GC: Wanna Be Aiden Pearce? There’s An App For That!
Ubisoft are back with more Watch Dogs goodies and this time we get an app as well as an interesting development on their WeAreData site. The app in question is called h_ide and is already available absolutely free on the iOS & Android stores. H_ide has a load of interesting features that will allow users to "disappear from the network" (whilst ironically asking for facebook connectivity). To quote the press release, users can:
- [Send] Anonymous voice messages
- [Send] Encrypted text messages
- Encrypt pictures
- Record a message (up to 20 seconds)
- Choose a filter to modulate your voice
- Send it to your friend
- Your friend will receive a link to listen to your message
- Share content on social networks or send directly as SMS
Check out the trailer above.
The same press release also announces a hacker hunt even, currently underway on the WeAreDate website. Through the site Ubisoft is challenging gamers to track down 5 hackers that have been let loose in London. Clues will be given as to their whereabouts over the next 5 days. You can guess where they are and, if you're right, you'll be able to see the hackers' tweets and instagrams on the WeAreData site. It's up to you to uncover the hidden messages within and if you do you'll be able to unlock a secret website AND be in with a chance of winning your own PlayStation 4, a collector's edition of Watch Dogs and much more. Once you've cracked the code, you'll need to enter it here (http://wearedata.watchdogs.com/) to get access to the secret site.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got some hackers to track down.
