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.
Pre-Orders for Watch_Dogs at GameStop in North America will receive an exclusive poster designed by famed comic-book artist, Alex Ross. The posters design is the inspiration behind the games box art and captures the essence of Aiden Pearce.
Watch_Dogs will be released starting on November 19, 2013.
