Watch Dogs 2 New DLC Has a Ransomware Storyline

This may be the first time I’ve seen ransomware in a video game. It’s kind of telling as to how mainstream it’s becoming. I can’t speak for the game as I’ve never played it, but the premise of a ransomware fueled story mission is interesting. For those that do play,  it’s supposed to be available March 23rd. Let me know how it is.
