Apparently Ubisoft wants to explore what it means to be truly connected in the upcoming Hack-em-up game, Watch dogs. In the latest dev diary, senior producer Dominic Guay informs fans that connectivity is one of the core pillars of the game, and that players will be able to use their mobile devices in some way, shape or form.
They also said that they wanted to seamlessly integrate singleplayer and multiplayer so that the player doesn’t have to ‘go through a lobby, to menus, to various game settings’. According to the devs, they tried to focus really hard on the connectivity aspect since it was such a core component of the title.
Watch Dogs is a video game set in the near future in which everything is connected, and you play as a brilliant hacker who can manipulate the connections in the city for his own benefits.
Watch Dogs will launch Nov. 19 in North America and Nov. 22 in UK. The game will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Windows PC and is a PlayStation 4 launch title.
