View Full Version : Patch Notes: Title Update 1.08/ TU on PC

12-13-2016, 06:18 PM
Now that we’ve patched most of the issues identified at launch, it’s time to start including the fun stuff. This patch is being made in preparation for the first DLC, the T-Bone Content Bundle, but also includes free content, balancing to multiplayer game modes (particularly Hacking Invasions), and lots of bug fixes. As we move forward, we’ll continue to introduce free content updates for everyone outside of DLC offerings and will continue to make tweaks to the online experience based on our data analysis and your feedback. Title Update 1.08 will be available later this week.

Note: This patch will deliver Leaderboard rewards for those who earned them in Season 1 but did not receive the items. We’ve also had a talk with the “PULL OVER NOW!” policewoman and she agrees that it’s not necessary to repeat that command as frequently to get the point across. We’re all grateful.

New Features

Replay Missions - We’ve added a functionality that lets you replay any mission that is part of a Main Operation. This will let you relive your favorite moments or experiment with different playstyles.
Hacker Level - Your new Hacker Level is now displayed as a stat in Marcus’ phone, based on followers acquired. You can see another player’s Hacker Level when you profile them, and this will allow you to compare yourself against your friends.
Enemy Weapons – DedSec picked up blueprints for enemy weapons and now they’re all available to print from the 3D Printer - for a fee.
Select Difficulty Level - The first time you start a new game, you’ll be prompted to choose a difficulty level. As a reminder, you can change the difficulty level at any time in the Game Options app.

Tweaks & Balancing
Hacking Invasions

We made so many tweaks to Hacking Invasions we gave the mode its own section here. We tried some new things with this game mode and there’s been a lot of discussion since players started playing online. After reviewing the data and feedback, we’ve concluded that there are too many opportunities for the target to accidentally discover the hacker. This takes away from rewarding the skill of both the hacker and target; therefore, updates to Hacking Invasions are primarily focused on preventing the occurrence of accidental discoveries.

Before the download is started:

o The target can no longer automatically profile the hacker or their RC.
o For the target player, in NetHack, the hacker’s RC is displayed as a neutral-colored object (instead of red).
o If the target does an action that reveals the presence of a hacker in their game the search zone is now 3 times bigger.
o To help the hacker to initiate the download while the target is moving in a vehicle, the hacker can now hold the hack button on the target for a distance up to 120m.

During the download:

o Fixed an issue where the target’s name would be visible without having a line of sight on them.
o Fixed issues in NetHack that (in some situations) allowed the target to see civilians/hacker through the walls.
o To reduce accidental detection:
- In NetHack, for the target, a small delay has been added before showing the identity of the person being targeted.
- In NetHack, for the target, the targeting angle was reduced.
o Enemy player’s RC can no longer be profiled through walls.
o The red targeting line displayed between the enemy and their RC only appears when the RC is profiled, instead of just by targeting it.
o The hacker is warned when their RC is profiled: “RC WAS DETECTED: Your position has been revealed!”

Hacker rewards: You’ll be rewarded based on the percentage of download completed, and you’ll get extra rewards if you escape. This also means that if your target disconnects or quits, you’ll still get some reward.
Exploit: Fixed an exploit where the player could not be seen while in the water using the Nethack vision.
Bug: Fixed an issue where the media player song would still play in Nudle Map while being invaded by another player, creating an exploit that allowed you to better identify when you’re being invaded.
Bug: Fixed an exploit where the side activities icons would disappear from the world map if a player was being invaded.


Leaderboard: We want to showcase your leaderboard rank more prominently. Therefore, your leaderboard rank for each multiplayer activity is now displayed at the beginning and end of each match, and also in the Multiplayer app. This is a priority feature we want to improve, so you can expect future updates.
Co-Op: We’ve made it easier to team up for co-op with a player that’s already in your session. Entering the vehicle of an allied player will prompt that player to team up for co-op.
Co-Op: We’ve added difficulty level to online operations icons on the world map.
You can now throw an IED on rooftops from street level. You can do this at any point, but as NPCs typically aren’t found wandering around on rooftops, this will come in especially handy in online game modes.


Shooting Mechanics: We’ve made changes to the shooting behavior so that shooting your weapon feels more satisfying.

o Improved weapon recoil, making for increased accuracy when firing multiple rounds.
o The sound of each weapon firing and bullet impact has been improved.
o Bullet tracers are more visible.

AI: Improved AI sniper behavior by making them move less from cover to cover, meaning they’ll shoot more often.

Localization: Larger fonts in Arabic and Chinese subtitles to make them more visible.

Gallery: Minor graphical fixes to Camera and Gallery interface that will help you take better screenshots.

