Ubisoft has announced that their upcoming open-world game, Watch Dogs will be releasing on November 22 in Europe and since South Africa falls into the Europe region, that means it’ll be launching here on that date too. Watch Dogs will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC.
Also, while it was announced as a launch title for the PlayStation 4 at the PlayStation Meeting earlier this year, Ubisoft has indicated that it is “also planned for other next-generation consoles” which probably means the next Xbox.
Additionally, they have also revealed that once again, players who purchase the game on either PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will receive exclusive content just like that of titles in the Assassin’s Creed series and Far Cry 3. Ubisoft had this to say regarding the exclusive content:
“We can confirm that customers who will purchase Watch Dogs on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will be able to download 60 minutes of additional gameplay via the PlayStation Network after the game’s launch. As of now, we have no more details to share.”
Also, four collector’s editions have been announced: the Dedsec Edition, the Vigilante Edition, the Uplay Exclusive Edition and the Special Edition.
The Dedsec Edition is the biggest of the lot; it comes in a collector box which includes a figurine of the player character Aiden Pearce, a steelbook, artbook, soundtrack, four augmented reality cards, three badges and a map of the in-game Chicago. But wait, there’s more! The Dedsec edition is also packaged with three single-player missions which come in the form of DLC that add approximately an hour of additional gameplay. They are the Palace Pack, a mission centred on a police raid of an Internet mogul; Signature Shot, a mission dealing with a biometrics weapon smuggled into Chicago; and the Breakthrough Pack, which tasks you with outing the criminals holding corporate CEOs to ransom.
The Vigilante Edition also comes in a collector box but instead comes with Aiden’s cap and mask, soundtrack and the Palace Pack Mission.
The Uplay Exclusive Edition comes with the steelbook plus the Palace, Signature Shot and Breakthrough Packs.
The Special Edition comes with the Breakthrough Pack.
