Watch_Dogs gets new trailer, box art, viral website

A closer look at Watch_Dogs was a definite highlight of last week's PlayStation 4 reveal, with Ubisoft opening the floodgates on the cyberpunkish Big Brother-inspired title. Since then, we've got an open world trailer to share, new box art to ogle, and a bit of a conspiracy theory thanks to a viral website.

One thing to come out of the press conference is that Watch_Dogs will be an early title for the PS4, as well as for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Another is that there's now a pesky underscore in the title - something mirrored in the freshly-unveiled box art for the game, which looks marginally less generic than we'd anticipated, but still less unique than we'd hoped.

Meanwhile, eagle-eyed gamers spotted a URL tucked away into that trailer up there, pointing to http://chicago-ctos.com/. Visitors to that site are greeted with a black page with the inevitable lo-fi ASCII text announcing the page has been taken over by "DedSec". It looks like the site's been hacked - but has it?

Just askin'.

    Yep – this is definitely an official game site, in case you were in doubt.

    A quick reverse lookup of the Google Analytics account code they have put in the HTML source shows all the other sites associated with that account and they are all sites for games by Ubisoft.
