What's up Watch_Dogs fans!

I've been wanting to do this for quite a while now... ask you what you'd like to know about the game.
So here it it! My Official Q&A Thread!!!

I assume I don't have to go too much into details, you know what this is right? You've got questions, I've got answers... I know I don't have to remind you that I won't be able to answer all of your questions right away... you know that right? But this will greatly help me to organize all your questions and better plan for answers.

So ask away...

- Even if you've already asked it in another thread, it'll make things easier for me to have it here.
- Do try to keep your questions short and concise... please.
- For now, we'll limit the number of questions to 5 each. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

So that's it... Thanks, and I'm really looking forward to reading them.

Cheers!

Nik

Will hacking be something that you need to do on your own (sort of as a side mission or add on type thing), or will it be automated, with all functions available from the start (or perhaps availability will come with game progression)?

1) What is the setup powering the E3 2012 demo ?
A single GTX680 ?

2) What will the recommended system requirements be ? At this point I suppose there's no answer.

3) Will the game support DX11 ? I hope they focus on the DX11 API exclusively.

4) Who is that woman ?

5) Will the game be available on Steam ?


Who's making the PC version?
PC is the lead SKU so I would assume Ubi Montreal.

1. Is Watch Dogs REALLY open world? I mean like GTA4? Or is it partial open world. Means that if I go to a certain spot a script triggers and a mission will start? Can I go anywhere I want?
2. Will there be (annoying) quicktime events ingame (press this specific button now or you are dead)?
3. Is hacking based on skill or based on time? Means... I must solve a puzzle to hack or I must stay close to my target to hack him?

Thanks NIK for this awesome thread! http://ist2-1.filesor.com/pimpandhost.com/8/4/4/3/84431/1/o/g/Y/1ogYk/thumb1.gif

1. Does the game require internet 24/7 to run? (I think the term is REM or something)
2. What are the requirements, for PC, to run the game?
3. How many hours of content for both side and main missions?
4. Will there be chicken, in game, for you to eat? (Just to throw an oddball question out there) ;)
5. For which system, are you going to purchase the game on?

Thanks for keeping us posted! :cool:

One question: Is there a magic pocket just like GTA's game where we can store an Assault rifle, 10 grandes, a RPG and 4 snipers OR are we gonna only have the 9mm & sometimes assault guns that we can take on the ground?

Actually if it's the first option that would be really really really bad because it would'nt fit AT ALL with the game and also it would much more realistic and immersive to only have a few simple weapon instead of a whole army.

Thaks for response! ^^

Will this game be on Steam? If so a preorder or day of release game?

Also what are the specs, or around about going to be?

Is there co-op so you can do the game/ campaign with friends?

What is multiplayer? Team Deathmatch, work together? Deathmatch? Capture the flag? Freeroam?

Hi Nik, thanks for doing this! Watch Dogs is looking like an excellent game. Here are my questions:

1. Recent there was a video showcasing how the PS4 version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XYbCvcpiExI) is "more advanced" than the other platforms. Where does the PC version fit in, closer to PS3 or PS4? I expect the PC version should be on par with the PS4 version, but the video implies other wise.

2. Does this games multiplayer use P2P or dedicated servers? If it uses P2P, what steps are being take to avoid the connection issues that have been prevalent in past games that use it, eg: Ghost Recon Future Soldier and Far Cry 3.

3. Which studio inside of Ubisoft is responsible for the PC version of the game?

4. Does this game require a persistent internet connection to play?

Thanks! :)

If we can change it please can you put some Reese's costume for the fans of Person of Interest ?

01. Will the game have a New Game+ mode where we'll be able to play again with all our abilities from a previous playthrough?

02. Will we be able to change the difficulty level of the game (easy, normal, hard)?

03. Will "Hacking" have different levels of difficulty or once a "skill" is learned everything will be hackable by the press of one button (like it seems to be according to the trailers released until now)?

04. Will the player (as Aiden) be able to use other devices such as a (desktop) computer to make different and maybe more complex actions or everything will revolve around the Profiler?

