Ubisoft has confirmed Watch Dogs, its E3 2012-announced new IP from Ubisoft Montreal, will be available as a launch title for PlayStation 4 this holiday.
Watch Dogs puts players in the shoes of Aiden Pearce, a vigilante who uses his ability to hack into the Chicago central operating system with his smartphone to control almost every element of the city. Aiden can tap into security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop a chase, and more.
“In Watch Dogs, players will experience the realities of living in our fully connected society, where individuals and corporations are at risk of exposure by our ever-increasing reliance on networks and technology,” said Ubisoft.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot added, “Ubisoft has a strong history of supporting new technologies with unique and creative offerings. The power and capability of the PS4 allows the Watch_Dogs team to further push the boundaries of what was previously thought possible in interactive entertainment.”
Watch Dogs will also be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. Watch a real-time demo of the game running on PlayStation 4 below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
