Video: Watch_Dogs Behind the Scenes Trailer Shows MoCap in Action

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Hands can now go in pockets, minds are blown

Watch_Dogs is arguably Ubisoft's biggest game of the year, as it's a new IP that also has the potential to be a technical marvel; it certainly turned heads when it made its debut at E3 2012. It's coming to the Wii U, too, which is possibly the best news of all.

Ubisoft has been producing various videos to hype the title, but the latest gives a glimpse of MoCap (motion capture) being put together. We can see the impressively agile main man putting game character Aiden through his paces, with some smooth jumps, rolls and combat sequences. One of the talking heads also shares his pleasure at the fact they're capturing the ability for Aiden to put his hands in his pockets, which is impressive... we guess.

In any case, the video is below and provides some decent Sunday entertainment for a couple of minutes. The more we see of Watch_Dogs, meanwhile, the more interested we become.

i imagine that putting hands in pockets is pretty impressive, but MGS4 did that too...

WOW just wow not only do i always like behind the scenes stuff cuz you get the feel of the creativity that the developers put into the games or how they came up with the ideas but thats kinda cool on the fighting style some of it reminds me of assassins creed but more street like fighting not bad

the whole pocket thing is nice makes you get more personality for the character in a way eh i know this will be a pre order for sure either way ;D just which console to get it grrr

This game looks so good, I just hope the trailers do the gameplay justice. Very much one to look forwards to, go Ubisoft!

A bunch of little things that pay attention to detail really do stack up to be greater than the sum of their parts.

@Jaz007 This is very true. If you've ever played Future Soldier, your squadmates are so specific with their information, it's astounding. I may have to keep an eye on this title.

I really like how much Ubisoft is putting into this game. Sounds to me like this is going to be the first true next-generation game.

@kereke12 I don't think that the gameplay scenes are WiiU graphics. They'd put something like PS4/XB1 there for sure, so don't expect the game to look exactly that good. on the other hand, it shouldn't look so much worse as I didn't see too much, the wiiu shouldn't be capable of processing. It's just that of course they would show the best possible graphics in a commercial video. When you watch the GTA5-Trailers, those graphics aren't even PS3/XBox 360 Graphics although there hasn't been any other version announced yet.
