“It’s not a game where you open your map and everything’s there…There are no towers. You just explore the world.”
This is to say that free roam is a major part of Watch Dogs 2. Players will rely on gaining other “followers” to their Deadsec hacking group to unlock more missions and such, so it’s vital that the map be unlocked from the start for them to start finding more people to join their group.
Despite their best efforts to pull me in by playing N.E.R.D’s “Spazz” every 10 minutes on the E3 show floor I kept my blinders on that this is the same series that launched with a game breaking bug not too long ago.
