Amazingly, one of the publishers actually had a game to reveal at their E3 press conference this morning that hadn't already leaked all over the place in the days and weeks leading up to the event. At their show this morning, Ubisoft lifted the veil off a new action-adventure title called Watch Dogs, in development at their Montreal studio.
In Watch Dogs, players enter the dangerous world of Aiden Pearce, a new class of antihero whose ability to hack into any connected system could be his most powerful weapon. Whether it’s triggering a 30-car pileup by manipulating traffic-lights to trap an enemy during a downtown shootout or tapping into the city’s omnipresent security cameras to access anyone’s personal information, Pearce is capable of coercing and controlling almost every element of the world around him.

“Watch Dogs goes beyond the limits of today’s open-world games by giving players the ability to control an entire city,” said Jonathan Morin, creative director, Ubisoft. “In Watch Dogs, anything connected to the city’s Central Operating System becomes a weapon. By pushing the boundaries, we can provide players with action and access to information on a scale that’s never been seen in a video game before.”
We reckon the game looks to have a very classic Syndicate or Deus Ex vibe with the added freedom of an open-world game, but you can make your own mind up by watch the announcement trailer as well as the gameplay demo yourself, embedded below.

No platforms or release date target have been confirmed yet.

I assumed this was linear. Looks like I assumed wrong.

I got a "Person of Interest" vibe too, from some of the visuals.
