Ubisoft saved the best for last in its E3 conference, closing the show with the announcement of Watch Dogs, a stunning thirdperson action game in development at its Montreal studio.
In 2011, eight years after a blackout caused 11 deaths, major US cities are controlled by a centralised operating system, known as CTOS. It knows everything about you - how you think, and what you believe, linking personal information to the systems people use every day. "Today, everything can be hacked," the voiceover explained. "The next assault will do more than just turn out the lights."
Players are cast as Aidan Pierce, who controls Chicago's CTOS."You control an entire infrastructure and surveillance system," said creative director Jonathan Morin. "What would you do with that kind of power?"
