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".    

  

Ubisoft releases a new Watch Dogs 2 performance update  

 

Watch_Dogs 2 – PC Update 1.09 Changelog:

  • - [Performance] RAM Usage Optimization – This patch optimizes a system memory usage which improves the game’s performance on systems with low RAM amount.
  • - [Performance] Screenspace Reflections Optimization – This patch improves the overall performance of Screenspace Reflections and adds two new lower quality levels (Medium and High).
  • - San Francisco Fog – The algorithm of the San Francisco Fog (aka “Karl”) appearing is improved with this title update.
  • - Visual – The maximum value of the Pixel Density slider has been changed from 1.25 to 1.5 with this patch.
  • - Sound – We have added a Music Volume slider.
  • - Controller – Added support for the newer DualShock 4 controllers (ZCT2U models).
  • - YourBoySerge Nerf – This .50 Cal sniper rifle has been the subject of some debate in the community, and is considered to be overpowered in online play. In this patch, we’ve reduced the number of rounds in the magazine from 6 to 1, and we will continue to monitor and balance this beasty rifle.
  • - Fixed various minor issues with flickering.
  • - Fixed various minor issues with incorrect window modes behavior.
  • - Fixed various minor issues with the UI and text.

I have not played WD2 but if its anything like most of Ubisoft's Games at launch then good luck. WD1 was buggy as hell when that came out.

I wish that we could go back in time to the days when companies could NOT update or relase a fix for their un finished games. So every company had to release the game as it was, and then you would see who were the good producer of games.

I am sure Ubisoft would be the LJN of the modern era..... famed for their crappy games.Quote

I agree. I really enjoy some of Ubisoft's IP's (yes, I like Assassin's Creed; sue me) but I just never buy them at release due to the technical difficulties that come along with them. I've only just got Unity and paid less than a tenner; the game is actually pretty damn good for that price.

There's very few games I consider buying at launch these days, and I never pre-order anymore; Horizon 3 will probably be the last one I buy at launch. I'm stoked for mass Effect Andromeda but I doubt I'll get it at release; I'll wait for the first sale.Quote

I wish Sony would just release an actual DS4 driver, so we could take advantage of all the features easily, rather than on a game by game basis, and missing accelerometer/touchpad support.

Yes I know workaround programs exist. But that doesn't reduce the frustration that a PC driver would solve. I don't own a PS4, but I'd go out and buy a DS4 tomorrow for PC use, I just find it more comfy than the Xbox controllers.Quote
