Ubisoft has just debuted its new, ground-breaking intellectual property, an open-world action-adventure game, Watch Dogs. Development of Watch Dogs is being led by Ubisoft Montreal, with a team comprised of industry veterans from blockbuster franchises like Assassins Creed, Rainbow 6 and Far Cry. Watch Dogs blends cutting-edge technologies and sophisticated game design into a realistic and living open world where players must use any means at their disposal to take down a corrupt system.
In Watch Dogs, players enter the dangerous world of Aiden Pearce, a new class of antihero whose ability to hack into any connected system could be his most powerful weapon. Whether its triggering a 30-car pileup by manipulating traffic-lights to trap an enemy during a downtown shootout or tapping into the citys omnipresent security cameras to access anyones personal information, Pearce is capable of coercing and controlling almost every element of the world around him.
Watch Dogs goes beyond the limits of todays open-world games by giving players the ability to control an entire city, said Jonathan Morin, creative director, Ubisoft. In Watch Dogs, anything connected to the citys Central Operating System becomes a weapon. By pushing the boundaries, we can provide players with action and access to information on a scale thats never been seen in a video game before.
