As long as it isn't a buggy, underdeveloped mess, I'm down with this game. Looks good.

Thanks for posting them OP

A pet peeve of mine though; can we not label PR bullshots as 'leaked'?

OT: I hate the awful depth of field effect in this game already , seems like it has a really really poor draw distance in all of the videos and screenshots shown.

Well basically I think there is still an embargo on those screens but Machinima.com decided to upload them to their Flickr early .

Yeah... I'm a little concerned at the moment that this is a GTA/AC mishmash and not much else. Hoping for something more.

I think we're gonna be seeing a lot of that this upcoming gen... Deep Down for example had uncanny valley written all over it.

Jesus Christ, look at how smooth everything looks.

Unfortunately, since it's Ubisoft we'll never know if these are actual next-gen/high-end pc screenshots or of they're "a little touched up".

I expect this from the sequel and will keep my expectations as low as possible for this one..

Might be just another one of those Ubi games where the ambition is much bigger than the end product will be.

I'm intrigued by this game. It seems so good (the concept / story really matches the sandbox type game) but I have a bad feeling about it being rapidly boring and repetitive like Assassin's Creed :(

I want to read more about it and I want more gameplay videos so :

previews previews previews previews, yay !

Yeah PC graphics just look so sterile and angular. I prefer my non-physically accurate shaders, sub 720p, sub 30fps experience.

I think it looks so "sterile" due to the really clean bullshot lack of aliasing and the lack of bloom on the lighting. I like that actually.

Why you gotta be such a blockhead?

I was referring to the art style utilized in this game. Doesn't excite me one bit. "Generic" is so overused as a term to describe games, but that's what pops into my head as I watch these screens.

Did not want to be a blockhead.. sorry :(

I think it is just trying to achieve an almost hyper real look. Hard to pick out the artstyle if it is just going for realistic rendering.. that is beyond the character designs.

Ubisoft, confirm once for all that this game is playable offline.

Then my interest could return.

It's early on in Ubisoft's new Watch Dogs demo that the action pauses and we see a static camera angle of a leafy Chicago junction. We're watching the game running in real-time on PlayStation 4, on a dev kit that's scurried away under personal guard as soon as the playthrough is finished.

It kind of is. Right down to the camera movements, like the gentle zoom and lock to an important target (you see it in the gameplay video when Aiden confronts that angry boyfriend).

No, but some of us have seen a fair chunk of the game.

It uses lots of different gameplay elements though. If anything, it feels closer to GTA than AC.

That video isn't PS4 though, it has A and B button icons.
