New Xbox One details have been posted for "Watch Dogs." According to a report from GameSpot on May 2, Microsoft recently updated the product page for the open-world hacking video game, revealing the install and download size of the software product is 20.42 GB. By comparison, the PC version requires 25 GB of free space on the hard disk drive.

The amount of space may be surprising considering that a lot of high-definition games feature assets that take up a significant amount of space. Despite taking very little room, "Watch Dogs" will provide a lot of content. Jonathan Morin previously disclosed that it would take somewhere between 35 to 40 hours to complete the main campaign. Furthermore, the length would be extended to 100 hours if the player choose to complete everything.

Along with the file size, the achievement list was also revealed for the Xbox One version. The open-world action-adventure title features 38 accomplishments that can be unlocked. The catalog includes rewards for completing the story missions as well as performing several side activities. You can find the complete list on the Xbox Achievements website.

"Watch Dogs" was originally announced as a launch game for the Xbox One as well as the PS4. Ubisoft felt that the new intellectual property wasn't ready, however, and decided to push back the release date that was originally planned for Nov. of 2013. Due to the extension, the company was able to add extra polish to the video game while also including some additional scenes at the same time.

May 27 is the new release date for the Xbox One version of "Watch Dogs" in the North American region. The PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360 iterations are also arriving at the same time while the Wii U port won't be ready until later this autumn.