05. What level of character customization is available for the player (change clothes, etc)?

Hi I don't know if it's been asked already, but I was wondering what will be the differences between current gen and next gen version of the game ?
Will this be only a matter of graphic settings, amount of NPCs / cars you can see on screen, or will current gen miss some elements, gameplay element ?

Cause we can't all buy a PS4 ...

Graphics will be different, wind affecting rain will be absent from PS3, amount of NPCS will be decreased, amount of NPC bios will be decreased and more repetitive on PS3, Draw distance will not be as far, stuff like floating leaves may be absent.

And the rest of my answer is dependent on what you mean by "gameplay elements". The story will be the same, so will mission design and layout. Its the same world, just with added detail missing.

I hope it's not too late to post questions, as I have a few;

1.) Will there be any robots to Hack? For instance, surveillance/bomber drones, Counter IED robots, maybe even something a bit more lethal at an up close and personal level?

2.) (only applicable if question one is a yes) can we craft robots? Maybe something small like a roomba with a camera?

3.) Smart homes?

4.) Could we hack/disable things like pacemakers?

I still want to hear them say that Ubisoft Kiev is nowhere near the project!

You and me both. But this would be weird for them to be involved on the lead SKU.

The official word is Ubi Montréal is handling the PC version and that's very good news. We can hope for a well optimized game this time around.

I assume the PC version will sport every "next-gen" features of the next Xbox/PS4 versions, basically all next-gen SKU should be on par and I'm fine with that.

Damn if only I could know what was the rig powering the recent presentations...

05-13-2013, 02:46 PM

1 - How Watch Dogs plans on tackling A.I behavior? Are there any kind of innovations?

Most games I ever played that give you any option to choose a "stealth" route on missions donīt make it any more interesting to go down this path instead of shooting anyone on sight because of the lack of challenge, with extremely unrealistic A.I behavior, e.g Enemy A.I not being remotely aware of your actions unless youīre right in front of them or 2 feet away; silly repetitive patterns of movement by the guards where all the player needs to do is watch for a few seconds and hop from one cover to the next; or they entering a state of "suspiscious" after you throw a grenade on a place, and a few seconds later theyīre back to their "normal" state as if nothing happened.

2 - Is the weather fully dynamic or scripted?

Can Aiden Pearce be arrested by the police in game or does he always meet his demise?.

Firefly00
05-14-2013, 08:58 PM
We already know that stealth is a perfectly viable (and often encouraged) playstyle... which leads me to wonder: when it comes to stealth takedowns, will we taking a page from Dishonored (or the upcoming SC: Blacklist) and have the option of going non-lethal?

Related: given everything else available for sale at that gun store (I could have sworn I saw a Vector SMG and a rifle looking like one of Barrett's spawn), will we be able to get a tranq pistol (see: one of the bolt types available for the mini-crossbow back in the original Deus Ex)?

After all, a big part of the game, as I understand, is the world and its inhabitants reacting to Aiden's actions - for example, a tendency to leave collateral casualties would result in police responses not only being more aggressive, but escalating more quickly to higher levels.

2) What feature(if any) will the touchpad be used for?
3) what is the phone used for?
4) Is there a large amount of variety with the side missions?
5) How many different types of cars/bikes are in the game?

Will hacking be something that you need to do on your own (sort of as a side mission or add on type thing), or will it be automated, with all functions available from the start (or perhaps availability will come with game progression)?

So hacking... As you probably saw recently, all hacking functions won't be available right from the start. You'll have to earn the "rights" to hack by completing a variety of missions around Chicago. As for automatic hacking, we are making hacking fast and readily available... not while sitting behind a screen for hours. But there will also be variety. Hope that answers your question.

