Watch Dogs feeds off the fear that many people have and that is a fear of how big corperations use technology to watch us. Watch Dogs plays on this fear by giving the player control of a whole cities control system and the information of all the people who dwll on it and it is thois information and this control which you use as a primary weapon.
The gameplay shows off what is, at it’s heart, a stealth game in order to gain access to the building you have to jam communacations and hack devices to gain information. This is all conducted straight from the device in your pocket, the device that gives you access to anything that is controlled by a computer and allows you sleuth around through peoples technological lives at will.
Watch Dogs isnt all about stealth and technology, while your device can show you someones violence probability it is your trusty night stick which comes in handy when all else fails but it isn’t just brute force that can help you out in hostile situations. While making your escape, hacking the traffic lights at an intersection provides just the right amount of cover for when the heavily armed guards arrive and a shootout ensues.
Having supposedly seen all that the game can do, we then see the scene pan out to show that you are in a city full of multiple players all of whom are able to hack into these systems and all watch each others backs. If i had to class this game or make a comparison it would be a more intelligent Grand Theft Auto with stealth elements and open world multiplayer. Want it as much as I do? Well looks like we could be in for a long wait as the only other information made available is that the game is coming to next gen consoles.
