The lights are on
Watch Dogs deals with themes of privacy and organizational surveillance, and you can hear those topics and more discussed by the game's Ubisoft Montreal developers in this hour-long panel from the recent San Diego Comic-Con.
Content director Thomas Geffroyd and story designer Kevin Shortt talk with moderator/actress Aisha Tyler about a wide-range of topics involving the game, including real-world privacy issues, side missions, the team's approach to all the game's characters (including the NPCs), and the staging of its trailers so far.
For more on the SDCC playable demo of the game, including how the game is blending single- and multiplayer, check out Ben's hands-on impressions.
Watch Dogs hits the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on November 19, and at the launches of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

I'm so psyched about this game. Just come out already!
I really enjoyed that viewing that panel! I'm pretty stoked for Watch Dogs. It'll be my first next-gen game.
Wondering if they'll make a quick alteration to the game and give a character the last name "Snowden"?
At first I thought the article said "does PIRACY exist?".
I must not be fully awake yet...
Oh man is Aisha Tyler hot.
Got my collectors edition pre-ordered! Can't wait! The only thing I'm stuck on still is which new game to play first?!?! Way to many good games being released at once for the new console releases!
So very awesome
Honestly, true privacy really doesn't, but oh well.
Watch Dogs is going to be a great game.
Added to watch later
