A new video from Ubisoft introduces the in-game Watch Dogs character based on actress, gamer and comedian Aisha Tyler.
Tyler, who has appeared on CSI and Friends and who is the current host for the reboot of comedy improv show Whose Line is it Anyway?, announced that she would be appearing in Watch Dogs at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month. In the video, her character is trailed by protagonist Aiden Pearce while on the phone, and she is noted as being at possible risk of an attack. Naturally, this risk materializes.
At Comic-Con, Tyler spoke with Polygon about her role in the game and her thoughts on privacy in an increasingly-connected world. "There's a powerlessness that a lot of people feel, because of their relationship with technology," she said. "They don't feel like they have control over it, they don't feel like their information is protected.
Watch Dogs hits PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Windows PC in late November, with an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release planned as well.
