Default Watch Dogs

Quote:
It takes place in the summer of 2003, where during a blackout in New York a disgusted employee unleashed a virus on the city.

Because of this, the city is now controlled by a computer controlled by a major corporation. The computer knows all your actions, thoughts, etc and links everything you do to the system. All data is interconnected.

Players can control an entire surveillance system in the game, and use the computer system as a weapon once hacked.
So damn, what did you guys thought about the new IP from Ubisoft? I was real intrigued by what I saw, and I like the art direction, it reminds me of Syndicate.

I'm intrigued as well. The game came out of nowhere and it already has me wanting more.

Can you say "incredible"? Best game shown at the Expo so far. I definitely wasn't expecting to see something that good at Ubisoft's conference.

And here I thought ACIII was going to be the highlight of the show and along comes this game, it seems like it could bring something quite unique into a open-world game, it all depends on the execution of course but the footage was very promising. Need more details.

I loved it. Game of the show for me so far, and I'm eager to hear more about it.

Were any platforms announced?

I'm definitely intrigued by this. As my boyfriend said it reminds him of 1984.

Don't think any platforms were announced. I've read that Ubisoft kinda avoided mentioning any platform.

Demos like this is why I watch E3. They rarely live up to the hype, but this looked excellent.

I didn't know about this until I randomly saw that it was E3 on G4. It looked pretty good. I'm definitely intrigued by it now.

That was quite interesting.
The graphics and the effects look superb. The idea behind it is really interesting, too.

I'll keep an eye on this one.

The game play for ACIII was incredible, but this is definitely the show stealer so far. Looks absolutely ridiculous. Sweet Jesus, it's like Hitman/GTA/meets every cool thing ever. *droooool*

My pick for Sleeper Game of E3 already.....this one looks awesome.
The protag reminds me soooooo much of Edward Norton in TIH.

My jaw was on the floor watching this. I can't believe Ubisoft just came out of nowhere with this title; it looks absolutely amazing. Wow.

LOL I remember the blackout from 2003.

But yeah, the look of the game struck me as incredible right away. I didn't really know what was happening in the actual demo, but I was very impressed. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out for this.

It sort of reminded me of the first time they showed off Assassin's Creed. Hopefully the final product will be better this time.

During the gameplay of the first character walking through the streets&club with people having little hubs saying"hack"/people's names&stuff..I already imagined myself playing and hacking the A.I. people to find our names&info!

During the shoot out in the streets I was thinking.."What IF there's free roaming like GTA?",I'd be driving fast and when cops are chasing me..I'd hack the street lights like in the gameplay demo to have cars ram into cop cars as I speed away!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking and hoping for. I'd love it if this was free roam. But at the same time, I don't think it could be as detailed if it was a big city.

Yeah, that was something I liked because it gave you the option to choose to save him or not, meaning you aren't intentionally trying to hurt anyone, but you do have that choice and freedom to do so.

Did Ubisoft confirm that this was multi-platform?
