Watch Dogs is a new, exciting franchise brought to us by Ubisoft Montreal, the creators of games like the Assassin’s Creed series. The innovative action game is set in a semi realistic, futuristic world. Our hero is called Aiden Pierce. He is not a good person, more of an anti hero: he is an expert at hacking security systems and overcoming antivirus programs and firewalls. Thanks to his extraordinary skills, he can play with all the technology that surrounds him however he likes. He can cause an enormous crash by manipulating with the traffic control system our find out everything about a random pedestrian. This possibility enables Aiden to take part in various sidequests: he can follow a person that I’d going to get mugged in order to help them or assist someone who is preparing a revenge.
Aiden can influence almost everything in the city of Chicago full of modern technology. Everything thanks to CtOS, Central Organization System which connects all the infrastructure present in the city into one big common program. Chicago’s subway, traffic control system, electricity and CCTV at all controlled in the same way, and Idem knows exactly how.
The districts of futuristic cities are controlled by super computers owned by enormous corporation. When Pierce manages to hack the company’s security, he gains access to the inhabitants’ personal data and the city control system, becoming like a God for Chicago. In those circumstances, almost everything is a potential weapon for Aiden. If he is being chased, he can make the traffic drive into his opponent it make him Hal into water by manipulating a bascule bridge. Or, when hiding behind his smartphone gets boring, he can also engage in physical encounters with his foes, using various findable firearms, from a small gun to a big bazooka, and using a well-developed combat system featuring a cover system and hand to hand combat. Aiden can also plant mines and bombs for his enemies to step on. Although Watch Dogs is mostly a single player game, there are also some multi player modes. Most of them are pretty typical, but the game also features an innovative mode in which those players playing over the internet can use their skills to try and impede the players in single from completing missions. Also, a mode is planned in which up to eight players will be able to explore the city together.
