‘Watch Dogs’ multiplayer is optional for those who want to play alone

Ubisoft’s open-world hacking title, Watch Dogs, will allow fans to infiltrate other players’ game worlds in a similar fashion to what was seen inside Dark Souls. However, as reported by CVG on Monday, the developer has confirmed that all online features are completely optional and can be turned off at any point to appease those who want a single-player only experience as well as gamers fearful that this style of drop-in multiplayer might lead to harassment

Also to help avoid instances of players simply causing grief to each other and ruining the gameplay experience of others, even if the multiplayer system is left on, gamers won’t be able to immediately attack a player after joining their game session. Instead, there will be a brief period where damage can’t be dealt to other players after someone freshly joins a game.

After an initial delay, Watch Dogs has now been confirmed to release on May 27 for the Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Meanwhile, the Wii U version of the game doesn’t currently have a release date and is scheduled to release at a later time.
