Watch Dogs CGI Commercial Shows How Stunning Games Could Look

The first TV commercial for Watch Dogs has been revealed and surprise, it’s Australian. Instead of showing clips from the game, however, Ubisoft chose to forgo it and show pre-rendered CGI scenes. While the commercial is effective in getting the point of the game across, it’s a bit surprising to see this route be taken considering most of what’s in the trailer could have been easily portrayed with in-game footage and the fact that the game’s visuals have been touted since its reveal.

At least Ubisoft isn’t trying to be deceptive about it and put “NOT ACTUAL GAME FOOTAGE” in capital, large font script at the start of the trailer. Although then again, the fact that they did that probably indicates that the footage was purposely cut to look like it was in-game…

Ah well, just watch the trailer below:
