Up to eight players will be able to roam freely through the multiplayer mode of Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, creative director Jonathan Morin confirmed in a tweet.

Following the announcement yesterday morning confirming that the open-world hacking title will finally be making its way to eager gamers come May 27th, Morin responded to a question on Twitter about how many players the multiplayer component would support.

Morin didn't elaborate on the somewhat random confirmation, and further details on what game modes will be available in the open-world multiplayer portion have yet to be revealed. Hopefully we'll be hearing more shortly when Ubisoft Montreal hosts a live Q&A via Twitch at 6AM AEST tomorrow, during which developers will answer questions about the game.

Watch Dogs will be available on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One come May 27th. A Wii U version is slated to launch at a later date and has been delayed to give the team additional development time. If you happen to miss the news yesterday, you can find the recent story trailer below giving a glimpse at some new gameplay.

I think you mean May 27th for the release date, not April 27th.

In a few years time when we're playing 4 player MP games, you'll remember back to these golden times of 8 players.

Yeah no Titanfall for me either. I don't trust anything that's earned over 50 awards before the beta came out.

"Leaked" this, and "leaked" that. Yeah yeah.

If you actually played it, you'd know there are reasons, but I know the internet isn't a place for educated arguments so by all means, continue.

Anyway, seeing as this is actually a thread about Watch Dogs, lets talk about Watch Dogs. Isn't the multiplayer basically just the single player, but you get other people in your game messing with your hacks and stuff? If thats the case, a cap of 8 people is probably a good idea, or it would just get to the point where its chaos and you can't actually play the game anymore. I'll probably be turning it off anyway, while conceptually I like the idea of the hacker vs hacker stuff, it'd probably just piss me off when I'm trying to play through the game and people are continually trying to grief me.

Yeh i agree, I guess its like dark souls, it can turn chaotic. I think i will stick to SP on WD.

The number of players is kind of moot really.

I don't know what the limit of players is in GTA V but that seems pretty well balanced out playing that online.

I'm more interested in what you can 'do' with those other 7 players... co-op hiests?
Does it /actually/ play like the SP game 'with extra players'?

Will it be buggy as f*** and broken on launch?
Will there be any product support post launch?


Only time will tell.
