Watch Dogs is full of easter eggs pointing to other Ubisoft games, but did you know that one side mission tasks you with taking out Abstergo Entertainment CEO Olivier Garneau?
WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS ASSASSIN’S CREED 4: BLACK FLAG SPOILERS
Thanks Access the Animus.
Garneau must be eliminated as part of a Watch Dogs convoy takedown mission. The aim is to take him down non-lethally, but you could blow the git’s head off if you felt like it. The mission opens with Pearce intimidating him by hacking his phone and texting him, “Requiescat in Pace,” – a nod to Assassin’s Creed. This is also the mission’s name.
Once it kicks off, Pearce monologues that Garneau is involved in some shady genetic practices – hello Animus – and other such dealings. Once you take him out, you can use the phone profiler app to scan his body, revealing that he is being targeted by the Assassin brotherhood.
We last saw Garneau in Black Flag’s modern day sections, during which you can also unearth links to Watch Dogs, such as Abstergo backing the ctOS program and more.
Just last week we saw the first piece of Watch Dogs DLC release, which sees players fighting a army of cyborgs. Check it out through the link.
