The first Watch Dogs game was a little bit of a letdown — let’s just admit it to ourselves.
Now, it looks like Ubisoft is ready to rectify that problem with the all-new way better Watch Dogs 2. The title was revealed today by the company, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it when we take over the E3 2016 show floor next week!
The new game takes place in San Francisco, and features some major new enhancements and additions that are sure to keep players coming back for more.
Here’s the official reveal — trust me, watch the whole thing:
About Watch_Dogs 2
Watch_Dogs 2 is an open world action-adventure game where the San Francisco Bay Area is your living playground and hacking is your weapon to bend the city – and its people – to your will. Step into the shoes of Marcus Holloway, a brilliant hacker, and journey to pull off the Hack of the Century: a crippling shutdown of ctOS 2.0, an invasive technology used by the powerful to silently control everyday citizens. Watch_Dogs 2 will be available on PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, and Windows PC on November 15, 2016.
WELCOME TO THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
Explore a massive and dynamic open world offering an incredible variety of gameplay possibilities. Hack your way through traffic while you engage in dangerous car chases through the winding streets of San Francisco, traverse the rooftops of the colorful and vibrant neighborhoods of Oakland, and infiltrate the cutting-edge offices of Silicon Valley companies. There are many secrets to uncover in the birthplace of the tech revolution.
HACKING IS YOUR WEAPON
Hack into the city’s infrastructure, every connected device, and everyone’s personal database. Take control of drones, cars, cranes, security robots, and much more.

YOU ARE IN CTRL
