Watch Dogs from Ubisoft is perhaps the first game to look next-gen in a little long while. It’s kind of a subtle thing if you’re not used to staring at videogames, but watch the lights and the shadows. They feel genuine. This is what’s next — worlds that feel increasingly real in the details, with super complex physics and optics.
The demo’s most likely running on a super-powered PC, though Ubisoft has since announced it’s coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 — still, I wonder just how much of the graphical intensity is going to trickle down to the six-year-old-plus consoles.
Oh, in case you’re wondering what the game is about? Hackers and networks and digital warfare. Of course.
