Watch Dogs 2 heads to San Francisco with a brand new hero

Ubisoft has officially taken the wraps off of Watch Dogs 2, the latest title in the open world action series. The game will be releasing on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 this fall.

While the original game starred a man named Aiden Pierce and was set in Chicago, Watch Dogs 2 stars a new protagonist, Marcus Holloway, and takes place in San Francisco. The game seems set to continue the first game's blend of third-person action and hacking as Marcus attempts to take down ctOS 2.0, the city-wide operating system that allows Marcus to control various elements of the city.

You'll be able to use hacking and stealth gameplay to avoid killing enemies, or you can go into your missions guns blazing. You'll be able to hack into phones, cameras, drones, and more. Marcus will have his own arsenal of custom drones, such as a ground-level wheeled drone, along with a quad-copter.

As with the first game, there will be a number of multiplayer activities, including co-operative play and PVP options.

You'll be able to take control of San Francisco on November 15, 2016.
