Ubisoft seems to like bringing real life serial killers into their videogames. First, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate had a Jack the Ripper DLC and now Watch Dogs 2 will have a pre-order exclusive Zodiac Killer mission.
The Zodiac Killer became infamous for killing six in the San Francisco area about fifty years ago. He taunted the police and news outlets and was never captured. He famously used ciphers and riddles to get his messages across. Which, actually, makes a lot of sense for a mission in a game like Watch Dogs 2. But you only get access if you pre-order the game from participating retailers.
So check out the trailer above, get to pre-ordering Watch Dogs 2 if you’re interested and do yourself a favor and check out Zodiac starring Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Jake Gyllenhaul, which is such a criminally underrated film.
Watch Dogs 2 is scheduled for release on November 15th.
