TA Playlist game for June 2020 announced

By The TA Playlist Team,
As you are all soon to be returning from a galaxy far, far away after playing the TA Playlist game for May, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, it's time to see what has been chosen for next month by you lovely people! For June, join the TA Playlist in hacking their way through Watch_Dogs.

As you can see from the poll below, first and second were pretty close, and this makes Control the runner-up in three separate playlists!

Created by Ubisoft Montreal, and released back in 2014, Watch Dogs (or WATCH_DOGS, if you want the stylisation) is an open-world game where everything can be hacked. Set in a fictionalised version of Chicago, you play as Aiden Pearce, a hacker in search of revenge after his niece is killed.
Use your phone to control traffic, infiltrate security systems, jam calls for backup and empty the bank accounts of random civilians. You also get to find out some little details of everyone's private life and maybe reconsider your own digital security while you're at it!

Watch Dogs is pretty well received, and holds a score of 3.78/5.00 here on TA, with just under 220,000 of you with it on your tag!

This adventure into digital security takes an estimated 40-50 hours, and there's also a Watch_Dogs walkthrough here on site to help guide you through everything.

Here are the full results of the poll:

The TA Playlist is a monthly community event. Everyone votes on which of four games to play, and then we all play through it in the following month. There's a dedicated hub to discuss everything about the game, from story beats to gameplay tips – and of course, you can track your achievement progress during the month as well. TA Playlist was created by Mark Delaney and is now run by Miles, Nici and Chewie.
