The newest Watch Dogs trailer takes us on a tour of Chicago, the city where the game takes place. Game developers Ubisoft have taken an interesting approach – on one hand, the sandbox game promises a gritty, realistic representation of the Windy City, while on the other, it situates the game in a no-so-distant possible future, where the city we know is monitored by a sophisticated network of computers, smartphones, cameras and more…
The game’s protagonist, Aiden Pierce, is an expert hacker who is more than capable of converting the city of Chicago into his own personal playground. He can listen in on telephone conversations, connect to CCTV streams, change up the city’s traffic systems and, from what we can see, so can his fellow citizens.
The video also promises some serious realism. The trailer showcases the game’s dynamic daylight and night cycles, as well as changing weather conditions. Meanwhile, Ubisoft seems to have made numerous changes to the game’s background and the behavior of its citizens, to the extent that each will have their own personality and interests, making the game much more varied and exciting as a result.
