New Ubisoft Space Game Revealed Inside Watch Dogs 2

New Ubisoft Space Game Revealed Inside Watch Dogs 2

Players can "hack" into Ubisoft's servers in Watch Dogs 2 to reveal a teaser for an upcoming title.

Well this certainly is a very interesting way to tease a game. In the Watch Dogs universe, "Ubisoft" as a company exists, and as you play as a man who can hack traffic lights, cars, and probably even dogs, you can hack into their servers. By doing just that, you'll be rewarded with the video to the right: a teaser trailer for a brand new Ubisoft game.

The new game, which did not have its title revealed, appears to be a space-sim in the vein of No Man's Sky. However, the technology does appear to be a lot more realistic, and the cowboy music going in the background gives it a pretty strong Cowboy Bebop vibe.

That's all we know about the game right now. We're not even 100% sure if it is an actual new Ubisoft game the studio is working on or just an easter egg created specifically for Watch Dogs 2. We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment.

So it's pretty much an advertisement in the game?

I bet more people are excited for this, than Watch Dogs 2.

Not that I'm dissing on either, but I really don't see anything bar the vaguest of similarities to Cowboy Bebop, other than less advanced space technology (e.g. cetrifugal force for gravity) and the sountrack. The aesthetic is way different, and the focus seems to be on the setting rather than characters.

And I guess insert open world = open universe joke or something, I dunno.

That's very clever!

A proceedurally generated universe of pointless busywork.

This game, if its real, will exemplify Ubisoft.

I like the giant watermarks. Doesn't kill the buzz at all.

if it's real, then it will most likely be far cry in space
if not, then it's a glorious pisstake on no man's sky

I cant wait to see how we'll climb a radio tower/Bell tower/Multi level car park/misc vague tower shape in space.
