Ubisoft Montreal today officially unveiled the second installment of Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2.Watch Dogs 2 will release worldwide on November 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.Apart from announcing the launch date, the company also revealed a new trailer of the game.Watch Dogs 2 heads to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is the latest city to adopt ctOS 2.0.
Here are a few things we want you to know about the game before it comes out via PlayStationBlog:
After Aiden Pearce was able to momentarily shut down the entire ctOS system, Blume quadrupled their work on it and released ctOS 2.0 from the heart of Silicon Valley. With billions of connected devices, it has truly become the “Internet of Things.” But now, it’s not just the government and criminal forces monitoring you. Corporations are building full digital profiles of citizens that can be tracked, traded, sold, and stolen without you having any idea. With so much control over the population, hackers, whistleblowers and activists are raising the flag and drawing the battle lines. It’s time to take the power back.
You’ll play as Marcus Holloway, a brilliant young hacker who’s been wrongly accused by ctOS 2.0 of a crime he didn’t commit. He’s a charming, funny guy but also a passionate idealist who wants to give back control to the people. He’ll join the San Francisco cell of DedSec, and only with the combined power of his new hacker family and community will he be able to take on a corrupt establishment and achieve his goals.
We wanted every interaction or event in the game to feel meaningful, and everything you do in Watch Dogs 2 will help you reach your final goal. Speaking of which, there are no more towers to unlock. The entire San Francisco Bay Area will be open from the start for you to explore and discover the stories and secrets that lie within. From the lush lawns of Silicon Valley, to the cultured streets of San Francisco and the gorgeous views of Marin County, each neighborhood has its own vibe and feel. We’ve packed the game with a lot of content and there will always be something for you to do or see in this massive world.
Every character, vehicle, electronics and other objects you’ll come across can be hacked. Everything is a target that can be hacked in multiple ways. Hacking traffic signals not enough? Take control of a vehicle’s steering wheel or overload the engine. We want to empower you with even greater control and possibilities with hacking, and we’re really excited to see how players creatively use these tools. You’ll even have an RC car and drone at your disposal to open up the world and create new hacking opportunities.
