Today, Ubisoft announced that its highly anticipated game, Watch Dogs, will be available in North America on November 19 for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the WiiU system from Nintendo and Windows PC, as well as at the launch of the PlayStation 4 from Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. The game is also planned for other next generation consoles.

Fans can check out the latest action in Watch Dogs by watching the gameplay trailer, released today. In the Watch Dogs gameplay trailer, Aiden Pearce takes his fight to a never- before-seen district in Chicago and encounters new characters while trying to put his past to rest.

Players who pre-order Watch Dogs at GameStop stores across North America (or EB Games in Canada) will receive an exclusive poster designed by famed comic-book artist, Alex Ross. The poster’s design is the inspiration behind the game’s box art and captures the essence of Aiden Pearce, a modern-day vigilante who must rely as much on brains as brawn to take down threats in our increasingly connected world.

Players will assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) and control almost every element of the city. Aiden will be able to tap into the city’s omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control systems such as traffic lights or public transportation to stop a chase, and more. The city of Chicago is now the ultimate weapon.
