Watch Dogs 2 Announced - Look Out San Francisco


After a few leaks earlier in the week, Ubisoft have official confirmed Watch Dogs 2, but this time the series is jumping from the windy city, to the San Francisco Bay Area. The game is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 15th



San Francisco is the latest city to adopt the ctOS 2.0 program and it now supports predictive algorithms, to help predict crimes before they happen. This is what gets the new protagonist, Marcus Holloway in on the action, accused of a crime he did not commit, the brilliant young hacker will have to fight back against the system.



“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.”

In Marcus’ quest to shut down ctOS 2.0 for good, hacking is the ultimate weapon, and players can not only hack into the city’s infrastructure but also every person and any connected device they possess to trigger unpredictable chains of events. With the ability to take control of drones, cars, cranes, security robots, and much more at their disposal, players can choose whether to use stealth hacking to complete missions without 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.
