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

The wind and the rain

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.

@get2sammyb I agree with you on that one. The potential wasn't realised till 2 With Assassins Creed. Ive got a feeling Watch Dogs might end up being the same where we have to wait for a sequel before its ideas are fully realised

@get2sammyb Fair enough i'll agree AC:II was the best and AC:III being the worst, i hate the way they changed the combat system.

Ive never played AC1, i started off on 2 but i still like Altair more than Ezio =/

Maybe it was because of the brief times you got to play as him in AC2: Revelations

@get2sammyb R1 + X + (L) = parkour! I still feel like those games have no point, even though there's a big ol' story arch. Just... who cares, man? But, in the series' defense, I loved that Afrika game (safari photography "fps" where you don't kill stuff). Yeah, I hope WD isn't devoid of a plot. You can only run around a city doing inconsequential stuff for so long before you sell it back to GameStop (gta4 cough). P.S. I preferred AC1's lack of dialogue cause it followed that adage of not opening your mouth to confirm whether you're an idiot. 2 was a time warp and 3 was crazy not-p.c.
