Thank you for posting the video but I could not watch them. The kids playing were far to irritating.

People who bought Watch Dogs 2 under the promise of a seamless blend between a solo campaign and multiplayer are finally going to get the game they paid for. Yesterday, developer/publisher Ubisoft turned on what it's calling the "second phase" of the feature to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners. From the company statement:

"Players will now be able to experience the full seamless multiplayer features: Nearby bounty targets and Prime_Eight rivals will join the player's world for them to hunt down and hack without going through the Multiplayer App in the smartphone. Players will also encounter friendly Dedsec hackers who can help them complete different Dedsec events throughout San Francisco. Players can also invite those Dedsec hackers to form a co-op team and complete co-op missions."
During the pre-launch period when press had advance access to the game, Ubisoft discovered that the drop-in multiplayer was wreaking havoc on Watch Dogs 2's frame rate and general stability. While certain multiplayer modes were available before this patch, as the statement says, you had to set them up for yourself rather than randomly happening upon another player in your own world -- a step back from how the first game worked.

Watch Dogs 2 was released on November 15th, so if you're keeping track at home, it took just over a week for the patch to make it through Microsoft's and Sony's respective quality certification programs.

It will be live tonight! 12AM EST/9PM PST

Watch Dogs 2 multiplayer
Watch Dogs 2 is carrying on with the seamless single-player/multiplayer integration of its predecessor, but expands it through a number of specific game modes and co-op opportunities. For example, this time around, players will be able to join each other in co-op missions or simply explore open-world San Francisco together.

Remember the weird Dark Souls-like multiplayer invasions of the first game? Well, they’re making a return, only this time around they’re fun thanks to the new hacking systems, drones and less grey surroundings.

Another multiplayer highlight is Bounty Hunter mode, which essentially makes police pursuits extra difficult to survive as up to three other players can potentially join in the chase on the side of the police, using all their hacker tools against you.

Online play is entirely optional, but everything that players do will contribute to progress made in the solo game - be it gaining followers for DedSec or unlocking sweet, sweet gear.

Just getting into the game. There are a lot less cameras than before, not sure how that will play out. Driving is a ton improved. Hacking was confusing, but now I get it. Interested to see how the CO-OP works and the online things...not quite there yet.

I only am 1 hour in.

Can you Co-Op from start or do you need to advance to some point in SP before?
