You play as an expert hacker, Marcus Holloway, who was wrongly accused of committing a crime that he did not do.
Marcus must go on to take down the system that wronged him and many others by teaming up with DedSec, a hacker group.
Marcus’ main tool at his disposal is his hacking skills.

Every person has a phone full of detailed personal info, every car has computers in it, everything is intertwined with tech, and you can take advantage of this.
You can cause a distraction by making every light at an intersection green, causing a massive wreck.
You can get someone’s bank information by looking at them, going to the nearest ATM, and getting money from their account.
You can even take control of a crane, and use that to wreak havoc on the city.
There are two modes to Watch Dogs 2 hand on- single player and multiplayer.
Single player follows Marcus’ struggle against the system that has been taking down innocent people. Multiplayer has a few different modes in it.
The first mode is cooperative story mode, where you and a friend can help each other in the single player story and help each other gain followers.
Next is the online invasions mode, a head to head mode where either you invade a single player campaign or you have your single player game invaded.
The invader will have to install malicious viruses on the defender’s systems.
Finally, there’s the bounty hunter mode. If you’re too chaotic in single player, this mode will activate.
