Watch Dogs hands-on – hacker magic, vigilante action and multiplayer invasions
Aiden flees the police, fights crime and falls victim to cyberterrorism, all in one day.
Watch Dogs’ hacking mechanic is designed to sit on top of all the traditional activities of an open-world game. However, as I begin my section of the game, I can’t hack a thing. I’m locked out until I take over the local security hub, effectively “conquering” the area. The first step is to steal a car and hit the hub. A piece of cake? Somehow I doubt it.
