Thanks to German website Die Welt, we have new information regarding Watch Dogs’ beginning and Aiden’s background.
Apparently, the beginning of Watch Dogs isn’t for the faint of heart, the opening scene begins with “bloody torture” and has a “brutal tone.” The article describes Aiden and his fellow hackers had closed in on a hostile organization which now wants to teach him a lesson. An assassin named Maurice is hired by this group and kills Aiden’s niece Lena, nephew Jackson, and sister Nicole.
Aiden is looking for payback and pursues Maurice to a stadium and once the assassin has been handled, he uses his hacking abilities to overload cameras in the vicinity and escape. Aiden is able to enter parkour mode through a button press, although Die Welt describes the controls as somewhat “spongy.” Aiden has the ability to scan environments prior to entering them much like the Assassin’s Creed Eagle Vision ability.
Die Welt delves further into what to expect from Watch Dogs in their article, so make sure to check it out. The game drops on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on May 27th.
