WatchDogs Announced

The WatchDogs Website has a trailer showing off this just-revealed open world game in development at Ubisoft Montreal. This originally seemed to be a console title, but there are plans for a PC edition as well, and the trailer offers hope for an impressive new IP. No release date is offered at this point.

More than just 1 other player, when they zoom out at the end of the presentation there's player markers in a few spots on the world. This game has potential to be pretty innovative if the MP plays out like it appears to.
I'd be surprised if the game had the sort of multiplayer features you're talking about. It's just as likely that the other characters are AI controlled and do their own thing and that you switch between them.

As mentioned, I'd like to see events happening in the world regardless of whether you're there. Why not let the player miss part of the phone call? If the phone call is that important they could always put a bit of fluff at the beginning to pad it out. Pressing hack and triggering a scripted sequence just isn't as compelling.

I agree it's unlikely. But it would be pretty darned cool if that were the case. I don't so much mind some things being a bit scripted in order to move the plot along. At the end of the day it's still a game. IMO no game will ever have that full "suspension of belief" because other wise how do you have a narrative if nothing is ever scripted at all?
