A new gameplay video of Watch Dogs 2 has been released today by Ubisoft. It highlights the hacking experience in the second title of the Watch Dogs franchise that’s set in San Francisco, a city that’s governed using a new and improved version of ctOS. The video shows us some of the city’s most famous landmarks like Coit Tower and Fisherman’s Wharf as protagonist Marcus walks around exploiting hacking opportunities to always remain one step ahead.
Watch Dogs 2’s new multiplayer scenarios are also highlighted in this new gameplay video from Ubisoft. The Bounty sequence is particularly interesting. When a crime is committed in the game, the authorities will pursue the protagonist.
Bounty mode enables up to three human players in the same session to join the hunt and aid the authorities in bringing down the player so that they can get rewards. It’s an entirely new spin on open-world co-op. Players who have a bounty on their head earn rewards if they are able to successfully evade the police and fellow players.
Watch Dogs 2 is set to be released on November 15th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Ubisoft expects that this new game might become one of its best-selling titles. To outpace the original title in the series, Watch Dogs 2 will have to sell more than nine million copies.
