Yesterday Ubisoft amazed the world with its new Intellectual Property Watchdogs. This new open world game takes place in a world connected by a single operating system known as the CTOS. This Central Operating System allows corporations to control everything from power to trains to signal lights using a single computer. This computer is also capable of recording everything a person does in massive data silos, allowing the corporations to control how people live their lives. However, one man known as Aiden Pearce has found a way to hack in to the system and use it for his own advantage.
The game was introduced to the world using two video footages. The first footage introduces us to the setting of the game. It shows how the United States came up with the CTOS and what threats it poses to human kind. The next video displayed by UbiSoft was the actual Alpha form of the gameplay.
The gameplay footage starts with Aiden Pearce walking down an alleyway. He is looking for his next target to kill. He later enters an art gallery with the help of hacking into communications and disabling it. He later moves in the art gallery and we are exposed to more stuff he can do using the technology around him. The demo ends by Pearce killing his target and the police asking someone to protect him.
Watchdogs is by far the best surprise of E3 this year. Ubisoft did not reveal and release information about the game, but it did confirm that the game has been in development for over two years now. Other information like platform availability and online support was also not revealed. Ubisoft has promised to share a lot more information on the game in the coming few months. For now we can only see the trailer and drool over the amazing game that the publisher just revealed.
Ubisoft also revealed tons of new details for its upcoming games like Rayman Legends, Assassins Creed III, Just Dance 4 and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. For more information on Watchdogs, keep checking back.
