Watch Dogs 2 got its final patch today, which makes impossible to use mods while online if you’re playing on PC. The game’s publisher, Ubisoft, says that this is to ensure fair online play, but the game’s small modding community is very frustrated.
A temporary Independence Day celebration in Watch Dogs 2 was suspended early on July 4 because it was enraging too many people who still play Ubisoft’s late 2016 open-world game.
In another sign that something wasn’t quite right with the roll-out of last November’s Watch Dogs 2, the game’s publisher said today that it is moving some of the planned paid content from the game’s season pass to a free update. For paying customers, Ubisoft is replacing it with other stuff.
A new 10GB patch for Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs 2 fixes bugs, adds new clothing, tweaks some systems and primes the game for some downloadable expansions, but it also adds a mysterious conversation to the game’s final cutscene. That’s got people guessing, since game endings don’t usually get patched.

Three of us on staff have been playing Watch Dogs 2. Two of us have finished it. We figured it was a good time to chat about the good and bad of the game. There was a lot to consider! Bonus: We may accidentally wandered into a discussion about why one of us is very, very hard to please.
Ubisoft released a patch for Watch Dogs 2 yesterday in preparation of the first DLC, which will fix some known bugs and balance the multiplayer game modes. While it’s not exactly The Sims level hilarious, there are still some funny changes alongside the more necessary ones.
Today on Highlight Reel we have Last Guardian dance parties, Titanfall 2 flag caps, NHL goals and much more!
Watch Dogs 2's seamless multiplayer was broken at launch, but some of the features have been brought online today for Playstation 4, with availability for Xbox One soon to follow.
