Fresh Watch Dogs trailer appears online a day before Ubisoft’s pre-E3 briefing

One of Ubisoft’s big guns has a new trailer that probably wasn’t supposed to go live until tomorrow.

It’s a CGI video that shows Watch Dogs’ hero, Aiden Pierce, using technology before solving all of his problems with guns. Vimeo user “Aiden Pierce” uploaded it (as spotted first by Kotaku) to the video-sharing site, which suggests that this is likely deliberate.

Watch Dogs is Ubisoft’s new near-future open-world action game. It has players hacking the city of Chicago to complete missions.

Check out the trailer below:

We’ll have more on Watch Dogs, Ubisoft, and all of E3 this whole week.