I think I will have a superb gaming experience, firstly congratulations watch dogs
I tried, but I could not find your e-mail here I am writing to you ulşamaya
people no longer want and enjoy myself with watch dogs can kill
now people are not just a few thousand pixels
game people live longer lives
of advice you will
Let the children and families of people's identification cards one-emotional bond with the characters just kill them by making them ineffective bring full tersiine
2 - cats, dogs and stray animals in the game you get your ... (there is no gta) gta game animals, no one, not even 10 years on the street
3-a life that all of us that the characters in the game feel more pixels does not occur
4 - Let's go to jail in the game when we process a crime (there is no GTA) *** escaping from prison by giving money or get rid of the object of this game is much more exciting, and we have done a few that we do not shoot with a few mouse clicks, a result that allows us to see what we were doing really

I trust you and us in front of the computer at the end of 5-someone will offer the opportunity to experience real-life feel to it

Question:
So. The nodes for CtoS are in a high security area. Obviously they understand that this is something important and should not fall into anyone's hands.
Yet when Aiden goes in guns blazing, noone thinks to do anything about it?
Why isn't the system in that area shut down? Or debugged? Or moved to a backup?
It would be more believable if Aiden was required to ghost these levels, but I guess that would put the action gamers off...

Other Questions:
So we already know that as with other open world games, there are multiple 'routes' that the player can take.
Basically, stealth or guns. (Like every other game of this ilk...)

What other options are there?
Eg. Can you hack turrets? (I hope not. I hope Chicago doesn't have turrets just standing around...)
Can you use security cameras to focus in on a criminal activity and send the feed to law enforcement so as to initiate a response?
Can you... put false information of your target on the police intranet, thus causing him to be arrested?
Can you discover new information about a crime and use that to reopen a trial that had falsely acquitted a murderer?
Can you rob an evil organisation of its assets (EA maybe...) by transferring funds from its account?
Or move funds to support the organisation of your choice?

Can you borrow books from the public library under someone else's name??? *shudder*

I also liked the part where they actually run a newsflash of you when you were buying guns.
How prominent will that feedback mechanism be?
If you do one of the above (eg. find new info to reopen an old case), will you catch news reports of that while you're walking around town?

How far reaching can events get?
When you raise traffic barriers to prevent police cars from chasing you, will you see news reports of "Police sues town council for faulty barriers" in days to come?

Ubisoft never supports Linux sadly. I really wish they would too. (Unless you are talking about Wine?) I'd love to see this game on Steam for Linux, that would almost guarantee a purchase from me. May as well make it a Q&A question:

Will this game be released for Linux using Steam?

My Questions for Developers

1. How many real chicago landmarks did you add into the environment?
2. Did you add michigan ave and water tower and the new trump tower?
3. Did you add navy pier and the condos around it.
4. Did you add wrigley field and us cellular stadium and also soldier field?
5. In the game is all vehicles hackable or drivable? how big is the map?

Last question
did you all add the whole L Train system where it has the Red Line, Brown Line, Purple Line, Blue Line, Green Line, Pink Line. where also you have Metra Trains and also CTA Bus System. Also take into account Pace bus system if you are going outside the city limits

Red Line : Goes from Howard ST (North) to downtown Chicago
Brown Line : Goes way north to downtown. (mostly i take this to wilson st for Truman College
Blue Line : Goes from Ohare Airport to downtown (Metra Station)
Green Line : Goes to Midway Airport into the loop
Pink Line (Cant remember)


I really cannot wait to see how realistic and authentic it looks compared to chicago dynamics since i live here. First preview (trailer) i seen of this game i about drooled since not many games take place in chicago or use a chicago type of environment mostly they are NY, LA and other places that is great you all took the time to respect chicago environment, granted a lot of movies are filmed here and made here............

so here are my questions :D please answer if you can
1. are there going to be collectibles?
2. animals like dogs, cats, birds or horses? ( maybe police on horses)?
3.can we be arrested and the story goes? , can we take human shield or take hostages, bank robbery?
4. and this one is very important: do the police while chasing us drive on pavement or on people just to catch us?
4th question is very important because in many games this **** happens, cops don't care about pedestrians and without thinking they kill them.

These are the biggest questions in my mind.

1) Will the story be good and will we care about these characters?

2) How much of a downgrade will gamers have to endure if they can only afford to play Watch Dogs on current gen consoles?

