Hey, guys! We've got some more Watch Dogs news! I know how much you all love that, but hear me out. There's a new patch coming for all platforms. That means PS4, PS3, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
The patch is being rolled out on a staggered release schedule, with the PlayStation 4 patch quoted to have been coming out "in the next few hours" as of the Watch Dogs team's forum posting. The PS3 version is "coming shortly," with the PC patch arriving in "the coming days." Xbox One and Xbox 360 players should expect their patch next week or so.
But what does the patch entail? Oh, I'm so glad you asked. I've been dying to use the blockquote feature all week. Straight from the Watch Dogs team:
