Glad to see you can disable if you would like too. Would be frustrating if simply trying to finish a quest line and people keep hacking your game simply to mess with you.

I wonder how does the slow downs and blacks outs work online.Maybe some features get disabled online like GTA

If it's anything like dark souls, I'm leaving it on.

They need better implementation of how invasions work since it showed how easy it is to identify the hacker by shooting and how useless of a threat the cops were. It needs to be more difficult like dealing with red phantoms while worrying about normal enemies that could also easily kill you.

I wish Aiden Pierce or whoever was just a silent character so we could fully customize him in our game.

not really too interested in the multiplayer, i think the solo campaign is where the game wills shine.
UbiquitousClam  +   247d ago
I kinda agree, I'm looking forward to the competitive modes and the free roaming in multiplayer. But having some random person invade my game whilst I'm doing campaign mission just sounds annoying.
lameguy  +   247d ago
I'm still in a 'wait and see' mode with Destiny because of this type of experience.
USEYOURFIST  +   247d ago
They can't invade whilst your on a mission
TheTowelBoy  +   247d ago
I agree to a point but after you beat the game I'm sure this will extend your playtime with it.
lonelyplayer  +   247d ago
This is just online single player
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   247d ago
I'm turning that shit off. I'm not into multiplayer gaming anymore.
Farsendor1  +   247d ago
wow this game does have team death match its in the article.
DJustinUNCHAIND  +   247d ago
All of my friends are on XBL, which is why I'll be getting this on X1.
tethered  +   247d ago
Ok. good for you.

On topic now.....
I cant wait to get my hands on this game. Sounds really fun! I too am glad I can disable it if I want to play it by myself.
Ashunderfire86  +   247d ago
Why did you get 5 disagree for saying what console you are getting Watchdogs for? I got a PS4, but I am not a crazy fanboy like these guys disagreeing with anything X1.
tethered  +   247d ago
It was a trolling comment because nobody asked what console he is getting it on because nobody cares what console he is getting it on. His response had nothing to do with the article. And who really cares about his friends list?
goldwyncq  +   247d ago
^ There was no trolling involved in that comment, unless of course you're an over sensitive fanboy who would take offense at anything positive involving X1.
tethered  +   247d ago
@ goldwyncq -

I really hope the XBox One does well this gen. It drives competition as every has seen.

As it stands, his original statement had absolutely nothing to do with the article. Had he said something about the article and then said what he said, I wouldn't have had a problem with it.

Get over it...........
CapellPro85  +   246d ago
I think the comment was about the article. The article is about multiplayer. The guy was saying its best for him online wise if he got the game on the console his mates are getting for multiplayer purposes.

Its just a comment no need for trolling accusations

Interesting! very good feature. It's like switching from SP, to MP. Nice!

Lol my hype for this game was once diminished. Good thing they didn't stop showing it, I'm back on the train.
Clover904  +   247d ago
Right there with you. Was hyped when Ubi first showers it, grew bored of it, and now I'm excited again. Love the variety, especially with aliens, robot spider, and zombies (might be making up the zombies). The seamless multiplayer sound great. Love how you're always Aiden. Think i might pick this one digitally, especially with 100+ hours for full completion. Hope Sony has pre-downloads ready by late May.
KonsoruMasuta  +   247d ago
I hope it's not as bad as Resident Evil 6's player invasion where other players played as monsters.
matrixman92  +   247d ago
It is a pretty cool concept, but I will probably end up turning it off...its a trolls paradise. "oh my friend is about to finish an important part...might as well join his game several times in a row and mess with him"
Clover904  +   247d ago
“The way it’s designed is to make sure you don’t get invaded all the time,”

Sounds like the dev team already thought of that.
mike32UK  +   246d ago
I'm pretty sure that no one can invade you during missions
Ittoryu  +   247d ago
Ill decide what the best way for ME to experience a game I purchase is not the dev. So yes the invasion option will be turned off.
Longshot28  +   247d ago
I honestly don't see why you'd turn it off. What's funny is, the verbal beating Infamous took cause there was no MP yet everyone will opt out of this..

Sorry I accidentally pressed disagree but I absolutely agree with what you are saying! So silly
Lukas_Japonicus  +   246d ago
The first thing i will be doing is turning the MP feature OFF. I want a singleplayer experience. I don't want strangers in my game, that isn't my idea of fun.

Different strokes for different folks i guess.
brainfart  +   247d ago
I will disable multiplayer until I learn how to play dont want some player taking advantage of my poor play, but once I do its on beaches.lol gettting this on pc cant wait!!
thunderbear  +   247d ago
Definitely will be playing it with it turned off. Then when I am ready for team multiplayer I'll do that.
goldwyncq  +   247d ago
No thanks. I don't like the idea of random strangers trying to murder me for no reason.
MilkMan  +   246d ago
HAHAHA, nope!
Shouldn't have spent all that time on this Ubi...I don't like uninvited dudes in my game.
Hope you got plan B...you know where you got actual SP content in the works and you weren't depending on others invading my game for sh!ts and giggles and "infinite" replayability.
aLiEnViSiToR  +   246d ago
SP only for me but its great that gamers have a choice.
