Watch Dogs 2

Ubisoft has released a 19-minute “open world free-roam plus multiplayer” gameplay walkthrough of Watch Dogs 2.

The gameplay, originally shown at Gamescom 2016 last week, shows a “small slice” of the game’s “expansive” San Francisco Bay Area, as protagonist Marcus wanders through landmarks like Coit Tower and Fisherman’s Wharf. On display are the game’s enhanced hacking and driving mechanics, use of drones, deeper customization options, and world activities. Marcus also encounters various online multiplayer scenarios, where he gets caught in Bounty situations both as the hunter and the hunted, and joins a friend for co-op missions.

Watch Dogs 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15.
