The Watch Dogs: Season Pass PC can be purchased separately here

All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what’s happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it’s not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.

In Watch_Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (CTOS) – and it controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents.

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city’s network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy… and more.

Use the city of Chicago as your ultimate weapon and exact your own style of revenge.

KEY FEATURES

HACK THE CITY

Watch_Dogs takes place in a fully simulated living city where, using your smartphone, you have real-time control over the city’s infrastructure. Trap your enemy in a 30-car pileup by manipulating the traffic lights. Stop a train, and then board it to evade the authorities. Narrowly escape capture by quickly raising a drawbridge. Anything connected to the city’s CTOS can become your weapon.

STREET JUSTICE

Living in inner city Chicago where violence is best answered by violence, you have the skills to take the fight to the streets. Take down enemies by delivering devastating blows with your baton, or experience a shoot-out like never before with a physics simulation that rivals anything in the shooter category. Use a combination of shooting and hacking to gain advantage in any given situation. The streets are designed for you to create your own plan of attack. Overall, you will have access to more than 30 traditional weapons.

HIGH OCTANE DRIVING

Ubisoft Montreal has partnered with studios such as Ubisoft Reflections, the acclaimed studio behind the award-winning Driver series to bring you a game bursting with horsepower. Get behind the wheel of more than 65 vehicles, each with state of the art physics and handling, and explore the massive city while completing missions.

EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL

Disrupt, the all-new game engine dedicated to Watch_Dogs, uses advanced processing and graphics to deliver a stunning visual and an incredibly realistic experience. Disrupt gives you the power to affect the story, the city and the life of the population with your choices creating a ripple effect throughout the city.

DYNAMIC NAVIGATION

Watch_Dogs gives you the ability to not only use the city’s ctOS to your advantage, but the streets as well. In real-world Chicago, cut through buildings or climb to the rooftops to catch your target.

SEAMLESS MULTIPLAYER EXPERIENCE

Discover new levels of interaction, cooperation and confrontation between players thanks to a brand new multiplayer game system that links the single and multiplayer modes into one seamless experience. That means no menus, no loading screens, just instant open world multiplayer action.

STAY CONNECTED WITH A NEW WAY TO PLAY

Take your experience beyond the console with a groundbreaking, real-time, companion game. This innovative mobile platform allows players to connect and compete with friends, even when away from their home console. The Watch_Dogs companion game delivers revolutionary dual-screen gameplay that enables you to play from anywhere, at any time.

Ubisoft don't optimize well at all.

Playing on a 6950, it works brilliantly at 1920 x 1080 with high detail and FXAA. Very smooth, very good looking.

Average FPS?

If you want all the DAY1 missions (rather than different coloured hats and coats) you need to buy the standard game + Breakthrough Pack + Palace Pack + Signature Shot Pack + White Hat Pack
These are in the Digital Delux Edition.

this game isn't a console port, it's a pc game being ported to consoles. This runs well on my 3570K @4.4ghz and a 2gb gtx670 on the high settings preset with 2xmsaa. Itll probarly run better when drivers are more optimized.

What happened to the speedyhen pre orders, any news?

Can't really say (FRAPS etc has problems on my box), but it looks very smooth.

Here's hoping that if/when GTA V eventually comes to PC that it won't be as horribly optimised as the notoriously demanding PC version of GTA IV then! At least GFWL has now all but disappeared though so it's not all bad, haha!

Are you not aware of the issues plaguing Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV that to this day Ubisoft haven't bothered fixing? I agree with you that Far Cry 3 is a beautifully optimised game on PC though.

It is horribly optimized, I have a GTX 760, 8GB RAM and a FX-6300, CPU kind of weak but a good GPU and I'm playing this on low settings. Anything more is just unplayable (and I played Crysis 3 or Far Cry 3 in Ultra). The game still looks pretty good in low to be honest and it's a lot of fun but I'm really hoping they fix this with some patch.

This was developed for PC and that you need a beast to make it run smoothly, good job Ubisoft as always.

And this isn't a console port, other way around.

Playing this now with ASUS 7970 DCUII TOP and FX8350, runs as bad as the AC games. Lots of stuttering and inconsistent fps on 'Optimal settings'. Turned textures from Ultra to High and it seems to have fixed it a bit. Currently capping the FPS at 30 just as I had to with AC games. Lots of rumours for a day one patch to fix it, but I'm sceptical.
Other than that, 10/10 game. Really, really good and thought provoking. Can't recommend highly enough (ignoring the usual Ubi issues).

I saw it on a i7 9xx, 6GB RAM and a 2GB GTX670. All high 1920 x 1080, 2 x TXAA 40-60 FPS. Average is 50+.

Video memory usage immediately hits 2GB. You need 2GB video memory just to barely manage high, you need 3GB to barely manage ultra with no AA at 1080p and you need 4GB to manage Ultra with AA.

If you go over the top and bust through the memory limits the game stutters impossibly but it seemed ok of what I played on high, pretty smooth TBH. New drivers would probably help a bit too.

You run Crysis 3 (and Far Cry 3 for that matter) at Ultra settings on that spec' of PC? I'm guessing it must be running some way short of 60fps then?

