Watch Dogs Punishes You For Going 'Offline'

    The world of Watch Dogs has been likened to Grand Theft Auto mainly because they are both open world action adventure games, the thing that separates the two games is that the main character of Ubisofts upcoming game is a hacker vigilante that has the ability to hack into the network, traffic lights, vehicles and even other players! But being that players are able to hack each other also has a downside according to images we found over at Spawnfirst today.
    It would seem as though Ubisoft will be dishing out resets on your Notoriety and also your notoriety skills if you disconnect from your online connection.

    As you can see from the image it clearly states " By disabling Online Invasions you will not be available for other players to invade, but you will also not be able to participate in Online Hacking and Tailing. Your Notoriety will be reset to 0 and any Notoriety Skills you have unlocked will be lost.

    Do you want to disable Online Invasions?"

    When Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would need an always online connection it was met with uproar from the gaming community , and yet we are seeing more and more games insist that you stay connected to the internet during gameplay.

    So what does this mean for you, has it changed your opinion of the game or do you feel its fair that you have to remain online or get reset to zero?

    Let us know your thoughts below.
