New trailer; pre-order bonuses announced.

Watch Dogs will launch for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on November 19 in North America, November 22 in Europe, and November 21 in Australia, Ubisoft has announced.

Additionally, the game will be available as a PlayStation 4 launch title, and is “also planned for other next-generation consoles” (the next Xbox).

U.S. consumers who pre-order the game at GameStop will receive an exclusive Alex Ross-designed collectible poster. U.K. pre-orders include a multiplayer skins pack.

The U.K. is also getting four special editions. The “Vigilante Edition,” available exclusively at GAME, will include the game, a collector’s box, official soundtrack, Aiden’s hat and mask, and an exclusive single-player mission via the ‘Palace Pack’.

A GAME-exclusive “Special Edition” will include the game, and a bonus single-player mission via the ‘Breakthrough Pack’.

A Uplay-exclusive edition will include the game, a SteelBook, and three additional single-player missions via the ‘Breakthrough Pack’, ‘Signature Shot’, and ‘Palace Pack’.

A “Dedsec Edition,” available at various U.K. retailers, will include the game, a collector’s box, 23cm Aiden Pearce figurine, official soundtrack, art book, and three additional single-player missions via the ‘Breakthrough Pack’, ‘Signature Shot’, and ‘Palace Pack’.

See artwork for the U.S. pre-order poster and each U.K. special edition at the gallery.

A new trailer shows vigilante protagonist Aiden Pearce on run, spying on the city, visiting grave sites, riding motorbikes, and running towards explosions. Watch the clip, as well as a promo for the Alex Ross pre-order artwork, below.

    Sneaky sneaky, Sal – not sure how you’ve managed to pull off access to this, but kudos!

  • Michael Garling

    His hate is in the box? I can see that being the future of pre-order bonuses – pure emotions contained in a box! Pokemon Iridium Edition for the 4DS contains ‘Ash’s joy’ as a pack-in bonus!

    Is that the Ps3 graphics or PS4?

    • rockman29

      im guessing ps4 just based on how clean the graphics are

      ps4 only games will look better tho i suppose

    • Locksus

      I think they are showing us the PC footage in these trailers.

  • Zackasaur

    I’m picking this up with my PS4.

  • Claude

    …so it’s going up against CoD? Thought they were going to shoot for October.

    The ‘Out of Control’ trailer is awesome!

    I hope some of those Special Editions come over to NA. I’m a sucker for that stuff. The Aiden Statue looks nice, but so does his cap and mask.

    Quick thoughts on the trailer

    We also got to see a new character in this trailer. Could she possibly be the person who seems to always be following Aiden? PixxelFD ?

    Here is a quick picture of PixxelFD monitoring Aiden via camera in the previous trailer.

    PixxelFD using Camera

    This is who I think PixxelFD is via the new trailer.

    New character in the trailer

    This is all just a hunch. I might be completely wrong. =P

    That Out of Control trailer was extremely insightful, now I just want to see how this all unfolded from that brief moment (graveyard scene). I’m curious if the pre-order bonus only applies to the PS3/X360/WiiU preorders or if the PS4 will get the poster too and if said poster will be available in Canada. If it is in Canada and for PS4 also, then I’m game for a pre-order.

    PS4 for me~

  • artemisthemp

    I gonna Pre order PS4 Dedsec_Edition.

    I fell sorry for UK, since they have to buy from GAME, if they want Special Edition or The “Vigilante Edition, then again, they could get from Ubishop
