Watch Dogs Legion

Watch Dogs: Legion is out today and if you haven’t read our official review, it’s quite the large game but also has its share of issues. Ubisoft has outlined fixes for a number of them, including improvements to performance. While the hotfix is currently live on Xbox One and PS4, PC players will have to wait till tomorrow for the same.

In terms of performance improvements, overall gameplay and driving should be smoother on PS4. Frame rate drops that can happen when walking through checkpoints have also been fixed along with the frame rate performance while driving. For PC players, frame rates have been improved on Nvidia RTX GPUs and a freeze that could occur when switching controllers has also been fixed. Those seeing crashes on PC are also advised to update their OS to 1903 or 1909 at minimum.

Expect more hotfixes in the coming days and perhaps even a major patch in the first month, especially with next-gen console releases in November and  Watch Dogs Online launching in December. Watch Dogs: Legion will be available for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia in the meantime. Stay tuned for more details and check out the full hotfix notes below.
