Take a 20-minute tour of Watch Dogs 2's open world

Watch Dogs 2 (opens in new tab) is stepping away from the dour misadventures of wrongfully-accused hacker Aiden Pearce; it's got a new protagonist with new abilities, a new city to explore, and a more upbeat attitude. And that's all well and good, but if you find yourself wondering, "But how does it play?" you might want to check out this new video from Ubisoft, showing off 20 minutes of narrated gameplay:

As you can see from the top of the video, there are eight topics the playthrough covers: the expanded hacking options, world design, improved driving controls, player customization, the new drones and gadgets Marcus has at his disposal, stealth gameplay, co-op mode, and PvP. If you thought Watch Dogs 2 was going to be more of the same, it's definitely worth a watch.
