A demo of “Watch Dogs” was available for play at GamesCom 2013. GamesCom started on August 21 and will go until August 25 so be sure to keep checking here for more information about new releases and the next generation of consoles and games.
"Watch Dogs" has a very similar feel to other games by Ubisoft, especially “Assassin’s Creed”. This is definitely a positive as Ubisoft took the things that worked well from previous games and packed them into “Watch Dogs”.
As you walk through the city you can profile people to find out any information about them. This can lead you to hacking bank accounts for money or even stopping crimes by ‘neutralizing’ criminals. Of course, killing people is likely to get the police called and you’ll have to run. Thankfully your options for running are almost limitless as you can scale tall buildings and even stop and restart train systems to help you make your escape.
If you think you’re the only hacker though, you’re dead wrong. In “Watch Dogs” others are trying to hack you as well. After confirming a hacking attempt on yourself a red circle will pop up in the city guiding you to the location of the hacker. The area is usually heavily populated though and the true hacker will be trying to blend in by sitting on a city bench, standing near a parked car or any other variety of innocuous looking activities.
Mobile app: The person using the free mobile app has a top-down view of the “Watch Dogs” map and is able to create a level, place items into the level and can even modify the mode while a friend is playing what he’s created, such as sending more police to come after the player.
While in this mode, killing civilians, failing the mission and other things that might effect your reputation negatively, have no repercussions on you. This mode is free of negative effects for your actions and allows you to simply collect money and experience for your normal gameplay.
