Watch Dogs Multiplayer Features Decryption Mode and Free Roam

By   /   Apr 25, 2014

With just a month to go before release, Ubisoft has today revealed more information regarding the multiplayer mode of Watch Dogs.

Along with a traditional Team Deathmatch mode featuring support for up to eight players, there will also be a PvP Online Decryption mode where two teams compete to track down and obtain data files.

As revealed earlier, players playing the single-player mode will be able to seamlessly transition into multiplayer matches. Using the game’s hacking skills, players can change the environment to surprise and disrupt enemy players. For example fences can be hacked to box players in, doors can be opened for quick escapes, grenades can be defused remotely, cameras can be disabled or hacked, along with many other electronics options.

Furthermore, Watch Dogs will be featuring a Tablet vs Console mode where a player controlling a helicopter with a tablet has to keep the console opponent in view. Points are gained based on how long the enemy is kept in view and these can be then spent on hacking obstacles in the environment. On the other hand the console player has to complete the race course.

Watch Dogs was initially being targeted as a launch title for the next-gen consoles but was ultimately delayed. Ubisoft wanted extra time to polish off the existing content, as well as include plenty of new features.

This year the game was pointed out my users to have been toned down visually when compared to the initial announcement at E3 2013. While Ubisoft has continuously spoken against this assumption, we’ll know for sure when the game releases on May 27, 2014 for the PlayStaiton 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. A release date for the Wii U is still pending.
