Ubisoft isn’t just relying on sequels to Rayman, Splinter Cell, and Assassin’s Creed to get it through this holiday season. The publisher is also releasing Watch Dogs, a new open-world property for current- and next-gen systems.

Watch Dogs hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on Nov. 19. It launches for PlayStation 4 on Nov. 15 and Xbox One on Nov. 22. To promote the game, Ubisoft released an extensive new video that demonstrates some of the open-world game’s emergent mechanics.

Watch Dogs animation director Colin Graham walks players through the fictionalized version of Chicago as he controls hero Aiden Pierce. Graham has the character infiltrate a public facility, intervene in a domestic-violence dispute, and steal an unsuspecting lady’s bank information. None of this is part of a mission and is all just a part of the world.
