Watch Dogs: Legion Update 2.30 Is Live, Patch Notes Here

The latest patch for Ubisoft's anonymized open-world thriller fixes many bugs, but leaves two that Xbox players have recently complained about.

31 Comments

Ubisoft has unveiled the latest update for Watch Dogs: Legion, and it fixes a variety of unintended issues that have cropped up in the open-world hacker game. These are mostly bugs of a traditional video game variety, including players falling through floors, multiple crashes, and a particularly nasty issue that caused players to spawn without any player characters after dying on Permadeath mode. (The patch notes jokingly refer to this as a Super Game Over.)

However, there are two notable issues that Xbox players have complained about on social media that the patch does not address. One of those is a bug that reportedly corrupts save files on the Xbox Series X/S. Another is a constant audio glitch also affecting Xbox Series X/S players. Ubisoft says that the team has replicated those issues and is currently working on fixes for both. You may want to wait to play on these platforms, particularly because of the save glitch.

Watch Dogs: Legion's previous patch, Update 2.20, added a manual save game button to PC and added stability improvements for all platforms. Along with that update, Ubisoft announced that the multiplayer component of Legion has been delayed to early 2021 so that the development team can focus on ironing out the bugs. The game quickly went on sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You can find it for $30 at several retailers.
