Watch Dogs: Legion Update 2.3 PC Patch Notes Released

We’ve been busy benchmarking more of Watch Dogs: Legion than we’ve had the pleasure of playing. However, so far, it does seem Ubisoft got more right than they did wrong this time around. It’s almost as if they’re learning from their past mistakes, but I don’t want to get carried away with the praise here.

It’s certainly a gorgeous looking game, but it does have some graphical issues that should be addressed in this patch. Things like black screens in some rooms, or overblown lighting during the day have been adjusted.

There’s obviously a lot of fixes for stability and crashes here, such as a bug that could CTD when turning ray tracing on or off. However, you’ll find a typical range of optimisation and performance improvements too.

There’s an important change to the way the game handles saving too, which should provide some defence against corruption of the saves and losing progression.

Just load up UPLAY or Epic Games Store and the game should auto-update! You can check out the full changelog below.

Changelog
