Watch Dogs

Watch Dogs Cover

Watch Dogs is an open-world action game with stealth elements from French studio Ubisoft Montreal. It is set in a fictional version of Chicago, where ubiquitous computer software called ctOS controls the city’s infrastructure and monitors every single resident.

Everything is connected to the ctOS network, from traffic lights to security cameras and mobile phones. This means a huge opportunity to the game’s protagonist, Aiden Pearce – as a hacker, he can access someone’s personal data, eavesdrop on phone conversations, and jam phone signals. Even more impressively, it’s also possible to raise bridges and barriers, control subway trains, and rupture nearby water pipes: abilities which definitely come in handy when escaping police.

Watch Dogs has a reputation system, so the way Aiden accomplishes his goals is going to affect the disposition of various NPCs. Harming many innocent civilians will result in him being denounced as a murderer, causing people to react negatively to the hacker’s presence.
