Ubisoft releases a new Watch Dogs 2 performance update

 
A new performance enhancing update has been released for Watch Dogs 2, offering some extra performance optimisations and settings as well as Dualshock 4 controller support on PC. 
 
This new update will reduce the game’s memory usage, which will improve the performance of PCs with lower amounts of RAM and reduce the performance impact of Screenspace reflections and adds Medium and High options for the effect.  
 
Ubisoft has also reduced the magazine size of the YourBoySergeNerf sniper rifle from 6 to 1, which should satisfy the members of the multiplayer community who think this weapon is “overpowered”.
