Watch Dogs 2's seamless multiplayer going live on Xbox today

Coming a week after the game's launch, Watchdogs 2 is finally set to roll out its seamless multiplayer experience to everyone. Ubisoft announced that the seamless multiplayer experience has already rolled out to Playstation 4, and the experience will roll out to Xbox One later this evening.

According to Ubisoft, seamless multiplayer will enable the following features via the Multiplayer app:

  • Invite friends to co-op or search for new co-op partners
  • Hack into a rival hacker's world
  • Find targets for Bounty Hunts or trigger a bounty on themselves

Ubisoft notes that it is continuing to keep an eye on the performance of seamless multiplayer, and it's holding back a couple of features for now. Should all continue to run smoothly, other multiplayer features will be added, like Bounty mode without using the app, and encountering other players for co-op missions and DedSec events.

In any case, you should expect seamless multiplayer to go live for Xbox One within the day.

  • Awesome!!!!! Loving the single player campaign and am looking forward to what multiplayer has to offer.
  • Nice
  • Do people recommend WD2?
  • Great, I've been having an absolute blast with the game (really plays like GTA) and happy to have the ability to hack other people now. If you liked GTA V I would recommend checking this out.
  • Excellent! Thank you :)
  • Xbox Live Gold Required?
  • Pretty sure you need gold for all multiplayer gaming
  • Is this most supposed to be different to the multiplayer from the first game? I'm going to get this at some point but have a few really good games to play from the black Friday sales. Just finished Dishonored over a couple of days and also picked up Titanfall 2, Gears 4, Deus Ex Mankind divided, oddworld new n tasty. Also have battlefield 1 to carry on playing which I bought a while a go but will play continuously.
  • What's with the tagline you used, "Not so seamless"?
  • Think it refers to the staggered rollout and the fact they are still expecting / looking out for issues in the performance of the feature which isn't really what you'd call "Seamless"
