Watch Dogs 2’s Zodiac Killer Mission Preview is Here
The sequel to the Chicago-based Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2, brings an all new adventure to sunny San Francisco where the player will assume the identity of expert hacker: Marcus Holloway.
Holloway embarks on an intricate journey to wipe out the ctOS 2.0 surveillance system and the mastermind behind it: Blume. That’s not the only threat the player will face. In an all new mission announced for the November release, Holloway will face down a threat of a different flavour: the renowned Zodiac Killer – or, at least a killer emulating the Zodiac’s MO. Ubisoft had this to say about the mission:
A killer is staging the bodies of his victims all over Oakland like the infamous Zodiac Killer of the Sixties, and he’s taunting the police and news outlets with coded messages.
The original Zodiac Killer was a huge story that swept up the 60s in news frenzy and continues to be a baffling mystery with an identity that has yet to be revealed. His reign of terror spanned across the California Bay area from 1968 to 1969. 5 confirmed murders were successfully linked to the infamous killer but he himself claimed to kill over 37. He was rhythmic is his moves and clever with his paper trail that he left for the authorities including an intricate code made up of symbols to replicate the alphabet. You can read all about him here.
To hunt for the Zodiac Killer yourself, PS4 Watch Dog 2 is available for pre-order and will be available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One November 15th, and then later on PC November 29th. The Zodiac Killer mission is currently a pre-order bonus exclusive.
