Watch Dogs’ connectivity is a 'core pillar,' Ubisoft says

Ubisoft's upcoming technology heavy open-world game Watch Dogs will be connected "in many ways," senior producer Dominic Guay said during a video interview.

According to Guay, speaking in the video above, one of the game's "core pillars is connectivity," and players will be able to use their mobile devices in some capacity.

"We wanted the player to be able to connect o Watch Dogs even through his mobile," Guay said, "Be able to play directly with people who are on their console, who are on their PlayStation 4, even if he's on the bus. Basically to be attached to our game world even when he steps out of the living room."

Guay continued to talk about the game's multiplayer aspect, which will attempt to "breach the wall" between single-player and multiplayer.

"We want the player to be surprised when he meets other players," Guay said. "We want him to be able to go from single-player to multiplayer without having to go through a lobby, to menus, to various game settings."

Watch Dogs will launch Nov. 19 in North America and Nov. 22 in UK. The game will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Windows PC and is a PlayStation 4 launch title.
