View Full Version : Heya Watch_Dogs! Your ComDev here...

So this is more than overdue... Let me properly introduce myself:

I'm Nik, I'm the ComDev for Watch_Dogs!

I know I'm a bit late to the party, and I won't make any excuses, but please believe me when I say I wanted to come come say "hi" a lot earlier.

So who am I exactly? I'm the Community Developer on Watch_Dogs. What does this mean? I'm the guy "responsible" for most of the communications on all of our official social channels... I'm talking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Forums and whatnot. I loosely throw "responsible" in there because I can't (and won't) take credit for all that happens on there... a lot of people are doing an awesome job at providing some great content and insight on the game... I'm merely one of the messengers.

I won't go into too much details right now, simply know that I'm here now and that I'll try to be as present as possible. Now I'm trying to ready myself for the barrage of questions that I can already feel coming my way... Maybe hold on to them for a moment... we'll try and get a Q&A thread set up. You're probably all aware I won't be able to answer all of them, or even most of them for that matter... at least not now, but I'll do my best.

One last thing... when in the title up there I say "Your ComDev", I really do mean YOUR ComDev... I'm here for you guys. Heck, if it wasn't for you, I probably wouldn't be sitting at this desk. So feel free to reach out to me to chat or even to simply say "hi"... my door's always open and I'm really looking forward to meeting you.

Cheers!

UbiNik

Would you do a Reddit AMA?

Would you do a Reddit AMA?

I would but not in the near future... I don't think there's enough that we could say about the game right now to make it interesting... and also, why me? It'd be much more interesting for you guys to have some guys from the Dev Team on it.

In my honest opinion...

Welcome too (I think you know why I'm saying too - Watch Dogs Forum - VaasCARV3R :D) Nik!

I agree about the Reddit AMA.

Itīs great to have a ComDev here to listen to our questions about the game.

About questions, I ran into this site a couple of hours ago and have to confirm if itīs legit or not. They demand Surveys, just like many Scam-websites and it made me question it. As a ComDev you should know if there is any Beta-keys being released or not. Looking forward to your answer.

Anyone telling you you'll get a Watch_Dogs beta key is trying to scam you.

Hey buddy, Welcome.

At some point I will ask Mr Morin if he would like to do a Q and A when we implement a chat, or can do a live roundtable with selected questions from ask the devs thread over on the forums, and he can answer selected Questions. Cant hurt to ask and if not I'll drive to Montreal and knock on the door and tell em Hurricane is here lol :) And Nik can join with Mr. Morin.

Have a great friday everyone.

I thought so. Still I wanted to believe:( The game looks so d*mn amazing that any chance of playing it early is worth a shot.

Please be aware - you may well see a few 'beta key generators' - or even the full game 'Key generators' - advertised on you tube etc.

They may even show a video of it installing etc..

All of those generators do one thing - mislead you into downloading them - some even install software to compromise your security - and most install pop up / advertising software, which can be a pain to remove.

Windows may not always block these - since you agree to install them - so if you have visited any sites and downloaded such a thing - you should do a full security / anti virus scan.


This is a common ploy to apparently give the full game / beta out - while really it's a installing nothing more than a pain in the butt.


All games suffer from these, so it's something you should be made aware of.

Ubisoft Montreal, like in the case of Far Cry 3.

It should be stellar on PC.
