  • News Strut Across San Francisco in Watch Dogs 2 Timelapse

    San Fran's biggest fan

    What year is it? Watch Dogs 2 is a good couple of years old now, but there’s renewed interest in the series as Ubisoft prepares to announce its Brit-based sequel. So here’s a video reminder of just how good the sequel’s Bay Area was, as one player has decided to strut across the entire map in a nifty new timelapse video...

  • News Watch Dogs 2's Biggest Ever Update Drops This Month

    Adds PvP, online races, more

    Watch Dogs 2 garnered a decent amount of praise when it launched late last year, but its arrival didn't really set the world alight. Although it's commonly considered to be a sequel that improves upon just about everything that its predecessor got right, it released in a crowded period and was unfortunately overlooked by...

  • News Which City Will Watch Dogs 3 Be Set In?

    New tease points to outside America

    A new ending has been patched into Watch Dogs 2 which teases the location of the next game in the series. Ubisoft dropped a meaty 10GB patch for the open world title earlier this week, adding new clothing, bug fixes, and the aforementioned concluding cut-scene. There are spoilers in this article, so if you don't...

  • News Watch Dogs 2 Hacks Together a Free Demo on PS4

    And you can download it now

    Ubisoft's released a playable demo for Watch Dogs 2 on the PlayStation 4, and it appears to be quite meaty. You can actually sample the whole game - co-op and all - but you'll only be able to play for three hours before it ends. We suppose that with an open world title like Watch Dogs 2, though, this format makes more...

  • News Watch Dogs 2's Seamless Multiplayer Arrives on PS4

    Only a week late

    Watch Dogs 2 is finally working as intended… Well, maybe. The game's "seamless multiplayer" functionality was enabled on the PlayStation 4 a couple of hours ago – just a week after the open world adventure's original launch. You'll now be able to invite and search for co-op partners, hack into rival players' game worlds, and...

  • News Ubisoft Hopes Watch Dogs 2 Has a Long Sales Tail

    Publisher weighs in on woof launch

    Watch Dogs 2 has got off to an atrocious start, selling some 300,000 units less than its predecessor at launch in the UK alone. So bad are the numbers that they've prompted publisher Ubisoft to comment, with the firm wagging its tail in the direction of the release's critical response as evidence that it may yet...

  • Poll What Do You Think of Watch Dogs 2 on PS4?

    Top dog or dog turd?

    Watch Dogs 2 is out on PlayStation 4, and according to our very own Matt Adcock, it's supposed to be pretty darn good. The sandbox sequel is a lot more colourful than its rather dreary predecessor, with Ubisoft trying extra hard to pump some character into proceedings. But now that we've had our say - review score pending - we...

  • News Ubisoft to Patch Some Panties onto Watch Dogs 2's Starkers Models

    A cover up

    Prudence prevails again: Watch Dogs 2's nudists will no longer be going commando. You may have read our earlier story on the player who got banned for sharing a shot of one character's honeypot – well, Ubisoft has now responded, and promised to patch some panties into the game. But is this really the solution? The company claims that...

  • News Don't Even Think About Getting Saucy with the Share Button in Watch Dogs 2

    Sony issues ban for honeypot shot

    Once again the immaturity of the games industry (and the world at large, really) has reared its ugly head: a PlayStation Network user has been banned for sharing an image of a lady's genitalia in Watch Dogs 2. That ban has since made headlines around the web, and shadily has been extended from a week to a month –...

  • Deals Take a Cheap PS4 Watch Dogs Bundle for a Walk

    One to wag your tail over

    Amazon UK's starting Black Friday a little early this year with a range of PlayStation 4 deals leading into the big event. As of right now, it's selling a 500GB PS4 Slim with Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2 for just £239.99. That represents a big saving compared to its usual price of £285.99. Bargain bin, eh? You ca

  • News Watch Dogs 2 Looks Tidy on PS4 Pro But Has a Few Performance Dips

    Woof

    Dig out the frame counters and pay extra attention to the aliasing: Digital Foundry has dropped its preliminary Watch Dogs 2 report. And, in what must be becoming irritating news for Sony, the PlayStation 4 Pro version actually has a handful more framerate dips than its PS4 counterpart. We're talking a couple of frames under the most stressful...

  • News Watch Dogs 2's Multiplayer Is Unlikely to Work on Launch Day

    Patch submitted to Sony

    Wow, this is something else: Watch Dogs 2's multiplayer is unlikely to work properly on launch day. There have been reports all weekend that the game's seamless encounters and random co-op missions don't function as intended, but we'd waved it all aside as a pre-release blip. However, it turns out that Ubisoft has only just...

  • Round Up Watch Dogs 2 PS4 Reviews Bark Up the Right Tree

    Woof, woof

    Watch Dogs 2 has launched a full-scale assault on every gaming website apart from our own, and thus a full-range of scores have been extracted based upon the open world adventure's source code. It's worth nothing that, from what we understand, the multiplayer is completely crunk at the moment, so you may want to turn your attention away...

  • News A Trailer for a New Ubisoft Game May Have Been Found in Watch Dogs 2

    To a Ubisoft tower and beyond

    For a game all about hacking, it probably shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that a trailer for what appears to be a new title from Ubisoft has been found in Watch Dogs 2. After breaking into UbiHQ in the game, NeoGAF user FlammableAce was rewarded with the following video: Could this be Ubisoft's own take on...

  • News Watch Dogs 2 Earns Some New Followers with PS4 Launch Trailer

    Like

    Watch Dogs 2 has spread its social media influence with a new PlayStation 4 launch trailer. The title, which will worm its way into your console next week, doesn't appear to have as much hype behind it as its hotly anticipated predecessor – but it looks like it's got ten times the personality, at least. Alright, some of the nerdy dialogue is...

  • News Tap Up 30 Minutes of Watch Dogs 2 Gameplay

    Hacked off

    It's one of the biggest games of the year, but our looks at Watch Dogs 2 have been limited to say the least.

  • News You Won't Have to Kill Anyone to Reach the End of Watch Dogs 2

    Hack attack

    Watch Dogs 2 appears to be going the route of full player choice, based on the comments of Danny Belanger, the sandbox sequel's director. According to Belanger, utilising deadly force is only one option when it comes to taking out the baddies - you don't have to kill a single one of them in order to reach the game's ending. "We're using...

    You know, aside from the f***ing guy with the hashtag eyes, Watch Dogs 2 actually looks pretty good, as evidenced by its E3 2016 gameplay demo. The video that we've embedded made a splash at Ubisoft's press conference, and was honestly one of the best parts of the French publisher's show. In it, we get to see main character...

  • News Watch Dogs 2's Protagonist Has a Serious Hackitude Problem

    Less of an Android than Aiden, though

    Aiden Pearce and his iconic cap are out; Marcus Holloway and his skinny jeans are in.

    San Frantastic

    Hackers may have obtained access to Watch Dogs 2's marketing materials earlier than expected, but Ubisoft has now officially revealed the game.

  • News Watch Dogs 2's First PS4 Trailer Is Really Something Else

    Hmm

    What the fine vanilla fudge is this? Watch Dogs 2's first commercial has leaked via Twitch, and it's definitely got a bigger identity than its predecessor – we're just not convinced by its faux-gangster theme. The clip confirms the game's San Francisco setting, and shows hipsters and cartel members jammin' to some bad rap wearing horse masks...

  • Rumour Is This Watch Dogs 2's Main Character?

    Well, he does have an iconic cap

    Watch Dogs 2 is undoubtedly going to be on show at E3 next month, but we wouldn't be surprised if Ubisoft was planning on teasing the reveal before the big event kicks off.
