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.

- ―Jordi Chin
Jordi Chin is a major character of Watch Dogs. He is a highly skilled Fixer who was hired by Aiden Pearce to track down the killers of his niece, following her death in October 2012. Jordi is able to use any kind of weapons, including knives, sniper rifles, explosives and handguns. Aiden is able to call him for various services, including helping him breaching in a correctional center, providing sniper support or explosives.
Aside from his various skills, Jordi is known to be charismatic and intelligent. He is also known for his sense of humor, even in dire situations. Jordi's playful way of explaining things is a perfect foil to Aiden's stoic, steely nature. As a Fixer, Jordi is shown as amoral; Aiden describes him as a person whose "principles change with the amount of money involved." He lectures Aiden at one point, saying that he "needs to separate the morals from the moola", after giving him a driver contract for the Chicago South Club; as such, he does not hesitate to betray any of his former friends, because he was paid to kill him.