1. Does the game require internet 24/7 to run? (I think the term is REM or something)
2. What are the requirements, for PC, to run the game?
3. How many hours of content for both side and main missions?
4. Will there be chicken, in game, for you to eat? (Just to throw an oddball question out there) ;)
5. For which system, are you going to purchase the game on?

Thanks for keeping us posted! :cool:

I had the same question about the internet connection that you did so looked around and found a joystiq article that said:

The multiplayer component of Watch Dogs will have an element of player invasion, though its overall extent and direction has yet to be described by Ubisoft. Dominic Guay, Senior Producer at Ubisoft Montreal, insisted that the game can be played "completely offline if you want." (Expect to hear that protection phrase often in the wake of SimCity.)

Here is a link to the article -> http://www.joystiq.com/2013/05/10/watch-dogs-multiplayer-mode-will-have-element-of-invasion/

Will hacking be something that you need to do on your own (sort of as a side mission or add on type thing), or will it be automated, with all functions available from the start (or perhaps availability will come with game progression)?

Some hacking functions are available at the start and you will unlock more hacking functions as you progress through the story

2) How is the hacking of peoples bank accounts limited (if at all). I mean you can buy guns and other stuf. If it is so easy to steel money, then what is the challange?

Dunno if the topic is still active and questions are being answered but here I go...

I had the chance to talk with a few people that got to play this game, they generally like the game except for one important aspect and that's the driving. They said the driving was too arcade-ish like lets say Saints Row The Third or Sleeping Dogs. I have a feeling that this approach to the driving part will be a pretty big letdown for the game. If you, Nik, have the means to contact the devs maybe you can bother them with my two cents, two valuable cents if you ask me.

I was 'nudged' to ask this HERE, and so here I go. :)

In the Ubiblog post '61 highlights from 30 minutes of gameplay', Gary Steinman notes that when Aiden stops a murder,
and then later chases down and kills the thug, his reputation gains '+35'.

My question then becomes, is that a flat increase, or is there a positive/negative aspect?
That is to say, will the +35 'merely'(not so merely, but...) make Aiden more notorious, and recognizable for civilians/cops/whatever,
or does it make him more well liked for having prevented a murder, and then dealt swift 'street justice'(people tend to LOVE a vigilante
as long as they're not the target)? With a commiserate negative aspect for, for instance, running down civilians or similar DROPPING
his reputation?

What do you expect from an "open-world game", simulation driving! As long as it's not as bad as GTAIV and I don't flip my car every time I hit a corner going above 80mph i'll be fine! It seems to me they are aiming towards the more arcade style of driving because there is so much going on at once, with all the hacking and what not. The simplicity of the driving will help all the other gameplay mechanics.

2)How will vehicle physics be handled?
3)Is car customization available?
4)How much focus is there into the story?
5)How deep are the characters?I know Aiden won't die.Cos' there's a sequel in Devs mind if the fans like this game very much and like to continue with more.
6)Can Aiden swim?

I have a rather simple question for you Nik.
Will the PC version of Watch Dogs have the technical capabilities of the current gen (PS3/Xbox360) or the next gen (PS4/XboxOne).
That is a thing I really wonder, because actually, the PC has the technical possibilities to handle the next gen level.
Or will there be a big patch later on tweaking the PC version possibilities more in the direction of next gen?

PC is the lead SKU so yeah, and it will scale down to the current-gen as well so that low/medium end PCs will be able to play the game.
http://www.vg247.com/2013/02/27/watch-dogs-pc-is-lead-platform/

It will be at least on par with the PS4/XB1 versions. But it will surely require a very good rig if you want max settings at 1080p.

I got another question.

Let's assume Aiden has to deal with normal security guards guarding and restricted area.

If Aiden, or rather you as player step into this are, will they send you out and warn you not to come in a second time, or will they start shooting at you right away.
Because if not that would be a suggenstion I think.

Provided Aiden hasn't done anything wrong, hasn't hurt anyone, will they immediately start to fire at him or will they say "Hey sir, leave the area immediately!" and if you refuse threaten you with their gun, giving you the option to surrender or refuse, and then they shoot at you.

