Be Prepared To Be Blown Away As ‘Watch_Dogs’ Raises The Bar For Sandbox Type Video Games

WATCH_DOGS

Upcoming video game Watch_Dogs aims to take open-world gaming to a whole new level, granting the player more control than ever before.

Watch Dogs

Excited about GTA V that’s out this September? You should be. Prepare to have your head explode then – as you feast your eyes upon the next open world giant of the video game world: Watch_Dogs.

If you’re a fan of the GTA/Assassin’s Creed/Red Dead Redemption style of games, you’ll want to check this one out for sure. They’ve put so much work into Watch_Dogs that a brand new game engine — ‘Disrupt’ — was created specifically with the game in mind.

As protagonist Aiden Pearce, you will be able to freely roam the expansive in-game world and interact with pretty much anything, just like in the aforementioned games. The difference with Watch_Dogs is that you have in your possession a device that can hack into literally anything — people’s backgrounds, their bank accounts, traffic lights, trains, and pretty much any electronic device around the city. This makes for immensely varied, multi-consequential scenarios that all play out depending on what you decide to do with the information you collect from the people around you and how you choose to mess with the city’s electronics.

Words don’t really do it justice. Check out these crisp video previews of what to expect:

Watch_Dogs is scheduled for all the current gen consoles at the end of 2013, and will also be one of the launch titles for the PS4, presumably with even slicker graphics.
