After disappointing many next-gen early adopters by delaying the game, Ubisoft has revealed that Watch Dogs will finally be released worldwide on May 27th, 2014.
In Watch Dogs, players assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante hero who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) to control almost every element of the city.
