'Watch Dogs 2' Launch Confirmed: Top 5 Things You Need to Know About the Game
After months of speculations, countless rumors and information leaks, Ubisoft has finally confirmed the release date of its open-world hacking game "Watch Dogs 2".
Ubisoft has added has tons of new features to its latest "Watch Dogs" title. Here's what fans would need to know about the game, as stated by Rainbow Six Siege Community Developer Chase Straight on the Playstation Blog.
ctOS Is Back and is More in Control
Those who played the first "Watch Dogs" will remember that Aiden Pearce has temporarily shut the entire ctOS system down in Chicago. Now Blume seemed to have raised the bar, creating ctOS 2.0
in Silicon Valley, which explains the change in location for the story.
Blume has expanded its capabilities, and now it's not just the government and criminal forces which has control of the citizens' profiles, but some big corporations as well, giving them bigger control over the population.
Welcome To DedSec
The hacking collective DedSec was in the first "Watch Dogs", with DedSec member Clara Lille assisting Aiden with his missions. Aiden was not a member of DedSec, but the new protagonist, Marcus Holloway, is. DedSec has over a million members in San Francisco, so this time the players will not be alone, and will be aided by his new hacker family.
Everything Is Unlocked
"We wanted every interaction or event in the game to feel meaningful," Straight said on the blog. "And everything you do in Watch Dogs 2 will help you reach your final goal."
Unlike the previous "Watch Dogs", players do not need to unlock areas, which means that everything is made available from the onset of the game. The new game will be teeming with things to do, and players can choose to either play through the story, or just simply roam around and enjoy the vast city of San Francisco.
The Hacking Possibilities Are Endless
Hacking is an important element in "Watch Dogs". Fans will be happy to know that the hacking in the new game has been expanded, opening a lot more possibilities. Players can now hack into car systems, which is a real game-changer, according to Ubisoft.
Players can now even hack any citizens in the game, even going as far as hacking multiple devices at once, which the game developers dubbed as "mass hacking". "Why only hack one if you can hack them all?" Senior Producer Dominic Guay said on the World Premiere video.
Player Feedback Is Considered
Player feedback has been an important factor during the development of any game. Straight said on the blog that they took feedback from forums, comments and tweets, and made sure that the biggest feedbacks were addressed in "Watch Dogs 2".
"What's exciting is when you start really understanding what you tried to do with the first game," Creative Director Jonathan Morin said in the announcement video. "What went well, what went less good, and also what the players have said."
"Watch Dogs 2" will be available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 15.
