Watch Dogs 2 Update 1.05 Today Turns Seamless Multiplayer Back On
With the release of Watch Dogs 2 update 1.05 earlier today, Ubisoft has announced that the “first phase” of seamless multiplayer feature is now back online on PlayStation 4, after being taken offline pre-launch due to issues. The seamless multiplayer should come to Xbox One this afternoon (PST).
The first phase of seamless multiplayer lets you do the following via the Multiplayer App: Invite friends to co-op or search for new co-op partners, hack into a rival hacker’s world, and find targets for Bounty Hunts or trigger a bounty on themselves. If everything runs smoothly, they’ll activate the final phase of seamless multiplayer soon, unlocking these 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,” Ubisoft said. “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!”
Update 1.05 also includes important crash fixes that improve stability. Ubisoft adds, “While the overall number of players affected by crashes isn’t high, those who are crashing are experiencing the problem repeatedly.”
An upcoming patch will fix the TV size issue, but Ubisoft doesn’t have a date for it yet.
