Watch_Dogs 2 was the talk of the town at Ubisoft’s E3 2016 press conference. From its diverse cast, lighter plot, and more appealing gameplay, this game is expected to right the wrongs that the first title established. Ubisoft has been releasing this series of videos called Remote Play to help get players acquainted with the world, characters, and story. The recently released first episode titled “Get To Know Marcus and Dedsec” highlights our lead characters, showing some of their backstory. Straight from the mouths of the scriptwriter and voice actors, we get a look at these rebels as they seek to take down their corrupt government, and expose some of their more negligent behavior. That video can be seen below.
This game is taking a much different approach to the themes of Watch_Dogs than its predecessor. Rather than focusing on an individual’s story in this setting of high end hackery, this game will focus on the impact that these behaviors have on the world. Marcus and company are working together on a much larger scale than Alden and his journey.
The gameplay footage shown in the E3 video seems to suggest that there will be a completely passive option for playthroughs.
Watch_Dogs 2 will launch on November 15th for consoles and PC alike, and is expected to have a companion film.
