Watch Dogs gets November 19 release date

Ubisoft says Watch Dogs will be available "at the launch" of the PlayStation 4, and that the game "is also planned for other next generation consoles."

Ubisoft has announced that its upcoming open-world title Watch Dogs will be released in North America on November 19.

The game will reach Europe three days later on November 22.

The dates apply to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC versions of the game. A PlayStation 4 version is confirmed, and Ubisoft says that version of Watch Dogs will be available "at the launch" of the console, whenever that might be. Sony has said the PlayStation 4 will launch later this year.

As for Microsoft's yet-to-be-unveiled next Xbox--which the company will formally unveil on May 21--Ubisoft adds that Watch Dogs "is also planned for other next generation consoles."

Ubisoft also detailed the various special editions of the game that will be made available.

Purchase the game through Ubisoft's Uplay store to get the Watch Dogs Uplay Exclusive Edition, which comes with three additional single-player missions. Ubisoft says the trio of objectives add almost 60 minutes to the game.

The three missions are called the Palace Pack, Signature Shot, and Breakthrough Pack. They're all offered in various other combinations with various other retailers, and offer bonuses after completion that will help out in the rest of the game.

The most expensive edition of Watch Dogs is The Dedsec Edition, however, which offers up a 23cm figurine of protagonist Aiden Pearce, a steelbook case, an artbook, soundtrack, map of Chicago, four collectible cards, three badges, and all three extra missions. The Watch Dogs Deadsec Edition is available at selected retailers.

I will buy the game, just not preorder it. I have no use for Uplay.

I think people are taking the release date out of context...just because a game is available at launch of a new system and the said game is coming out on the 360/PS3 on a specific date does not mean that the next gen version of said game is going to be ready or that the next gen consoles will even be released by said date.....

Looking good, been craving a new type of action/adventure game from Ubisoft so especially if AC: Black Flag doesn't draw me in (going to take a bit of convincing after how much ACIII disappointed me), I'll be getting this game for the Wii U, I know Ubisoft will implement the GamePad in some ways along with the MiiVerse features.

Watch Dogs is out on November 19th in North America. Does that mean the Launch day of the Playstation 4 is on November 19th 2013. hmmm

Watch Dogs a ps4 launch title? What does this make me think. PS4 launch date is November 19th. I see this game launching on ps3, ps4, pc, and xbox 360 on November 19th, with the 720 version following around December.  This will deffinately be the first PS4 game I buy.

Hopefully even though it launches at the same time as current gen console versions, the PC version will take advantage of current hardware and look amazing like the next gen versions probably will.

I want to see a more about the plot in this game or more characters at least.

If you buy this game on current gen consoles your getting ripped off bad.

This sounds like a game that would be really fun with mods and if so, the loss of three missions is nothing. Even if it doesn't support modding, I won't mind losing out on them, because the main game should be enough.

The only things I'm interested in in all the Collectors editions that they are offering us are the 'Iconic Cap', 'Vigilante Mask', 'White Steelbook' and of course the game. I wish all those things we're in one. :/

Other next generation CONSOLES?  Plural? Is Nintendo planning on releasing ANOTHER console between now and November we don't know about? Is it gonna be called the WII U2? LOL

I am *really* curious to see how the PS4 & Xbox 720 versions of the game compare to the PC version when the computer its played on has reasonably-new video cards and cpu's.  Same graphics?  Same load times?

Bad news for PC players like myself is we will still be forced to deal with the Uplay interface.  (At least on consoles Uplay is more behind-the-scenes data tracking rather than in your face on PC.)

That means the PS4 will be launching in November.

I hope this means the PS4 is out on November 19th as well. I don't really want to play this game on the PS3 or 360 but I don't want to have to wait to play it on the PS4. Regardless, the game looks great and, I will be purchasing it.

I wish well for Microsoft's next console, 'cause I want to get all the next-gen consoles. I don't want to just stick with one; I never have, and never want to. If I want this game, I want to make the harder decision as to which one I want (PS4 or the next Microsoft console).

From the wording, sounds like the PS4 will be out BEFORE Nov 19. I know it doesn't say that, but by reading between the lines, you can safely assume it will be before that. Otherwise they would have said, "And PS4 version will be available later in the holiday season at the Launch of PS4."  Here's hoping for a Sept/Oct. release date!!!

Actually, I bet that this Nov.19th date is when we'll see the NextBox720 (if it gets released this year that is)


And for all those that say they aren't interested in the next-gen consoles, you're just lying to yourself because you know you can't afford it. Any true gamer is ALWAYS excited about the next hardware release for games to be enjoyed on!

Seeing as how I finally got an HDTV, I'll just stick with the current gen version of the game.

More BS DLC, probably end up getting the game on PS4 anyway.

I fucking hate Uplay. Seriously, get rid of that shit. Every Ubisoft game I play it spams that crap in front of my face. Just drop it and give us the damn content already. or at least let me block it so it doesn't have to be shoved in my face every 5 minutes. I dread having to deal with it in the next Splinter Cell, Watch Dogs, and Beyond Good & Evil 2. Fortunately these are the only games Ubisoft has that I'm interested in. Any more and I might go insane.

Couldn't care less about PS4 or X720 (pc gamer), but can't wait for Watch Dogs. Looks fun, interesting concept, great graphics -- that just leaves the story

I can't see myself buying a PS4 until I'm completely finished with PS3 games, and I doubt I'll want to buy the inferior version of any game, so this, and other launch titles, will have to wait a while.

@Killer6b9 Totally! Also what happens if the PS4 comes out before the game is released on current platforms lol, that should make life interesting for the 2 companies.

@demonkingx5 If you buy a PS4 or Nextbox in less than 2 years from now on YOU are getting ripped off

MortalKombat147

@demonkingx5 Yes cause graphics make the game so much better.  It could run like garbage on the PS4, we don't even know.  There might only be a handful of games that can lay claim to be one of the greatest games of all time this generation despite all the improved graphics.

@JOHN1486 And the members of the band U2 will let Nintendo use that name pro Bono, because they want to give the console The Edge it needs.

@collinmul You cannot compare PC to next gen unless you let modders work on the PC version. Take Skyrim. If you just compare the game on PC (without modds/texture packs), you only get a minor upgrade on the PC. With the free modds/texture packs, it is on a whole different level. Same will be true with next gen.

@collinmul I'm more curious to see how the scaled back versions are gonna look on PS3 and 360......probably very similar to GTA IV.

@DarkReign2552 The presentation is what's most annoying, feels like I'm playing a Wii or something when it pops up with stuff in the corner of the screen.

@MortalKombat147 @demonkingx5 Doubt it. Think about how ps4 runs pc architecture. They can just port the game over to ps4 from PC. Don't be cynical, it's still more logical to get the game on ps4 than a ps3 if you want to enjoy better graphics. There's nothing wrong with that.

"pc is going to be a million times better then consoles "? Yeah right. Good one.

@ModestDude @MortalKombat147 @demonkingx5  

It would actually be more logical to get the game on PC...since PC is still going to be a million times better then consoles, hence why Sony finally saw the light and went with PC focused hardware.
