Watch Dogs 2 – Win a Trip to Montreal and Meet the Development Team

Watch Dogs 2 showcases the talents of a fictional hacker named Marcus Holloway, but if you’re a student and 18 years of age or older, you can use your own hacking skills (or an interest in hacking) to score a copy of the game or a very real trip to Montreal where you’ll meet members of the Watch Dogs 2 development team. How? Ubisoft and Major League Hacking teamed up to create a special set of three Capture the Flag hacking challenges – Miss Marple, Monte Cristo, and Prince of Denmark – designed to test your knowledge of security vulnerabilities . Don’t worry if you’re not quite on Marcus’ level. You’ll have time to research the info you need in order to progress in any of the three challenges, but don’t take too long. Only the quickest hackers on the individual leaderboards will have a shot at earning prizes.

Students attending the actual MLH hackathon events have a shot at winning a copy of Watch Dogs 2 by earning the fastest times on the individual challenges as designated at that specific event. Meanwhile, the grand prize will be awarded to any qualified student that enters (either at a hackathon or online) and earns the fastest time across all three challenges.

Before you go and register at the MLH site, you should check out the full set of official rules to make sure you are eligible to enter and win the prizes. Watch Dogs 2 is scheduled for release on November 15 for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version will be available November 29. For more information, check out our previous coverage:
