Watch Dogs 2 - Ubisoft's other open world IP returns

October 29th… Sooner than I expected :)

Indeed, fall is now getting flooded with great games .

There was some good looking stuff. I may actually pick up and play an Assassin’s Creed game, again.

edit - anyone know how we’re all getting the rewards despite not being able to log in?

but it’s down for maintenance atm.

UPDATE 5PM EST: We hope you enjoyed Ubisoft Forward! The issue with our log in services should now be resolved. We are sorry that we were unable to fulfill our rewards drops in real-time during the show but we will be rewarding everyone with a Ubisoft account with the goods we planned to distribute during Forward as soon as we can. We’ll update you as soon as we can with more details on the rewards, even if you were unable to log in successfully during the event. We appreciate your patience!

The only thing that would make me happier would be if London were in black and white until you liberated each part.

Ooooh the Saboteur style , wish more games did that.

Is this WD2 giveaway PC only or can I snag it for my kids on PS4?

PC only.

So you have to watch the live broadcast (which hasn’t started yet) in order to get Watch Dogs 2?

Dunno, but it was 6 hours ago…

The Ubisoft servers got spammed so most people weren’t able to login during the event. Try this new link to signup for the game:

Thanks to coronavirus, the silly mask is a real thing now:

I am playing this again, because backlog cleaning! Uplay tells me I am now 66% complete.

And I gotta say the mission where you hack the world, was freaking awesome. This game is best when there is no combat needed. :)

The entire open world could be reduced by half, and just have the player focus on main and side missions. All the extra ubistuff really makes the game less fun.

That is a fun mission :)

I did the motorbike races, and the various research points etc that were like parkour, crane and drone puzzles. I thought that all worked well. I skipped all the co-op and online stuff. I think an open world where you have a car feels different from one where you’re on foot. Makes more sense just to drive places you need, like real life. On foot I have to explore!

And I am nearing the end, as the game told me via THIS IS THE FINAL MISSION popup.

Overall I am not sure that the story in this was all that good. But the characters were all unique and interesting enough.

Best mission in the game was : The one with the giant spider robot.

Yeah there’s that weird break in pace at the beach festival but a lot of the good missions come after that.

Well that’s it for me, main story done, gg and all that.

HUGS!

I loved that game, the characters, the world and its atmosphere of happy upbeat let’s fight the Man punkiness.

Sometimes the systems in this game really sing when you find the right gear to do an infiltration mission. There’s the bones of a much better game here if that were emphasized and expanded upon in place of the mediocre open world shenanigans. That said, I really enjoyed this one too, more than I expected. Got it free in that giveaway a couple weeks back fwiw.
