When Watch Dogs 2 was being promoted by selected influencers there seemed to be something not quite right with the Watch Dogs 2 seamless multiplayer. Laggy connections or poor net code meant videos showing off multiplayer often had other players jumping around the screen in unexpected movements. That was apparently because Ubisoft stated that the
Watch Dogs 2′s ‘seamless multiplayer’ will not be live at launch as it’s not ready. The team is working on a fix and we want to ensure that the core experience is stable at launch.
Now, it seems like Ubisoft is ready to try again and roll out the multiplayer modes for the open-world hacking title.
PlayStation 4 multiplayer features are rolling out first with Xbox One being hooked up with multiplayer between now and Wednesday, 23rd November. Once complete, players will be able to invite friends for local co-op sessions, invade rival hacker campaigns, and pursue bounty hunts for extra cash.
All being well, the multiplayer issues that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the Watch Dogs 2 seamless multiplayer had will be resolved before the PC version is released next week.
Regardless of platform, be sure to be on your best behaviour. If you aren’t, and you cause too much chaos then the in-game San Francisco Police Department will put out an APB for your arrest. At that point, rival players will be able to hunt you down and claim your bounty.
