Watch Dogs footage shows hacking, combat, car chase

Six minutes of edited Watch Dogs footage gives us our first proper look at the game in action since trade event demonstrations.

Although it’s not clear where the GamesHQ video came from, it is said to show footage captured from a PC of PlayStation 4-level power – although even at the highest available quality the video is marred by compression. The demonstrator is using an Xbox 360 controller, apparently.

I think the car chase section is particularly worth a look, as for all its open-world experience Ubisoft Montreal hasn’t done a lot of vehicle action work; I suspect we’re seeing Ubisoft Reflections’ hand here, thanks to the publisher’s multi-studio approach.

Watch Dogs is expected on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and the next Xbox console later this year.

Thanks, Joystiq.
