Let’s Play: ‘Watch Dogs 2’ I Part 21

What is this world?!

Here’s Part 21 of my playthrough of “Watch Dogs 2.”

“Watch Dogs 2” is an action-adventure game with stealth elements. Played from a third-person perspective as protagonist Marcus Holloway — a young hacker from Oakland — the game features an open-world set in a fictionalized version of the San Francisco Bay Area. Players can navigate the city on-foot or by the various vehicles featured in the game, such as cars, trucks, buses, cable cars, motorbikes, quad bikes and boats. Marcus can hack into various electronic devices connected to the ctOS system with his in-game smartphone. For example, Marcus can modify the personal information of non-player characters to have them arrested, hack and manipulate every mobile phone featured in the game, disrupt traffic by hacking cars and traffic lights, hack into monitoring cameras, and carry out “mass hacking”, which hacks the electrical equipment of a large group of people. Unlike Aiden, the protagonist of the first game, Marcus has an arsenal of advanced equipment, including a quadcopter and a remote-controlled car, both of which can be used for remote hacking and scouting. The game features several main story missions, and side-missions known as “operations.” Once completed, Marcus’ follower count will increase, which is an important part of the narrative. Marcus joins DedSec and works with fellow hackers Sitara (Tasya Teles), Wrench (Shawn Baichoo), Horatio (Michael Xavier) and Josh (Jonathan Dubsky), and they begin using their skills to expose corrupt organizations and corporations that are secretly using stolen personal ctOS data for their own ends.

This will be a full playthrough on the PlayStation 4 with a review at the end.
