The lights are on
We've known for a long time Watch Dogs would take players to Chicago, but now thanks to a new trailer we know more about the digital citizens that will inhabit it.
As detailed in the above video, Chicago's populace is an important part of Watch Dogs' formula. Ubisoft promises every NPC in the game can be hacked in some way, and each will have a unique identity that determines how they react to the world around them.
Any one of the game's NPCs could lead to hidden secrets or unexpected events, and any citizen could be a victim, a killer, or another player hiding in plain sight. Cross the wrong citizen, and you may find yourself with a bounty on your head.
Watch Dogs is releasing May 27 for all consoles except the Wii U version, which will be coming at a later date. Be sure to check out our hands-on impressions of the game here.

It does look pretty cool........
I'm so pumped for this game :) I requested May 27th off work already :)
Damn, I got a very GTA-esque vibe from this trailer, in a good way. Looking seeexy, Watch Dogs ;)
Hm... Another misuse of "begs the question," et tu Ubi? Et tu!?!?
man i really hope this game lives up to the hype
I'll definitely be pre-ordering Watch_Dogs for my birthday. I can't wait to play it.
I was already planning on getting this, but not totally excited. Now I'm super hyped. I love how any citizen could be a killer, cancer survivor, molester, whatever. I also like how they made the protagonist look like a totally normal guy. Not just the face, but the clothing as well. So glad this is on last gen so I can get it.
Day One on this. The PS4 needs me to keep feeding it or there will be consequences.
Wow it's kind of sad when you don't recognize most of the places displayed in the video and you live just outside of Chicago. It looks great and the fact that real players can throw a wrench into your game is a nice and cool feature.
I know this is just a teaser thing, but this looks amazing. Can't wait.
And another winner from Ubisoft. They never cease to amaze.
I am definitely getting this for PS4.
