Now Playing: Watch Dogs 2 - Launch Trailer

With about a week go to before Watch Dogs 2's release on November 15, Ubisoft today put out the open-world game's launch trailer.

The video sets up the hacker-centric story and shows off the game's depiction of San Francisco. You play as Marcus Holloway, an expert hacker, who works on behalf on the hacking collective Dedsec. The story follows Holloway's journey towards uncovering corporate corruption.

Watch Dogs 2 comes out on November 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, before arriving for PC on November 29. Ubisoft said the two weeks of extra development time for the PC version affords the studio the opportunity to add more polish and ensure the game runs well on a range of hardware. You can see the game's PC specs and graphics features here.

Last week, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said preorders for Watch Dogs 2 were lower than what the company wanted, though management also pointed out that preorder numbers may not be as important as they used to be. "The preorders are not as high as we thought they could be but we feel like the experience is a fantastic experience so we feel it can do extremely well," he said.
