Watch Dogs: Aiden’s Friends Will Affect His Actions
The relationships you maintain will influence your overall success.
Watch_Dogs Lead Story Designer Kevin Shortt revealed new details about other characters in the upcoming open world adventure game. “Jordi, T-Bone and Clara are just a high-level shot of some of the people you’ll end. There are many more.”
These characters are all certified lunatics, by the way. T-Bone is a tech-savvy man who holds the key to helping Aiden out, but is in with the wrong crowd, forcing the latter to help him out whenever possible. Jordi is a fixer – some one Aiden calls when he wants problems to go away. Clara (seen above) is the most mysterious, and can apparently expose any kind of secret. Calling her a friend is one thing, since it’s hinted that she and Aiden aren’t exactly very close.
Then there’s the “old friend” who re-enters Aiden’s life, making things all the more complicated.
Of course, as Shortt reveals, each of these characters has an impact on Aiden’s development. “The people Aiden crosses paths with have an opinion on what he’s doing. Their actions affect how he thinks.” And it’s not just people: Aiden also crosses paths with the shadowy DedSec – a hacker collective out to enlighten the citizens of Chicago to the dangers of the CtOS. (We’ll have more on DedSec soon.)”
It’s been previously stated that Aiden’s family has been hurt, and now he’s obsessed with finding out who did it and why. “Pearce is determined to find out who’s responsible by any means necessary. He doesn’t know who did it; he only knows his family was seriously hurt. He becomes obsessive about it. His family says, Let it go. We’re moving on. But Aiden can’t.”
Will the master hacker crash and burn, or ascend into awareness? Find out when Watch_Dogs releases on Xbox 360, Wii U, PS3 and PC on November 19th in North America with PS4 and Xbox releases due shortly after.
