T-Bone, Dusan Nemec, Blume, Parkour and much more
Ubisoft is doing a pretty decent job promoting their upcoming game Watch Dogs 2. With all the videos and gameplays that we’ve seen so far, the game looks pretty hot. But, is it going to do well or is it going to be like the first Watch Dogs?
The Watch Dogs 2 – Story Trailer contains many new elements and aspects of the game. Including new characters, the boss we’ll be fighting and the true cause for the tech-chaos. Let me make it simple for you.
Marcus Holloway (0:00 – 0:17)
In the first few seconds of the trailer, Marcus Holloway (the protagonist) is the guy under the spotlight. He’s fast, he’s swift, he’s intelligent and smart and most importantly, he’s the one leading this tech-war. “That’s the guy who could help us change the world” says Sitara in an confident voice.
The DedSec Team (0:25 – 0:37)
Sitara does the voice-over as she introduces herself. Next, a new guy is being introduced. He’s name is Josh. Then comes my favorite – Wrench (the weirdo), and another black guy Horatio (no offense). You can see them partying together and having fun in the last few seconds. It isn’t always a tough job there, you just need to be careful time-to-time.
Blume and Dusan Nemec (0:38 – 1:14)
ctOS or Central Operating System that powers the whole city of San Fransisco is owned by this tech-giant called Blume. Sitara explains that Blume’s ctOS is like a giant spiderweb and gathers data from its users endlessly. They’re making backroom deals to trade its users’ private information. And that, DedSec needs to stop it. And behind everything is this one man. Blume’s CTO – Dusan Nemec. So, we now know pretty much about the antagonist. It’s Dusan of course, but I’m expecting some twists that proves he’s innocent and that someone else is behind the chaos.
“This is systemic injustice at its highest level” says Josh. To which, Marcus replies, “Let’s show him going to war with us what really means.”
Car Crash, Chaos, Parkour and Gunfights (1:15 – 2:30)
It’s the climax of the trailer. We see some deals made, hacking into cars remotely, car crashes, gunfights, biking and blackouts. This is where it gets interesting. Remember T-Bone? The guy with huge beard, a nose ring and a cool m-finger pose? Yes, he’s back! Marcus introduces him to the team. “Hey, you’re talking to Blume’s public enemy number one, son.” – T-Bone. By bringing back a character from the original game, Ubisoft is actually doing a great job. This will make players feel that it’s actually a continuation of the original game and that it has at least ‘something’ to do with that Aiden Pearce story.Then there’s some more blackouts, parkour, drones, crazy music and and a threat by Dusan to his security officer. He says, “Don’t go near DedSec. They’re my responsibility.” And a few cuts later, Marcus and Dusan are confronting each other. Dusan starts with “A few civilian casualities is the cost you have to pay for the betterment of the world.” To which he gets a punch on his face (thanks to Holloway) and, “You can’t see the people you’re stepping on.” But this Dusan guy isn’t stepping back! He says, “Guess What Marcus? GUESS WHAT! The people… They don’t care how it works, only that it does.”
Some more parkour, gunfights, hand-to-hand combat, helicopter hacking, and the trailer ends with a “Namaste” by Dusan. It kinda made me remember Fabien from GTA V.I’m actually super pumped up for the game and is looking forward to get it on the first day itself. But, no pre-order. Sorry Ubisoft, but I don’t trust you anymore. Anyways, I love reading comments and would love to read your views on the game as well.
