Ubisoft has been doing plenty of patching for Watch Dogs 2 following its launch, though it has largely revolved around reincorporating and smoothing out the rough edges of the game’s seamless multiplayer. However, the game’s next patch is where they start adding in some new features into the game, along with the usual tweaks.
The company said that “Now that we’ve patched most of the issues identified at launch, it’s time to start including the fun stuff. This patch is being made in preparation for the first DLC, the T-Bone Content Bundle, but also includes free content, balancing to multiplayer game modes (particularly Hacking Invasions), and lots of bug fixes. As we move forward, we’ll continue to introduce free content updates for everyone outside of DLC offerings and will continue to make tweaks to the online experience based on our data analysis and your feedback. Title Update 1.08 will be available later this week.”
As a side note, Ubisoft also mentions that they’ve “had a talk” with the policewoman in the game that constantly shouts “PULL OVER NOW!” at you. Thankfully, she won’t be repeating herself as frequently, which will make these parts of the game cause far fewer headaches.
As for the new features that will be added with this new patch, they are the following:
Replay Missions – We’ve added a functionality that lets you replay any mission that is part of a Main Operation. This will let you relive your favorite moments or experiment with different playstyles.
Hacker Level – Your new Hacker Level is now displayed as a stat in Marcus’ phone, based on followers acquired. You can see another player’s Hacker Level when you profile them, and this will allow you to compare yourself against your friends.
Enemy Weapons – DedSec picked up blueprints for enemy weapons and now they’re all available to print from the 3D Printer – for a fee.
Select Difficulty Level – The first time you start a new game, you’ll be prompted to choose a difficulty level. As a reminder, you can change the difficulty level at any time in the Game Options app.
There’s also plenty of bug fixes and gameplay balancing that will be done with this patch, and you can check out the specifics of all that by clicking right here.
Watch Dogs 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game is set to be getting the first part of its season pass with the T-Bone content bundle later this month, which you can learn more about by clicking right here.
