Today, Ubisoft confirmed via a statement that Watch Dogs 2‘s seamless multiplayer online feature, which was made available to PS4 users an hour ago, is expected to be activated for Xbox One users overnight.
After launch complications. Watch_Dogs 2’s online feature is now available for PS4 and will soon be made available to Xbox One players. Once implemented, players will be able to experience the following multiplayer features in Watch_Dogs 2 via the Multiplayer App on the in-game smartphone:
- Invite friends to co-op or search for new co-op partners
- Hack into a rival hacker’s world
- Find targets for Bounty Hunts or trigger a bounty on themselves
Ubisoft released the following statement:
“The development team will monitor the online stability of the seamless multiplayer features and should everything continue to run smoothly, the additional elements and final phase of seamless multiplayer will be deployed: 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.
We will provide periodic updates through this process and we have truly appreciated everyone’s patience and support while we worked to implement the seamless multiplayer feature of the game.”
Watch_Dogs 2 is available now for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
