When Ubisoft first released the action adventure video game, “Watch Dogs,” back in 2014, it broke the record for biggest first day sales in Ubisoft history.  Fans were eager to play as Aiden Pearce, a hacker who takes on different “missions” in Chicago. Well, 2 years later, Ubisoft has just announced the followup to this successful game.  Here is the official press release and a look at what you can expect.

Today, Ubisoft® announced that Watch_Dogs® 2, the newest installment in the blockbuster Watch_Dogs franchise, will be available worldwide on November 15 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.

wd1Watch_Dogs 2 is the product of over two years of intensive development by the original creative team behind the Watch_Dogs brand. Players enter a massive and dynamic open world environment set in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is the latest city to adopt ctOS 2.0, an advanced operating system networking the city infrastructure, and in the wrong hands, ctOS 2.0 can be used to invasively control and manipulate everyday citizens.

Players will explore the birthplace of the tech revolution as Marcus Holloway, a brilliant young hacker who has fallen victim to ctOS 2.0’s predictive algorithms and is accused of a crime he did not commit. In Marcus’ quest to shut down ctOS 2.0 for good, hacking is the ultimate weapon, and players can not only hack into the city’s infrastructure but also every person and any connected device they possess, to trigger unpredictable chains of events.

With the ability to take control of drones, cars, cranes, security robots and much more at their disposal, players can choose whether to use stealth hacking to complete missions without killing a single enemy or go guns blazing for a more ferocious approach.
