A special edition of Ubisoft’s upcoming techno-thriller Watch Dogs has been spotted in a Dutch advertisement for the game, touting an additional single-player mission for those willing to presumably dig a little deeper into their wallets. The mission, which appears to occur around a series of street races, gives players access to fount of free vehicles through an in-game contact upon completion, as well as discounts on some other, assuredly high-end motors. The Dutch source lists a possible holiday release for the title on November 21st of this year.
Watch Dogs wowed journalists and enthusiasts alike at last year’s E3 with an incredibly slick demo and intriguing potential gameplay systems involving nefarious tampering with a city’s electronic infrastructure, despite the limited information about and access to the game at the time of its reveal at Ubisoft’s press conference. The open-world title is currently listed by Ubisoft as in development for Windows, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and Wii U; while no word has been provided on the game’s presence on Microsoft’s soon-to-be revealed next-gen machine, one can safely assume it will find its way there as well.
Despite Watch Dogs’ passing similarity to Ubisoft’s open-world stabbing simulator, Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft has reported that the game is not being developed on that series’ engine, but rather a new engine developed in-house at Ubisoft Montreal.
