    'Welcome to Chicago' Trailer and quick Q&A





    WATCH_DOGS Q&A

    Are there day/night cycles in the game?

    Yes, there is a real time day and night cycle. Time of day is not scripted.


    What weather systems can the player expect to experience?

    We have a lot of different weather possibilities from sunny and calm, to stormy and rainy. Wind, rain, fog and clouds all have several degrees of intensity and are all systemic.


    How do you manage to ensure every NPC is unique?

    Every NPC has unique qualities that distinguish him or her from others in the game. There are over 3000 character kits and an almost infinite amount of unique profiler possibilities.


    How many concurrent NPCs can there be?

    The number of NPCs players can encounter at one time depends on a variety of factors like time of day and location. If it’s mid-day, then players will see more NPCs going about their busy lives. At night, we have fewer NPCs reflecting the patterns we see in the real world. The downtown core of Chicago is also a busier area with lots more citizens than a more industrial region, for example. Our main goal was to ensure that the world feels as alive as you’d expect in a major city like Chicago. And of course, the next gen consoles allow us to place more NPCs in the world than we’ve ever been able to do in current gen consoles.
    So it’s hard to give specific numbers, but rest assured, the city will feel alive like players have never seen before with many unique NPCs populating the city.


    Can you hack absolutely every NPC in the game?

    Yes, every NPC can be hacked. Based on their profile, a variety of hacks are possible. You can also hack elements in the world to influence the behaviour of NPC’s around.


    What different environments can the player expect?

    Chicago is a rich and diverse city and we want the player to explore every inch of it There are 6 different districts in WD, all with really different looks, types of NPC’s and vibe.


    How many different vehicles can the player drive?

    Over 75 different vehicles from bikes to compact, heavy, muscle, off road, SUV, luxury cars, or speed cars, all of them with their own realistic physics.


    How many difference hacks are available in the game?


    Over 100 hacks.

    Hello, Mr. Shade,

    I have plenty of questions to ask.

    1) How does the health system work?

    2) Will the phone battery life stay infinite or limited?

    3) Is there a place for Aiden to take a rest/sleep?

    Thanks.

    1, Can we see expansion of the city and missions to a good price to quality dlcs in the future such has been seen within the assassins creed franchise specifically the current AC black flag which saw a brilliant peice of work with the branch off from a companions point of view in the future.

    2, How will mulitplayer impact upon the city enviroment, will we have a point where co-op is viable or how and if the large multiplayer we have heard rumors off will be played out within the city, will we have small areas that are sectioned off and blocked from leaving be the game style or will we have access to the whole city in the large multiplayer gameplay.

    3, Will the safehouse we will use be able to store a car and bike of our choice and possibly able to spray it, if not at launch could this be a possibility in the future.

    Thanks in advance and hope this game will be expanded within the title instead of expanded upon through future installments of seperate titles. Personally i see that making the bigger bucks and to what could be the greatest game of this generation of games.

    Looking Forward

    Since watching the first video and reading the particulars about this game, I'm really looking forward to play this thing. I've given up on the Far Cry series because of its move away from realistic immersion to go arcade, but Watch Dogs looks to be very immersive with an intelligent premise and exciting sandbox play. I normally don't play multiplayer, but I'll welcome the intrusion of the odd player into my game to hack, and it will gladly oblidge in their game.
