Watch Dogs 2 will release on the 15th of November, Ubisoft has announced
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Watch Dogs 2 will take players to San Francisco. The city has recently adopted ctOS 2.0, an advanced operating system networking the city infrastructure, and in the wrong hands, ctOS 2.0 can be used to invasively control and manipulate everyday citizens.
The game will feature a new protagonist named Marcus Holloway, a hacker who has fallen victim to the ctOS 2.0's predictive algorithms and is accused of a crime he did not commit. This puts Marcus on a quest to take the ctOS 2.0 technology offline for good.
Marcus' hacking abilities allow players to hack not only the city's infrastructure but also every person and any connected device they possess to trigger unpredictable chains of events. He can hack and take control of drones, cars, cranes, security robots, and much more. This allows players to complete missions by using stealth hacking and avoid killing a single enemy or go guns blazing for a more ferocious approach.
In this vast open world, players can hack their way through traffic while engaging in dangerous car chases through the winding streets of San Francisco, traverse the rooftops of the vibrant neighborhoods of Oakland, and infiltrate the offices of cutting-edge companies in Silicon Valley.
"Our creative team is working hard to deliver an outstanding Watch Dogs experience," said Dominic Guay, senior producer, Ubisoft Montreal. "In Watch Dogs 2, we're excited to give players a captivating storyline with engaging characters that offers deeper, more meaningful hacking options, a greater variety of gadgets and weapons, and a brand new seamless multiplayer experience that will appeal to fans of the original Watch Dogs as well as players new to the brand."
Ubisoft will reveal more details about the game in its press conference at E3 2016.
