Watch Dogs 2 multiplayer should be a seamless experience, if Ubisoft Montreal is to be believed. The previous Watch Dogs game also had a multiplayer component, where various players could “invade” (to use a Dark Souls turn of phrase) the cities of other players and try and install a back door virus into their phone. In order to prevent that from happening you would have to hunt them down.
If what Watch Dogs 2 developer game director Danny Belanger is saying is true, Watch Dogs 2 multiplayer should work seamlessly in order to allow you and your friends to play with one another or compete against each other.
As a member of the hacker group DedSec in-universe, your character can be walking down the street and come across another DedSec member, who you can then invite to join your game to overcome something like a tough mission or just mess around in San Francisco.
Belanger says that the team has already created a number of missions that are designed for use in co-op play, so you won’t have to worry about missions being too easy either with a helper.
However, this does bring up the possibility of a mission designed for co-op being too difficult for people to do on their own.
If Watch Dogs 2 multiplayer is as seamless as Belanger says, however, you could likely do some very cool things that you wouldn’t be able to do normally in the game.
Watch Dogs 2 is a game that has a lot going for it, but also a lot of risks.
Though the first game had its high points, it got a lot of criticism due to not living up to the hype. Hopefully Watch Dogs 2 will be able to be the game that the first Watch Dogs hoped it would be.
