Watch_Dogs 2 Patch 1.05 Brings Back Seamless Multiplayer and Improves Stability

on November 22, 2016 5:41 PM

Today Ubisoft released patch 1.05 for Watch_Dogs 2 on consoles, bringing back the major feature that was deactivated at release, seamless multiplayer.

The patch, according to a message posted on reddit, also solves some crash issues and improves stability.

“We’re happy to share the good news that we brought the first phase of seamless multiplayer online at 8:00 a.m. PST / 11:00 a.m. EST / 5 p.m. CET for Playstation 4 and we anticipate that seamless multiplayer for Xbox One will be activated by early afternoon PST / evening EST / night CET.

This coincides with the release of Title Update 1.05, which also contains important crash fixes that improve stability. While the overall number of players affected by crashes isn’t high, those who are crashing are experiencing the problem repeatedly. With seamless multiplayer reactivated, you’ll be able to experience the following multiplayer features via the Multiplayer App:

  • Invite friends to co-op or search for new co-op partners
  • Hack into a rival hacker’s world
  • Find targets for Bounty Hunts or trigger a bounty on themselves

We’ll continue to monitor the online stability of the seamless multiplayer features and should everything continue to run smoothly, we’ll activate the final phase of seamless multiplayer, unlocking the following additional multiplayer features: Bounty mode without the use of the app (will occur seamlessly in-world), and encountering other players in the world to complete co-op missions and DedSec events with.

Thank you for your patience and support while we worked to implement the seamless multiplayer feature of the game. We will continue to provide periodic updates throughout this process. We’re looking forward to seeing some cool gameplay content from you in these multiplayer modes, so don’t forget to share!”

The further good news, is that the implementation of one of the major features promised for the game, also means that now times are mature for our review to be finally posted. You can expect to read it here on DualShockers really soon.

If you’re on PC, unfortunately you can’t yet take advantage of the feature, as the game won’t launch until November 29th, but you can still brag about some really spiffy visual effects revealed today.
