Aiden may be a super hacker, but even he can't wage a war against the establishment by himself. Unless his cell phone is actually a magical talking side-kick, he's going to need friends. Aiden and his phone would be a pretty cool Banjo Kazooie platformer though. No, Aiden has a laundry list of friend and enemies that he'll be digitally dancing will all game long.
Clara Lille is a tattoo artist and sexy. Hopefully she's the badass that her hairstyle implies she is, but judging by the amount of cleavage Ubisoft gave her she's more likely a love interest or a damsel of some kind. "T-Bone" Grady is a welder and also stars in the previously announced single-player DLC for Watch Dogs. Being a welder allows him to wear goggles all the time, which is important for hacker street cred. Apparently he's 52 years old, but he looks like he's like a college drop-out that sells weed out the back of his van. Jordi Chin is a mystery. You've always got to have a mystery in you gang. They take care of plot holes and fix deus ex machinas, preferably with big guns while cracking jokes.
On the other side of the war, also known as cool hackers that have more violent tendencies. Anthony "Iraq" Wade is an ex-soldier that looks like a he fought his wars on internet (haven't we all). He can kill multiple men with a suitcase. You can't hack a suitcase, Aiden. Dermot "Lucky" Quinn is apparently a philanthropist, which I think means he's like the Hugh Hefner of Watch Dogs' underground. All of the other hackers in the game are just his bunnies. Only, there's a lot more drugs and murder. Maybe just murder.
In recent years supporting casts have become a bigger and bigger deal. With so many big budget games relying heavily on cinematic sequences and audio recordings during gameplay, those voices matter. Watch Dogs definitely seems to have figured out. I've already seen more meaningful characters in this one trailer than throughout the entirety of Infamous: Second Son.
Watch Dogs is planned for release on May 27 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Hack the planet.
