Ubisoft wants to tell you all about how every bit of Watch Dogs 2 is better than the first game.

Ubisoft has released a new Watch Dogs 2 video that aims to reacquaint you with everything the game has to offer. The 20-minute playthrough goes over the broader strokes of the game’s mechanics, and introduces the different ways they’ll work in tandem.

This is the first free-roam demo we’ve seen. It’s directed, but it manages to show the many things you’ll be doing as you play the game, from hacking and stealth combat, to specific modes like multiplayer and the wide customisation options available.

We also get to see how some of the returning mechanics have improved since the first game, such as driving, world building and the way the game introduces missions and narrative.

It’s a very comprehensive video, and definitely serves the game much better than previous trailers. Particularly interesting is the driving part, where we learn that Ubisoft Reflections, developers of the Driver series, have reworked driving mechanics in the sequel.

Watch Dogs 2 is out November 15 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
