Ubisoft have released a new trailer for the upcoming title, Watch Dogs, titled ‘Welcome to Chicago.’
The video introduces you to the city you will be roaming about and causing trouble in during the game, with a narrator commenting on how Chicago has been designed to feel truly alive. It is explained that the city is full of unique lives for you to hack your way into, as well as a progressive world that will face accidents and events without your involvement. The game’s engine is the key to this world, as it allows for natural weather patterns and the passing of time, which further emphasise the feeling of reality.
Watch Dogs also boasts ‘endless possibilities’ with a multitude of different ways to connect the world. Due to the nature of the game, other players could be watching you when you least expect it and anyone could be a killer. Mess with the wrong people, and you’ll soon find a bounty on your head. However, with the right tricks, all the power will be in the palm of your hand, making you a force to be reckoned with.
From the trailer, we can see that Watch Dogs will no doubt be an immersive experience, set in a world quite unlike any other. Now we just have to see if the gameplay holds up to the hype, and with no current plans for a demo, there is still a while to wait before we can dive in.
Watch Dogs is due for release on May 27th. For more information, check out the official site.
