The companion app allows players to connect and play with any Watch Dogs player logged into their PC or console, and allows them to have a little fun with the city of Chicago. The app can be used to control the city itself, all ctOS devices in the city, and Chicago’s finest. Players will be assisted, as they attempt to challenge and shut down other players, by a police helicopter carrying a sharpshooter.
Challenging players allows app users to gain XP and skill points, use those skills points to upgrade their police arsenal and ctOS powers, and unlock abilities for their units by completing achievements.
The app is available for iOS, on both iPhone and iPad, as well as Android. It is free to download, though you do need an Xbox Live account, a PSN account or a UPlay account to use it to challenge others.
