The game features a new protagonist Marcus Holloway and is set in the tech metropolis of San Franciso. Accused of a crime he did not commit, Marcus must shut down ctOS 2.0, an advanced operating system networking the city infrastructure.
In the new game Marcus will have access to all kinds of new toys including drones, cars, cranes, security robots, and more. Players will also be able to hack almost everything in the world and also hack multiple human targets at once. UbiSoft has also upped the parkour element of the game and given Marcus some unusual weapons such a snooker ball on wire and a taser. Players can also attempt to play the game without killing anyone using the taser which could be a challenge.
The open world nature of the game means that players will be able to hack any vehicle and once again cause mayhem with traffic by hacking AI controlled vehicles. The game looks more open based on what we saw in today’s reveal, it’s a step up from the original game.
UbiSoft has also revealed their plans for pre-orders.
