Watch Dogs 2 packshot image
Watch Dogs 2 is an open-world action game set in San Francisco. In it you play as a hacker activist Markus Holloway looking to cause anarchy in a city governed by autocratic forces. Markus's favourite pass times are listening to hip-hop, hacking (funnily enough) and hitting people with an 8-ball on a bit of string, he's quite the charater.

PC System Analysis For Watch Dogs 2 Requirements
Watch Dogs 2 runs on an upgraded version of the Disrupt game engine used for the original. A serious bump up in visual quality means Watch Dogs 2's system requirements are much more demanding. Fortunately Watch Dogs 2 looks to be very scaleable so even graphics cards three or four generations old such as the GTX 600 Series or Radeon HD 7000 series should be capable of running it. For those after higher frame rates new mid to high range graphics cards like the GTX 970 or Radeo R9 290 are required. Being open-world Watch Dogs 2 is quite CPU dependent so a quad core processor is suggested as minimum requirement.
