Next-Ish Gen: Watch_Dogs PC Trailer Definitely Not Pug Ugly

The rainiest rain

Remember when Watch_Dogs was first announced back at E3 2012? That sure was something, huh? It was all shiny and "next-gen" and rain-spattered, like a soaked-to-the-bone canine shaking off in perfect slow motion. Subsequent trailers, however, have looked... less great. Not terrible by any means, but just a little plain. Why? I can't say for sure, but I do know that this bells-and-whistles-enabled PC trailer is barking up the right tree. Many textures look more detailed, lighting's taken a definite step up, and I want to go bounce up and down in those puddles like an obnoxious school child. It's still not the best-looking game ever, but I can't complain too much.

As per usual in the never-ending graphical format war, this trailer sees Ubisoft trumpeting its partnership with Nvidia to the high heavens, but hopefully AMD users (read: me) won't end up staring into a puddle of mud.

Watch_Dogs will be out next month - with Ubisoft's irritating Uplay service in tow, unfortunately. Now that it's finally almost here, how are you feeling about this one?
