During an interview with GamingBolt Watch Dogs 2’s game director Danny Belanger stated that AR Games won’t be returning to the sequel, instead taking the decision to concentrate on city exploration.
“AR games from Watch Dogs are not returning. We are offering more city exploration. So as you’re walking around the city, you’ll open Nethack and you’ll discover operations and secrets that will unlock side quests if you want.”
He also explained how ‘Seamless Co-op’ was going to be introduced into the game.
“What I can say today is we’re bringing seamless co-op; we’re going to have seamless hacking so someone can come in your game and hack. Now you’re part of DedSec, so you’re part of a hacker group, so we wanted those hackers to work together. So you can be in your single player game but there’s a DedSec ally that’s walking around the street, and if you want you can just go and press a button and go in co-op. We created operations meant for co-op because they’re challenging, so it’s good to have a buddy.”
You can get your hands on Watch Dogs 2 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 15.
