Shown off during tonight’s PlayStation Meeting, Watch_Dogs has been confirmed as a launch title for PlayStation 4 (yes, that’s a thing now), alongside versions for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
As the game was previously confirmed for non-Nintendo platforms only, you can read up on some details you may have missed in the past, below:
In Watch_Dogs, players will experience the realities of living in our fully connected society, where individuals and corporations are at risk of exposure by our ever-increasing reliance on networks and technology.
Players will assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) and control almost every element of the city. Aiden will be able to tap into the city’s omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control systems such as traffic lights or public transportation to stop a chase, and more. The city of Chicago is now the ultimate weapon.
We’ve been saying since its announcement back at E3 2012 that its in-game menu system would make for a perfect match with the Wii U’s GamePad, and it looks like that’s becoming a reality when it launches – if reports are to be believed – later this year, alongside the PlayStation 4.
