Mindjack Multiplayer Trailer Hacks Into Our Brain
Written By
View author's profile

We're assuming that you'll be able to switch off Mindjack's so-called 'instant multiplayer' or playing through single-player could be a bit of a grind. Essentially, instant multiplayer seems to mean that a single-player game can seamlessly transform into a game of multiplayer if you're invaded by a rival hacker.

This means that an opposing team of red digital wanderer clouds can begin jacking into the brains of anyone in the area and start a battle between red and blue coloured hackers. Meanwhile, the white host wanderer is able to drift around creating 'mindslaves', which turns targets into AI-controlled allies.

It's certainly an interesting concept and the idea of a seamlessly integrated single-player and multiplayer experience could work in Mindjack's favour. But as ever, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and all that. We'll reserve judgement until January 21st, 2011 when Mindjack hacks into consoles. Check out the new multiplayer trailer for more.

#1 Is that your opinion as a fan or was poor Will hacked?

I'm assuming fan as I've never seen that on this site before.

Nope, not impressed. I think the concept is a good one, but from the looks of the trailer they aren't going to pull it off. It'll be yet another middle of the road title that collapsed under its own potential.

For shame.

The video says the host gets to choose who gets to hack there game but if this feature isn't controllable i think I'll just play while not signed into xbox live

It says the host can choose if other players can hack into there game.

I wasnt that intrested in this game, Been skipping through each video, but this one actualy made it look... Pretty cool, I might check it out, not a Day 1 buy incase its a big fuck up. But maybe worth looking into.

That sounds like the worst concept to be included in a game. Ever. What were they thinking?

Why would i want to play a game where anyone can "hack" into my single player campaign and fuck with my game?. I would assume there is a open or closed selection when playing but even so the game just looks bad.

If you were listening he said the host could enable or disable that feature.

Is it just me, or does the person on the game picture look like Wesker?
