Watch Dogs E3 trailer is jolly nice CGI

No, CGI trailers don't represent gameplay. Yes, they are fluffy marketing to get you unduly excited. But by gum, the cinematic E3 trailer for Ubisoft's open-world cyber-vigilante 'em up Watch Dogs is awfully pretty, if a bit eerie. We can still enjoy it as an attractive and well-made video for our enjoyment which by pure chance is somehow connected to a video game. Call it tone-setting and world-building, if you must.

As for the actual game, well, our Andrew watched a 30-minute gameplay demo of Watch Dogs in May. While he said it "doesn't appear as if it will be as revolutionary as I had hoped," its near-future Chicago "looks like a fun playground to play in."

Watch Dogs is slated for release on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U on November 19. As the Xbox One and PS4 still don't have launch dates--though that may change at E3--their editions are yet undated. It's another huge Ubisoft multi-studio development, lead by the Montreal gang with help from Paris, Quebec, Bucharest, and Reflections.
