Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot took the stage during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference to announce an impressive new gameWatch Dogs.”

The backstory starts in 2003, when a power outage left 55 million Americans in the dark. The power outage was caused by a disgruntled employee who uploaded a virus that crippled the power grid on the east coast.

The government’s response was CTOS, a program that controls a city’s entire information network: the power grid, traffic grid, personal data networks, and everything else. CTOS controls the city, but also farms data on individuals. Who then controls CTOS?  The player, of course.

Take a look at the trailer after the break:

The main character is Aiden Pearce, a hacker who has access to all of the info CTOS compiles, and can pull up everyone’s personal data at will.

“Development of Watch Dogs is being led by Ubisoft Montreal,” commented Ubisoft, “with a team comprised of industry veterans from blockbuster franchises like Assassin’s Creed, Rainbow 6 and Far Cry.

Watch Dogs blends cutting-edge technologies and sophisticated game design into a realistic and living open world where players must use any means at their disposal to take down a corrupt system.”

Watch Dogs will release in 2013 for PC, XBox 360 and PS3.
