Watch Dogs 'online interact option' can be switched off


Watch Dogs will allow other players to enter your world, allowing them to steal any cash you may have earned while playing. If this sounds like a great idea to you, then brilliant, but if not, you can turn it off.



Speaking with Polygon, lead game designer Danny Belanger said, “All the online activities are just part of the menu. They’re a choice. But if someone is not into that …. they can totally turn it off.

“There’s also something important called the shield. If someone comes into your game, they can’t come in right after so you can’t be spammed in that way — unless you become aggressive and you start going into other people’s games,” Belanger said. “Then you really become available. But it’s just a player choice in the end.”

What do you think of players having the option to enter your game and steal your cash? Would you enjoy chasing them down and killing them before they got the chance, or would you rather have the option off by default? 

Let us know what you think.

Stealing something from an other franchise? Seems oddly fitting. Kind of defeats the point if you can just turn it on with a menu, would have been better if you could do something in-game to stop people "Invading"

I think it would have to be off for me, I'm bad enough at games without having someone come and steal my hard earned. If there was a trophy associated I turn it on long enough to get it and then off again.

Absolutely normal thing. I think many people will first play through story without interference, then turn this on and try online functions...
