Watch Dogs 101 trailer lectures about mechanics, characters, virtual Chicago

Posted on May 13, 2014 AT 10:40am

The latest Watch Dogs trailer provides a 101-level crash course on the characters, mechanics, and other ins and outs of Ubisoft’s upcoming open world, hack-heavy new franchise.

Clocking in at almost nine and a half minutes, the 101 trailer touches (seen above) upon characters already introduced, such as genius anarchist T-Bone and hacker extraordinaire Clara, and also fleshes out other characters, like Anthony “Iraq” Wade, with more details.

The trailer also explores the game’s hacking mechanics, multiplayer, the requisite companion app and in-game driving.

Watch Dogs launches across Windows PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 on May 27 worldwide. Its Wii U version, which Ubisoft said earlier this month they are “fully focused” on finishing, is expected to release later this year.
