This free mod makes Watch Dogs look more gorgeous than ever before

Watch Dogs is one of the best games of the year and a decent showcase title for the new generation consoles, but it still doesn’t stand up to the seemingly professionally doctored demo from E3 2012. What we saw two years ago was a game that looked more stunning than just about anything else on the market — the reality wasn’t quite as impressive. Now, just two months after the game’s release, PC modder Federico Rojas (aka TheWorst) has released the final version of his graphics mod for Watch Dogs on the PC, bringing the retail release up to speed with the pipe dream from the original demo.

Ubisoft is on a roll.

There weren’t many surprises, but unlike some of the other conferences, many of the games Ubisoft presented will actually be on store shelves at some point this year. This isn’t an outline of the new generation — these are games we’ll all be playing in just a few months. More →

Watch Dogs Review

Does Watch Dogs live up to the massive hype?

Does Watch Dogs live up to the massive hype?

What happens when a game takes on a life of its own? When developers make promises that they aren’t going to be able to keep, gamers usually call them out right away. No matter how good your game turns out to be, the chances of it being revolutionary are slim to none, but through some of the most masterful marketing we’re likely to see this generation, Watch Dogs kept everyone captivated until its release, quickly breaking every Ubisoft sales record in its path.

Watch 16 minutes of leaked gameplay footage from Watch Dogs on the PS4

Watch Dogs is certainly the most anticipated multiplatform release of the month, but with less than a week until the game’s release, there’s still plenty we don’t know about it. Ubisoft revealed last week that the visuals will see a slight uptick on the PS4, but until we see the game in action for ourselves, it’s not worth worrying about. For those of you who were waiting for more footage to reach the Web before deciding whether or not to pick up Watch Dogs, you’re in luck — one PS4 owner managed to score a retail copy of the game earlier this week and streamed the game live on Twitch. He was quickly banned, but Dailymotion user LordofDarkness has subsequently posted a 16 minute clip of the stream that shows off a decent chunk of gameplay. More →

Watch Dogs will run at 900p resolution on PS4, 792p on Xbox One

Watch Dogs came out of nowhere at E3 2012, wowing audiences by showcasing a new open world adventure that would help define the hype for the next generation of consoles. After an unfortunate delay that pushed the game into 2014, the release of Watch Dogs is finally in sight. Unfortunately, the adventure will be slightly downgraded from full HD as Ubisoft announced on its blog on Tuesday that Watch Dogs will run at 900p on the PlayStation 4 and an even lower 792p on the Xbox One.
