It's set within a fictional version of Chicago in 2013. The single-player story follows the story of hacker and vigilante Aiden Pearce and his quest for revenge after the killing of his niece. Using stealth and combat you hack electronic devices to complete missions using equipment and devices to reach different areas without being seen. System hacking requires you to solve logic puzzles under a time restraint.
These hacks and other exploits grant you real-time control of the city’s infrastructure, enabling you to trap enemies by manipulating the traffic lights, stopping trains to board and evade authorities or chase down robbers who have mugged someone. In the online multiplayer mode you team up with up to eight players to engage in cooperative and competitive gameplay.
