All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what’s happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it’s not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.
In Watch Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (CTOS) – and it controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents.
You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city’s network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy…and more.
Use the city of Chicago as your ultimate weapon and exact your own style of revenge.
HACK THE CITY
Watch_Dogs takes place in a fully simulated living city where, using your smartphone, you have real-time control over the city’s infrastructure. Trap your enemy in a 30-car pileup by manipulating the traffic lights. Stop a train, and then board it to evade the authorities. Narrowly escape capture by quickly raising a drawbridge. Anything connected to the city’s CTOS can become your weapon.
Living in inner city Chicago where violence is best answered by violence, you have the skills to take the fight to the streets. Take down enemies by delivering devastating blows with your baton, or experience a shoot-out like never before with a physics simulation that rivals anything in the shooter category. Use a combination of shooting and hacking to gain advantage in any given situation. The streets are designed for you to create your own plan of attack. Overall, you will have access to more than 30 traditional weapons.
HIGH OCTANE DRIVING
Ubisoft Montreal has partnered with studios such as Ubisoft Reflections, the acclaimed studio behind the award-winning Driver series to bring you a game bursting with horsepower. Get behind the wheel of more than 65 vehicles, each with state of the art physics and handling, and explore the massive city while completing missions.
EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL
Disrupt, the all-new game engine dedicated to Watch Dogs, uses advanced processing and graphics to deliver a stunning visual and an incredibly realistic experience. Disrupt gives you the power to affect the story, the city and the life of the population with your choices creating a ripple effect throughout the city.
Watch Dogs gives you the ability to not only use the city’s ctOS to your advantage, but the streets as well. In real-world Chicago, cut through buildings or climb to the rooftops to catch your target.

An amazing new franchiseheerox328 | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all heerox328's reviews »
Don't let the hate and ignorance that has largely drowned this game deceive you. It is amazing and it is a brand new franchise that has brought something different to open worlds.
Yes, Ubisoft downgraded the visuals on PC to make the game work on Xbox 360 and PS3, but that hardly takes away from the amazing experience it is. There is also a restoration mod to restore the game to its E3 2012 visuals anyways.
Back on track, you fill the shoes of Aiden Pierce, middle-aged uncle who's niece ends up dead because of a botched hacking job. He finds himself on a quest for vengeance as he makes his way through the sprawling city that is Chicago.
The story is top notch and the gameplay is revolutionary. For the first time ever, you can take control of a near-future urban city by hacking various technology. You truly do feel empowered and it changes the experience quite a bit.
This isn't even mentioning the seamless integration of MP where players can come in and hack your phone, leading you on a chase to find the trespasser. There is also a racing game, team death match, free roam, and various activities to keep players busy for hundreds of hours.
Watch_Dogs truly is one of the most innovative and different brand new franchises that we have. I am absolutely looking forward to the expected sequel and hopefully it will not be plagued by pre-launch PR missteps like this game was.
Great Deluxe EditionKveni | Nov. 11, 2014 | See all Kveni's reviews »
There were a few hiccups at the launch of this game, but EVERY game has bugs, so it wasn't a big a deal to me as it was to other people who got it. The game is awesome, the storyline is great, the gameplay itself is smooth and very fun, and altogether, I REALLY enjoyed this game. I was hoping it would be a bigger game than it was, but people chewed it up so much because of a graphical change that a lot of people threw it aside. I'm not saying it WASN'T a big game, it was a HUGELY popular game, and had a LOT of Pre-Orders for a brand new IP. The Deluxe Edition gives gamers a lot more game time as it adds new some new missions to complete, which are actually quite fun. This is worth it if you want the Ultimate Watch_Dogs experience.
Good Game, But Quite a Few Issues at Launch...phoenix1120 | May 31, 2014 | See all phoenix1120's reviews »
Personally, I really like the game. The bugs can be frustrating, and they including freezing, crashing, controls acting up, stuttering, etc. But what is here is extremely promising and really fun when it works properly. The gameplay is really fresh and the online multiplayer seamlessly woven into the singleplayer campaign is genius. All in all it's very good, albeit buggy. If I can do anything to reassure you it's that Ubisoft has a pretty good track record to updating their games and fixing problems, so I have no doubt they will continue this trend with Watch_Dogs. If you're curious to see some gameplay, check out my video (sort of) review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpcWpwltwDw
