Yesterday, Ubisoft released a brand new story trailer of Watch Dogs showcasing some in-game gameplay footage from most recent next-gen build. Something was amiss related to graphics/visuals in the footage, it was heavily downgraded from the build we saw at E3 2012 and E3 2014.
Fans immediately noticed the difference and lambasted Ubisoft for ruining of great game with great potential.
Ubisoft PR & Event Manager, Tessa Vilyn via Twitter has just issued a clarification on entire Watch Dogs Graphics/Visuals Downgraded SAGA/Controversy.
Read some of the most surprising tweets of Tessa below:
“Bit bummed about some people not liking the graphics of the #Watchdogs trailer! I saw the game guys and it looks INCREDIBLE! #promise”
“Trust me on this one, you won’t.. i saw the game it looks incredible. It looks what a next gen should look like.”
“Really they didn’t downgrade anything,its just a little different then when you first saw it i guess. It really does look great”
“i was in montreal, i saw the game, i played the game… people who know me, know i dont make false promises.”
“my opinion of the game is purely based on what i saw when i was playing it.”
Twitter user Humberto Espinoza once again asked: “any comments on the watchdog trailer yesterday? Tbh the build looks very downgraded from sep 13 demo. This worries a lot”
And to this Tessa Vily replied: “yes! did’nt see my tweet an hour ago? 😉 Believe me the game is not downgraded, that would just be a bit ridiculous. :)”
