OP

Videogamer.com got a close look at the tablet features in Ubisoft's game, Watch Dogs



This time, however, the demo concluded with a demonstration of a real-time iPad app that supports a kind of meta-game - much in the manner of Microsoft's Xbox SmartGlass.

Here players were presented with a wireframe map of futuristic Chicago, drawn in a similar style to the one that used in the press conference demo. The map can be scrolled and zoomed, with pop-up boxes and icons providing real-time information about the game in progress.

"As we said, everything is connected - and we've extended that to mobile devices," said the Ubisoft demonstrator. "We have Chicago in the palm of your hand. Everything that you've seen in the game will be accessible, so different shops - pharmacies, gun shops - will also be available here. You can see everything.

"Remember the theatre that we saw? You can go and check the details, what the layout is, so that you can plan your mission. You can also get information about the organisers - facts about DeMarco."

But it's not just NPCs who fall under the app's scrutiny. Other human players will also find that their details have been uploaded to the CTOS - the American information network in Watch Dogs' cyberpunk future.

"You can monitor bad guys, and you can also monitor your friends. That way you can see your friends in real time - what they are doing, and how they did it. You can access their mission log and prepare yourself in the same way."

During the course of the main demo, Pierce took the time to 'profile' a female NPC - scanning her and then adding her details to the CTOS. This meant that new data was added to the tablet app - information that wouldn't have been there otherwise.

Why the fuck isn't this announced for Wii U yet?

Fun multiplayer mode: Other players use their hacking skills to "hack" your tablet/smartphone and mess with your interface. Think about it, Ubisoft.

Smartglass doesn't seem so... smart... to me.
Couldn't I just get all that info by browsing the internet on my phone?
Probably would be quicker than making sure I have enough charge, my wifi is turned on, launching a stupid app, connecting to the 360, etc etc etc.

Am I wrong?

Yeah I think that's my point.
It doesnt make anything better... or worse. Its just the damn same thing we had before but with a new name and an icon on your phone/360 to say connected.

Was I the only one who was amazed at this game? This has to be one of the best things to come out of E3 this year.

It will definitely come out on the Wii U. 90% sure of it.

I don't see it coming out at the same time as the other versions, which is a shame.
Come on now. Like literally two post up. Smh
