Learn to hack the world in Phreaked Out, Watch Dogs’ latest promo tie-in
Ubisoft is pulling out all the stops for Watch Dogs’ marketing campaign. With two videos already floating around—one demonstrating how funny it is to trick people into believing they’re all-powerful hackers, and the other a parkour-infused recreation of Aiden’s Chicago escapades—they’ve now teamed up with YouTube channel Motherboard to create Phreaked Out.
A three-part series focused on hacking, Phreaked Out aims to highlight the vulnerabilities in modern technological systems and show just how plausible the large-scale hacking seen in Watch Dogs actually is. A statement from Ubisoft describes the series as a collaborative effort “with today’s most talented security researchers and hackers to learn firsthand how to breach the most commonly used devices.”