Because that is a big point for me in terms of believability of the city. Security Guards or Cops don'T just shoot at you because you enter an area you shouldn't, they only shoot at you when you are getting violent (hurting/killing people) or if you refuse to leave the are after they warned you.

I hope you can answer this one.

Since Aiden moves withing a living, breathing city and is not a all bad guy, but something in between, a vigilante.
So this would be very important for me. NO shooting right away, but based on the situation either just warning verbally or threatening Aiden with their guns.

I thin I have seen something like this in a gameplay video lately, but I don't know how exactly the system works so I thought I am going to ask.

Multiplayer Sounds cool.
But what really interests me is:

1. Will we hack into a random players game if we don'T want to hack into the game of a friend?
2 How will that work? Will we be able to "log" into the game of someone else, will we then jump into his area or can we come up on the other side of the city, how does that work?
3. If the player hacks into my game and starts disturbing something, like for example causing a crash or shooting someone, will I be able to see that / recognize it. Will the chaos he is making be in my game actually or how does that work?

For all we know the main platform could have switched to PS4/XB1. Battlefield 3 had PC as the lead platform for some time then they switched to consoles.
Nothing is set in stone at this point, but I'm confident Watch Dogs will be stellar on PC, as long as you have the requisit hardware to make the most out of it.

check the UBIBLOG the say in an interview there that we will not be able to fly planes.

a paragraph from the blog :

Chicago is also one of the most vertical cities in America, which plays a prominent role in the gameplay. “You can’t fly planes or anything like that,” Guay smiles. “That’s not really relevant to what we’re trying to do with Watch Dogs.” That said, the team was definitely inspired by Assassin’s Creed when it came to vertical gameplay. “If the player sees that he can climb somewhere, we want him to be able to do that,” Guay says. “He can go pretty high if he wants. As long as the player can figure out how to go higher, the technology can support that.”

Dome500
07-02-2013, 01:32 PM
1.-2. What if police catches you? Are you going to the jail or you will "respawn" on the last checkpoint?


A follow-up to this one:

Will we be able to "escape from prison" as in hacking and sneaking our of the prison cell in the police station (just a little police station, nothing big.)

Because that would open up the possibility for a cool escape, would open up the possibility of the news reporting about your escape and the escape adding to your reputation in the city (the fact that you are an escaped "convict" + did you kill police officers or just knock them out or avoid them? (all possibilities in Watch Dogs from what I have seen)).

If you don't want to annoy the player / don't want to force the escape sequence you could make it optional. If the police arrests you you will then be asked "auto-escape or manual escape?" and you can choose one.

I assume you are confused by the AC4 case, I don't believe we know anything to assume that it will be the same for Watch Dogs.
The fact that Kiev is working on the PC SKU and that it's alledgedly the "lead" platform (what does that really mean ?) are not mutually exclusive.

Why couldn't they handle the main version ?

Regarding Watch_Dogs Ubisoft Montreal is working on the "next-gen" versions (XB1/PS4/PC) and another studio/team is tasked with making the current-gen versions (360/PS3/Wii U).

I think you are going to like this :
https://www.facebook.com/UbisoftKiev/info
On their official Facebook page there is a mention of AC4 PC but not Watch_Dogs ? Guess what that means ? ;)
Far Cr 3 was handled by Ubi Montreal as well and it was a extremely polished PC port in spite of some optimization issues.

1. If you are driving a car and see a car you like going the opposite way, how far behind you can it get before it de-spawns?
2. What about in front of you?

I ask these because in Saints Row: The Third, many times I did a u-turn immediately and it wouldn't have gone more than 5 car lengths away and it would have already de-spawned. Sometimes all I had to do was sit in the middle of an intersection and just turn the camera around and around to spawn new cars to get the one I want.

3. Will pre-order bonuses be available for purchase after launch on the PC at some point? Amazon isn't including the PC and the new Xbox in the pre-order bonus list and I'd like to get that gun.
4. One of Gamestop's pre-order bonuses says that after completing a mission, it will give you an Investigation Bonus to unlock exclusive investigation opportunities inside the network. Can you please explain or give an example of what kind of opportunities it's talking about?
5. If I buy the PC version on a DVD instead of a download, can I have the choice between verifying that I own the game through the internet and inserting the disc in the tray?

