Watch_Dogs is an open world action-adventure video game in which players control a vigilante named Aiden Pearce, who can hack into various electronic devices tied to the city’s central operating system (CtOS), allowing numerous methods for the player to solve various objectives, according to the game description from Wikipedia. For example, Aiden Pearce can hack into people’s phones to retrieve bank data and steal funds, trigger breakdowns in equipment to distract other characters and hack into traffic lights to cause crashes. The player needs to discover particular targets to kill, evading the police and following potential victims in order to stop their would-be killers. Combat uses a combination of stealth components and parkour, along with the mechanics of a cover-based third-person shooter.
Nvidia and Ubisoft worked together on the title to implement support of TXAA antialiasing, HBAO+ (horizon-based ambient occlusion), 4K surround for extreme gaming setups and so on. TXAA and HBAO+ will exclusive work only on Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics cards.
Watch_Dogs is believed to be the one of the most anticipated video games in 2014 by many market observers since it brings never-before-seen in-game capabilities and its objectives are completely different from other titles on the market.
