Watch Dogs is a brilliant game topped with a unique and enjoyable spin to online gaming. Ubisoft knows what it takes to make a great online experience with previous games like Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell and Assassins Creed all boasting enjoyable online play.
In this video we’ll look at online hacking which involves the player jumping into another player’s game with the aim of hacking them till the install bar reaches 100%. The other player is completely unaware somebody has joined their game until the hack has been initiated so it’s important to plan where you’re going to hide and blend in with the AI characters to avoid being spotted.
There’s an area that the player must stay in while hacking which also aides the hackee by narrowing down where the hacker’s hiding with the radius getting smaller at each 25% interval.
To both players, their character looks like Aiden, while the oppenent looks like any NPC off the street making it easier to blend in and escape. View the video below to see highlights from us playing this unique game mode and don’t forget to check out our Onine Tailing video as well.
