Watch Dogs Contains Sexual Content, Nudity, Violence and Alcohol Use

Watch Dogs
From watching just a single gameplay snippet, it’s pretty apparent that Ubisoft’s upcoming much hyped about game contains some pretty mature content.

And the game is pretty abundant on cutscenes. So how mature and intense will this content be?

Watch Dogs is going to be heavy with scenes of violence, like a man getting “stabbed in the neck and then shot multiple times”. Additionally, the ESRB noted that the various interactions of the player’s behavior and the world around them can sometimes result in cries of pain (from someone being injured).

The summary goes on to note that during the course of the game, some female characters appear topless. One scene is especially notable: A group of women are “auctioned off to a room full of male buyers,” and in a separate scene “sexual moaning sounds” can be heard.

Furthermore, players will be having control over drunk Aiden, at times. The summary notes that he is “depicted drinking alcohol; after each shot, players are prompted to steady Aiden’s blurred vision/balance.” This feature has been seen in other games like GTA and can make for some interesting (and sometimes controversial) gameplay, to say the least.

Finally, there’s a mention of narcotics and drugs attributed to a character’s addiction and that character being convicted of “drug-trafficking”.

Profane language is also abundant, as has already been seen before in other gameplay segments from Watch Dogs.

An official release date for Watch Dogs still isn’t fixed. Recent reports have alleged that the game may be launching on June 30th, which is a Monday. Publishers usually release their games on Tuesdays, only, so that particular date is most likely a placeholder.

Ubisoft is expected to formally announce Watch Dogs’ new release date within the next few weeks or so, but hopefully we won’t have to wait that long as the game has already been confirmed for a release between April and June.
