So someone found and unpacked the files for the original graphics/lighting of the Watch_Dogs E3 2012 presentation. The game looks next gen from what is depicted in these screens and appears closer to the original concept and/or what people expected from the game.
What's odd is these files are actually already included within the game files, so if you have this game on PC your game could look amazing in only a few steps. Why these aren't available as an option is beyond me.
The question is why is Ubisoft hiding/restricting these files? As someone with a beefy PC I can easily run a game that looks like this, I've run the photo realistic GTA4 PC mods before with ease as well. This all seems like a really weird and shady thing to me, maybe Ubisoft is doing this to keep all versions of the game on parity with each other? Sort of makes me question their delaying of the game as well.
