Watch Dogs (written as Watch_Dogs) is an action-adventure video game that was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game was released on 27 May 2014.[1] The game is available on Microsoft Windows, the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Wii U.

It was revealed during Ubisoft's press conference at E3 2012.[2] They announced that PC is the lead platform for the game.[3]

It was chosen as Best PC Game, Biggest Surprise and Best New Franchise of E3 2012 by IGN.[4] It also won People's Choice Most Exciting Game of E3 2013 by GameSpot.[5] Note; despite the praise from gaming magazines the game was very lackluster.

The game tells the story of Aiden Pearce, a hacker who searches the city of Chicago for information in order to find out who hired the men who killed his six-year-old niece, Lena, when they tried and failed to kill Aiden.
