Watch Dogs – Welcome To Chicago

Chicago. The Windy City. Home to deep dish pizzas and Wrigley Field. Chicago is also the most surveilled city in the world, which makes it the perfect setting for Watch Dogs. We’ve shared our insights about Chicago with you already, but now we’re back to show you why the Second City will become a premiere destination, thanks in part to the powerful next-gen engine Watch Dogs is built on.

Grab Watch Dogs for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 or PC on May 27 and step into Aiden Pearce’s shoes as he hunts down the people who hurt his family. The PS4 and PS3 versions will come with their own exclusive content, including an in-game outfit and bonus missions. The Wii U version will be coming at a later date.

Players will assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) and control almost every element of the city. Aiden will be able to tap into the city’s omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control systems such as traffic lights or public transportation to stop a chase, and more. The city of Chicago is now the ultimate weapon.
