Watch Dogs: Game Trailer from E3 2012
Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Trailer Blows Up Online
Ubisoft unveiled the trailer for Watch Dogs, it's latest foray into murky third-person espionage games, at E3 in Los Angeles. Watch Dogs looks fantastic: the folks that gave us the Splinter Cell series have not given up their commitment to lurking through the darkness, and we're all richer for it.
Actually, Watch Dogs reminds us more of Continuum, which is airing on Canadian cable TV (as well as every Torrent indexing site in the universe).
You play as Aiden Pearce, who has an array of conventional and digital weapons at his disposal, including the ability to control traffic lights and mobile phone networks. Dystopian? Yeah.
Watch Dogs, a fairly convincing argument against digital-spying bills getting foisted upon us in Washington and Ottawa, is set in a world where your brain is a leverage point for outside interests: this is only sci-fi to people who have never heard of Facebook or AdSense.
Gameplay looks to marry elements of Splinter Cell and Grand Theft Auto: notably missing are on-screen targeting elements when Pearce is shooting at his enemies.
Watch Dogs looks to take the concept of open-world gaming to a new level. Check out the game trailer below, and decide for yourself.
The platforms: Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
