After being out for a while now, Ubisoft is only just now rolling out a patch to Watch Dogs - something that PC gamers should receive in the next few days, while PS4 gamers get it today, and Xbox gamers receiving it sometime next week.

But now I have a question: will TheWorse/E3 2012 mod still work after this patch? Ubisoft has already alienated and pissed off the PC gaming community with its deliberate gimping of Watch Dogs on PC, but this would just be yet another strike against the publisher. Hopefully the mod still works, so gamers get an even more stable game with bug fixes, with better graphics than they had before.

 

Here's a full list of what to expect:

 

MAJOR GAME FIXES

  • Automatically reconstructed corrupted save files which prevented loading to go further than 90%. Some collectibles may remain unrecoverable.
  • Fixed the issue preventing players from using hacks in-game.

 

GAMEPLAY FIXES

  • Fixed several mission-breaking bugs.
  • Fixed minor mission and item-related issues.
  • Fixed the issue that caused the empty weapon-wheel.

 

MULTIPLAYER FIXES

  • Fixed several minor respawn issues.
  • Fixed some connection and session joining issues.

 

PC SPECIFIC FIXES

  • Fixed graphical glitches on Low & Medium settings.
  • Fixed some crashes on SLI configurations.
  • Implemented several performance improvements.
  • Implemented a few control improvements.
  • Fixed issues causing infinite messaging and timing-out when trying to access the Online Shop from the Extras Menu while Uplay is set to Offline mode.
  • Fixed issues connecting to a Multiplayer game.
  • Implemented several mouse modifications.
  • Fixed "Drinking Game" control issue where wrong information was displayed when played with a gamepad.
  • Fixed "Chess Game" control issue.
  • Fixed bug where the invasion setting was never saved.
  • Fixed graphical issues during cut scenes and cinematics.
  • Fixed several graphical and texture bugs.
  • Removed Vista OS check to prevent false positives.