Bug Fixes

Leaderboard rewards: If you earned a leaderboard reward in Season 1, it will be delivered to your inventory in this patch.
“PULL OVER NOW!”: The loudspeaker policewoman will repeat this command less frequently.
Wall Geometry Exploits: Players can no longer use motorcycles to pass through walls, and we’ve fixed other similar wall exploits.
Broken missions/halted progression: Fixed progression-breaking issues for the following missions: Power to the Sheeple, Alcatraz Showdown, Infected Bytes, Just Making a Living, Get Back in the Game, Jailbird Blues, and Kicking it Old School. If you got stuck during any of these missions, you’ll be able to proceed now without starting over.
Mass Sitara: Improved an issue where Sitara could be present multiple times in the Hacker Space during A Walk in the Park.
Bounty: Fixed a rare issue where a Bounty could go on forever if the hunted player hid in Wrench’s garage.
Bike Collision: Reduced the collision size on bikes so the player can drive closer to obstacles without bailing (time to find some trees and go nuts).
Leaderboards: Fixed the description of the divisions in the leaderboards; percentage details were wrong.
Invasion Rewards: Fixed an issue where you wouldn’t get the reward for neutralizing an invader without profiling them first.
Co-Op: Fixed an issue where a player couldn’t get into a car while playing in coop.
Improved performance and stability
Minor graphical improvements
Fixed multiple AI and traffic issues
Several improvements on the GPS pathing
Fixed multiple replication issues
Fixed numerous minor audio and text issues in localized versions of the game
Lots and lots of other minor bug fixes

PC-Only Updates (Seen as Patch for PC-only)

San Francisco Fog (aka “Karl”): Fixed a timer bug that was causing the iconic fog to appear less often than intended. On the days it appears, it will show up around 6PM and disappear around 2PM the next day. In a future update, we’ll adjust and randomize its appearance times, so you can enjoy it more often. If you are eager to see it, you can always make the time pass faster by taking a nap on the sofa in the HQ.

o The fog is not turned on by default (due to high demands on your PC) and must be activated in settings.

Improved performance on Crossfire systems (AMD dual GPU systems)
Fixed various minor issues with the UI and text.
Fixed minor issues with the HUD in multi-monitor mode
Fixed various cases of reflections corruption.

Can we get an option maybe through Uplay points to purchase a way to see all collectibles on the map? And perhaps an option in the Settings Menu to make the city feel more dense based on computer ability? For example, an option to add more cars or people?

Other than this, I think this game is damn near perfect. Loving the patch notes too! Good job Ubi!

EDIT: It would be nice if shouting policewoman lady could be alternated to another voice or even a man randomly. I say this because she sounds eerily like my sister in law and her voice... grating.


12-13-2016, 09:17 PM
I see crossfire is getting some attention. Will SLI scaling be improved, also?

12-13-2016, 09:40 PM
Great patch, but why i still have 1.06 version? Game didnt update, but i can play MP. I verificated game files still nothing.

12-13-2016, 09:58 PM
So the players that were finding it difficult to invade, got what they wanted.

12-13-2016, 10:00 PM
I hope, ubisoft fixed fps drops,because it's simply impossible to play!

12-13-2016, 10:00 PM
Great patch, but why i still have 1.06 version? Game didnt update, but i can play MP. I verificated game files still nothing.

It's not out yet. Read the bottom of the first section.

12-14-2016, 03:55 PM
Downloading now 1.6 GB of data in Uplay. Is this the patch?

12-14-2016, 04:10 PM
Thanks for the Patch!
I see that on PC the Car on Demand app has been modified, Now I have to hold the button to call a new car, just like I saw it on PS4. Are there any other changes to COD? I am sure lot of people complained about the weird delivery locations, that the game uses sometimes. Inside red areas, closed garages, The unpredictable delivery distance was an issue in WD1, too. But making it worse was a big achievement in WD2. :)

12-14-2016, 04:59 PM
No hitdetection on long range from 300 meters ?!?!?!!

12-14-2016, 05:14 PM
I can confirm that the patch today is the patch as detailed. Tested certain key online elements so far and definitely a better model for multiplayer.

12-14-2016, 06:46 PM
Did a brief test of the update. At least on me the performance didn't improve, CPU rate still runs at 100 % at most of the times.


12-14-2016, 06:47 PM
Cool, my game just updated.

Thanks so much for the update ;)

12-14-2016, 07:02 PM
Still can't do something as simple as take my glasses off though! I understand they are marcus staple and it won't work with some of the hats but should it not be up to us how we want to customise marcus there is so much customisation but no taking sunglasses off its annoying

12-14-2016, 07:52 PM
I still can't play without disconnecting all my secondary monitors. It's really frustrating that every time I want to start this game, I have to unplug few cables from my computer case.


12-14-2016, 09:21 PM
What about buying convertible cars?

12-14-2016, 10:29 PM
o If the target does an action that reveals the presence of a hacker in their game the search zone is now 3 times bigger.

What sorts of actions would do this?

