Watch Dogs 2 Gets Special Editions, "Zodiac Killer" Preorder Bonus Mission
"An unwanted ghost of San Francisco's past has resurfaced after fifty years."
As part of the Watch Dogs 2 announcement event today, Ubisoft revealed a preorder-exclusive mission and premium versions of the open-world game.
The mission is called "Zodiac Killer," and it will see the infamous Zodiac Killer, who was never found, return to the city. "An unwanted ghost of San Francisco's past has resurfaced after fifty years," reads a line from the official description.
As a reward for completing the mission, players will receive an "exclusive outfit," though Ubisoft did not detail it any further.
As for the three premium versions, these include Deluxe, Gold, and Collector's. Pricing has not been officially announced, but Amazon says the Deluxe is $70 and Gold is $100. The retailer doesn't have a page up for the Collector's Edition.
Here are their official descriptions:
- Deluxe Edition includes the Game and the Deluxe pack of digital customization items.
- Gold Edition includes the Game, the Deluxe pack of digital customization items and the Season Pass.
- Players can pre-order the Collector’s Edition – with either the Standard, Deluxe or Gold Edition of Watch Dogs 2 – on the Uplay shop and receive the exclusive Wrench Junior robot, a motorized and endearing companion, controlled by an app available on smartphones or tablets.
Watch Dogs 2 launches on November 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. As rumored, the game is set in San Francisco (the 2014 original took place in Chicago), and stars a new protagonist named Marcus Holloway, an African-American from across the Bay in Oakland.
