Jonathan Morin has revealed the differences between the PC and PS4 versions of the upcoming multiplatform video game, "Watch Dogs." According to a report from Dual Shockers on April 28, the representative stated that the two iterations should look almost exactly the same. Nvidia users should be able to see several visual improvements on computers, however.

Ubisoft previously confirmed that the development teams will be taking advantage of several features from the aforementioned brand of PC graphics cards. As a result, machines equipped Nvidia hardware will be able to utilize the HBAO Plus light and shadow system for lighting as well as the TXAA for anti-aliasing. Along with the potential increase in native resolution, the PC version of "Watch Dogs" should have a visual advantage over the console ports.

The PS4 version will most like end up the best looking one when compared to the same game running on other home consoles. Another spokesperson from the company stated that the open-world action adventure title should be running at the native 1080p resolution. Ubisoft has kept quiet on the visuals of the PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One iterations although the publisher did promise that the graphical details should be announced before the software product is released.

Jonathan Morin also stated that the quick reflex ability of the player will be different in the single-player and multiplayer modes of "Watch Dogs." In the campaign, Aiden Pearce can use the feature to slow down time to allow him to get better aim. For online, the same ability will only give players visual indicators as the speed will remain the same.

May 27 is the official release date for "Watch Dogs" in North America and other regions. The Wii U version won't be coming out at the same time, however, as it is currently slated for a fall launch.