I can answer that. In one of the demos and in the out of control trailer, you can see aiden look at purchasing guns and firing a non-pistol weapon, respectively.

I have also seen a video of aiden shopping in a cash and carry, and under some items it said: 'can be used to make explosive device' ,etc.

I'm really excited for Watch Dogs and have been keeping an eye on the different editions. Now that the Limited Edition is announced for NA, it just seems lackluster compared to DEDSEC, even Vigilante in some aspects and was wondering if I bought the DEDSEC Edition from an EU retailer , will EU game codes work in NA and exclusive stuff be in English such as; art book, soundtrack, etc...?

Thanks.

Generally, EU versions of a game work on NA consoles, and vice versa. Best to try google for a general idea first though

If your question is: what is the result of getting hacked/ hacking someone else, then here is the best answer I can give you.

I watched a gameplay video featuring the multiplayer, and the dev said that once you hack someone, you add them to your "network." Don't exactly know what that means, but what ever.

Here's a video I'm referring to: http://www.ign.com/videos/2013/06/24/watch-dogs-multiplayer-and-second-screen-interview-e3-2013

How is the car damage model in the game, is it realistic, or scripted or somewhere in between?
Is the entire city of Chicago open to explore, or is it a scaled down version of Chicago?

Yeah, I think you're right, because I read somewhere that you can also explore the outskirts of Chicago, including the lake near Chicago, so it should be huge. I can't wait to drive a boat in that lake, and cause tons of car crashes by making all traffic lights green.

Hey, i was wondering how we could go about suggesting new locations for Watch dogs live. I live close to a major city but there are no sites for me to hack near by. I read the FAQ and it did say that the more people who log on in an area will get sites but while I was having a look around the map, I noticed 2 things. One, a town similar in size just south of my location has tones of sites to hack and Two, there are 2 hacking sites that are so far out in the middle of nowhere that im almost sure they are on someones farm land...

So my question is...Can we suggest new locations for hack sites at all or are we stuck with going to someones farm to hack something(as my case is.)

Question...Watchdogs is suppose to be a launch day release...PS4 announced it's release date Nov 15. The game should come out then...but nobody is listing the release date for the game for the PS4 yet..?? Is the game coming out on Nov 15th for the PS4? I preordered the game seperately along with the PS4 so I can play the PS4 right away...I hope like all that I don't have to wait a week or 2 or longer before the game comes out to play the system. Sony would have a lot of angry consumers on their hands if that happened with other titles as well...I'm hoping the sites just haven't updated their stuff as of yet. I

This is ludicrous. This thread has been open since the beginning of May and not one question has been answered. It's August now. When this thread was started, we had 6 months to release, now we have 3, and still no questions have been answered. Perhaps this is why there are so many more people on the AC forums. I can't wait for this game, but it's pretty rude to start something (like a Q&A) and never get around to finishing it.

It's cool..Found out my answer from EBGames yesterday..They said that the Sony Rep told them that Watchdogs would be out 3-4 days after the system launches...Tues Nov 19th for the PS4. Sucks..suppose to be a launch title and they are releasing the game 4 days after the Launch date? That's not a Launch title...grrr. I told them that I thought that people who bought the PS4 Watchdogs bundle got the best deal then and he said no, that people still would not get their PS4's till the game releases. Now that's crappy of UBI Soft. I can get the PS4 at Launch on Friday but can't even play a game on it till another 4 days afterwards. Guess it's not long to wait but I just think that's stupid...Game should be released Nov 15th when the system is released..Why it's suppose to be called a "Launch" title...

What's up Watch_Dogs fans!

I've been wanting to do this for quite a while now... ask you what you'd like to know about the game.
So here it it! My Official Q&A Thread!!!

