Ubisoft confirmed that hackers will be invading the San Francisco Bay Area, the techie central will be the next location for Watch Dogs 2. News first broke by way of a leaked trailer, but Ubisoft wasted little time and started dropping the details in droves. The “world premiere” was live streamed and can be found below.

The nearly 20 minute video showcases the game’s new protagonist, Marcus. Marcus is described as a gifted young hacker, who was framed for a crime he did not commit. Marcus is able to use many gadgets such as drones and RC cars to aid his hacking abilities. He also wields a unorthodox weapon, which consists of a billiard ball attached to a bungie cord.

The world that Ubisoft Montreal has created highlights some of the most notorious spots in the Bay Area. Everything from the Embarcadero to Silicon Valley will be available for players to use as a hacking playground.

Watch Dogs 2 is set to release on November 11th. You will be able to pick up your copy on PS4, Xbox One, and PC later this year.
