Hi-tech thriller "will blend multiplayer, online and single-player in a way that hasn't been done before".
Ubisoft has teased new details about its recently revealed hi-tech espionage stunner Watch Dogs, saying that the game "will blend in multiplayer, online and single-player in a way that hasn't been done before."
"Online is the DNA of Watch Dogs," said the game's Producer Dominic Guay in an interview with VG247.
"It's super important to us. Our motto is everything is connected, and connection is power. So we couldn’t announce our game and not at least tease online, but it was a tease, I'll be honest."
Watch Dogs' E3 demo closed with Ubisoft revealing a second character, teasing the prospect of online multiplayer without giving away any further details.
“So, basically, Jonathan [Watch Dog's director] was playing Aiden Pearce at the conference," continued Guay, "and I was playing another character who hacked into him and had his own objectives, and we crossed paths – basically two players crossing paths with their own objectives.
"So, hopefully that gives you an idea of where we're going with this. We definitely want to blend in multiplayer, online and single-player in a way that hasn’t been done before."
Watch Dogs was announced during Ubisoft's E3 press conference earlier this week.
