We already knew that the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 would be launching with several enhancing features. However, we weren’t prepared for what was actually in store for us.
Ubisoft has just revealed what the PC version will be packing at launch and it has left us speechless. For a developer that has been criticized countless times for sidelining the Windows platform, it has put much focus to ensure that the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 is a thing of beauty.
The upcoming sequel is releasing on PC with support for 4K resolution, as well as uncapped frame-rates. Additionally, players will have the option of “Ultra Textures” that only the most powerful of systems out there will be able to handle smoothly.
When we speak of powerful systems, we mean rigs packing multiple graphic cards. Watch Dogs 2 promises to arrive on PC with full support for SLI/Crossfire configurations. Respective drivers from Nvidia and AMD will be available at launch to iron out any optimization issues. On top of that, the sequel will also have multi-monitor support with advanced settings that allow for customized menus and HUD.
Coming over to graphics options, players will be able to adjust FOV, Pixel Density, and Sharpness. Anti-aliasing options will give you control over TXAA, MSAA, SMAA, and FXAA. That’s a lot of anti-aliasing, multi-sampling or otherwise.
Ubisoft has even looked over the controls aspect. Watch Dogs 2 on PC is completely configured for keyboard-and-mouse setups as well as Xbox One and DualShock 4 controllers. The developer has also added separate steering sensitivities and controls for the game’s driving elements.
It’s all very impressive to say the least.
Watch Dogs 2 is scheduled to release on November 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC version has been delayed by two weeks in order to get some extra polish in. You can start preparing your rig in the mean time and be ready when the PC version releases on November 29.
