'Watch Dogs' (ALL) Sets Pre-Order Records

by Rainier on May 15, 2014 @ 2:54 p.m. PDT

Watch Dogs is an open-world action-adventure in which players enter the dangerous world of Aiden Pearce, a new class of antihero whose ability to hack into any connected system could be his most powerful weapon.

All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what’s happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it’s not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.

In Watch_Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (ctOS) – and it controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents.

Watch Dogs is now the most pre-ordered new IP in Ubisoft’s history and the most pre-ordered new IP in the entire industry this year. Watch Dogs is also the second- highest pre-ordered Ubisoft game ever.

“These strong pre-orders are a clear indication of players’ anticipation and excitement for Watch Dogs,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “The teams have worked tirelessly to ensure that players will enjoy a top quality game with enormous scope, and we can’t wait to get the game into their hands.”

“There is massive buzz in all of our stores around Watch Dogs,” said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of Merchandising at GameStop. “Based on the current level of customer pre-orders we have received, Watch Dogs is the highest pre-ordered next-gen title to date and most pre-ordered new IP of the year”

Customers still have time to purchase the Watch Dogs Season Pass ($19.99), giving players access to a unique single-player story featuring T-Bone, the brilliant but eccentric hacker; a new Digital Trip game mode, Conspiracy; an exclusive Untouchables Pack; plus new missions, weapons, outfits and more.

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy.  Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city’s network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy…and more.

Use the city of Chicago as your ultimate weapon and exact your own style of revenge.
