I'm more concerned about removing any lethal weaponry than playing as a femaleUbisoft and their fetish for female playable characters.
Dont get why they are not waiting for the new console gen to drop watch dogs 3
This is the exact reason why I am not able to believe this leak. The skateboard bit is like the cherry on top lolThis sounds really stupid. A counter-terror cyber security agent would not be running around the streets of London Mirror's Edge-style, fighting drug dealers and tagging walls.
I never played W2 but I remember some people commenting about the narrative dissonance between how the characters were presented in cutscenes and then seeing them shoot people like some highly trained soldier. So maybe this no guns thing can work, provided the combat is still fun.
Anyway, if this is true hopefully the main character is like Faith and not some snassy "2 cool 4 u" type of character (though between the Skateboard and graffiti it sounds like she totally will)
I hated the first Watch Dogs and didnt care about WD2 but this may be actually good. There are thousands of open world games with guns and knifes, at least they are trying something different.
