The lights are on
Ubisoft is giving us a new look at how players will interact in Watch Dogs. In a new nine minute gameplay video, we see one-on-one player-versus-player hacking, interaction with the mobile app, and team-based competitive play.
The one-on-one and mobile app races are familiar. We previewed them back at Gamescom. The former allows you to invade another player’s game to earn notoriety. The latter allows someone with the tablet companion app to take challenge console and PC players to a race.
The new mode features two teams in a fight to capture and decrypt a file. Data can be stolen by being in close proximity, so teams will need to stay on the move in order to succeed. All of the multiplayer modes award points toward new skills.
Watch Dogs will be out on May 27 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. A Wii U version will be released later. You can read more in a recent hands-on preview.
