With his ability, Aiden will be able to tap and access the city?s omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control systems such as traffic lights or public transportation to stop a chase, and more. You (Aiden Pearce) will use the city of Chicago as your ultimate weapon and exact your own style of revenge.
Meanwhile, if gamers who are waiting for so long for the launch of the new upcoming Watch Dogs game were pleased, others are not as there are players who are now experiencing issues including a login problem in the PC version (that Ubisoft is aware of).
Reports said that the official Watch Dogs Twitter account acknowledged the issue, “We are experiencing issues with the authentication services. Players may experience long delays when trying to login in-game.”
Moreover, complaints about the inability to connect to Uplay are getting bigger as players are actually prevented from playing the game.
To address the issues, Ubisoft has issued a statement that reads, “Dear fans, with the release of Watch Dogs we are seeing an exceptional increase of activity. While we have taken many measures to limit the impact to our servers, they are not responding as fast as usual. Rest assured our team is monitoring closely our servers and taking every measure so that our services remain up. Thank you for your patience.”
