Using the in- game smartphone, players have the ability to view a plethora of options,including the ability a descriptive background of A. I characters. In the main game, players take control of Aiden Pearce, a vigilante who can hack into various electronic devices tied to the city's central operating system (ct. OS), allowing various methods for the player to solve numerous objectives.[1. The hacking mechanic in the game is performed directly from Aiden's in- game smartphone, which is equipped with multiple applications, namely the "profiler" and the "crime prevention system"; the former allows the player to access information on any citizen in the city, while the latter notifies the player when a crime is likely to occur in the vicinity. The phone is also equipped with applications that interact directly with the environment around the player; for example, players can hack into NPC's phones to retrieve bank data and steal funds as well as unlock new cars, weapons, and in- game music, or they can hack into traffic lights to cause collisions.[1. Players can also receive information on civilians via augmented reality feeds, providing them with information on demographics, health and potential behaviour. Equipment is also provided by smartphone apps, which can be used to summon cars and weaponry.
Players can stop trains, raise security barriers, and black out the entire city and can slow down time to shoot. The game's combat utilises a combination of stealth components and limited parkour (there is no jumping up or across), along with the mechanics of a cover- based third- person shooter.[1. The game allows the players to use non- lethal attacks and avoid killing anyone should they decide to, except the three main antagonists of the game, Damien Brenks, Lucky Quinn and Delford "Iraq" Wade. The hacking element of the game can also be used in combat situations to eliminate opponents, create diversions, or create cover. It can also be used as a stealth tool to sneak past guards. In combat, auto- aim and a cover system are available as assistance against enemies. If players take damage, their health meter will gradually regenerate.
If players commit crimes while playing, the police may respond, as indicated by a meter in the head- up display. On the meter, the displayed levels indicate the amount of attention the crime demands; if the player reaches the maximum fifth level, efforts by law enforcement to incapacitate players become very aggressive and increasingly difficult. When players have escaped the officers' line of sight, the level enters a cooldown mode, which recedes when players escape the search area (as displayed on the mini- map). As the game proceeds, the player can improve Aiden's skills either by expending skill points or earning skills and perks by completing side missions and collecting various items from the in game world, such as finding QR codes on the sides of buildings or finding ct. OS servers collecting information on the citizens of Chicago. Alongside the single- player mode, Watch Dogs features an asynchronous online multiplayer mode.
One element to the multiplayer mode is a one- on- one interaction, in which one player secretly joins the single- player experience of another player and attempts to install a "back- door virus" onto their smartphone.[1. In addition, the game features an eight- player free roam mode.[1. Other multiplayer modes include car races, competitive decryption combat, and a ct.
OS mobile challenge.[b] A mobile application is also available for smartphones and tablets that allows players to challenge another player in- game and use hacks that triggers traps, in an attempt to stop them from succeeding.[1. SynopsisSetting and charactersIn the backstory of Watch Dogs, a computer hacker is discovered to have been behind the Northeast blackout of 2. This event prompted the Blume Corporation to develop ct. OS (Cen. Tral Operating System). The ct. OS supercomputer connects to everyone and everythingвЂ”including personal information, security cameras, and traffic lights, effectively making Chicago, Illinois (the setting of the game), the most technologically advanced city in the world. In Watch Dogs, players take control of Aiden Pearce (Noam Jenkins), a grey hathacker and vigilante. After a hacking job gone wrong, a hit is sent out on Aiden.
While intending to kill him, hitmen accidentally kill his niece Lena, and Aiden seeks to bring his own kind of justice to the people responsible, all while protecting his sister Nicole (Anne Hopkins) and nephew Jackson (Nicholas Bode). Aiden meets a host of allies over the course of the game: Jordi Chin (Aaron Douglas), a "fixer" and Aiden's hired partner; Clara Lille (Isabelle Blais), a tattoo artist and member of the "Ded. Sec" hacker group (under the alias 'Bad.
Boy. 17'); and Raymond "T- Bone" Kenney (John Tench), a former ct. OS engineer, and the hacker responsible for the north- east blackout in 2.
Aiden also encounters many enemies, including Delford "Iraq" Wade (Jerod Hayes),[1. Dermot "Lucky" Quinn (Myron Natwick), owner of the Merlaut Hotel and crime boss of Chicago's crime underground. Other characters include Damien Brenks (Daniel Kash), Aiden's former mentor and partner- in- crime; and Maurice Vega (Christopher Jacot), the triggerman who caused the accident that claimed Lena's life. In October 2. 01. Aiden Pearce and his mentor Damien Brenks launch an electronic bank heist at the Merlaut Hotel, with Aiden transferring the funds through his smartphone.[1. When they come across a strange file and alert another hacker, Damien tries to find the hacker, giving them both away.
Unable to talk Damien out of it, Aiden stops him by leaving.[2. Fearing for the safety of his familyвЂ”sister Nicole, and her children Lena and JacksonвЂ”Aiden decides to drive them to safety under the guise of a surprise trip. However, on the way, two hitmen are hired to intercept the car and take Aiden out. One of the hitmen, Maurice Vega, fires the shot that crashes the car and puts Lena in a coma, and she dies two months later.[2. A year later, Aiden, now a vigilante known as "The Fox", or "The Vigilante", tracks down Maurice in the Parker Square district.[2. After a fruitless interrogation about Maurice's contractor, Aiden leaves Maurice in the hands of Jordi Chin while he hacks the ct.
OS to help them escape unnoticed.[2. As Aiden investigates further, Damien (whom he cut ties with since the Merlaut robbery) approaches him, requesting to find the other hacker from the Merlaut job.[2. Upon Aiden's refusal, Damien kidnaps Nicole, forcing Aiden to comply with Damien's demands in order to ensure her safety, though he manages to prevent Jackson from being kidnapped and leaves him under the care of his psychiatrist.[2.
With the help of Clara Lille, a member of hacking syndicate Ded. Sec, Aiden tracks down the second hacker: ex- military gang leader Delford "Iraq" Wade.[2. Aiden obtains the electronic key to Iraq's server room and obtains a sample of the data from his servers.[2. He and Clara find that Iraq has secrets on almost every citizen of Chicago, effectively protecting his gang from the authorities.[2. When they come across encrypted data beyond Clara's ability, she directs Aiden to seek out Raymond "T- Bone" Kenney.[3.
After Aiden completes some tasks for him, T- Bone agrees to help decrypt the data.[3. Aiden mounts an assault on Iraq's compound, making it to his server room. After Aiden downloads the server data, Iraq confronts him; Aiden kills him and leaves the compound.[3.
