According to UK retail outlet Game, Watch Dogs could possibly be headed towards Steam. Inside of its terms and conditions for the upcoming Ubisoft release, it states:
You will need access to Xbox LIVE (Xbox 360 and Xbox One Customers), PlayStation Network (PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 Customers), STEAM (PC), Nintendo eShop (Wii U).
This could just be filler in general terms and conditions, however, as none of the PC branding for the game otherwise includes Steam. This would commonly be done for other titles coming to the digital distribution site.
Steam is listed in all the editions that Watch Dogs will have on Game’s storefront. Its terms and conditions are in regards of a Game exclusive piece of downloadable content (DLC), called The Untouchables. This DLC allows for protagonist Aiden to be fitted in a 1920s Chicago costume, wielding a time-appropriate Tommy Gun.
Publisher Ubisoft has recently become a lot more lenient on its PC content that would require its own proprietary Uplay system. Its latest releases, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and South Park: The Stick of Truth, both came to Steam without a fuss, so there’s no reason for Watch Dogs not to eventually make its way there.
It’s about time that Watch Dogs arrives to stores. After numerous delays, it’s now headed towards a release date of May 27, 2014. Prior to that, it had been pushed as a launch item for the latest consoles, but it missed all of those windows.
There are other scruples surrounding the game as well. In a recent trailer of Watch Dogs, visuals appeared a lot less stunning than before.
