An except of the official press release is below.
As demonstrated onstage today at PlayStation Meeting 2013, Watch_Dogsâ€™ ambitious scope illustrates that Ubisoft is once again at the forefront of new technologies, giving freedom to development teams to create unprecedented entertainment experiences. Development of Watch_Dogs is being led by Ubisoft Montreal, with support from Ubisoftâ€™s Bucharest, Paris, Quebec and Reflections studios. Receiving more than 83 awards and nominations at E3 2012 where it was first announced, Watch_Dogs blends cutting-edge technologies and sophisticated game design into a realistic, living open world.
In Watch_Dogs, players will experience the realities of living in our fully connected society, where individuals and corporations are at risk of exposure by our ever-increasing reliance on networks and technology.
Players will assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicagoâ€™s central operating system (ctOS) and control almost every element of the city. Aiden will be able to tap into the cityâ€™s omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control systems such as traffic lights or public transportation to stop a chase, and more. The city of Chicago is now the ultimate weapon.
â€œUbisoft has a strong history of supporting new technologies with unique and creative offerings,â€ said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer, Ubisoft. â€œThe power and capability of the PS4 allows the Watch_Dogs team to further push the boundaries of what was previously thought possible in interactive entertainment.â€
Watch_Dogs will be available on PS4 at launch, along with its release on the PlayStationÂ®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360Â® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Wii Uâ„¢ system from Nintendo and Windows PC.
