Ubisoft has reported that last Saturday, Dedsec successfully infiltrated Michael G. Aronson’s bank account. Following the hack, an actual ATM was unlocked and dispensed Aronson’s cash to the public at an unspecified location somewhere in Canada.
Watch Dogs Live gives players the opportunity to become Canada’s ultimate hacker. Using geo-location, Watch_Dogs Live players are able to move through their own Canadian city where they compete to gain control of vulnerable sites. As players gain experience and level up to outwit other hackers, they are given access to more sites to climb the leaderboard. Additionally, there are four special missions where group hacking unleashes events in the real world, allowing players to experience a real-life Watch Dogs inspired scenario prior to the game’s release.
