The social media specialist, Ryan Clements took to the PlayStation blog this week to reveal some more details about the new Watch Dogs 2 game.
It is currently under development by Ubisoft and will be available to play when it launches on November 15th, 2016.
He explained more about the game with the following:
Everything you do in Watch Dogs 2 is powered by social media. Hacking into cars, unlocking doors, controlling drone tech — it all hinges on the number of followers protagonist Marcus Holloway has during play. And everything you do in Watch Dogs 2 earns you more followers. Think of them like experience points, but modernized for the San Francisco Bay Area.
Players help Marcus, a brilliant hacker and victim of wrongful accusation, build his notoriety in the hacker community. The more people that follow him, the more power he can draw from their collective hardware. And that means more potent hacks, longer control over tech, and a better time for the player.
Hacking in Watch Dogs 2 benefits from a serious upgrade. Aim your cursor at any hackable object and hold L1. This turns the face buttons on the DualShock 4 into contextual commands, opening up multiple strategic options for every vulnerable device. Marcus can drive a car remotely to summon a getaway vehicle, or send one unmanned into a busy intersection to slow down police. The more followers Marcus earns, the more control he has over the world around him.
This also extends into drone play. Marcus can send a drone skyward for a supremely helpful view of the mission area, marking enemies and even remote-hacking objects from above. Alternatively, Marcus can deploy a small jumper bot (adorable) into the fray, interacting with various fuse boxes and points of interest without ever leaving the safety of a nearby hiding spot. This style of play falls into one of three categories that Ubisoft has designed for: clearing a mission without ever setting foot in the space. Marcus can also stealth through his enemies, or go all-out with guns blazing.
