Watch Dogs 2: World Premiere Announcement


Watch Dogs 2 has been officially announced, showcasing a game that looks a lot more like GTA V with Watch Dogs style hacking rather than new Watch Dogs game. 

The game will be set in San Fransisco, leaving Chicago and Aiden Pearce behind to place the player into the shoes of Marcus Holloway, a hacker/maker that has a large collection of interesting tech and home built devices at his disposal. 

In Watch Dogs 2 the environment will be easier to traverse through with a new Parkour system and every vehicle or person in the environment will be hackable, giving the player a lot more options when playing the game.   

Below you can view the 18-minute long announcement presentation for Watch Dogs 2, showcasing some impressive visuals and a lot of gameplay improvements over the original.  



Right now the games developers say that the game is playable from start to finish, whether you want to play with an all-guns-blazing approach, an all stealth/ hacking approach and even allow players to complete the game without killing a single person.

The team behind the game has also stated that they have worked hard to improve the driving within the game, whether you are driving a car, piloting a drone or riding a jet ski. Hopefully, this is true as I found driving in Watch Dogs to be a terrible experience when compared to similar 3rd person open world games like GTA V.



While the original Watch Dogs was a huge disappointment I really hope that Watch Dog 2 can not just deliver on the promises that the developers have made today but exceed expectations and release a game that can actually satisfy gamers for a long period of time. 

Watch Dogs 2 will release simultaneously on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 15th 2016.

This reminds me of the TV series Mr. Robot, which if you haven't seen would fully recommend.Quote

I hate everything about this series. It looks like it was envisioned by old people without any grasp of technology and without any in' clue what young people are like. It's so pathetically edgy in the worst teenage angst way imaginable. It just comes off as that annoying little kid that we all know that tries too hard to be "gangsta".

And that's before you get into how shallow and generally abysmal Ubisoft game design is. They try to appeal to everyone and every possible playstyle by making everything as dumb and barely functional as possible.Quote

Bet you a tenner there will be a visual downgrade of the retail version compared to the E3 footage.Quote
