Taking the place of Assassin’s Creed this year in Ubisoft’s line-up is the much talked about Watch Dogs 2. Ubisoft has dumped the drab Aiden Pearce from the first game, mercifully.

You’re still a hacker, in an open-world filled with things to tunnel into digitally. New for this edition are hackable vehicles and the ability to use the CtOS 2.0 system that San Francisco uses to misidentify people in a crowd and create a distraction.

Marcus Holloway and his DedSec crew are out to expose the big Silicon Valley companies harvesting user’s data in the name of keeping them connected to each other. Marcus has two new drones at his disposal, a seriously dangerous melee weapon and the same dedication to getting things done that Pearce had.

Co-operative play is a big focus for Watch Dogs 2, with the online system that let players hack each other’s game sessions returning. The entire campaign includes co-operative play too.
