Product Description


All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what’s happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it’s not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.

Welcome to Chicago

In Watch_Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (CTOS) – and it controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents.

Aiden Pearce

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city’s network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy… and more.

Hack the city

Watch_Dogs takes place in a fully simulated living city where, using your smartphone, you have real-time control over the city’s infrastructure. Trap your enemy in a 30-car pileup by manipulating the traffic lights. Stop a train, and then board it to evade the authorities. Narrowly escape capture by quickly raising a drawbridge. Anything connected to the city’s CTOS can become your weapon.

Street justice

Living in inner city Chicago where violence is best answered by violence, you have the skills to take the fight to the streets. Take down enemies by delivering devastating blows with your baton, or experience a shoot-out like never before with a physics simulation that rivals anything in the shooter category. Use a combination of shooting and hacking to gain advantage in any given situation. The streets are designed for you to create your own plan of attack.

High octane driving

Ubisoft Montreal has partnered with studios such as Ubisoft Reflections, the acclaimed studio behind the award-winning Driver series to bring you a game bursting with horsepower. Get behind the wheel of more than 65 vehicles, each with state of the art physics and handling, and explore the massive city while completing missions.

Everything is under control

Disrupt, the all-new game engine dedicated to Watch_Dogs, uses advanced processing and graphics to deliver a stunning visual and an incredibly realistic experience. Disrupt gives you the power to affect the story, the city and the life of the population with your choices creating a ripple effect throughout the city.

Seamless multiplayer experience

Discover new levels of interaction, cooperation and confrontation between players thanks to a brand new multiplayer game system that links the single and multiplayer modes into one seamless experience. That means no menus, no loading screens, just instant open world multiplayer action.

Stay connected with a new way to play

Take your experience beyond the console with a groundbreaking, real-time, companion game. This innovative mobile platform allows players to connect and compete with friends, even when away from their home console. The Watch_Dogs companion game delivers revolutionary dual-screen gameplay that enables you to play from anywhere, at any time.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Delivered more than i expected 27 May 2014
    By 555 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Deluxe Edition|Verified Purchase
    Updated 30/5/2014: down to 4/5 stars
    Unfortunately i had to take one star off now as i get the same annoying mission as many other players: Mission - log in to Uplay (you really need to be a good hacker to do that i guess).
    The servers of Ubisoft were not prepared for this at all, most of the time i am playing offline so i am loosing many features of the game that require the game to be online like the PvP (player v player)
    challenges be it racing, hacking or just killing each other.
    The shadow flickering is getting more annoying day by day, will this ever be fixed?
    Even i do still enjoy the game, as soon as i was been able to log in to Uplay (i am lucky like once every 3 days) i downloaded and installed Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag again to compare those 2 games
    and i have to say that in many aspects mainly controls and gameplay, AC4 is a lot better game, if Watch Dogs would be released last year and i would have to choose between those 2, AC4 is a clear winner
    Other than that, if GTA 5 would be out on PC by now i may would never buy this game this is why i wrote in my original review that Watch Dogs is a good alternative, i still recommend this game, but
    only until GTA 5 comes to PCs if it ever will.

    Original review:
    Amazing game, feels like an alternative for GTA 5 but with some great hardware demanding graphics and same gameplay like Assassin's Creed.
    The map for this open world game is big and i think more space will be added later with DLCs, but its properly done and there is no corner alike, sadly you cannot enter most of the buildings.

    3.0 out of 5 stars FIRST IMPRESSIONS REVIEW 29 May 2014
    By WayT
    Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Deluxe Edition|Verified Purchase
    My Rig: Matches or beats all of the recommended specifications.
    Windows 8.1-64bit, i7-4770@3.9ghz, 16GB@1600mhz RAM, Gigabyte OC GTX780, Z87 Motherboard

    It took 4 hours to download and install! TitanFall, a 50GB game, took less than one hour to do!
    I didn't have any problems with Uplay though, probably because everyone else had given up.

    Let's get something very clear: When Ubisoft originally delayed this game in November 2013, claiming that it needed more work before launch, i did not believe a damn word of it. Here's why:
    *Grand Theft Auto 5--------released 17th September 2013
    *BattleField 4-------------released 1st November 2013
    *CoD: Ghosts---------------released 5th November 2013
    *Assassins Creed 4---------released October 2013
    *KillZone (4) Shadowfall---released November 2013
    Amongst other launch titles as well, ALL of these are well known established franchises that were bound to sell well and i can guarantee that they did not want their new, unestablished franchise to have to compete with them, especially their own game: AC4. They didn't want to compete with all that, would you?
    This games new release date meant it had no competition on that scale.


    To be honest it's a bit disappointing...

    THE GRAPHICS/PERFORMANCE: First off the graphics are not very good, this is not the most important thing in a game, but they hit me straight away, this game is being played on a GTX780 and i know it can handle much more than this. THE LAST OF US ON PLAYSTATION 3 LOOKS BETTER THAN THIS! GTA 5 on my Xbox 360 isn't far off either. Yes it's an open world game, but FarCry 3 and Assassins Creed 4 both look better in my opinion.

    Game looks and plays nothing like what was advertised.

    Visuals have been downgraded and physics are extremely clunky.
    The PC port of this game has had no care at all, horrible mouse acceleration and very badly optimized.
    The online servers are also very slow and multi-player is a lag fest, There is no anti cheat in multilayer as well so expect to fight invincible players.

    Safe your money and buy something else.

    (Purchased on green man gaming originally via uplay key)
    Some things that may help those with technical issues preventing them from trying / liking this game:
    >In Uplay turning off cloud data syncing and using the proxy internet feature can help get you playing.
    >Anti-aliasing up to or over level 4 and textures above high are usually the culprits for sluggish memory performance in this game, keep it below level for and stay away from the texture level at 3Gb requirement if you don't have 4GB on the graphics memory
    >It's a longshot but this might help with some technical issues with games, it helped me with Saints Row 3 (as meeting / being over spec alone didn't), bear in mind I believe this is a motherboard tweak therefore it could fry your machine, you've been warned!!! [...]
    >This is helpful too: [...]

    (DISCLAIMER, I have not played the overly mentioned / compared and legendarily lauded GTAV)
    (10hrs played thus far)
    Everything on high or ultra-settings, Anti-aliasing on level 4 or less

    Man, if your system can handle this beauty and you can get past the customer access lock that is U(Don't)Play then you're in for a freaking treat!

    3.0 out of 5 stars "Entertained" not pleased.
    An engine utilizing GTA V would have been perfict. The game lacked physics and life-like inyeration with the environment. I had fun, but expected more. Rent - don't buy.
