Ubisoft doesn’t want you to ‘grind to earn money’ in ‘Watch Dogs’

Money may be the root of all evil but it’s all forms the basis for getting bigger guns in Ubisoft’s upcoming “Watch Dogs.” Creative Director Jonathan Morin talked with Examiner about how the open-world action game’s economy works and how the development team tried to take some of the grind out.

I heard from a friend it was super easy to hack people then take their money out of an ATM to rack up $ very quickly. ;)

Yep, that's what I found in the hands-on I had a month ago. Money is easy to get :)

This is Ubisoft we're talking about. If you have played ANY of the Assassin's Creed games that have an economy system built-in, money becomes no object about a third of the way into the game. Really it becomes a personal challenge to see how high you can get your "bank" before you finish everything in the game.

So basically ALL your effort in game can be stolen from you within minutes and everything you worked for over 2 weeks is just gone ?

YEAAAAA that sounds fun./s

No idea if other players can do that, they were NPCs. + You can turn off other players invading.

I would still like a sense of achievement when I earn money!

Yeah me too!

But if you played a character who is a white collar worker and goes to meetings and write reports daily, would that give you a sense of achievement?

Well that would be me? But I don't want to play me when I get home, my work life is boring enough I dont need to do the same thing at home on a video game console!!

I think they have taken care of this. If you steal a lot of money from people's bank accounts, you lose a lot of rep after a while, and it becomes more frustrating and harder to play.

I will not farm anything, only when I absolutely need the money I would steal from a rich pig.
