You can now hack your friends online in Watch Dogs

Watch Dogs

A new patch has implemented some bug fixes and new features to Ubisoft's hacking extravaganza.

A new patch for Ubisoft's Watch Dogs will now allow you to hack your friends without them knowing.

Before this patch was issued you could only hack random players you were paired with via the Hacking and Online Tailing missions. But now you can choose a friend, and enter their game to troll them to your heart's content.

This feature can be disabled in the settings menu, however, should you wish for an annoyance-free experience.

Other fixes and features include tweaks to the drinking games, fixes for poker and missing person investigations, and players who often disconnect from multiplayer matches will be paired with players of similar standing. The full patch notes can be view here. Thanks, Eurogamer.
