    Ahead of E3, Ubisoft hae revealed the sequel to 2014's Watch Dogs which was met with a mixed response. After watching gameplay of the sequel it has captured my interest.

    San Francisco looks like a nice city to roam around in this time compared to Chicago, and they have added lots of new gadgets. Hopefully the characters and story are alot better than the first game.

    Release Date:

    • Nov 15th, 2016 (Xbone & PS4)
    • Nov 29th, 2016 (PC)

    Trailer:


    7 Mins Gameplay:


    18mins Gameplay + dev interviews:

    admittedly it does look a lot better that WD2 and it does appear to be more representative and true of a final product, I dont expect a downgrade on this one because to be honest it does look like something that can be achieved easily....id be shocked if we went through yet another "graphics downgrade" debacle

    Apart from the increased color palette, there's nothing about WD2's graphics which is exactly amazing. It certainly makes a change from WD1's drab, grey Chicago setting...plus I just think SF is just a more interesting city.

    first one was a badly ported average game at best.

    story was terrible

    would have to be something special for me to part with my money on this after what i feel was a bad experience with the first

    I didn't mind the first WD. To me, the hype definitely wasn't justified, but it still gave me a decent experience. However, I would like WD2 to give me more hacking power, and do some freaky shit - maybe hacking banks, shutting down various servers; create chaos basically.

    Deus Ex, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Mafia 3 and WD2. What a great year, and next year for gaming. RIP uni, RIP life.

    The biggest issue Ubisoft will face with this game is overcoming the lack of trust generated by the first game.

    Remember the hype around WD1? :rolleyes:

    And the 0day DLC packs and myriad of special editions.

    I'll wait 3-6 months after WD2 release before thinking about it.

    There are quite a few other games coming out this year I'm looking more forward to than WD2 (Deus Ex, Mafia 3, Battlefield 1, Dishonored 2, No Man's Sky). I'm happy to sit on the sidelines with WD2, read some reviews, watch a few streams and get a good sense of how good it is from that.

    The game will no doubt get a 50% price drop when the inevitable Watch Dogs 3 is announced. The series seems to be a money spinner for Ubisoft, I doubt they will stop after 2 :lol:

    It's more than reasonable to ignore ubisoft games and just wait for price drop or quality peer reviews. :thumbup: It's not like they'll run out of copies.

    The graphics and what not I don't care about but the first one was nigh unplayable for me so that is a big fat no from me on this one.

    the first one was good as i wasn't expecting too much from it really. i didn't buy into the hype or gave a damn about the graphical downgrades.
