It looks rather incredible, with the only odd bit about it the way you open doors (with your entire body / face). I’m really intrigued as to how large and open the game is. I like the fact you have to hack into the CtOS nodes to gain access to the surrounding area. Reminds me a lot of synchronising with view points in Assassin’s Creed (unsurprising really, considering both games are made by Ubisoft).
I’m also a fan of the morality system in the game. With all this hacking power, what will you decide is right or wrong? Over at Kill Screen, they have a decent article on whether Watch Dogs is a fantasy, a nightmare, or a reality. Who is in control of surveillance? Who watches the watchers?
Below the break is another Watch Dogs video which talks about the use of hacking as a weapon. If you had this power, would choices would you make? Onwards!
