Watch Dogs Looks Like Assassin's Creed With Computers

Open world plus hackers plus guns equals...whoa!

By Daniel Jones on 6/5/2012
At Ubisoft's E3 press conference, the French publisher capped their show with something fresh. A new title called Watch Dogs is an open world, cinematic thriller about a hacker who is taking on the government.The demo showed the protagonist Pierce infiltrating an art gallery in downtown Chicago looking for a target named Joseph Demarco. After meeting up with an informant, Pierce draws the security detail out into the streets and takes them on in an intense rain-soaked gun battle while civilians flee from their cars.

The demo showed off the graphical fidelity of the game, as the gameplay transitioned smoothly into the cutscenes and the rain and lighting effects rival the best in the business. The gameplay looks like it will mix hacking abilities and gadgets with the intense shootouts as Pierce was shown at one point using an EMP remote to disable street lights and create a diversion.

The game looks like a mix of GTA and Assassin's Creed with a healthy dose of computer chic thrown in. No release date was announced by Watch Dogs definitely looks like a game to keep an eye on. Check out the demo below and stay tuned to The Game Effect for more from E3 2012.
