The hackers are back in “Watch Dogs 2.” A new trailer of the upcoming game has been released online, teasing the new storyline and some of the gameplay elements. Ubisoft, the company behind the game, believes that it can fill the gap for “Assassin’s Creed” this year.
The new trailer is all about the storyline and the usual high speed chases on the streets. Players take control of a character called Marcus Holloway, who is fed up with the system that collects information about the citizens in the fictitious version of the city of San Francisco. The information collected is being used to violate the public trust, manipulate the stock market and to commit other kinds of fraud.
Marcus is on a journey to take down the advanced surveillance system of the city. To do that he has to rally support, which will separate him from the trolls, and he needs lots of bots.
“Watch Dogs 2” allows the players multiple ways in which the mission can be completed. The players can use different vehicles in the game such as cars, bikes, boats and trucks. When the action gets intense, weapons can be fired while driving a vehicle.
Marcus works with the hacking group DedSec in the game. Each successful mission will lead to increased followers for the group.
The sequel is said to have incorporated all the feedback from the first game. Ubisoft Sales Director Darren Bowen is so confident about the game that he believes the game will fill the gap of “Assassin’s Creed,” a highly successful franchise by the company that will not see a new title release this holiday season, The Tech 52 reports.
“Watch Dog 2” will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 15. The Microsoft Windows version will be released on Nov. 29.