I assume I don't have to go too much into details, you know what this is right? You've got questions, I've got answers... I know I don't have to remind you that I won't be able to answer all of your questions right away... you know that right? But this will greatly help me to organize all your questions and better plan for answers.

So ask away...

- Even if you've already asked it in another thread, it'll make things easier for me to have it here.
- Do try to keep your questions short and concise... please.
- For now, we'll limit the number of questions to 5 each. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

So that's it... Thanks, and I'm really looking forward to reading them.

Cheers!

Question:
So. The nodes for CtoS are in a high security area. Obviously they understand that this is something important and should not fall into anyone's hands.
Yet when Aiden goes in guns blazing, noone thinks to do anything about it?
Why isn't the system in that area shut down? Or debugged? Or moved to a backup?
It would be more believable if Aiden was required to ghost these levels, but I guess that would put the action gamers off...

Other Questions:
So we already know that as with other open world games, there are multiple 'routes' that the player can take.
Basically, stealth or guns. (Like every other game of this ilk...)

What other options are there?
Eg. Can you hack turrets? (I hope not. I hope Chicago doesn't have turrets just standing around...)
Can you use security cameras to focus in on a criminal activity and send the feed to law enforcement so as to initiate a response?
Can you... put false information of your target on the police intranet, thus causing him to be arrested?
Can you discover new information about a crime and use that to reopen a trial that had falsely acquitted a murderer?
Can you rob an evil organisation of its assets (EA maybe...) by transferring funds from its account?
Or move funds to support the organisation of your choice?

Can you borrow books from the public library under someone else's name??? *shudder*

I also liked the part where they actually run a newsflash of you when you were buying guns.
How prominent will that feedback mechanism be?
If you do one of the above (eg. find new info to reopen an old case), will you catch news reports of that while you're walking around town?

How far reaching can events get?
When you raise traffic barriers to prevent police cars from chasing you, will you see news reports of "Police sues town council for faulty barriers" in days to come?

Awesome questions, I guess they never got answered tho? I hope this game is really that dynamic.

Because he has to wait for the dev team to formulate official answers, unless a statement on a particular issue has already been prepared. Unlikely as it is at this late stage, in some cases the dev team may not have decided yet what they going to do with the game. Such things as background music, menu layout and so forth can in some cases not be finalised until right before release.

but I will post it in here aswell. :)
I am about to get a new computer and I was wondering if I should get an Intel i5 Quadcore or an Intel i7 Quadcore with Hyperthreading for enjoying the next gen games in all their glory. I was about to decide after the first benchmarks of Watch Dogs as one of the first new Next-Gen titles. It's good that you take further time to polish up the game but for that part it's frustrating aswell. :P So, could you give any hint if the game benefits from those additional Threads an i7 has? Crysis 3 for example got quiet a nice performance boost from activated SMT.
Long story, short question:
Would I get the most out of Watch Dogs with an i5 Quadcore or an i7 Quadcore with Hyperthreading? :) Something like "You will see a major increase in minimum FPS." or what ever else would please me. :D
I hope you can answer that with your internal testbuilds yet. =)

Question #1
Watch Dogs seems like a very complicated game. In general when complicated is used to describe a game it means work not fun. Will we be shown how to play this game effectively in single player or by some other means?

Question #2
Watch Dogs seems very unfinished. Will you be giving IGN a interview with one of your Watch Dog development team members when things are closer to being finished?

Question #3
The small piece of the game Ubisoft did let us see showed the main character killing two or three guys with a pistol. The weapon looked like a 9mm hand gun but sounded like a cap gun when shot. I am guessing and hoping that the weapon sound will be fixed? This is extremly improtent to me.

Ok, I've had a message a month ago + about you guys working on the app to make it compatible with IOS 7, so far there has been no update to the app and i'm getting tired of having to turn my location for watchdogs off and on so it connects properly.

The whole issue is the gps signal. The game knows where I am on the map, but when i move from the place i had it set last, it let's me try to hack then says "out of range" though the map and my radar is in the range it should be, so there's some problem in the code to do with the gps signal.

Either way, I was wondering when this was gonna be update(If it's ever gonna be updated).

