The folks over at Ubisoft have released a new video in anticipation of their upcoming game Watch Dogs. This new video, called “The Amazing Street Hack” details the real-life consequences of possessing a smartphone app that can turn common people into powerful hackers. Hidden cameras record users reactions as they unwillingly hack different situations in the streets of Los Angeles. Everything is ‘hacked’ in the video, lights, cars, ATM machines. Of course when the police show up, the new hackers do what any experienced hacker would do…deny it! Check out the video below:
For those unfamiliar with Watch Dogs, players assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt his family, gamers are able to monitor and hack their enemies by manipulating everything connected to the city’s Central Operating System (ctOS).
The ctOS controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents. Access security cameras, download personal information to locate targets, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop enemies and more. Watch Dogs allows the player to use Chicago as their ultimate weapon and exact their own style of revenge.
Watch Dogs will be available worldwide on May 27, 2014, for PlayStation®4 system, PlayStation®3 system, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
