Watch Dogs 2 – Story Trailer Reveals More About DedSec’s War

So far, we’ve learned a few key things about Marcus Holloway, protagonist of Watch Dogs 2 and member of hacker collective DedSec. We know he and his buddies are idealistic activists, dead-set against the use of technology as a method of corporate surveillance and control. But who, exactly, is grabbing for that control? In the new story trailer, we’re introduced to Blume CTO Dusan Nemec, an ambitious yoga enthusiast who views DedSec as a serious threat. We also get our first real look at DedSec members Horatio and Josh, and a confirmed appearance by someone very familiar to fans of the first Watch Dogs.

Set in an open-world recreation of the San Francisco Bay Area, Watch Dogs 2 will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15. For more on what’s in store in this hacker’s paradise, check out our previous coverage:
