Following widespread speculation, Ubisoft have officially shared the first details of Watch Dogs 2 which launches across Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 15 November.
Having previously witnessed injustices by the system's crime prevention algorithm, Marcus now finds himself blamed for a crime he didn't commit.
This time you won't be alone, as you'll team up with DedSec - the hacking group from the first game... Together you'll fight to wrestle control from corrupt corporations and security forces, as well as taking on criminal gangs and rival hackers.
Meet Marcus in this offbeat trailer (which manages to cram in both 3D printing and drones in one fell swoop):
There's also a more traditional CGI trailer:
Ubisoft have listened to the criticisms of the first game and tried to remedy them in the sequel. Instead of unlocking towers, you'll discover stories and gain rewards by exploring and interacting with the world, which will be fully open from the start.
The very core of the game, hacking, has been expanded. Every character, vehicle and electronic device can be toyed with in multiple ways.
New tools, weapons and hacks have been added, as well as a new melee weapon, the Thunderball. There's also a deeper level of customisation available for your character, weapons and vehicles. Your customisation will be reflected during online play too, which features revamped PvP and, a series first, co-op play.
You can pre-order, details of which can be found on the Ubisoft store, but it remains to be seen whether the game will fall into the same trap as its predecessor, as the CGI trailer in particular sets a certain visual standard which rivals the mighty GTAV, will it look this good on 15 November?
