Watch Dogs 2 Is Getting A Boost In Performance On PC

Ubisoft has just released update 1.09 for Watch Dogs 2. The main purpose of this update was to give PC players a nice boost in performance and visuals.

The update will optimize system memory usage to improve performance on systems with low RAM, improves the overall performance of Screenspace Reflections and adds two new lower quality levels (Medium and High), and increases the maximum value of the Pixel Density slider from 1.25 to 1.5. These changes should work together nicely to help improve performance for PC players with mid-range computers.

Here are the full patch notes:

  • [Performance] RAM Usage Optimization – This patch optimizes a system memory usage which improves the game’s performance on systems with low RAM amount.
  • [Performance] Screenspace Reflections Optimization – This patch improves the overall performance of Screenspace Reflections and adds two new lower quality levels (Medium and High).
  • San Francisco Fog – The algorithm of the San Francisco Fog (aka “Karl”) appearing is improved with this title update.
  • Visual – The maximum value of the Pixel Density slider has been changed from 1.25 to 1.5 with this patch.
  • Sound – We have added a Music Volume slider.
  • Controller – Added support for the newer DualShock 4 controllers (ZCT2U models).
  • YourBoySerge Nerf – This .50 Cal sniper rifle has been the subject of some debate in the community, and is considered to be overpowered in online play. In this patch, we’ve reduced the number of rounds in the magazine from 6 to 1, and we will continue to monitor and balance this beasty rifle.
  • Fixed various minor issues with flickering.
  • Fixed various minor issues with incorrect window modes behavior.
  • Fixed various minor issues with the UI and text.

Watch Dogs 2 is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
