Watch Dogs (stylised as WATCH DOGS) is an upcoming open world action-adventure video game, developed by Ubisoft Montreal, best known for their work on the Far Cry and Assassin's Creed franchises, to be released in 2013 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Watch Dogs centers on the player's ability to hack into various electronic systems, either to obtain and control information or to destroy those devices completely at specific times. The game was first unveiled during Ubisoft's press conference at E3 2012. The main gameplay mechanic of Watch Dogs is the use of hacking and surveillance. The game's protagonist Aiden Pearce can use any device tied to the city's central operating system (ctOS) as a weapon against it.
