In a near future, London is on the brink of destruction: the population is oppressed by a police state exercising total surveillance, private militias take control of the streets and the weakest fall prey to organized crime. London's fate depends only on you and your ability to fight back. Welcome to the Resistance.

What is Watch Dogs?

DedSec, a hacker group, defies the abuse of technology and seeks to show the weaknesses of the system.

The goal is to overcome oppression at all costs by forming a team with varied skills and using the right tactics.
