Ubisoft’s uPlay Service Hacked, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon Leaked
Ubisoft is a developer that many gamers have been calling the best in the business but it seems that even the uPlay servers can get hacked. I have been a huge supporter of Ubisoft from the very first time I played the original Assassin’s Creed, which explains why I hadn’t heard about the hack until reviewing my daily addiction of gaming news. It seems that there are those out there using torrents to get their hands on the not yet released DLC for Ubisoft’s newest title, Far Cry 3. I understand that gamers do not want to pay for their games, but this is one of those scenarios where I believe they got what was coming to them by Ubisoft trying to stop this dead in its tracks.
Far Cry 3 is still being called one of the best shooters of 2013 and many gamers have just been replaying the game or going for that one hundred percent map completion. However, with the upcoming of their new DLC, many gamers are trying to dip their hands in to the cookie jar and a hacker from Russia seems to have attached a code to the uPlay servers that tricks itself in to thinking that the owner of that uPlay account is the owner of the game of choice, even content that is not yet released, but is posted on their servers. I guess I’m not one to judge because my first thought was ‘I have got to get my hands on that code’, but I would never steal from one of my favorite developers and I gladly pay for my services from Ubisoft so they can provide even more for me.
With a lot of titles coming out this year, you have to wonder if many gamers think this hacker is there hero, or if they want to shun him for stealing from that amazing developer that we all love so much.
