Watch Dogs 2’s full multiplayer experience going live

News Xbox One

After a few teething problems at launch, Watch Dogs 2’s seamless multiplayer experience should be rolling out across Xbox One later this evening after the first phase of deployment went live at 16:00 for PlayStation 4.


The full experience will give players the following multiplayer options:


  • 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

If this deployment proves successful, the team will then unleash the second phase – Nearby bounty targets and Prime_Eight rivals – that can be hunted without needing to enter matchmaking via the in-game phone app. The second phase will also introduce friendly DedSec hackers that can be recruited to help you complete DedSec events.
