The PlayStaion Blog has provided some details about two new multiplayer modes coming up in Watch Dogs 2: Bounty, and Hacking Invasion. Hacking Invasion isn’t anything new; it’s pretty similar to the multiplayer mode we saw in the first game, where other players can enter your world and hack you. You would then have to track them down before the hack is complete. Bounty, on the other hand, is a little more exciting.
‘Offering a big rush of PvP adrenaline, Bounty puts a new wrinkle in Watch Dogs 2’s police heat system; cause enough chaos, and suddenly it won’t just be the cops breathing down your neck. Your police chase might spill over into a rival player’s game, giving them the opportunity to join in as a hunter. The longer you go without getting caught, the more hunters can join, with up to three on your tail at a time.’
Hunters who manage to take down the player will be rewarded with more followers – which seems like the main reward ‘currency’ you get for completing activities in the game in general. Players can also try to take down the hunters for extra rewards, but of course, survival should still be your primary focus.
Watch Dogs 2 is set to be released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15.
