Human Conditions, the second DLC for Watch Dogs 2, will be released February 21 on PS4. This is our biggest content addition yet, adding more than five hours of gameplay with three brand new DedSec operations, and an Elite Co-op challenge with endless replayability for hardcore hackers.
To give you a little more insight into the narrative and gameplay experience of Human Conditions, we asked producer Fabian Salomon (from the Ubisoft Paris team who developed this DLC) and scriptwriter Ethan Petty some questions.
For Honor launches February 14 on PS4, but if you’re eager to get a head start on swinging steel as a knight, samurai, or viking before then, the open beta is free to all players on PS4 today through February 12. And it packs in more features than any of the tests before it.
The open beta features nine playable heroes (out of a total 12 available at launch), as well as a new game mode, Elimination, which pits two teams against each other in a best-of-five, four-on-four match with no respawns. Teamwork — and moving quickly to revive downed players — is an essential part of victory here, so we strongly encourage you to stay in constant communication with your teammates. It’ll also give you an edge in the other available modes: Duel (1v1), Brawl (2v2), and Dominion, a four-on-four match in which two teams fight for control of a huge battlefield.
A VIP finally tipped us off about the drop location.
He had been stationed at a small farm off a dirt road, a mountain looming on the horizon. Our task: approach silently, eliminate the relatively small security force assigned to the VIP, and escort him back to base for questioning.
A new story trailer for Watch Dogs 2 just arrived, bringing with it a fresh look at major players on both sides of the conflict between hacker collective DedSec and the corrupt corporations they’re working to take down. One of their biggest targets is Blume Corporation, an entity that should be familiar to Watch Dogs players as the creators of the notorious, city-automating ctOS. This video introduces a key antagonist, who appears to be pretty high up on Blume’s payroll: their Chief Technology Officer, Dusan Nemec.
Everything you do in Watch Dogs 2 is powered by social media. Hacking into cars, unlocking doors, controlling drone tech — it all hinges on the number of followers protagonist Marcus Holloway has during play. And everything you do in Watch Dogs 2 earns you more followers. Think of them like experience points, but modernized for the San Francisco Bay Area.
Watch Dogs 2 is, among other things, about technology’s potential to unite communities and forge new connections among like-minded individuals. That’s reflected in protagonist Marcus Holloway’s constant collaboration with the Dedsec hacker collective, and their goal of continually recruiting new followers. It’s also reflected in the game’s seamless multiplayer, which invisibly merges your session with those of other players to create organic opportunities for co-op and PvP.
Freedom of choice is a major theme within Ghost Recon Wildlands’ vast and reactive open world. It not only permeates your mission to take down the Santa Blanca drug cartel, but also affects how you look doing it. From the gender of your Ghost to the clothing they wear, you can customize more than 12 different elements of your character’s appearance, including their hat, headset, glasses, hairstyle, fabric colors and patterns, and more.
Hi, I’m Laura from Reflections, one of only two artists who worked on Grow Up! BUD, our procedurally animated stumbling red robot, is back for a new adventure. After his mission to grow a giant Star Plant in Grow Home, he’s off to a new planet and heading for the moon in an acrobatic adventure to save MOM. BUD is a much-loved character, but we thought players might enjoy him even more if he had some cool new outfits!
