The video sees our protagonist, Aiden Pearce, chasing down a smuggler who’s trying to outrun the cops. There’s plenty of parkour, as the name of the video implies, but Pearce also uses the city and his trusty smartphone to his advantage.
Graham previously teamed up with Ubisoft to promote Assassin’s Creed with another parkour video, but the addition of a small storyline makes this just that little bit more engaging. Well, that and the inclusion of technological tricks and hacks as Pearce’s surroundings become a weapon and an assistance. And, of course, he calls upon some of the hacks that we’ve seen in trailers to date.
Watch Dogs will be released on May 27th on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
