Ubi Soft has confirmed that a group of players found a way to hack the servers of its online RPG Shadowbane. The culprits managed to find a way to teleport non-player characters into cities, resulting in the deaths of many player characters and the subsequent shutdown of the service to rectify the issue. Apparently, Ubi is working with law enforcement to try and track down and prosecute those responsible for the disturbance, but with this lovely weather and all we expect they were only trying to do their friends a favour.
