Video: Watch Dogs launch trailer hacks and smashes

Ubisoft has published the launch trailer for Watch Dogs, showing the high-speed chases and brutal gunfights Aiden Pearce will spark in his quest for revenge.

Between praise-filled blurbs from critics, Aiden uses a combination of hacking powers, wheelman maneuvers, and good old fashioned legwork to evade the police and catch up to his enemies.

The launch trailer naturally presents the game in ideal conditions, though a since-pulled stream of Watch Dogs' Xbox 360 edition yielded footage of the last-gen version in action.

The worldwide Watch Dogs release date is May 27 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3. A Wii U version of Watch Dogs is expected to launch in autumn 2014.

The open-world action game went gold earlier this month after five-and-a-half years in development. It was originally planned as a PS4 and Xbox One launch window game, but in October 2013 Ubisoft delayed Watch Dogs to spring 2014 due to quality concerns.
