New Watch Dogs Patch Work
According to Ubisoft’s official blog a new patch for Watch Dogs will be released today across all platforms. According to the official forums the Watch Dogs patch will be rolling out to PS4 and PS3 first and coming to the PC and Xbox One and Xbox 360 within the next week. This patch will also be available in Asia on August 26th. While this is not a major patch, it is fixing a number of community complaints as well as addressing some minor bugs that have been plaguing the game since launch. The Watch Dogs patch is of course a free download and is available for download now in the Playstation Store.
As listed below in the patch notes, new features have been added to the single-player portion of the game. A New Replay Option has been added so after completing the main story line part of the campaign you now have the option to reset previously completed “Convoy” and “Gang Hideout” missions. Since the story line is the shortest part of Watch Dogs this is a quality update for players that are running thin on things to do lately in game and are waiting for the next major content dlc. Also, based off community feedback, the “Drinking Games” were tightened up for a better experience and a few bugs were fixed in “Poker” and “Missing Persons Investigations” as well.
Multi-player has some features added to improve the overall Watch Dogs experience. Online play has always had a problem with players disconnecting before the end of the match instead of taking the loss. Different solutions to this issue have been tried by many studios with various degrees of success over the years, however the problem still persists. Ubisoft has come up with an interesting solution for punishing these players. After downloading the Watch Dogs patch, players who are found disconnecting from multi-player matches will only be paired with other players exhibiting the same behavior. Apparently Ubisoft’s approach to this problem is to give them a taste of their own medicine.
Other multi-player changes include fixing a bug with the CTOS mobile app. Console and PC gamers were being removed from the multi-player game after a mobile player would disconnect from the match. This issue has been fixed and now the console or PC gamer will be able to play until the conclusion of the match and receive their full amount of earned points regardless of the mobile user’s connection status. Hacking your friends also includes the ability to select your available friends using the grid and hack or tail them in secret. So check your six hackers because your friends are going to be gunning for you!
