Is Watch Dogs Ready To Compete Against the Appeal Of Grand Theft Auto V


All it takes is the swipe of a finger. For Watch Dogs to take you to a world were you gain control this system 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 of Chicago residents.




You will be playing as Aiden Pearce a brilliant hacker 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 NPC, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop evading enemies and police. You will be using the city of Chicago as your ultimate weapon and exact your own style of revenge









1.      Are there day/night cycles in the game? 

Yes, there is a real time day and night cycle. Time of day is not scripted.

2.      What weather systems can the player expect to experience?

We have a lot of different weather possibilities from sunny and calm, to stormy and rainy. Wind, rain, fog and clouds all have several degrees of intensity and are all systemic.

3.      How do you manage to ensure every NPC is unique? 

Every NPC has unique qualities that distinguish him or her from others in the game. There are over 3000 character kits and an almost infinite amount of unique profiler possibilities.

4.      How many concurrent NPCs can there be?

The number of NPCs players can encounter at one time depends on a variety of factors like time of day and location. If it’s mid-day, then players will see more NPCs going about their busy lives. At night, we have fewer NPCs reflecting the patterns we see in the real world. The downtown core of Chicago is also a busier area with lots more citizens than a more industrial region, for example. Our main goal was to ensure that the world feels as alive as you’d expect in a major city like Chicago. And of course, the next gen consoles allow us to place more NPCs in the world than we’ve ever been able to do in current gen consoles.
So it’s hard to give specific numbers, but rest assured, the city will feel alive like players have never seen before with many unique NPCs populating the city.

5.      Can you hack absolutely every NPC in the game?

Yes, every NPC can be hacked. Based on their profile, a variety of hacks are possible. You can also hack elements in the world to influence the behaviour of NPC’s around.
6.      What different environments can the player expect?

Chicago is a rich and diverse city and we want the player to explore every inch of it There are 6 different districts in WD, all with really different looks, types of NPC’s and vibe.

7.      How many different vehicles can the player drive?

Over 75 different vehicles from bikes to compact, heavy, muscle, off road, SUV, luxury cars, or speed cars, all of them with their own realistic physics.
8.      How many different hacks are available in the game?

Over 100 hacks.


So after everything that has been shown of watch dogs, the cool hacking features, tablet integration that allows for anyone to enjoy on the go via mobile device. It is still the question that is looming over some of the gamers throughout the world. 




Is Watch Dogs going to be a better open world game from its robust in game NPC that all have a back story rather it be depressing or innovative to the in game world that would ultimately lead to a player caring if they killed a pedestrian in a police chase. Or even its sightly more strategically player kill contracts will win the hearts of many. 

I am must going to have to wait until I get my hands on this title before I make a final decision. But you can pick this title up on May 27, 2014 so you can draw your own conclusion.
