Microbloggers are raving about Ubisoft's upcoming game Watch Dogs, which was revealed at E3 on Monday, June 4, shortly after which the trailer hit the web.
Ubisoft unveiled Watch Dogs during a press conference at video game industry event E3. Developed by the Ubisoft Montreal Studio by a team comprising former Rainbow Six and Assassin's Creed developers, Watch Dogs combines stealth and hacking and asks the question: what if all electronic systems in our society were run by one computer, and someone was able to hack into it?
Already being hailed by some as the surprise hit of E3, Watch Dogs also received an overwhelming positive reaction on Twitter.
Freelance games journalist Peter Martensson (@petterm) tweeted, "And Watch Dogs. Oh... My... God. Late to the party, I know. But wow, that could be amazing. If they manage to do a cyberpunkish GTA. »
James Batchelor (@James_Batchelor), co-founder of GameBurst, tweeted, "Going to join in on the love for Watch Dogs. Want. Want now."
Adam Liborio (@AdamLiborio), co-founder and programmer at mobile game developer RatDog Games, tweeted, "I know everyone's said it already but Watch Dogs and The Last of Us look amazing."
Honest Xbox Reviews (@HXboxreviews), an Xbox 360 review site, joined in with the praise, tweeting, "Morning all, seems I missed my #E3 wow moment while gaming last night. Watch Dogs from @Ubisoft looks to be AMAZING!"
Watch Dogs is expected to be released in 2014, though no exact date is yet available.
