Fictionalized, Hyperconnected Chicago Is the Virtual Location of Action-Adventure Video Game "Watch Dogs"

Watch Dogs (stylized as WATCH_DOGS) is an upcoming open world action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft that is set within a fictionalized, hyper-connected version of Chicago, Illinois, which is managed through a centralised system called ctOS (the city's central operating system).

A game player is able to hack into the lives of fictional characters that live and work in Chicago. Players able to eavesdrop into phone calls, hack into anyone's life, identify criminals, disrupt communications, and disrupt infrastructure.

While the player is watching, any other character in the game could be watching and acting on the player.
