Watch Dogs 2 ad leaks before official reveal livestream

Thanks to a few timely leaks (feel free to put that word in inverted commas if you’re that sort) we already know that Ubisoft will be showing off a sequel to Watch_Dogs at E3 next week. I’m one of the few who really, really enjoyed the first game.

It may have had a protagonist who had the personality and emotional range of a pumpkin, but it also had some mechanics – rooted in improbable techromancy as they were – that made it really fun to play. So then, I’m one of the perhaps few people who’re really keen to see what Ubisoft manages with a sequel – in the hopes that they have a more interesting lead character, some better general gameplay and a city that feels a little more alive than the digital Windy City did.

We know that this time the game is set in San Francisco and stars a different antihero – and more details are expected through a livestream today that’s supposed to go up at 5PM UK Time. It seems that another leak has happened, this time through Twitch. A trailer for the game seems to have gone live prematurely, showing a little more of what you can expect in the sequel.

There’s no real gameplay shown in the trailer, which is capped (unfortunately) at a blurry 360p and set to N.E.R.D’s “Spaz.” I have to say though, that this doesn’t give me a very good first impression.

We’ll see more of the game later today – and, I suspect, a lot more still at E3 next week.

      What’s with the rap music in every ubisoft trailer nowadays? What, because it’s one guy with a mic, the music now comes at half price?!

    These leaks are way too suspicious to be actual leaks…

    That said……..urgh……that trailer looks horrible. I just want to punch those guys in the vid. I don’t know why, but I really want to punch them.

            I think that might have had to do with me having to google discord before I now joined…

            Hehe, so what’s the groups’ tag?

          Have you ever played Poker Night at the Inventory 2?

          There’s a Borderlands themed table that features Steve, and when you knock out Claptrap he’s like… “Heyo. Heyo? HEYOOOOOOooooooooo…..” BWHAHAHAHA

    While not a fan of the music, I kinda liked the trailer – you can’t say they lack personality now. Albeit judging by a lousy 30 seconds.

    Btw, Watch_Dogs is on special on Steam right now. R111 and cents.

      Yeah, it’s too early to judge, but for me personally, they all look so stereotypical, obnoxiously so. Edgy hacker trash.

        True, but it’s infinitely more interesting than Blandyman Bland and his iconic cap.

    Looking at the trailer a second time….. I bet the protagonist has his own Vine channel

    Just a reminder that what you see at E3 is not what you get.

    Ubisoft: Let’s leak Watch Dogs 2 a bit earlier and then request a takedown so it looks like we didn’t do it 😀
