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.
