Ubisoft Officially Unveils Watch_Dogs 2


Watch_Dogs 2 has been officially unveiled by Ubisoft today and confirms the leaks that Watch_Dogs 2 will take place in San Francisco and release this year.

The story follows young hacker Marcus Holloway who has been accused of a crime he did not commit by ctOS 2.0’s predictive algorithms and now he must fight the machine and shut the evil tech corporation down. The game will take to the streets of San Francisco, Oakland and Silicon Valley where the hackable tech is abundant.


Here is the official synopsis from Watch_Dogs 2 from the press release:

“Players will explore the birthplace of the tech revolution as Marcus Holloway, a brilliant young hacker who has fallen victim to ctOS 2.0’s predictive algorithms and is accused of a crime he did not commit. 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.”

In addition to the announcement trailer we have a second video that is more style than substance, but is a cool look at the main protagonist in the game.


Watch_Dogs 2 is set to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 15th. There will be three editions of the game, the standard edition, Deluxe Edition and Gold Edition.

Deluxe Edition includes the Game and the Deluxe pack of digital customization items.
Gold Edition includes the Game, the Deluxe pack of digital customization items and the Season Pass.
