Watch Dogs (stylized as WATCH_DOGS) is an open world game, taking place in a near-future vision of Chicago, developed by Ubisoft. In it, the players, controlling a character named Aiden Pearce, "have the power to control an entire city's infrastructure via powerful computers that run everything from data records to power lines." The player can gain information about anyone, via Pearce's profiler. The player can meddle with any electrical output that runs on the grid, in ways such as jamming all mobile phone reception in his immediate area, and even shorting out traffic lights to cause a major car accident. The game also has seamless co-op.
It was scheduled to be released on November 19, 2013, but was pushed back until the second quarter of 2014 (May 27th for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles. The Wii U version of the game has been released on November 2014.
Digital Trips are a feature of Watch Dogs.
The Digital Trip is an app that uses binaural frequencies from the smartphone to put Aiden in a temporary unconscious dream state where he can play virtual games in his head. Completing a full digital trip will unlock a special clothing item for Pearce that cannot be purchased. The clothing items the player unlocks by completing the Digital Trips are the ones they wear while playing them. Clothing unlocked from Trips is permanently added to Aiden's wardrobe, so they will always be available even if one starts a new game. The logo for Digital Trips resembles Defalt's symbol, suggesting that he programmed them.
