Watch Dogs’ Creators Have a Conversation in This Video
Watch Dogs will be coming to us this November, which, as you may have noticed, is a relatively long time from now. Thankfully, PlayStation has launched an ongoing video series called “Conversations with Creators,” which will focus on PlayStation 4 development, and takes a look at Watch Dogs in the first episode.
The video introduces us to Watch Dog development team members Dominic Guay, senior producer, and Jonathan Morin, creative director. These two give us some details on how Watch Dogs is being developed for a wide array of systems, but how the experience will be different on the PlayStation 4.
They talk about the importance of connectivity when it comes to the PlayStation 4 and how that lends itself well to their vision of Watch Dogs and the always-connected nature of its game world. They want people to be able to interact with players through their mobile phones, even when the other player is playing on their console, letting people seamlessly connect with each other across all platforms.
Another goal for them is to be able to offer a seamless transition from single-player to multiplayer without the need for any menus or waiting, which will give the player a smooth gaming experience in which player-created moments become memorable.
Watch the video below and let us know your thoughts on the vision for Watch Dogs and how the PlayStation 4 will help facilitate it. Look out for the game when it drops on November 19th, 2013 for PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. No dates for the PlayStation 4 version have been announced, but we’ll also see if an Xbox 720 version is in the works on May 21st, 2013.
