Watch Dogs fans who play the game on PlayStation may get an extra 60 minutes of gameplay, but Xbox fans may wind up getting a closed beta. A surprise profile for a Watch Dogs beta was discovered on Xbox One by video game industry watch dog group The Internet and shared with the world on Reddit. They captured their discovery on camera and now we have this rumor.
According to the leak Aiden Pearce will be connecting your world on May 27, but the Xbox Live store may have other plans in store for select people. The now-removed listing was unavailable for download and offered no information on a date, but it did share a 23 GB download size, which may or may not be the size of the installation when the game is released. It also came with this description of Watch Dogs:
"You are Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker but also a former thug, who's criminal past lead to a violent family tragedy. In a world led by technology, you will be able to hack systems to stop traffic lights, detonate gas lines, turn off the electrical grid and more.
The city of Chicago has become the ultimate weapon for a man bent on revenge."
The description doesn't share a whole lot of information we didn't already know, but the grammatical errors in the listing have irked quite a few people. If this image is real and not a cleverly done Photoshop job, we can probably expect to hear more information on any planned Watch Dogs beta tests in the near future. A slip up for a game that's already got a cult following like Watch Dogs isn't going to be easy for Ubisoft to ignore.
Aiden Pearce will be blowing up Chicago starting May 27 on PCs, Xbox, and PlayStation systems. The game is still scheduled for launch on the Wii U, but there's no information on a release date after Ubisoft announced its delay last month.
