“Watch Dogs” was recently re-rated by the Australian Classification Board with a higher age recommendation due to an added scene that implied a female character has been sexually assaulted. Unlike the other Ubisoft-published title, “South Park: The Stick of Truth,” the forthcoming video game won’t feature any removed scenes.

Jonathan Morin also discussed some of the gameplay features. In regards to rolling, the creative director revealed that the maneuver will be contextual to the speed of the character with the player having complete control. Furthermore, players can carry every weapon available in the new intellectual property and they can quickly switch guns using the directional pad of the controller.

“Watch Dogs” has a new release date of May 27 on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One after being delayed late last year. The development team took the extra time to add new contents along with polishing the quality of the ambitious title. You can find a batch of screens for the open-world action-adventure game, which is also coming to the Wii U at a later date, in the gallery to the left side of this article.
