The first Watchdogs disappointed players when it was released in 2014. It was supposed to narrate the story of a hacktivist taking on corrupt officials, but fell short of its potential. The new gameplay trailer shown at E3, has a new protagonist and features several ways to finish almost any mission. Missions are also available through the city and you can pick and choose what you want to do, and how you take the story forward. The concept is still the same but this time, the developers Ubisoft seem to have gotten their act together with the gameplay.
