Watch Dogs large open world map will be “open right at the start”.
Creative director Jonathan Morin speaking to The Average Gamer confirmed the news, saying, "We are not restricting the player,” he said.
“Within the free-roaming the player will have to progressively invade certain strategic points from the city OS system that’s going to make it possible for him [Aiden] to get connected in a district,” Morin said.
“It’s going to grow and we call this ‘monitoring grid’. It’s like its own network to listen to what’s going on in the city. That unlocks tons of different side activities and events that the system can detect so we can actually go and intervene into them.”
Watch Dogs releases on PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in November.
