While we have been aware of, and have been receiving news in regards to Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world third-person shooter, Watch_Dogs, there is little we know regarding the game’s supporting characters. We do, however, know a great deal about the game’s protagonist, Aiden Pearce. In a recent post on their UbiBlog, Ubisoft has laid out details for the game’s supporting characters, giving gamers an impression of what to expect when they pick up the game.
Not much is known about T-Bone Grady’s actual role in the game outside of his pledge to Pearce to help him find out who murdered his family; though his emotional state has been described as, “scattered and he’s affected by the things that happened in the past. He and Pearce share that. They deal with it in different ways, but they share that past and it bonds them in a way.” Jordi Chin (the character shown in the E3 2012 teaser) and Pearce also have a complex relationship, and, “Pearce uses him a lot, to the point where they kind of become friends, but they both know they could kill each other if they wanted to. They like each other but it’s strictly business. If Pearce doesn’t pay Jordi the right amount, Jordi will not help him out.” It seems Chin and Pearce simply both respect each other’s endgames. Clara Lille is also described as being as much of an ally to Pearce as a potential enemy. Other supporting characters were also teased.
Watch_Dogs is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal alongside Ubisoft Reflections and will be published by Ubisoft for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U this holiday season.