Seems there's more time to work on the app with the game itself being delayed.

Hopefully i can get an answer about this, as I enjoy the app very much, but it's tiring doing the location on and off all the time.

Another question of mine is: If someone hacks your phone in-game, does it really matter if you chase them down? Can you just forget about it or will it limit/hinder you in some way?

Another question of mine is: Will there be a way to collect cars that you like and keep them safe? Like a garage, And can you repair a damaged car from your garage?

Yes there is, via the Underground car contact Underground Car Contact - Watch Dogs Wiki (http://watch-dogs.wikia.com/wiki/Underground_Car_Contact)

I'm not sure about repairs though, maybe you should keep an eye on; http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/801327-Vehicle-repairs-Forums

You can, but there will be consequences more often than not. Depending on people's attitudes around you, you may be reported to the police or attacked directly.

Hope this helps.

I don't think the game is made to support mindless play styles, not without consequences anyway.

A player can't until gaining ctOS access. They can only use electric items that aren't controlled by the ctOS prior to gaining access.

Yes, but even if those electric items arenīt linked to the ctOS system, they should be linked to another system as the ctOS connected devices I think.

I have studied Industrial Engineering specialized in electronics and I can assure you that any device must be linked to a sort of system in order to hack it. I donīt care if that system isnīt the ctOS, but it must be connected to a system(some kind of smart grid) that controls the grid if we want to hack that system and those devices in our favour.

False. Car alarms a good example of this, their electronics systems work totally independently, because there are no advantages to adding them to a smart grid or connected system. The same thing applies to other commercial products such as garage doors, forklifts or electronic gates.

And thatīs why car alarms canīt be 'hacked', at least by software in most of the cars, because they donīt use an OS, except for the new ones that even call the police automatically. They have their own internal grid prepared to sound when the sensors detect some kind of intrusion. Thatīs another thing I would like to know about in game footage. The ability to 'hack' a car could not be possible, at least by software again, if they arenīt connected to some kind of OS(maybe an OS of the cars company). I want to think that the cars you can 'hack' in game are like some of the modern ones that do have an OS of some kind.

Yeah, they can even hack mobiles out of range or in flight mode. But, anyway, they are computers so that isnīt unusual.

Will we be able to skip missions like GTA V?*
I'm not a hardcore gamer (I play around 2 hours a week due to my work) and not being able to skip missions in AC4 has stopped me from completing the game. I was stuck for hours in "Nothing is True" until I've given up.*
I've pre-ordered Watch Dogs and I really hope that we will have the choice of skipping missions in case we can't finish it after certain number of times.*
Thanks!

Peter2014_
02-22-2014, 03:09 PM
This is also a point that was mentioned in a different site regarding AC4. I hope this will be avoided in Watch Dogs :D


It never shows messages to tell us e.g. this mission / area / viewpoint is not available until further story progression.

Apart from this Kingston viewpoint, also the last naval contract and the two assassination contracts that require the diving bell. Enough to spook anyone to think that can be glitches if they like doing all side activities before the main story.

May I ask, during this footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_742139555&feature=iv&src_vid=yEHwaScI6es&v=c2ltK8dNuNk there's the moment when AP causes the perp to hit the road blockers, so what would happen if you were to simply hang around; how would the NPCs react to the accident (would they call the police/ambulance) and would you witness the police take the phelon into custody?

It's this part of the game I am looking forward to; how the AI reacts to your actions.

hey nik how are u doin? Ihave a question about replayability. seeing as the only real compairason to this game is gta I was woundering will I be playing this game for a month or will i be done the main campaign and doing side/random encounter missions for 4 week? any information you could provide would be helpful.

in most games you eventually run out of missions and things to do, but a few rare open world games allow missions to be generated randomly and give you things to do over and over again, even if these are the same things but in an open world they happen differently because of the game settings.

anyone knows if there are missions that are challenging (which means not just kill or beat up one dude and be done with it in 1 minute) and involve shootouts or chases that are infinitely created (as apposed to a finite set of missions that you can complete and never see again in the game world)?
