Watch Dogs

[adsense250itp]Watch Dogs is certainly a release to watch heading into the second half of 2013. This new high intensity game of stealth and retribution from the Ubisoft Montreal appears to be a virtual feast for gamers. For players who love the subtle but well-crafted drama that Ubisoft has become synonymous with over their past releases then Watch Dogs have plenty to offer. Watch Dogs is played through the eyes of Aiden Pearce (voiced by Noam Jenkins), previously a ne’er-do-well hacker who’s less than stellar and violent past lead to a brutal family tragedy. With a vendetta to uphold, Pearce is a man all about stealth and hacking electronic devices tied to the city’s central operating system, known in the game with the abbreviation ctOS. This ctOS is found in various places in the city, such as cameras that track all movement in the game. Alternate reality Chicago, Illinois is host to a corrupt system and it is Pearce’s job to end that.

What sets Watch Dogs apart from other stealth revenge games is the focus on technology. Aiden may carry a gun, but it is his cell phone that really acts as his primary weapon. From his phone, Aiden is able to hack the city’s network and change bank account balances, hack text messages from various interplay characters and track the movement of the corrupt via the city’s closed circuit camera system.

Per Ubisoft, Watch Dogs also features heavy emphasis on social media trends with the local citizens. For example, though players may be completing a nefarious mission for the greater good, the citizens of this fictional Chicago may be posting that they disapprove of those actions. While this does not change a good and evil reputation system, as seen in games like Fable, it does make things a bit more dangerous for Aiden. A police photo posted on a social network, much like in our modern reality, can bring about a faster response time from local citizens and end up with Aiden Pearce in police custody.

Reality and technology are the main focuses of Watch Dogs and based on what has been released to the public, its primary strengths. After a particularly good reception at Ubisoft’s press conference at E3 2012, buzz for the game began and continues to build leading into its release. It will make a showing at E3 2013 to help add to that anticipation. In addition to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 systems, Watch Dogs is also being released for the WiiU, PC and Xbox One and PS4. The game is scheduled for release on November 19, 2013, just in time for the holiday season. Get those pre-orders in now to enjoy the store specific pre-order inventives.
