Watch_Dogs Patch Fixes Corrupted Saves and More

PC players who bought the recently released Watch_Dogs soon experienced more than a few problems of varying degrees, and Ubisoft’s new game was soon chalked up to being a bad PC port.

As revealed on the Ubisoft forums by the publisher’s US forums manager on Wednesday, June 18, a patch for the game is being rolled out to all platforms throughout next week. Even though PC had its share of problems, so did the other consoles, too.

The patch will be available to download on the PlayStation 4 first, which was distributed a few hours after the forum post was made. A PlayStation 3 patch will be available shortly afterwards, followed by PC within the next few days, and the Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime next week.
