Watchdogs Are Back with a new Sequel

Those who witnessed the amazing presentations at the E3 Convention Centre in Los Angeles know that there are some great game titles to be expected in 2016 and 2017.

Most of them we have seen or at least heard of, but one, in particular, was not expected.

We are talking of course about Watch Dogs 2. This time, Aiden is not the main protagonist but his work from the previous storyline is heard of and recognized as a contribution to their cause that is focusing on bringing down ctOS 2.0 and the government anti-hacking organization known as Blume.

What we know about the plot so far.

In this sequel, the story is set in California, Los Angeles, as you take control of Marcus Holloway a computer genius, who is accused by Blume of hacking operations that he wasn’t involved in.

Shortly after the accusation, Marcus is contacted by DedSec operatives and recruited. DedSec also informs him about Blume’s previous mischief in Chicago regarding the usage of ctOS system.

So as we can see, Aiden’s and T-Bone’s actions from the previous chapters of the game inspired DedSec members to continue to fight corruption in the system.

What can we expect from the gameplay itself?

The gameplay is not totally changed, but rather redeveloped using the old system of profiling in a new and advanced way. Using the Profiler system has changed in a way that it is no longer represented in a square from which you operate.

Now you can choose your actions like hack car, hack a phone or any other piece of technology available for manipulation through hacking, by selecting the shape of it as everything turns black.

In this case, hackable objects are highlighted so it is more obvious what can be interacted with and what not. New vehicles and equipment are also available in the California Bay Area so players will be granted with more freedom in completing their tasks.

For example, Marcus has a drone that he can control, which can monitor the surroundings as well as interact by hacking cameras, security systems, and every available electronic device. This brings more to the covert and tactical angle of the game, as players can explore the vicinity by staying hidden under cover.

Game release, system requirements, and other related information.

This game, as announced by Ubisoft’s team, will be available from November 15th for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Minimum system requirements are at least a dual core processor running on 3.0GHz, 6 GB of RAM, a graphic card equivalent or better than Nvidia GeForce GTX460 and 25 GB of free space for the game itself.

As no official system requirements are announced, this is what should be required to run the game and play it without low framerates.

The game will also support a multiplayer option, so you will be able to team up with other members of DedSec, controlled by your friends and complete the main objective and various side quests. The gameplay from E3 conference provided extremely interesting gameplay so we expect a lot from this sequel.
