An upcoming game for "all home consoles" and PC. It is set in a near-future world, where everything is connected by technology.
The main point of the game is to hack the city's technology in order to help the main character. There isn't a linear story to follow, but the game prompts the player to perform specific actions such as stopping crimes.
The game allows to control practically anything via a handheld device. (which kind of looks like an iPhone?) The player can e.g. hack traffic lights to cause traffic to crash, hack ATM
s to withdraw cash, hack people's phones to end calls etc. The possibilities are enormous.
The game was praised at E3 about it's originality, next-gen graphics and the unique gameplay. Ubisoft's executive director for EMEA territories, Alain Coore, stated that Watch Dogs will try to compete with other open-world games, such as Grand Theft Auto
Watch Dogs is going to be one of the greatest games in 2013.
