Asked how the PC version of Watch Dogs compares to the console ones, Morin told a fan: "PC on very high setting is really stunning if you ask me. As for density it also very high of course."

Morin recently confirmed that the game will support multiplayer open world free roaming for up to eight players.

Lead game designer Danny Belanger also revealed that Watch Dogs will include a number of systems designed to combat online griefing.

In early March, Ubisoft announced a Watch Dogs release date of May 27 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, with the Wii U version set to "release at a later date".

The highly anticipated open-world game was originally scheduled for release in November 2013, but it was delayed due to quality concerns.
