Watch Dogs 2 looks like it’s the sequel the franchise deserves, with lots of improvements and a brand new mode revealed.
During Ubisoft’s Gamescom briefing, a new online multiplayer mode, titled Bounty Hunter, is coming to Watch Dogs 2. If you cause too much chaos during your play session and become wanted by the police, other players may seamlessly jump in to your world and help the forces in taking you down for a price.
the Bounty Hunter mode is tied to the police heat system and playable by two to four players. When a player creates too much chaos in the single player open world experience and is pursued by the police, the conflict may trigger a Bounty Hunter PVP event pitting the target against up to three rival hunter players who seamlessly join the pursuit and try to neutralize the target. Additionally, players can manually trigger a bounty on themselves using the Contacts app on Marcus’ in-game phone.
The first Watch Dogs included a mode where you have to hack another player without getting spotted till the data transfers completely. This time around, you will be able to do it with a friend in co-op.
Finally, Online Co-op allows two players to team up seamlessly and lets them explore the San Francisco Bay Area or participate in cooperative missions. Also in co-op, players can also participate in Hacking Invasion and Bounty Hunter activities, adding even more depth and excitement to their seamless online experience.
