Since E3 is apparently 2 weeks long now, Ubisoft officially revealed Watch Dogs 2 in a 15 minute livestream this morning.
Watch Dogs 2 is moving from Chicago to sunny San Francisco. The CtOS system prevalent in the first game will be making a return, and this time almost everything is hackable. You can hack into every car, every person, and almost every electronic device. The tools are also deeper, as you can now do multiple hacks at the same time causing city wide destruction. You can also change NPC's profiles so that they get framed for arrest or maybe try and resist arrest.
Watch Dogs will feature a new protagonist, Marcus. Marcus is a member of DedSec, a hacktivist group that we saw in the first game. This game has a heavier focus on the underground culture of hacking and seems to take inspiration from real hacker groups like Anonymous.
Ubisoft also promises improved driving mechanics; still offering variety and depth of vehicles, but making it more accessible. Multiplayer is also expanded upon. It will now be constantly online with not load screens or seperate menus.
You can watch the livestream below to see Ubisoft go deeper on a lot of the aforementioned topics (livestream begins at 14:30).
Watch Dogs releases November 15, 2016; for both Xbox One and Playstation 4.
