PlayStation exclusive Watch Dogs content shown off in new trailer

PlayStation owners will get four missions and a new outfit.

by

Watch Dogs for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 will come with four exclusive missions that will earn you a hacking boost and a new outfit when completed, Ubisoft said on its official blog.

The four missions, which Ubisoft said will take about an hour to complete, will have protagonist Aiden Pierce taking on the security network of Umeni Technologies to deliver payback for the notorious hacker group DedSec. If you finish the missions, you’ll get bonus tech points and unlock the White Hat Hacker outfit.

PS4 and PS3 players will be able to download this content by entering a code that will come with the game.

In October of last year, we learned that the Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs content exclusive to PlayStation is only exclusive for the first six months after release. After that period, it will arrive on other platforms.

Watch Dogs launches May 27 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Wii U version will come sometime later.

as the game come sooner to release, you can clearly see the graphics have detune.  Fking consoles POS.

Well, "exclusive" if you don't count the PC Digital Deluxe edition... ;)

Did they run this on a PS2? The textures look terrible.

Game looks really cool but honestly ACIV looks better as far as graphics and even GTA V.

Well speaking of graphics when everyone was talking about how they were downgraded I said that probably they were like this at Ubisoft main office : "is it true,tell me it's not,they found out that we downgraded the graphics(referring to the fans),quickly assemble a developer team to add extra content for the game or we'll be screwed" and I guess I was right

Microsoft did the same shit with Skyrim DLC's which was more of a big deal than this new outfit, feather collector crap.

the graphics look hideous compared to what they were in the first PS4 video (which looked worse than the demo run on PC).  I refuse to support a company that is so blatantly misleading, unless the game proves me wrong once it's released.

That actually sounds like some worthwhile exclusive content, even if it is only timed. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by the nod to Assassin's Creed in that outfit there. It does kind of look good in all fairness.

I have 3 PS4 games budgeted for 2014 - if you had to buy three PS4 2014 released games, what would you choose?

Seriously though, another boring open world game under Ubisoft's belt. Why?

I love the animation. very fluid. I will get my PS4 in May since they will have at least 4 games I want. That's why I didnt buy one at launch. Now that the titles are rolling in...I will be joining the next gen family

Couldn't care less about an ugly costume & game breaking weapons or abilities but more missions is actually appealing.

I might be wrong, but I think the Uplay Edition on PC includes the Sony 'exclusive' missions. There are so many different SKUs for this game, it's ridiculous though. Every different outlet has some random pack of digital extras.

Who cares, I doubt 60 min of exclusive content will stop u from enjoying the game on whatever system u own.

to all those saying it looks like shit, it doesnt and watching the video will show you. the action is split between ps4 and ps3 and thats obvious but you guys dont care right? the ps4 version looks amazing the ps3 version does too for old tech

after the trailer the other week I was disappointed, but the gameplay will hopefully be awesome so that should make up for it a bit, the graphics do look  better in this trailer too, if the graphics are anywhere near as good as infamous second son on final release happy days, i will probably go for the ps4 version of watch dogs even though I own xbone as well.

Cute :) why not.


but i'll probably get this for PC anyway. mods will give me much more than this (including this) that's for sure ;)

watchdogs is a day 1 digital buy for me, and its great to be able to only pay 30 for a new release so any dlc or exclusive content is icing on the cake. sony ftw

And then they wonder where the internet hate phenomenon comes from... -_-

I'm a PS4 owner, but to me, this kind of business behaviour is reprehensible. Not that I think this content will add any more success to the PS, but "Timed Exclusives" only serve to anger consumers. This is fuel for fanboy wars at its prime form.

This is crap. What's next exclusive start menu screen for PS4 owners?

Well this is going to help me choose the PS4 over the Xbox One. Oh wait! I'm not buying Watch dogs.

Ew. Not sure I need that anyway. Why does exclusive content (for either system) suck so bad, so often?

Oh hey, Ubisoft showing favoritism towards Sony yet again by giving the other consoles incomplete versions.

@NonLinearMemory  That's a tough one, simply because there aren't that many we know of. But if I had to choose I'd say Second Sons, Arkham Knight and the new Uncharted (assuming it'll be out this year).

@ShadowOfKratos  i dont think this is timed exclusive, sony usually has actual exclusive content unlike xbox

@blutfahne Still more content then the Xbox version lol patheitc poor Xbot. If this was on xbox you would be praising this, hypocrite.

@neocaleb Wow you are negative. Mostly you only get skins. Here you get skins and playtime. What do you want exactly if it's none of those?

@domisbatman @ShadowOfKratos  You mean other than all the exclusive PS bullshit that they put in Ubisoft games only on the PS3 version? Or in other games like Dante;s Inferno etc.?

@skipper847 @19James89 If games were meant to be played solely on PC - they wouldnt have invented machines built specifically for gaming. ^^

Gee, I don't know... Additional vehicles? Additional weapons? Additional gameplay modes? Skin changes that don't wind up just being color changes? Play as other characters? Not saying Ubisoft is bad, just saying that exclusive content these says has gotten awfully lazy.

@ShadowOfKratos @haze0986  no i did, but 6 months timed is pointless, by that time noone is playing the game anymore, i shouldve reworded it , its timed but its almost not if you think about it
