Ubisoft’s upcoming cybernetic action game, WATCH DOGS (or WATCH_DOGS, if you want to stylize the title as much as Ubisoft does), has gotten a concrete release date. The game will be launching in the UK on November 22nd for PC, 360, PS3, PS4, and Wii U. It’s also planned for “other next generation consoles,” which means it will be hitting Microsoft’s follow up to the 360 as well.

Special editions have also been announced.

The “Dedsec Edition” (select UK retailers) comes with a 23cm figure of the game’s protagonist, Aiden Pearce, a steelbook and collector box, an artbook and original soundtrack, a map of the game’s Chicago setting, three badges and four collectable augmented reality cards, and three single player missions (PALACE PACK, BREAKTHROUGH PACK, and SIGNATURE SHOT) that add around an hour of gameplay.

The “Vigilante Edition” (GAME for UK, GameStop for Ireland) comes with a replica of Aiden’s hat and mask, the soundtrack, the PALACE PACK bonus mission, and a collector’s box.

The “UPlay Exclusive Edition” (UPlay website) comes with a steelbook case and includes the aforementioned three single player missions.

The “Special Edition” (GAME for UK) comes with the BREAKTHROUGH PACK mission.

A new trailer has also been released, which you can find below…

WATCH_DOGS is set in a hyper-connected world in the city of Chicago, which has the country’s most advanced computer system known as the CtOS. Players take on the role of Aiden Pearce, a former thug and brilliant hacker, whose past led to a family tragedy. As Aiden, players will be able to monitor and hack all who surround you, while manipulating the city’s systems to stop traffic lights, detonate gas lines, turn off the electrical grid, and more.
