There are a few videos roaming around the internet claiming that vehicles in Watch_Dogs do not have any sort of dynamic deformation or damage. But a user who got an early copy of the upcoming open world hacking game was able to post some direct feed screens of the PlayStation 4 version on Reddit.

The screens below show that Watch Dogs indeed has a dynamic damage model for the different types of vehicles. As you can see the amount of damage that your car takes is somewhat proportional to the kind of impact the car takes. For example a grenade launcher will cause more deformation compared to say a front on hit against a wall.

Watch_Dogs releases tomorrow on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Xbox One. A Wii U version is also in the works and Ubisoft has assured that it is not cancelled and will be released at a later date.

    lol last screen, screen deformation too.

    It seems like that GTA IV (vs) video had the PS360 version of the game.
    Now I´m even more excited, what more may have been missed?

  • joe

    Even if it does, the video you guys posted shows many other things that GTA IV, a 6 year old game, does better than Watch Dogs, yet you guys have not highlighted this. Please either debunk the whole video or report on it.

    • Damian Waga

      Except GTA IV came out on 3 devices, one being a garbage port on PC, while Watch Dogs is coming out on 6. Gta is also built around driving, watch dogs is more about hacking, and the actual visuals in gta are muddy and have unstable framerates. There are your comparisons.

    • joe

      The lowest end devices Watch Dogs came out on were PS3 and 360, you act like they had to port it to PS2 or something. Also Watch Dogs was repeatedly highlighted for it’s “next gen” graphics yet it is missing simple graphical things that GTA IV has. This is about attention to detail not graphical capability and areas of focus. How many times were the Watch Dog devs highlighting little things like trash blowing in the wind and stuff?! Yet they missed all these other details!

    • Robert Gittings

      Have you actually played the game yet because from the looks of things you havent. I’ve been playing watch dogs for about 6 hours now and the game is way more immerse than GTAIV and V… the only thing I did not like was that you can’t shoot whilst driving but this makes hacking the enviroment whilst you drive even more fun.

    • Damian Waga

      Because its graphics are by all standards “next gen”. Making an open world game run in actual HD, not sub-hd, while also maintain decent frame rates and including new features across multiple platforms isn’t bloody easy.

      Play or GTA 4 and 5, blow up a car, and watch the fps drop. Speed around in a fast car, and watch the textures blatantly pop in across all versions. Compare character models for npc’s, all of which takes place after the absurd loading time.

      If we’re going to also compare car physics, notice how they dropped the realistic ones? The GTA 5 cars float, no matter which vehicle, and the new animations for getting hit are stiffer.

      The majority of people complaining about the visuals are still just pissed at the downgrade from the e3 versions, nothing more.

    • joe

      I don’t think you understand, the graphical things that are missing in this game and that are present in GTA IV are not major. They are not something that would cause a huge FPS drop or strain on the engine they are simple details, details that the devs missed. Again we are talking about attention to detail not graphical limitations. Yes, Watch Dogs runs in HD and overall looks much better than GTA but when it comes down to it they are missing some details, details Rockstar thought of over six years ago; and really to me next gen graphics should be all about the details, making it feel more real not just HD, AA, ambient occlusion and tessellation. These things make the game look pretty but not real. We want objects to act in a realistic way.

    • Damian Waga

      This is more reasonable. Yes, the game lacks many small things from GTA, but the fact is that there is no consistency because of priorities.

      GTA 4 focused on realistic car physics and character animations, and as a result, side activities and visuals took a hit. GTA 5 focused on expanding activities, from bank heists to driving airplanes,but not so much performance or car physics this time around.

      Watch Dogs focuses on visuals and making a world with characters, events, and a hacking system that doesn’t break or crash the game. Considering that it’s a new IP, it’s not surprising it’s missing aspects that GTA got right.

  • ME3X12

    Better on X1

    • ps4lol

      PS4 version of Watch Dogs has higher shadow quality, higher resolution, and ambient occlusion. It is technically superior in visuals.

    • Robert Gittings

      PS4 version is certainly the more superior console version. I was shocked to see that Ambient Occlusion was absent in the Xbox version.

    • sarahlovesmassivecockinass

      crack kills

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong & Salty

      Actually, the ps4 is the lowest common denominator in current gen systems for multiplat games. Ubi has made the right decision on the Ps4. Contrary to general perception, the weakest needs to be the highest priority. 🙂

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Ok so PC is better then console we got, now go update your virus protection software for like the tenth time today and STFU.

      You STFU you console peasant.

      Yet another asshurt microsoft fanboy hiding behind a high end PC to excuse their favorite overpriced, underpowered box.

      Every time another article arrives where PS4 runs better than Xbox One, all the microsoft xbox shills come crawling out hiding behind high end PCs to attack it. Transparently sad and pathetic damage control. Sorry, it’s still underpowered and overpriced and most people don’t want it.

      PC and PS4 are different markets with different pros and cons. PS4 has price/performance and simplicity, PCs have a higher potential performance, but generally more expensive and requires time and knowledge to buy, build, and maintain one.

      PS4 is comparable to a mid range PC at 1.84TF. PS4 has some interesting architecture benefits over traditional split CPU/GPU split memory pool PCs, and other customizations. For $400 you get a lot of price/performance, more than a $400 PC would get you. PS4 is better than most PCs. PS4 will have lots of good exclusives, both console only and PS4 only.

      Xbox/PC fanboys seem to be on a war on people too poor or unwilling/unable to spend time and money buying, building, and maintaining a PC. Mustard race claiming they can afford multi-thousand dollar PCs but too poor to buy a $200-400 console.

      Both PS4 and Xbox will have good exclusive games, high end PCs are best for multiplatform games if you have the time, money, and effort to build and maintain one. Only deranged fanboys keep chewing their own legs off screaming about “PS4 peasants”.

    • Person from 2019

      It’s almost embarrassing the way these people actually believe that simply saying something makes it true. A perfect demonstration of how denial and belief can completely cloud logic and common sense. Why would you buy an inferior product like the XBO and then pretend it is superior?

      The information was available a year before launch and has been discussed in depth on several technical forums if you care to pull your fingers out of your ears.

      If, however, you wish to maintain that your purchase was because of brand loyalty, game series preferences or Kinect, etc. then that’s fine. There is nothing wrong the the XBO. It’s way more powerful than the 360. Enough for some amazing looking games like Ryse etc.

      This ‘Lowest common denominator’ and ‘Better on Xbox’ comments are absolute rubbish!

      Also, maybe we can club together and buy the child who thinks everyone else is a pauper, an Xbox One. Judging by his psychologically revealing comments, he certainly has little else to do with his life at the moment. Let’s cheer him up, poor person.

    • Robert Gittings

      Well said.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Better on PS4, the xbone version is the worst.

    • Luckyca

      You are both wrong, best on PC

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Seen some PC shots wasn’t really that impressive either.

    • Robert Gittings

      Got to be kidding, the PS4 and PC are the best versions… I’ve got it on PC.. maxxed out at 1080p with a stable 60fps, as long as I used FXAA.

  • Guest

    Doesn’t look that impressive. It looks like GTA V does it. It’ll be best on PC anyway, but $0N¥tards can’t afford that yet think their pauperbrick does the same as a good PC.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong & Salty

      Blame it on the weakest link (Ps4) for the weak physics, it’s been maxed out. lol

      Why you so angry? Is it cause you’re scared at just how good PS4 graphics look, is it cause its starting to close the gap on PC? Everyone knows PC is better but you seem so butthurt and angry that the graphics must be getting closer cause you seem really scared and mad about it. Don’t be such a little cry baby.
