Watch Dogs busts Ubisoft’s sales records in this week’s edition of the Wrap, alongside stories about The Order: 1886 getting all ‘filmic’, the debut of Battlefield Hardline, and the Wii U making some waves in Japan.
Watch Dogs busts records, is Ubisoft’s biggest launch ever
If you were thinking that Watch Dogs was going to be a big game, well, you were right. Ubisoft’s open-world action title took its sweet time getting to retail shelves and digital download services, but it appears that the wait was worth it for the publisher as it’s already posted up some big sales.
How big? Well, while we don’t have the figures as of yet, Ubi went out on a limb and confirmed that the game has indeed become their number one launch of all time. When you think about it, that’s pretty darned impressive considering how many blockbusters the company has turned out over the last few years.
The Order: 1886 will run at 30fps, almost came in at 24fps
