Watch 15 Minutes of WATCH DOGS
Video game company Ubisoft gives us a 15-minute look at their upcoming game, Watch Dogs. For the uninitiated, Watch Dogs is an open-world action game coming this November across all major consoles, current and next-gen, and the PC. The storyline is based around a world where the world’s use of technology has increased exponentially, and information is absolutely everywhere, like low-hanging fruit to any hacker with the proper know-how to pluck with ease. You play Aiden Pearce, a skilled hacker who can literally break into any system with his phone.
As you will see in the video, more features of the game are revealed to us. The most astonishing aspect of the game is that another player can sneak into your single-player game and hack into your system, stealing anything you’ve earned in your playthrough so far. It’s kind of like journey where you meet another player in your game and help each other solve puzzles. Only, the key difference is that the second player wants to steal your hard earned cash. You can thwart the hacking, and if you’re feeling especially vindictive, you can hack into that player’s game and either steal from him or just plain “murderize” that little…punk.
More and more this game looks like it’s going to be a Game of the Year contender. Watch Dogs will launch November 19, 2013 in North America. Will you pick it up?
