Watch Dog's cyberpunk fiction of a near future Chicago isn't all that fictional, Ubisoft shows in a captivating promotional site for the game. Don't worry, it's not an assortment of moody trailers or obtuse ARG puzzles--in fact WeareData is our reality, right now.
The site collates data from a variety of publicly available sources, from public bike stations to train schedules to geotagged Instagram posts. Displayed atop a 3D wireframe of London, Paris, or Berlin, the data provides a living representation of the cities.
Is the information shocking, a chilling picture of surveillance states gone wrong? Eh, it's more like Google Maps with a couple extra layers and a moody soundtrack. Still, consider our interest thematically piqued for playing around with Chicago's city operating system.
Watch Dogs is set to release on November 19 for PC, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360, and at launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
