After it became one of the most anticipated launch titles of the PS4 and Xbox One following a dazzling E3 début, Watch_Dogs suddenly disappeared from the lineup mere weeks before it was due to come out. But now we know we won't be waiting all that long to see it!

The new trailer put out today delves a little further into the games story, something not even really covered in the run up to Watch_Dog's original release. Hacker protagonist Aiden Pierce - pulling off a 'gruff hero voice' that almost borders on Bale-Batman in levels of silliness - loses a loved one to the villain of the piece, and as you do, goes on a hacking spree to dismantle a criminal organisation hidden in the surveillance dystopia of a near future Chicago, one hack/shotgun blast to the face/nightstick beating at a time. There's a lot of violence, a lot of dubstep, and a lot of pretty graphics going on.

Watch_Dogs will be out on Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 27th, with a Wii U version planned for release at a later date.

Such release dates. Many preorders. So excite.
