E3 2012: Ubisoft Unveils New IP: Watch Dogs


One of the few things that has stuck out so far this E3 was a new title in development under Ubisoft. The game is called “Watch Dogs,” and it honestly looks pretty interesting. I still don’t understand what the plot it, besides that everything is run by a Central Operating System (traffic lights, cell phones, etc.) and you seem to be able to control members of a group that can hack into the system and control aspects of it. Check out the gameplay trailer after the jump for some fresh gameplay footage!

UPDATE:

Right after I posted this, Ubisoft released a press release that gives some more details. Here’s an excerpt from said release:

“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 goes beyond the limits of today’s open-world games by giving players the ability to control an entire city,” said Jonathan Morin, creative director, Ubisoft. “In Watch Dogs, anything connected to the city’s Central Operating System becomes a weapon. By pushing the boundaries, we can provide players with action and access to information on a scale that’s never been seen in a video game before.
