Ubisoft has announced a brand new IP at the end of its E3 press conference called Watch Dogs. Again, this is a new IP, not a sequel or a reboot or a re-imagining (and we here at GamersPack love new IPs).
Watch Dogs takes place in a Chicago controlled by a computer system, controlled in turn by a major corporation. In this world, all of your personal information is saved as a “digital shadow” for future use by this corporation.
While it’s not quite obvious what’s the player’s objectives are, from what was shown in the gameplay video, players will be able to explore the huge city and hack into almost everything, from mobile devices to security cameras and traffic lights.
Watch Dogs looks really nice, and seems to combine stealth with action, much like the Hitman series.
There is also what seems to be some sort of cooperative multiplayer seamless intertwined with the single-player experience.
Watch both the game’s trailer, which explains a bit about the world, and the gameplay demonstration to get a deeper understanding of what Watch Dogs is all about.
No release date was given, or even which consoles will play the game.
