Modder finds hidden Watch Dogs files to emulate E3 trailer

We all know the story. Ubisoft releases an awesome Watch Dogs E3 trailer 2 years ago and everybody goes nuts. Once the game came out, many fans have complained that the game doesn’t look as good as the E3 trailer. Now a modder has found hidden files for the PC version that actually turns the effects on to make the game look like the E3 version.

The potential to get E3-like graphics was first revealed on Guru3D, and then later NeoGAF, with things like tweak shaders, NPC density, camera angles and other elements. The name of the file even has e3 in it, signifying that it might only be intended for E3 presentation.

I’m a very obsessed person, with many things mainly graphics . Also i’m a fan of using sweetfx on every game I can use it. I like to make my own presets always.

After release and this stupid stuttering problems I started searching for fixes etc.

Then I saw many threads talking about the engine when I realized it was based on dunia 2 so I tried to unpack the files which obviously not worked.. so after searching so much for the unpacker I found it, started playing with it and after a long time of testing I ended up getting the E3 Bloom from 2012 working.

After studying how bin hex worked and downloading many tools to convert files etc, I was able to integrate and enable many effects.
