Evading the cops and using tablets in Watch Dogs

Aiden Pearce is up to his old tricks again, getting into all sorts of bother in the PlayStation 4 demo of Watch Dogs. Pearce is shown trying to keep a low profile as he makes his way to a chum who, like Pearce himself, is being hunted by the authorities. 

The super-hacker drives around Chicago as stealthily as a man in a big car can, before arriving in a coffee shop just as an alert goes out on the TV telling people to call the police should they spot him. An annoying do-gooder does exactly this, but not before his call gets intercepted by Pearce, and his phone is slapped to the ground. 

In the apartment of his chum, Pearce uses his hacking skills to distract the cops, allowing his beardy pal to sneak past them. Once again fleeing the police -- it's a full-time job -- we get the chance to see Watch Dog's tablet integration. Pearce calls in help from another friend, in reality a dev with a tablet, who is able to interact with the game and hamper police progress.

Eventually the authorities catch up with their quarry, but as he puts his hands up, he shorts out the lights throughout the entire city, giving him the perfect opportunity to escape.

I feel that we've been a bit saturated with Watch Dogs videos since it was first announced, yet it still managed to impress me yet again -- even if I'm starting to get a bit tired of seeing it, and I'd rather just play it. The tablet/co-op feature was a nice touch, but doesn't seem all that integral to the game, and while the city-wide blackout was impressive, I do have fears that such scenes are heavily scripted.

A look at Watch Dogs' PlayStation-exclusive content

Ubisoft: It'll take the average player 35-40 hours to beat Watch Dogs

Do we still care about game lengths? Really, truly care? (I say "we" as if we're some sort of hive mind, which obviously and thankfully isn't the case.) Probing for Watch Dogs information on Twitter, a fan asked how long it w...more

Early arrival in Chicago? Watch Dogs may be getting a closed beta

Watch Dogs will be late on Wii U to 'make full use of the platform'

I'm increasingly of the opinion that nothing short of a miracle will save the delayed Wii U version of the already-delayed Watch Dogs. Ubisoft announced a May 27, 2014 release date for every other version of the game today. W...more

You can still get a Watch Dogs PS4 bundle (in Europe)

Watch Dogs finally has a new release date -- May 27. That trailer also seems to have a bit of new information unless I'd just forgotten it. Typically, the lead's wife is killed and that's the impetus for revenge. There's a G...more

Risen 3's teaser trailer looks vaguely like Dante's Inferno

The official teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords is out now, and it involves a lot of pretty CG animation and generic combat. It's got all the hallmarks of a traditional Western RPG: darkness, big swords, and copiou...more

Get a taste of the R. Lee Ermey Call of Duty voice pack

Next week, Infinity Ward is set to drop two voice packs for multiplayer -- Snoop Dogg, and R. Lee Ermey. While Snoop's studio visit was previewed already, Ermey's wasn't -- it didn't even have a price or date confirmed, in fact. But now we know that it's going to hit at the same time as Snoop, on April 22nd for $2.99. Check out the video in full, and hear the iconic drill sergeant for yourself.more
