You can clearly see by our multiple interviews and 3200+ word preview that it is a Watch Dogs blowout! There was one aspect I couldn’t show in my interviews or preview (though I talked about it briefly), and that was multiplayer. The team at Ubisoft Montreal was kind enough to send over this commented multiplayer video to show off how the multiplayer works in the game. Here’s a bit about the video, how multiplayer blurs the lines, and a bit about the game itself:
Check out Watch Dogs’ groundbreaking multiplayer modes where everything and everyone is connected. Learn how Watch Dogs is blurring the line between single and multiplayer, and get a glimpse into three distinct and exciting modes including Online Hacking Contracts, ctOS – Mobile Companion App, and Competitive Decryption Combat.
In Watch Dogs, players will assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt his family, players will be able to monitor and hack their enemies by manipulating everything connected to the city’s Central Operating System (ctOS). The ctOS controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate targets, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop enemies and more. Watch Dogs allows the player to use Chicago as their ultimate weapon and exact their own style of revenge.
The game is every bit worth the wait and is headed to shelves on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on May 27th. Stay tuned for our continued coverage.
