Ubisoft have released a new video ‘unboxing’ (or ‘revealing’ to you or I) the contents of the special collectors edition of their near-futuristic, hack-tastic Watch_Dogs.
The Watch_Dogs: Dedsec Edition box will contain the full game including bonus content (including skills bonuses and an alternative outfit) packaged in a steelbook case, full CD soundtrack, a stunning 80 page art booklet, 3 exclusive badges AND a fantastic figurine of protagonist, Aiden Pierce in his ‘execution’ pose. On top of all that, purchasers of the limited edition set will get an official Watch_Dogs map of Chicago (where the game is set) and four ‘augmented reality’ cards!
If you’re anything like us, you’re probably thinking WOW! What the hell are augmented reality cards? Well, that is as yet unclear? However, the game allows Aiden to receive news and information about the various NPCs on his hacking device through something called augmented reality. It provides him with background information, vital statistics and the probability that this person will be the perpetrator or victim of crime. We know the special cards are related to the games characters, so the assumption would be that there is a link between the two and that the cards will provide such info on the characters each represents. From the look of the symbols on the cards, it may be that they are linked to some kind of smart phone app (like how you can use your smartphone to read barcodes and symbols – but who knows?). Got it? Us neither, but it’s all very exciting covert stuff!
For full and further details, watch the Ubisoft video below!
Watch_Dogs will be released on November 22nd for PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Xbox One (as this is also launch days for the Xbox One) and should available at the PS4 launch the following week!
