Watch Dogs ' first major patch is coming soon, says publisher Ubisoft. As soon as next week, players on various platforms will see improvements in the way the hit game looks and plays.
Details on the patch appeared the company's support forums today, listing fixes for players on PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms. The update will be rolling out for PS4 today, with roll-outs for PS3 coming soon after. PC players get it next in a few days and Xbox One and Xbox 36o owners will have to wait until next week. Here's what's getting fixed :
