Watch Dogs vs GTA V: Positive Signs for Ubisoft
On February 20, Ubisoft showcased brand new gameplay demo of Watch Dogs, it looked both astonishing and amazing. The demo that Ubisoft showed off displayed (first look) the technology that gamers will be able to witness on their new PS4 (even though it was running on a high-end PC with specification close to PS4).
Watch Dogs' environment, settings, surroundings and massive open world all looked perfect and incredible in the new demo. Our lead character, Aiden Pearce was shown doing cool things like hacking someones ATM pin number by just using cellphone and then going all-out to steal money via nearby cash-out.
Recently Rockstar Games discussed the possiblity of GTA game with futuristic setting, but guess what, the game is already here in the form of Ubisoft's Watch Dogs.
With Watch Dogs, Ubisoft took a bold move of redefining the definition of "Futuristic Setting" with respect to games. For them it no longer mean flying cars, aliens and all other over the top extras. Watch Dogs with futuristic setting means, gorgeous looking cities and surroudings controlled by major technologies, and gamers plying up information about any soul they encounter just by a tap on their mobile device.
In short, all the things we have seen so far about Watch Dogs leads only to two thing, firstly the game has the full potential to become one of the top notch game on both current as well as next-generation consoles, and secondly it possess all fan favourite gameplay element to beat GTA V.
Watch Dogs vs GTA V: Negative Signs for Ubisoft
No doubt Ubisoft took some sorts of inspiration from GTA series for Watch Dogs. So the biggest concern of gamers right now is, Watch Dogs may turn out to be less enjoyable and more repetitive than GTA series.
Furthermore, fans are expecting new dimensions from both Watch Dogs and next-generation consoles (PS4 and next-gen Xbox) such as much better A.I, bigger environments, better physics etc.
Lastly, If Rockstar Games decide to port GTAV as a launch title for PS4 and next-gen Xbox, things would really get more interesting between these two titles.
