The Intro: If you actually lived in the world of Watch Dogs, you’d run into a lot of criminals, all the time. You would turning a corner on the street, just minding your own business, and out of nowhere you’d run into a petty thief or a chronic masturbator. The Chicago in Watch Dogs is not a pleasant place. It’s a place that has been overtaken by the excesses of technology and is infested with the lowest element of humans.

And for hadouken-blasting PS4 owners everywhere, it has finally arrived.
The Intro: The apocalypse is most definitely not a picnic. Most of the people you know and loved have been wiped off the face of the earth after a biological weapon attack. The city is desolate. As you walk around, you hear echoes and noises and sounds of distant gunfire.
