After a disappointing Watch Dogs game, Ubisoft is set to release Watch Dogs 2 on November 15, 2016 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Watch Dogs 2 is an upcoming science-fiction open world action-adventure third person shooter game. Two years ago, its prequel Watch Dogs game was released, but it turned out to be below expectations and over-hyped.
Although its sales were good and the game was lauded by fans for its unique concept of hacking the real world’s mechanisms, there were some flaws in it. Some complained that it was too repetitive. Ubisoft has promised that Watch Dogs 2 will be different and it will revolutionize video games industry.
After Chicago, this time the focus is on San Francisco’s step. San Francisco becomes the next city to install the CtOS surveillance system, which connects everyone with everything. The game features a new protagonist, Marcus Holloway, a young and intelligent hacker who was wrongly framed for a crime he did not commit. The upgraded CtOS system 2.0 connects his personal information to the crime. Realizing the system brings harm to innocent citizens of San Francisco, he decides to work with the hacking group DedSec to take down the city’s CtOS 2.0, and Blume, the creator of the CtOS system.
Watch Dogs 2’s graphics are stunning and a visual treat. In its first gameplay video, the city looks very realistic and the world is very detailed. The lightning effects and textures were also good. Watch Dogs 2 works with the help of a Direct X12 engine which is extremely optimized.
Watch Dogs 2 will follow the same basic gameplay structure as its predecessor, with developer Ubisoft Montreal adding many cool features and improvements from the first game. In the first part, the hacking abilities were limited to some objects only, now it seems the possibilities of electric madness are almost limitless. There is a wide range of objects that can be hacked. You can hack any nearby vehicle, camera or appliance. These objects can be used to distract enemies and performing stealth kills. You can literally create havoc. Melee combat has also been modified, placing larger emphasis on player speed and DIY weapon customization. You can complete a mission without disturbing a single enemy with your stealth ability. There will be even more side missions this time around.
Watch Dogs 2 will have a smooth co-operative play into the open world. You will be able to approach random players and form a group with them using an in-game prompt. With this feature you can play co-op missions and create havoc.
Fans are eagerly waiting for this sequel. The trailer and the first gameplay video got a great reception. The driving looks much improved from its prequel. The graphics look great. There is a great hype about this part as well. But to know whether this game will be awesome or not, we will have to wait till November 15.
