Along with this, Ubisoft also released a new trailer titled “Out of control.”
They also confirmed that the leaked editions of the game are indeed true. No word on whether they will hit stateside, but here are the details on the editions.
- The Dedsec Edition. Available at select UK retailers, it will include a mixture of physical and digital content. Physical content includes a figurine of protagonist Aiden Pearce, a collector’s box, a Watch Dogs art book with illustrations and artwork that inspired the game, the soundtrack, a Watch Dogs map of Chicago, four collectible cards and three badges. Digital content includes three single-player missions with “almost 60 minutes of additional gameplay.” The Palace Pack mission centers on a police raid in the luxury palace of an internet mogul. The Signature Shot mission involves a biometrics weapon smuggled into Chicago. The Breakthrough Pack focuses on driving through Chicago to collect names of those attending a secret meeting.
- The Vigilante Edition. Available at GAME stores in the U.K. and GameStop in Ireland, physical content includes a collector’s box, Aiden Pearce’s cap and mask and the Watch Dogs soundtrack. Digital content includes the Palace Pack, which is also included in the Dedsec Edition.
