Why Watch Dogs: Legion May Be Worth Checking Out Again

The next-gen versions of Watch Dogs: Legion will receive some highly requested upgrades in upcoming patches. During an AMA on the Watch Dogs subreddit, Watch Dogs: Legion live producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan confirmed that "60fps for next gen consoles is in development," with exact release dates slated to come from the company sometime in the future.

Watch Dogs: Legion has offered both a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X version since the consoles launched back in November. While Watch Dogs: Legion supports 4K visuals and ray tracing, it's currently locked at 30FPS. Though full details have not been confirmed, it's safe to assume that the 60FPS mode will have to make a visual sacrifice, possibly running at a lower resolution or without ray tracing.

60FPS isn't the only upgrade Ubisoft has in the works for Watch Dogs: Legion. According to the game's official Twitter account, crossplay and cross-generation play will also arrive as part of an upcoming update. This functionality will not only allow players on Xbox and PlayStation to play together but let those still on last-gen systems play with friends who have gotten their hands on the latest generation of consoles. The developer did not provide a release window for these features either.

While critics considered Watch Dogs: Legion a mixed bag at launch, Ubisoft has continued to update and support the game, most recently with the launch of an online option which features both competitive modes and co-op missions. The online mode's release didn't come without its own hiccups, however, including a PC glitch that delayed a Tactical Ops mission and limited in-game chat for the first two weeks. Based on the official Legion roadmap, there's more to come in the next few months, including the addition of Aiden Pearce and Wrench from the previous Watch Dogs games and a crossover with Assassin's Creed.

In other Ubisoft news, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has received tons of updates and has even more in store, such as the upcoming Ireland-based DLC. Unfortunately, the ongoing update schedule has also added more glitches and game-breaking bugs to the massive RPG. As for other anticipated titles, Ubisoft has not given Far Cry 6 an official release date after delaying its original February launch. The Xbox Live Store may have leaked the new release date, but Ubisoft has not confirmed a replacement date for the game.
