Watch Dogs (stylized as WATCH_DOGS) is an action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It was released worldwide on 27 May 2014 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, while a Wii U version was released in November 2014. Set within a fictionalized version of Chicago, Illinois, the single-player story follows a hacker and his efforts to seek revenge after the killing of his niece. The open world design lets players freely roam the urban city, suburbs, open countryside, and run-down neighborhoods of Chicago.

The game is played from a third-person perspective and its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle. Players control Aiden Pearce, a grey hat hacker who can hack into the “ctOS”, a centralized operating system which manages the hyper-connected city of Chicago, and formed after the Northeast blackout of 2003 was caused by a hacker. An online multiplayer mode is also provided in the game, allowing up to eight players to engage in both cooperative and competitive gameplay in a recreation of the single-player setting.

Development on the game began in 2009. As part of their research for the open world, the developers conducted field research around Chicago throughout development and captured footage for the design team. Duties were shared between many of Ubisoft’s studios worldwide.

Following its announcement in June 2012, Watch Dogs was widely anticipated. At release, it received a polarized reception; praise was particularly directed at the game’s hacking elements and mission variety. The game received criticism concerning the discrepancy in graphics quality between marketing and the real game and also concerning the overall gameplay, plot, protagonist, and some technical issues. Watch Dogs was a commercial success, breaking the record for the biggest first day sales of a Ubisoft game, and becoming the biggest launch of a new intellectual property ever in the United Kingdom at the time. As of 1 January 2015, the game has shipped over 10 million copies. It was followed by a sequel, Watch Dogs 2, in November 2016.

In the backstory of Watch Dogs, a computer hacker is discovered to have been behind the Northeast blackout of 2003, which led to eleven deaths. This event prompted the Blume Corporation to develop ctOS (Central Operating System) a supercomputer that connects everyone and everything[11] — including personal information, security cameras, and traffic lights, after being implemented in Chicago, Illinois (the setting of the game), it becomes the most technologically advanced city in the world.

In Watch Dogs, players take control of Aiden Pearce (Noam Jenkins), a grey hat hacker and vigilante. After a hacking job gone wrong, a hit is sent out on Aiden. While intending to kill him, hitmen accidentally kill his young niece Lena Pearce. Now Aiden seeks to bring out his own kind of justice to the people responsible and avenge his niece, while protecting the remaining family around him, his younger sister Nicole Pearce (Anne Hopkins) and nephew Jackson Pearce (Nicholas Bode). Aiden teams up with a host of allies over the course of the game: Jordi Chin (Aaron Douglas), a “fixer” with a motormouth and Aiden’s hired partner; Clara Lille (Isabelle Blais), a tattoo artist and member of the “DedSec” hacker group (under the alias ‘BadBoy17’); Raymond “T-Bone” Kenney (John Tench), a former ctOS engineer, and the hacker responsible for the northeast blackout in 2003; Tyrone “Bedbug” Hayes, a 19-year old teenager who lives with his grandmother and has ties with the notorious gang, The Black Viceroys; and Tobias Frewer, another former ctOS engineer now down on his luck and also crafts tools and weapons for Aiden. Aiden also encounters many foes, including Delford “Iraq” Wade (Jerod Hayes),[12] a gang leader with a military background and cousin of Bedbug; and Dermot “Lucky” Quinn (Myron Natwick), the conniving elderly and wealthy owner of the Merlaut Hotel and crime boss of Chicago’s crime underworld. Other characters include Damien Brenks (Daniel Kash), Aiden’s evil former mentor and partner-in-crime and the main antagonist; and Maurice Vega (Christopher Jacot), the conniving trigger man who caused the accident that claimed Lena’s life.
