The title that is generating the most buzz from Ubisoft’s very successful E3 conference on Monday is almost certainly Watch Dogs, a new IP featuring open world gameplay and pretty stunning next-gen quality graphics. The game is set in a world where everything is connected, and thus vulnerable to being hacked. A few new screenshots give another small glimpse into the promise of this upcoming title.
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 it’s triggering a 30-car pileup by manipulating traffic-lights to trap an enemy during a downtown shootout or tapping into the city’s omnipresent security cameras to access anyone’s personal information, Pearce is capable of coercing and controlling almost every element of the world around him.
Watch Dogs is expected to be released for PS3, 360, and PC at some point in 2013 (hopefully as soon as possible).
