Watch Dogs is a 3rd person shooter where you play as hacker Aiden Pearce, as he seeks revenge against those responsible for the death of his niece, plays drinking games and solves chess puzzles.

Graphics Downgrade

To do:
Where are they located?

At E3 2012, Ubisoft showed gameplay of Watch Dogs that was visually stunning but when the game released the graphics had been downgraded. Unused graphical presets were found in the files of the PC version and they can be enabled by modding.

Unused Feature?

Player can fly a helicopter via glitch. This is fixed in Watch Dogs 2.

Unused Graphics

Located in common.dat/__UNKNOWN/gfx, there are a number of unused graphics including old screenshots of an earlier build of the game.

Unused Digital Trip

To do:
Verify this is actually cut, and if it is, find more about it.

A screenshot of the Alone digital trip, showcasing one of the generators being activated, with framing not seen anywhere else in the game around it, perhaps used in an earlier version of the digital trip selection menu.
Aiden is also seen wearing the default Vigilante outfit in the screenshot, as opposed to the usual Alone outfit he uses during this Digital Trip.

To do:
Same for this.

Can't think of a place where this would be in-game:
