At Sony’s PlayStation Meeting 2013, Ubisoft revealed that its upcoming game, Watch_Dogs, will be available for the launch of the just announced PlayStation 4 system. After the event, a press release was sent out, listing the other systems that the new IP will be playable on, including the PS3, XBox 360, Wii U, and PC.
During the PlayStation Meeting, new open-world gameplay footage for the game was shown. You can check it out below in addition to some new high-resolution screens:
Players will assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicagos central operating system (ctOS) and control almost every element of the city. Aiden will be able to tap into the citys omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control systems such as traffic lights or public transportation to stop a chase, and more. The city of Chicago is now the ultimate weapon.
Watch_Dogs will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Windows PC. It is also possible that the title will show up on other next-gen systems.
