Hunt down the Zodiac Killer with Watch Dogs 2's pre-order bonus

Watch Dogs 2 will be released on November 15. Set in the San Francisco's Bay Area, players will assume the role of Marcus Holloway, a hacker extraordinaire. The Watch Dogs games are open world, action adventure games which focus on being able to hack into any electronic device. Watch Dogs 2 sees Marcus working with hacker team Deadsec to take down the city's security surveillance. Pre-ordering the game now will net you the Zodiac Killer mission, as detailed in the below trailer.

The Zodiac Killer is a real-life murder suspect, who spent the late 60's and early 70's killing people and terrorizing the police and new papers with coded messages. To date, only one of the killer's coded messages has been partially deciphered, and his identity still remains unknown, even fifty years later.

Marcus Holloway joins forces with Deadsec, a notorious hacker group. This bonus mission sees a killer in their midst, who is staging the bodies of his victims all over Oakland, just like the real Zodiac's victims. This new threat is also sending encoded messages to the police. Will Marcus be able to crack them and discover the copycat? It's down to you.

Watch Dogs 2 lands on November 15th, 2016 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
