Watch Dogs 2 PC system requirements - game delayed on PC

 
Watch Dogs 2 has been delayed on PC until November 29th, which is two weeks after the release of the console version. Ubisoft has promised to add additional features and polish to the PC version, including 4K support, an unlocked framerate as well as support for SLI and crossfire at launch.
 
Ubisoft also plans on implementing support for Multi-monitor setups as well as an FOV slider and higher resolution textures.  Below is a list of confirmed PC features, which will all be in the PC version of the game at launch. 
 
 
Improved Graphic Features
 
 
  • - Screen Space Reflections
  • - Headlight Shadows – Support for additional shadows from car headlights
  • - Extra Details Options – Increases the level of detail for all objects in the game, and adds more details to objects in the distance.

 

Improved Graphics Options

  • - FOV sliders
  • - Pixel Density sliders
  • - Sharpness sliders
  • - Ultra Textures pack available at launch
  • - Ambient Occlusion options: Ubisoft proprietary ambient occlusion techniques (SSBC and HMSSAO), HMSSAO
  • - Anti-aliasing options: TXAA, MSAA, Post Processing Anti-Aliasing options (SMAA and FXAA)

 

Improved Keyboard/Mouse controls

  • Full adaptation with mouse and keyboard
  • We’re using raw mouse input to reduce latency and use the Windows hardware cursor throughout the game without any additional signal filtering to smooth or accelerate mouse movement by default
  • Advanced keyboard support – Keyboard hotkeys for every menu and app for faster access. Additionally, all hotkeys can be remapped.
  • Mouse-centric UI – Any UI screen, menus or smartphone app supports full mouse interaction, so the player can finish any UI task with the mouse only. Everything is clickable and has appropriate button states.
  • Toggle/Hold modes for different controls (aim, sprint, walk, inventory, etc.)

 

Driving

  • Driving has been adapted to suit the keyboard controls, with adjustable steering sensitivity. Same goes for driving camera sensitivity and auto-centering camera behaviour.

 

Gamepad support

  • On-the-fly switching between mouse and keyboard to gamepad, without any additional options, UI will just switch to gamepad mode
  • Supported gamepads: Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers, third-party XInput gamepads (everything Xbox-based), PlayStation 4 Controller. We do not officially support Direct Input gamepads, Steam controllers or game wheels.

So basically they made the game for consoles and the last two weeks they will polish and port to pc? I fully support delaying a game for a week or two to fix issues (God, if only they've done it with Mafia 3), but looking trough the "new features" it just seems that they finished the game, launched it on PC and were like "wow.. This does not look or run good at all, lets add keyboard and mouse support" like wtf? and dont forget to upscale the 720p to 4k so 4k PC players can enjoy "good graphics". Damn ubisoft...Quote
