Shack Reels: How Watch Dogs devs brought Chicago to life

The Memorial Day weekend kicked off with Shacknews taking a look at Watch Dogs' interpretation of Chicago versus the real-life version of the Windy City. So just how did the development team go about re-creating one of the biggest cities in the United States? Shacknews recently spent a day with the game's developers to find out.

The video below shows Watch Dogs lead game designer Danny Belanger and lead writer Kevin Shortt explaining what the city of Chicago means to their game, as they both wander around some of the city's main sights.

Watch Dogs arrives tomorrow on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
