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, 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.
Hack the City — Control the city's infrastructure, in real time, with Aiden's cell phone.
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.
Seamless Multiplayer Experience — Discover a new level of interaction, cooperation and confrontation between players thanks to a brand-new multiplayer game system that links the single- and multiplayer modes into one seamless experience.
That means no menus, no loading screens, just instant open-world multiplayer action.
Stay Connected With A New Way To Play — Go beyond the console with a ground-breaking, real-time, companion game.
This innovative mobile platform allows players to connect and compete with friends, even when away from the home console.
The Watch Dogs companion game delivers revolutionary dual-screen gameplay that enables you to play from anywhere, at any time.
Street Justice — Create your own way to attack. Take down enemies by delivering devastating blows with your baton, or use a combination of shooting and hacking to gain advantage in a situation.
Overall, you will have access to more than 30 weapons that rival any shooter.
High-Octane Driving — Get behind the wheel of more than 65 vehicles bursting with horsepower to explore the massive city while completing missions.
Ubisoft Montreal partnered with Ubisoft Reflections, the acclaimed studio behind the award-winning series to develop each vehicle with state-of-the-art physics and handling.
Everything is Under Control — Experience the advanced processing and graphics capabilities of Disrupt, the all-new game engine dedicated to Watch Dogs.
The engine delivers stunning visuals and an incredibly realistic experience, and 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.
Dynamic Navigation — 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 one of the buildings or climb to the rooftops to catch your target.
