Watch Dogs 2 Trailer Reveals Story and Gameplay Details
As we approach the November 15 release date for Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft releases another trailer for the game. For those that may not know, Watch Dogs 2 is the (hopefully) much improved sequel to Ubisoft’s previous game by the same name. The game is an open-world action adventure game set in San Fransisco Bay Area. In this sprawling city, you play Marcus Holloway, an apparently gifted hacker part of the Dedsec hackers group, on the way to fight a massive surveillance company from using their data to control the population. ctOS 2.0 does this by manipulating elections and developing secret weapons programs.
The trailer uses the same speech from the last trailer they released, but the footage is more thorough and displays a lot more gameplay details. For example, not only can you hack anything you please, you can set cars to explode in normal traffic. Though I’m not sure how that helps to protect the everyday citizens that Dedsec is fighting for and ctOS 2.0 is trying to exploit. In addition, there is a shot where all the lights on the Blume (the office of ctOS 2.0) go down, implying the expert skill of Holloway and the Dedsec group. If that isn’t badass enough for you, Holloway goes through the motions of quite a combat situations. This includes dodging bullets at his heels and an epic jump in a car. The trailer displays a few different guns at Holloway’s disposal, from sleek to gritty, and a few of the vehicles he can drive, like a motorcycle and a helicopter.
Furthermore, the trailer introduces a new character to be part of the Dedsec team, Raymond “T-Bone” Kenney. Raymond is a welcome call-back to the first Watch Dogs game, where he was a former employee of Blume that helped develop the ctOS. Of course, he came to regret his role and worked to bring the company down. In this trailer, he is as quirky as ever. Raymond sports a yellow Hawaiian shirt with a baseball cap that reads “Mr. Poop” – classy as ever.
I am definitely excited for this game, there seem to be so many improvements from the first game, especially the story line. Indeed, I can almost accuse Ubisoft having fleshed out characters in this game.
