Watch Dogs – We are Data

Watch_Dogs_box_artWithout doubt one of the most anticipated next gen games, Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs continues to ramp up its PR train with a new interactive website that allows you to discover how data controls the cities of Paris, London and Berlin in these hyperconnected times.

Sourcing open data that is freely accessible, users can explore the three European cities, displaying live Twitter, Flickr and Instagram updates, underground train locations and Wi-Fi hotspots. It also shows the location of CCTV cameras and traffic lights, as well as the statistical information of city districts based on net income, unemployment and crime rate.


Set in Chicago, where a central network of computers connects everyone and everything, Watch_Dogs explores the impact of technology within our society. Using the city as your weapon, you will embark on a personal mission to inflict your own brand of justice.

Chicago’s overarching network is known as the Central Operating System (ctOS), and it controls almost all of the city’s technology and information – including key data on all of the city’s residents.

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you’ll monitor and hack those around you by manipulating the ctOS from the palm of your hand. You’ll access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy… and more.
