Yves Guillemot took the stage at Ubis’s E3 press event to announce the new IP Watch Dogs, which the third-person shooter in the works at Ubisoft Montreal for the last two years.

It takes place in the summer of 2003, where during a blackout in New York a disgusted employee unleashed a virus on the city.

Because of this, the city is now controlled by a computer controlled by a major corporation. The computer knows all your actions, thoughts, etc and links everything you do to the system. All data is interconnected.

Players can control an entire surveillance system in the game, and use the computer system as a weapon once hacked.

The E3 trailer and the stage demo are posted below. There are three screens too.
