Ubisoft boasts about intelligent NPCs populating the Windy City
Ubisoft has revealed a new trailer for its upcoming open-world computer hacking adventure Watch_Dogs today showing off the game's Chicago setting.
The open-world urban environment based on the real-life city immediately brings to mind Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series, with hundreds of NPCs going about their days while the player wreaks havoc. Ubisoft says Watch_Dogs will feature "over 3,000 different character kits and a nearly infinite amount of unique profiler possibilities."
Watch_Dogs is being developed by Ubisoft Montréal, and is slated for a 27th May launch on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. There has been some uncertainty over the delayed Wii U version being made by Ubisoft Romania, but this trailer does sport the little Wii U logo at the end. We'll let you know as soon as we find out a concrete Wii U release date.
