Ubisoft debuted a new gameplay series for their upcoming open world action-adventure stealth game, Watch_Dogs.
“A software bug led to a breakdown of services during the Northeast blackout of 2003, including communication, transportation and power.
Now, 10 years later, how much more secure are we?” Check out the hacking features in Part 1 of gameplay series and discover how vulnerable we really are.
“The game is built around the concept of information warfare, data being interconnected, and the world’s increasing use of technology—questioning who exactly runs the computers they depend on. The game is set in an alternate reality version of Chicago, Illinois, which is one of many cities to featurea supercomputer known as a “CtOS” (Central Operating System).
The system controls almost every piece of technology in the city, and contains information on all of the city’s residents and activities which can be used for various purposes. In the game’s universe, the Northeast blackout of 2003 was found to be caused by a hacker, prompting the development of CtOS.
The game will follow an antihero named Aiden Pearce, a highly skilled hacker described as a person who uses both “fists and wits.”
