Watch Dogs: Legion Update 3.0 Fixes Crashes On Console

The latest patch also prepares the console versions for an upcoming technical multiplayer test.

Comments

Ubisoft has released Title Update 3.0 for Watch Dogs: Legion on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia. The latest patch introduces the same global fixes that were included in the PC version with last month's update, along with several console-specific bug fixes and improvements.

A number of crash issues have been rectified as part of Title Update 3.0's global fixes, as well as a multitude of other issues ranging from certain sound effects not playing to pedestrians not adequately dodging the player's vehicle. On top of this, each console version includes numerous fixes relating to specific crashes and other issues.

On Xbox Series X|S, for example, there's a fix for an issue that could cause the system to run out of memory, while the PlayStation 5 version resolves an engine bug that could cause the game to crash.

Ubisoft is also running a technical test on all consoles for Watch Dogs: Legion's upcoming online co-op mode. A similar test previously occurred on PC and gave the development team an opportunity to identify several issues to ensure that the online mode's launch is as smooth as possible.

Co-op was originally planned to hit Watch Dogs: Legion shortly after launch, but Ubisoft ultimately delayed it to focus its efforts on patching single-player issues. It promised at the time that the online mode would come in early 2021.

The online mode is said to allow up to four players to take on missions in Legion's open-world London, as well as the first Tactical Op and a PvP mode called Spiderbot Arena. Ubisoft also has more story content planned for the season pass this year.
