Vagthunde delivered a lot of novel concepts, including an innovative and versatile smartphone hacking abilities. However, critics still bashed the game for lacking personality and flavor in both the protagonist and in its interpretation of the city of Chicago. It looks like the dev team took the criticism to heart, because we’re already seeing a lot more attitude and bravados in Watch Dogs 2.
Remember pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli, the infamous “Pharma Douche” who raised the price of antiparasitic drug Daraprim by 5,556 percent (from $13.50 to $750) and purchased the only copy of Wu-Tang’s new album for a million dollars? The team at Ubisoft didn’t and created a doppleganger in Watch Dogs 2 – pharmaceutical CEO Gene Carcani, who drastically raised the price of his company’s medicine and offered to buy rapper Bobo Dakes new album for a million bucks. Apparently, Ubisoft saw no need to be subtle about it.
In this mission, protagonist Marcus Holloway will use this opportunity to con Carcani a couple million dollars by convincing him that his is Bobo Dakes. Holloway will have to swipe an unreleased track from Bobo to trick Carcani into believing that he’s legit.
Tjek den fulde mission her, høflighed af Polygon:
But that’s not all – Watch Dogs 2 takes a dig at Trump as well. Meet San Francisco politician Mark Thruss , whose campaign slogan is “Let’s Make The Bay Area Stronger.” The DedSec crew aren’t buying it and one of Marcus’ missions is to climb the billboard and vandalize it with the DedSec skull and a couple poop emojis. It’s not exactly a sophisticated hacking mission and it doesn’t seem like an action of any true significance, but damn if it doesn’t look fun as hell:
Sabotage Mark Thruss’ billboard. We all know his Make The Bay Area Strong Again slogan is bullshit, anyway.
