Ubisoft has put out a new trailer for Watch Dogs, direct from its press conference at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
In Watch Dogs, players assume the role of Aiden Pierce, a new type of vigilante who will utilize his smartphone to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) and control almost every element of the city to his advantage. This gives players complete control of the world around them, allowing them to take control of the city’s cameras, download personal information to locate a target, or control traffic lights or public transportation to cause a 30-car pileup.
“Watch Dogs goes beyond the limits of today’s 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 city’s Central Operating System becomes a weapon. By pushing the boundaries, we can provide players with action and access to information on a scale that’s never been seen in a video game before.”
Watch Dogs is out on November 19 in North America and November 22 in Europe for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U. It will hit Xbox One and PlayStation 4 alongside each consoles respective launch this holiday.
