You've Got the Whole World in Your Hand in Watch Dogs

Looks like Ubisoft has been keeping a close eye on Rockstar’s trailers. This brand new Watch Dogs video – yes, another one – outlines the impending adventure’s hacking mechanics, and details how you’ll be able to use your smartphone to take control of Chicago. You’ll need to unleash a virus in each of the city’s districts first, upon which you’ll be able to tap into security cameras and more.
It all sounds like a solid premise, but we’re a little worried about the missions. So far, the French publisher has spent much of its time talking about the many things that you can do in the game, but it hasn’t really explained why you'd actually want to do them. We hope that this doesn’t end up like the original Assassin’s Creed – that game had bags of potential, too, but its campaign was as drab as Altair's outfit.
