the most bad ass assassin yet in the series, if you don’t believe me just sit back and prepare to be enveloped in the pure awesome that is this gameplay demo.
Stay tuned with us here at Addicted-Gamers while we cover the press conference for one of the world’s premiere video game developers, Ubisoft.
The conference is sure to be packed with quite a few good looking games, so join us as we break it down when it starts in just a few minutes.
6:24: Alright everyone, that’s the end of Ubisoft’s conference. Go ahead and submit your votes for Aisha Tyler as worst host ever
6:19: The game is called Watch_Dogs. As my co-worker pointed out, it’s kind of reminiscent of a futuristic Assassin’s Creed. The Gameplay demo we saw wasn’t too impressive. It seems to have a couple interesting concepts but the full game will have to be a hell of a lot more enticing than the demo we saw was.
6:14: The game seems to center around futuristic espionage, with you controlling a character named Aiden Cross. I have to admit that the character models are pretty impressive
6:09: Ubisoft is showing a gameplay demo for their new IP, although I’m not entirely sure what it’s called.
6:01: A bunch of people just played a game called Shoot Mania for some reason, and according to Aisha Tyler defeat tastes like pennies O.o
We know what the gamers like.
At least, we want to. With the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo just one week away, the anticipation has skyrocketed. In one week’s time, gamers around the world will be tuning in to get their first glimpses of the future of gaming in the upcoming years. The stages have already been set for the inevitable “Who will win E3?” debates and “This new technology will revolutionize gaming!” arguments.
I wish I had the inside scoop on what brand spanking new, as yet unannounced titles will be showcased at the “Big Three” panels this year, but sadly I’ve yet to so thoroughly infiltrate the industry’s mighty defenses. Perhaps next year, after I’ve finished my lessons with Snake. I have, however, compiled a list of the most likely games that will receive major attention this year.
And I’d like for you to vote on which one you most want to see!
