Preview: The Watch Dogs 2 April update: free PvP and porn you pay for

watch dogs 2 no compromise

There are moments which really crystallise what makes games different as a medium. Piloting a tentacled sex robot — one which made erotic moaning noises whenever it bumped into a wall — was, for me, one of them. Interpret this how you will. 

The April update for Watch Dogs 2 is one of two halves. The first, the free update, is really the meatier of the two: the in-game races are now playable in multiplayer; there are new clothes (including a jumper with a cat on it); there’s a paintball gun you can use to shoot people and/or draw a knob on the floor; there’s a big new 2v2 PvP mode. The second half, No Compromise, is mostly a new story mission called The Moscow Gambit, which is about porn. I’m sure there’s another joke to be made about meat here, but we’re better than that.

I played the starting mission for The Moscow Gambit, which took about 15 minutes (the full thing will be about an hour). In it Marcus ends up piggy-backing the camera network in a porn studio. There are several movies being shot, although they’re having read-throughs and blocking shots rather than in full swing (a complex swing, with many straps). DedSec have been provoked by the Russian behind it all, who has a last name that 50/50 you’ll be able to guess without me telling you. The whole thing did make me snicker, but not in a knowing, sophisticated way. This DLC will not pair well with cheese and wine. Given the subject matter, though, there’s still room for the mission to veer into some dark topics that need careful handling. But given the existence of a tentacled sex robot it seems unlikely.
