Watch Dogs 2 (PS4/XB1/PC, Fall 2016?)

And now it’s time for an annual Ubisoft tradition: the announcement of an announcement. Per this lame teaser, Watch Dogs 2 will be officially unveiled on Wednesday at 12pm Eastern (June 8, 2016).

Fortunately, Kotaku has already learned most of the important details about Watch Dogs 2: It’s set in San Francisco, it stars a black hacker named Marcus, and we’re expecting it for PS4/XB1/PC this fall (unless they’ve delayed it for some reason). Two days ‘til we see the game in action.

I liked the first game, although it had a lot of issues. I'd probably get this, but not at full price.

Rumor is that it is set in San Francisco.

No problem. I am interested in this game but will likely get it when it is about 30-40 bucks. We will see how it plays out come tomorrow.

I have seen that argument a lot and laugh when people not only comment once but over and over again trying to persuade people to simply dismiss this game. There was nothing in the game reveal videos that look like they will need to be downgraded.

Point is simply that Ubisoft games have had a history of showing off something a lot better then the final product, including the original Watch Dogs. Seems like a fair thing to make jabs at.

Anyway...

I like Watch Dogs on a conceptual level, I hope they figure out how to make it into a good game.

I find it a little odd that they are ditching everything that they set up in the first game to go with a completely new location and character. Didn't the first one sell pretty good?

Yeah Shea - you missed the point of the video. Ubisoft promises an exceptionally polished game on most of their titles only to delivery the exact opposite.

New trailer looked amazing...definitely not picking this one up until I see it action though.

I get the point of the video as I have seen it many times. At what point do we just move on and see what happens with this one?

I really enjoyed the first game. It had flaws, but it did a half decent job at the first game in the series. This looks like it takes everything and improves on them. Looks very nice in the videos.

And someone mentioned why they decided to set this in a different city with a different lead character, well they have done that repeatedly with the GTA series and i prefer it that way. I would not want to keep revisiting the same city and character.

I do hope they make it a little easier with the cops in this one. In the first game th cops went from nothing to all out chasing far too quickly and were much harder to shake than in the GTA games. Made it feel more unrealistic and more of a pain when playing.

If it's anything like their recreation of Chicago it will just be a few famous buildings and the Golden Gate bridge.

Re: Watch Dogs 2 (PS4/XB1/PC, Fall 2016?)

When I saw the announcements for the first game I was amazed. It looked really revolutionary and advanced. I actually thought it would be too hard for me. I think I didn't get the game on release date.

When I played the first game I realized that the game was nothing like the previews I've watched.

But after a few hours I was just having so much fun. I didn't get all the achievements, I didn't care about several aspects of the game, but the game gave me 30+ hours of fun. Being from the SF Bay Area, I expect the new game to do the same.

But, San Francisco is really small. I could walk through all of SF in one hour. Remember, SF is just 49 square miles.

This comes out tomorrow. I've got a copy on the way from GameFly. Looks like no early reviews but impressions are trickling in now. I'm looking forward to messing around with it later this week.

Apparently Ubisoft has (temporarily) pulled the plug on PvP Multiplayer, so most review scores are tentative or incomplete.
