Watch Dogs 2 will set players on a “no killing” path

If you prefer stealth over violence, Watch Dogs 2 has something for you.

For those of you who played the first Watch Dogs, you may remember the missions where you had to shoot your way out of certain situations because the bad guys surrounded you. Watch Dogs 2, however, is offering players a more “stealthy” kind of gameplay, where it’s completely possible to get yourself out of a bad situation without killing anyone.

Dominic Guay, the senior producer of Watch Dogs 2, has confirmed that the sequel will allow players to fully exploit stealth combat. In Guay’s words:

 “It was important to us that players are free in the style they want to play. So play stealth, play non-lethal, play guns blazing, explosive and guns, or play full hacking. It’s up to you to decide how you’re going to play.” 

Based on Guay’s statement, players will have a choice: go in hard, or go in without anyone knowing you were there. It’s all about player preference at that point.

Other good news is that Watch Dogs 2 is set to be released on November 15, 2016, for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is also adding co-op missions for players, so friends can go full stealth mode — or guns blazing — together. Once again, it’s all about player preference. With so much exciting information released, fans of the previous game will have new opportunities to explore. Hackers, get ready.
