Watch_Dogs 2 Now Available on Store Shelves and Digital Stores

Ubisoft finally announce that that Watch_Dogs 2 is now available. For those who game on PC, it will launch on Windows PC on November 29.

In Watch_Dogs 2, you explore the San Francisco Bay Area as Marcus Holloway, a brilliant young hacker from Oakland wrongly framed for a crime he did not commit by the predictive algorithms of ctOS 2.0.  This upgraded version of the city infrastructure operating system, which was introduced in the first Watch_Dogs video game, is being used to track, control and manipulate citizens on a massive scale. As Marcus joins the hacktivist group DedSec, they decide take town ctOS and BLUME, the multinational company behind this oppressive system.

Watch_Dogs 2 features a vast and dynamic open world offering a variety of environments and gameplay possibilities with extended hacking options and a greater variety of gadgets and weapons. Players can not only hack into the city’s infrastructure but also every person and any connected device to trigger unpredictable chains of events. This level of freedom unlocks many opportunities in terms of playstyles and players can choose to use stealth hacking to complete missions without killing a single enemy or go guns blazing for a more ferocious approach.

The game also offers a brand new seamless multiplayer experience that includes both co-op and player vs. player activities, all available in a shared open world experience. PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF POSTING THIS NEWS ARTICLE THE MULTIPLAYER IS NOT LIVE DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUES.

Ubisoft states that the topics of data security, privacy and hacking are more prevalent than ever in today’s society and the Watch_Dogs brand has been exploring these themes ever since the release of the first opus in 2014. In this context, Watch_Dogs 2 offers a fictional environment linked to challenges players can relate to. Through their adventure, Marcus and the members of DedSec represent the values of the hacktivist movement that aims at fighting against oppressive practices. This framework is a way to raise the awareness of players beyond their gaming experience and perhaps even to present them with a new reflection on these major issues.
