With less than two months to the release of Watch Dogs, we have a new trailer to check out. This one highlights the game’s setting and themes, hence the name “Welcome to Chicago,” while also describing some of the gameplay elements. It’s PS4 dev kit footage in the trailer, as confirmed by Creative Director Jonathan Morin.

Now, there’s some pretty weird stuff near the end of the trailer. Given everything we’ve heard about Watch Dogs and the sort of story it is, we didn’t really expect to see this:

Or this:

Or any of the other weird screenshots spotted by some Reddit users. However, most fans seem to think these images are from the in-game virtual reality mini games you’ll be able to play on Aiden’s phone, so don’t worry that Watch Dogs has taken some strange supernatural turn.

Morin also recently tweeted that Watch Dogs has a serious storyline with some unavoidable mature content. You also won’t have to worry about losing any progress, thanks to its dynamic save system, and there will be no microtransactions.
