This Grand Theft Auto V mod adds in Watch_Dogs’ hacking

A better Watch_Dogs than Watch_Dogs

I really liked Watch_Dogs. Sure the graphics weren’t what we were shown at first, Aiden Pearce was an unlikable dick, and it wasn’t the most optimised thing in the world, but I still had a lot of fun hacking an entire city.

If you also had fun with the hacking elements and generally not much else, this Grand Theft Auto V mod is for you. Developed by JulioNIB, it introduces almost all of Watch_Dogs’ hacking mechanics: traffic lights, bollards, ATMs, phones, basically every bit of tech is yours to screw around with to cause the most carnage possible.

In some ways, this mod even gives you more control than you had in the original game, such as giving you the ability to remotely drive vehicles, or affect every car seen on a security camera. So much hacking, so little time.

I’m always amazed by the sort of things a stubborn enough modder can do, and this is definitely up there as being one of the most impressive mods I’ve ever seen. You can download it from JulioNIB’s website, or you can see a video of it in action up top.