Edited by: "KirstyB87" 25th May 2014

FX6300 is pretty slow for a game that will entirely load up the i7 9xx quad core I saw running.

I will emphasise this, to run the game on higher settings you need a fast Intel quad core or one of the higher clocked, newer AMD 8 module CPUs, at least 6Gb of system RAM, and at least 2GB of video memory but preferably more.

Video memory is a massive issue. If you have a 2GB GTX770 you'll almost certainly still be limited to the same settings as a much slower 2GB GTX660 simply because if you went higher you run out of memory and the game stutters as it streams off the HDD.

I read somewhere that Watch Dogs needs a GPU with a minimum 3GB VRAM to run at Ultra settings. I don't know how true that is though.

2xgtx780 were £1000 a few months ago and I struggle to play due to more than 3gb textures being used! stutters like a **** on 8gb ddr3 and a top of the line 5ghz i7!!!! running off a 600mb/s ssd!

I found the source. See the second screenshot as proof of the game requiring 3GB VRAM on Ultra settings...

It's entirely true from first hand experience. The game itself is an absolutely enormous video memory hog, no doubt all because of the new consoles.

Doesn't matter what card you have, if you only have 2Gb of video memory, you can only do 'high' settings tops. The faster 2GB cards like a GTX670/770 etc will manage 40+ FPS easily with a good quad at those settings @ 1080p.

If you have a 3GB card then you should squeeze ultra, but if you enable MSAA which is much more demanding on memory than a post process AA like FXAA or SMAA you'll probably find the game stutters as it'll demand more than 3GB VRAM. Even on a 780ti if it 'only' has 3GB!

Running smooth here, GTX 570 w/ 2500k and 2560*1440. Medium settings

Ditto CoD Ghosts, Wolfenstein: TNO and Titanfall.

Having to design such PC games with taking the new consoles into account is resulting in some poorly optimised games with ridiculously large download/install sizes that mostly don't even look that great. Games such Sleeping Dogs, Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3 are a fraction of the install size relative to those aforementioned games and yet look and run so much better.

I hope this doesn't become the norm for so-called AAA games on PC because it's farcical.

Oh come on, you honestly expect people to believe that you can play Crysis 3 on ultra perfectly fine with a 760 and FX-6300? I can't even run C3 on Ultra without a huge performance drop with 2x 7970's and a 3570k but at least I'm honest about it.

My PC has an AMD GPU and the game runs fine, i.e. around 50-60fps (as best I remember it) at 1080p albeit not with all video settings maxed out. Is it a decent spec' GPU and are you using the latest AMD drivers? Or could the stuttering be due to your PC being bottlenecked elsewhere. e.g. weak CPU, lack of RAM, slow HDD, etc? Also, are you playing an updated version of the game rather than an old non-updated cracked version?

Titanfall says 3GB for the insane textures, but I found it wasn't entirely necessary. This is totally necessary. It's the biggest video memory hog around. The consoles have all that memory lying about that developers will use just for the sake of it whether they need to or not and then not think about how they might combat that on a PC.

I doubt developers will do much or take much care with PC versions. When have they recently?

They will just not bother and wait until everyone has 4GB+ video cards as fairly standard. Give it 18 months and we all probably will.

If you bought one of those 4GB GTX760s or whatever people often said you didn't need that much memory on, you're well in....

I go the game free with my GPU
i7, 2x7950, 16GB 1866Mhz, and a HDD for games.
FPS is good but frame time is poor, so it stutters, single GPU or both.

Titanfall is a model in how not to do a PC port, haha! Regardless of what Respawn Entertainment may claim it is abundantly clear to many that the game was designed around the Xbox One architecture and even now, several months after release, they still haven't fixed PC-specific issues that were present in the beta. Things such as lack of meaningful SLI/Crossfire support, capped frame rate, lack of RAW mouse input, no triple buffering, lobby-based matchmaking, etc. The way the game utilises VRAM is indicative of it being a console port too.

Don't get me wrong, Titanfall is still a great game on PC (in my opinion) and it's leagues better than the Xbox One version... but it could and should be so much better still.

It'll be interesting moving forward to see if such examples of console ports (or games designed with consoles in mind) requiring such amounts of VRAM become more common. That said, we're specifically referring to games at Ultra settings. My point being that turning the settings down to Very High or High will be more VRAM-friendly and will still provide a gaming experience far in excess of what the new consoles get. It's not as bad as it might seem!

Meh, it's a bit annoying needing basically 4GB to get Ultra on Watch Dogs with MSAA when even very expensive fast cards only have 3GB.

Saying that PS4 is the best alternative and that only runs 30FPS 'high' with I believe post process AA and a mere 1600 x 900 resolution. Xbox One is even worse and barely manages over 720p, 1408 x 792 I believe.

Whereas the machine I used had a CPU, RAM and board that was 5 and a half years old, with a couple years old SSD and graphics card that batters Xbox One and comfortably beats the PS4 version.

PC isn't always about ultra all the time, but it's a bonus and sooner rather than later everyone who gets the game on PC will probably get Ultra when they upgrade in the future. Consoles can't.
