It’s already known that Watch_Dogs is going to have some rather “interesting” and weird things, and apparently a giant mecha spider is part of the whole picture, as shown by an allegedly leaked screenshot posted on Imgur by a user aptly named Leakythings.
You can check it out above, and considering that we also saw mecha dragons and flaming head zombies hidden in a previous trailer, we can definitely wonder on how many unexpected elements will make an appearance in Ubisoft’s upcoming open world game.
Of course the screenshot doesn’t come directly from Ubisoft, so it’s legitimacy is not 100% confirmed, but the robot itself already appeared in the trailer mentioned above (as you can see from the screen capture below). It looks exactly the same, so it definitely seems solid. Of course it could also be a controlled leak from Ubisoft itself in order to generate hype.
As usual we’ve reached out to Ubisoft for a comment, and we’ll keep you updated if we’ll receive any specific response on this big metal arachnid.
