New Watch_Dogs Trailer Shows What Aiden Pierce Can Do, Hints to Supporting Character Codenamed PixxelFD

on March 26, 2013 2:26 PM

Ubisoft released today a new trailer of Watch_Dogs disguised as a ctOS security report showing off some of the hacking resources that protagonist Aiden Pierce will be able to tap into in order to pursue his obscure goals against the system.

What’s quite interesting is that the trailer introduces a “third party” monitoring and possibly seeking to support Pierce. Considering how the narrating voice stresses the “or She” part towards the end of the trailer, it’s very possible that this supporting character will indeed be female, and as you can see in the screencap below “she” seems to be codenamed “PixxelFD”.



A quick search revealed that the nickname “PixxelFD” is used by Ubisoft Digital Marketing Lead and Frag Doll Edelita Valdez (Pixxel is in fact her Frag Doll Nickname). Two theories come to mind: either the character introduced by the trailer is somehow inspired by the charming miss Valdez, or we’re seeing the first glimpse of a possible cooperative multiplayer feature that was “manned” by Valdez when the footage was recorded.

At the moment your guess is as good as mine, but you can check the video out and make up your own conspiracy theories. Watch_Dogs seems all about them anyway.
