Watch_Dogs To Blend Singleplayer & Multiplayer Across Multiple Devices, But Can Be Played Offline

Dealspwn.com reports: "Watch_Dogs' mysterious multiplayer functionality is getting slightly clearer. A structured competitive mode has been briefly hinted at, but more excitingly, singleplayer sessions can start to bleed together while other players synchronously enter your version of Chicago via a companion app from anywhere in the world.

"Ambitious" might be a bit of an understatement, but don't worry, you can play offline." (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360)

"I’m not saying you’re forced [to play online]!" explains lead gameplay designer Danny Belanger. "If someone kicks out his network connection there’s still a game there. But what we really want to do is, if you are social or involved socially, you have more variety. It’s a bigger meal, it’s a bigger buffet, you have more choice. If you want to play a guy on your tablet from your living room, you guys are playing synchronously. You’re playing the game. That adds content and value for the players."

So we can play it offline.....I'm guessing that if were allowed to to play it offline there will be a feature in the games settings to allow people who have their online on to set the game to private so other people won't be able to enter your version of Chicago.

If this is true then <phew>

That is a huge relief. The online play seems really cool and I no doubt will enjoy it. But I prefer to play video games on my own. Even Journey and Dark Souls I played mainly by myself, but their online features were so good I played them also.

"But Can Be Played Offline" that part of the title gives me some relief as I am excited for this game but internet is not offered where I live and was concerned I may have missed this game

That's awesome news. I was worried that the game was going to be always-online. Glad it's not. Good job Ubi!

The benefits of always on... This is why I dont mind. Id exchange that for these type of game experiences any day.

Great news! Looking forward to offline & online play. This, Second Son, Knack & Killzone at Playstation 4 launch. *Faints*

Well then, this is unofficial confirmation that the next Xbox won't require an always on Internet connection.

Wasn't a employee wide leak of a memo stating that you can watch Blu Ray movies and play single player games offline a better unofficial confirmation of that? Actually most of the newer rumors all said that it wasn't always online.

Anyway, I'll probably play this game online to get the full experience, but I'm glad it isn't forced always online. That is the one thing that bugs me a bit about Destiny, it's forced online, no single player without it.

Looking to Watch Dogs and Destiny as being my big two launch titles.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

Seriously, I can't wait for this game.
