Watch_Dogs: Mysterious Blurred Out Option with Assassin’s Creed-Like Icon on Aiden’s Phone Unveiled

on May 11, 2014 4:57 PM

Remember the Smartphone menu option in Watch_Dogs with an icon that looked like an upside-down version of Assassin’s Creed’s logo? Its name was blurred out, and that made many(me included) think that the developers were trying to hide some actual and mysterious story connection with Ubisoft’s assassin-driven franchise.

Eagle eye Reddit user coolio137 spotted a version of that option without the blur in the recent multiplayer trailer, as you can see in the picture below. The icon isn’t shown because it’s at the edge of the screen, but the number is the same and the text matches.

The icon is actually the “Digital trips” option, that will do exactly what it says on the tin, sending is to augmented reality digital trips like the fight against the giant spider. Looks like assassins aren’t involved this time around. At least from what we can guess.
