A new comparison of various released footage of Watch Dogs has revealed something - as the game has progressed, the graphics seemed to have been downgraded, and from the first footage we saw in 2012, to the graphics shown this month in March, there is a considerable difference between the graphical quality of both builds.
In a world where console fans argue about the importance of 1080p over 720p, this is a huge thing, and there has been a lot of backlash about it.
The new story trailer that was released this week shows that the graphics in Watch Dogs have certainly been reduced from the original build shown in 2012, and since then fans have been pretty angry at Ubisoft for doing this.
A Ubisoft PR member talked about the whole controversy on twitter, and she discussed that, although graphics are great, gameplay is more important. On top of this, she seems to suggest that the graphics have not been downgraded in any way.
It's important to note that this was from the personal twitter account of a Ubisoft PR team member, so we're not entirely sure if we can take her word for it. There is certainly a change in graphical quality in the latest shown trailer, but is it going to be enough of a difference to turn you away from purchasing the game? I'm certainly not going to let it get to me. Hopefully Ubisoft will officially clear up the speculation with an official statement later on in the month.
