PlayStation 4 Multiplayer Feature Shown In Watch Dogs Demo

By   /   3 years ago

The PlayStation 4 unveiling lived up to the expectations, the console offers so much it is hard to pick just one thing. Ultimately, it came down to showing off some demos of the launch titles to win the crowd over.

Watch Dogs, one of the most anticipated games of this year, was definitely one fans were expecting to see given its lush graphics and game play. The demo of the game, however, also showed off something viewers dazzled by the graphics overlooked. It was the fact that someone else was controlling one of the security cameras near the end of the demo.

In an interview with Kotaku, Creative Director, Jonathan Morin revealed more on the subject,

Yeah, that’s a nice observation. Not everybody picked that up. Watch Dogs is all about hyperconnectivity. To me, that has to mean all the time and anywhere. So yes, other people are out there all the time, when you don’t expect it. Whether you’re playing single-player or multiplayer, it’s happening. You’re saying asynchronous but it’s much more real-time than that…

When pressed on to say whether that was, in fact, another player interacting with the game, Morin replied,

Yes, exactly. There’s more detail to come on that.

Also brought up in the interview was the question of what differences there will be between the PlayStation 4 version of Watch Dogs and the game on other platforms. To that end Morin was reluctant to show any preferrence for the PS4,

No, I don’t think so. I think it’s more… I mean, of course, new machine means new tools and means an extension of the original vision. So, PlayStation 4 will be great for Watch Dogs. That being said, I firmly believe that creating a game experience starts with what you want to do and achieve as a team. It has nothing to do with tools. The tools are there to facilitate certain things. So the same experience is there on the PS3 and other consoles. Players will have the same enjoyment; they will not feel any letdown.

If all this is to be believed, we have already been shown the first glimpse of the multiplayer possibilities of the PlayStation 4. This take on multiplayer gameplay would definitely play a big part in attracting more market.
