Take full control of the city through your smartphone
Watch Dogs is an action-adventure game that presents a whole new open-world focused on Chicago city. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the title features a current yet futuristic monitored environment surrounded by technology, somewhat related to today´s society, in which you can take control over the elements you want, accessing all the characters from your smartphone. Available for Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC, both in physical and digital edition to download.
In this release, you will play as Aiden Pearce, a skilled hacker and former mercenary for the Fixer group. Aiden is motivated by revenge against those who want to hurt his family, rebelling against the technological and corrupt CtOS system. For this reason, Aiden as the main character uses all kind of information to his benefit, spying on those who are responsible for his misfortunes and keeping them monitored. Dedsec, a secret organization, will fight against CtOS, but you cannot take it for granted that they are your allies or your enemies.
In the technical aspect of this release, we can state that it is one of the best works by Ubisoft in recent times. The recreation of Chicago city has built an entirely free and open world in which you can play however want. The details of the city environments as well as the behavior of the people make the title seem to be very alive, just like in the real world. The vehicle part, developed by Ubisoft Reflections, creators of the Driver series, is pitching to be as good as the original release.
The main ground-breaking element of the gameplay that distinguishes this title from similar ones of the genre, is the ability to control almost all the city through your mobile phone in real-time. Aiden can modify traffic lights, stop and restart trains, change elements of infrastructure and even obtain information about people through their phones. Being able to hack all these elements, and much more puts you at a considerable advantage for your missions in case you know how to use the knowledge. With health data, behavioral changes and even bank information, you can take over the city with knowledge as your main ally.
Watch Dogs gameplay, in general terms, is pretty similar to GTA and other Ubisoft titles, granting the player the liberty to do whatever they want, just like in a sandbox game. The police and other criminal organizations will be up against you, but you can fight them back the way you want with your gadgets or even by narrowly escaping using the elements of the city, the choice is up to you. On the action side, the Disrupt engine lends the game pretty realistic physics, making close combat much more believable than in other titles. For fire weapons, you can use the so-called ‘bullet-time’ for slowing down the action and being able to better handle all the situations.
Take over the city with knowledge as your main ally by hacking into everyone's devices
Additionally, in Watch Dogs Ubisoft includes a new multiplayer mode. The main feature of this mode is that it is slightly a multiplayer mode. You will be required to be online, and an additional player will join your single-player world without being notified. In this situation, the new player will hack your smartphone and, if you avoid it, you may defeat him or making him flee. This revolutionary mode will make you feel like in a spy movie, suspect of everyone.
