Now Playing: Watch Dogs 2 - Story Trailer

Ubisoft has released a new Watch Dogs 2 trailer that focuses on story. In this video, we see main character Marcus Holloway and his group of hackers taking on a data-manipulation company called Blume.

The company's CTO, yoga practitioner Dusan Nemec, appears to be the main antagonist for the open-world sequel. Holloway and his team of "elite" hackers at Dedsec are at war to take Nemec and his organization down. The video spotlights a multitude of hacking abilities that Dedsec uses, while we also see that sometimes guns and parkour are required.

Earlier this year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said Watch Dogs 2 could become one of the company's best-selling games in its 30-year history. He specifically cited the game's "more seamless" online functionality and co-op as game elements that could help the game sell well.

Watch Dogs 2 will need to ship more than 9 million copies to outpace its predecessor, 2014's Watch Dogs. That game took place in Chicago, but the sequel is set in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The game launches on November 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you want to see more of how Watch Dogs 2 actually plays, you can check out this in-depth gameplay video.
