Watch Dogs Adds Friend Hacking Abilities
Posted by Ken Barnes
A title update for Ubisoft's Watch Dogs has gone live, which will enable the ability to hack your friends.
Before now, if you were playing Online Tailing or Online Hacking missions, you would be thrown together with a random stranger, but now you'll be able to choose a friend and jump into their game - all without them knowing. Don't worry, though. If your friends list contains the sort of people that will do nothing but grief you 24/7, you can turn the ability off.
Also amended are drinking games, which have been made a tad easier. Also, a new bad player algorithm is in place that will put players who disconnect frequently up against each other, rather than allowing them to cause issues for players who aren't total idiots.
Good work, indeed.
