When it comes to games like Watch Dogs 2, you are truly spoiled for choice, since the popularity of free-roaming, past-paced open-world action RPGs has truly exploded in the past few years, with the immense popularity of games like Assassin’s Creed and Grand Theft Auto Online.
In Watch Dogs 2, you step into the shoes of a notorious and skilled hacker affiliated with Dedsec, their Universe’s version of the hacker group Anonymous. Watch Dogs 2, made by international developer heavyweight Ubisoft, not only expands on the universe the first game established but also seeks to draw attention by fixing some of the more heavily-critiqued aspects of their last game.
The protagonist of Watch Dogs 2, Marcus Holloway, is a youthful, animated and passionate young man, trying his best to forge his way in the birthplace of the technological revolution: the San Francisco Bay area.
Here, Marcus uses his skills, contacts and knowledge to hack into valuable information, evade the police in high-speed chases, and gun his way past any armed thugs in his path. With Dedsec, Marcus works to expose the dangers of ctOS 2.0, a new program that not only controls city functions like stop lights and electricity but also hoards information on almost every resident of the city.
He does this by using the ctOS as his primary weapon. With access to it, Marcus can hack his way into almost anything, from bank accounts to cars. With this powerful weapon at your fingertips, the entire city becomes your playground, and nothing is off-limits.
Undertake difficult challenges, from racing and collecting, all the way to PVP combat, and more! The world truly comes alive around you as you blaze a trail through it, and Watch Dogs 2 could not have made a bigger splash.
