Get A Closer Look At Hacking In Chicago

Ubisoft is bringing its brand of open world gameplay into a contemporary setting this November with Watch Dogs. We've heard a lot about the game's focus on hacking, but a new video gives us a more in-depth look at what's possible.

The most important new item is that there are 45 different hacks that Aiden Pearce can use, and these are unlocked via a skill tree. Points are earned by hacking data, and you can't do that without tapping into the local nodes and installing a back door.

We're eager to see what's new with Watch Dogs from Gamescom next week. Until then, this trailer will have to hold us over.

Watch Dogs will be released on November 19, 2013, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version will also be released this fall.

  • I can't wait. This will be my first PS4 game.
  • I'm really excited for this game!
  • I hope that you can't unlock all of these throughout the game. Are once you get to a certain level it gets pretty tough to unlock the rest.

  • I'm actually really looking forward to having friends interact with me through the ipad app. Trolling me as I run from the cops. These are the things that excite me haha

  • The idea of turning hacking into a single button press turns me off. Seems to me this game is 90% zeitgeist theme. I'll pass.
  • So sweet! I'm getting the PC version. It's gonna be an amazing November!

  • Cause a blackout? Sounds a little extreme for a phone.
  • impressed, the idea of side quests to advance your hacking area and capabilities sounds like a great thing. I am wondering though, how well it will integrate into the combat and driving scenario's. Either way, I am still excited for this game.

  • I wonder what hackers will think of this games realness. Will it be true to the way things work and such. If it shows any actual coding and things like that even or if all the hacking is just behind the scenes.
  • Getting this when it comes out, one of my most anticipated titles!

  • I'll be hacking every node I can find as early in the game as I can. Total control? Yes, please!
  • Oh this is Deus Ex hacking pimped!!!!!!  My goal is to get the blackout hack ASAP!!!!!

  • I've bee pretty impressed with this game so far. My hopes are high for this game to be spectacular.

  • When I finally get a PS4, this and Infamous will the first games I go after.
  • Looks better each time they release new information.. I'll be playing this for sure on PS4, after Killzone and Black Flag.

  • Oh I'm so excited.

  • I'm just really excited that this game takes place in Chicago.

  • Reminds me of a variation of 'Point of Interest' tv show. Also, I'm glad to finally see Chicago being used as a setting.

  • Is it constantly raining in the game? It's like in Deus Ex: Human Revolution where it was perpetual night.

  • Those graphics look stunning! That has to be next gen...
