Watch Dogs gives players control of Aiden Pearce, a vigilante hacker in a hyper-connected Chicago of the near future. Armed with a smartphone and an arsenal of weaponry, players must hack, shoot, and drive their way through a personal quest for revenge.
By hacking the technologically advanced city’s infrastructure, players can use streetlights, trains, and security cameras to their advantage to thwart criminals and glean important info about targets. When the heat builds up, engage in intense gunfights or flee the scene in high-speed car chases.
The open world of Chicago gives players sandbox access to bustling streets, pulsing railways, and sweeping views of the iconic skyline. The meticulously recreated city is replete with signature sights and sounds, such as screeching L trains and waterfront skyscrapers.
Watch Dogs seamlessly blends single- and multiplayer gameplay by dropping players into each other’s worlds to engage in cooperative or competitive hacking. For high-paced interaction, players can race each other through the streets of Chicago.