12-14-2016, 10:41 PM

Just want to say thank you for the great update and really appreciate all the interactivity you have with us fans as well as your hard work to appease us. :)
Keep up the great work and I can continue to ignore my wife and children's needs so I can keep playing this awesome game! :D

12-15-2016, 02:05 AM
Ubi, you guys are ****ing awesome! I don't care what anyone says... you have REALLY turned things around in the last several months (Division PTS and overal WD2 being prime examples of actually 'listening' to your players). Your release support engagement has been phenomenal. Great work, great game and great patch!

Now if you could just get in-game AA to be playable :) And maybe you can do something about the extremely sub-par engine sounds :P

Anyway, I am super stoked you fixed several issues with MP - I can't wait to try it out when the patch finishes installing. And I am so glad you fixed that annoying *** popo beeyotch! :D

So cool GRW is already <3 months away. If Division PTS and WD2 are any indication of how good it will be... we're in for a treat.

12-15-2016, 02:12 AM
Mission Replay is great but why start it after we have already hacked in? cant it be more like the original way it worked where we have to get to the target, scope it out and figure out how to hack it and then hack it? That was really the fun puzzle solving part of the mission.....

I don't understand why when we are online hacking another player we cant even stun them "do not hurt victim in any way"! but they can do anything they want to us shoot us even kill us, why? why cant it be evenly balanced?

Please add to the map the ability for us to put favorites pins in a spot and add a name for them or the name is automatic there are a lot of cool places in the cities but there is no way to "remember" where to find them again if we want to just hang out there or explore more.....

I really hope I get the holiday sweater and cap its really unfortunate that we were told about the challenge till the day after it was over!

and why cant marcus have his own place?! his own apt or home or both that he can decorate buy furniture etc maybe invite friends in co op over? he seems very homeless for a guy with a million bucks!!

also Wrench jr robot was so much fun but why did he disappear for so long you should have had it hanging out in the main HQ and running around going beep boop and letting us hack him for hysterical results NEEDS MORE FUNNY ROBOTS

when I'm driving a car and in fp mode where I can see the dashboard why is all lo rez and blurry? and the mirrors don't work? everything in the game is hyper realistic but the dash and mirrors in the car suck! please make it look real like everything I like actually driving the car in first person mode its more real than the default cam setting

be great if marcus could actually sit down and eat a meal once in a while not just drink only actually be nice if marcus could sit down period anywhere on a seat a bench etc etc...

theres a bug in ps4 where sometimes when you have stun grenades set you get an lethal explosion instead ! and maybe vice versa not sure but any times I drop a stunner and set it off and the whole place blows killing everyone and alerting more bad guys not what I intended at all.

12-15-2016, 06:17 AM
Ubisoft you have so much potential to make this game last for a long, long time, just like The Division!

So, please, keep adding new free content to the game, mainly multiplayer ones (which is the reason why players play a game for a long time).

Keep expanding it, add new levels, deeper progression system, new rewards and new game modes (please, or at least bring back decryption; pvp teams)!

It's going to make DLCs much more attractive, as the base game it's perfect already.

12-15-2016, 08:23 AM
Could you please change the "Esc" key behaviour? I have accidentally cancelled several inmportant conversations and "news" (Yes, I actually do care about the story). For example having to long press the key? Short press would still take you to menu / exit remote view (RC, camera etc.). Also, please add pausable cutscenes, it has been a nice feature for several years across multiple major games (including Ubisoft games), but it missing in this one...

12-15-2016, 01:00 PM
you've outdone yourself Ubisoft. Thanks for paying attention to the little details like the irritating police lady and so many changes to the hacking invasions!! Kudos to the WD2 team

12-16-2016, 08:30 PM
By the sounds of things, I seem to be in a minority. The update downloaded and installed just fine the other night. But, "AFTER" the update, I'm suddenly getting stuttering, out right 'freezing' and dumped to the desktop! I've tried to play it two days in a row, with the same result.
Prior to this last update, I was having no problems on my machine.

I was experiencing some sync problems with another player that either had a slower network connection, or a less capable computer system. Mainly when driving. There was kind of a rubber band effect, where we'd be driving forward, then sort of bounce back a little then continue. Not a regular stutter, but kind of a bounce. It wasn't my system, because when we were on motorcycles, he was the one that was jumping around like it was on a rubber band, while my motion was normal.

I should add that, Nvidia updated our drivers the same day, before I started playing the game, so it 'could' be their fault. That's why I'm going to uninstall the last driver and reinstall the previous one and see what that does.

Intel i7
GTX 780
1 TB (WD Black HD)

A couple suggestions or requests:

1) Offer an option in the set up menu to reduce the "music" volume in cars and such. I have difficulty hearing some of my coop players. It's either NO music at all, or full blast music, drowning out voices.

2) I agree with one of the... question... suggestions above about the inequality of hacker and hacked being able to knock out or kill one, but he can do nothing to the other. It's just plain not fair! I can't remember which is which, but I've even launched a grenade at the guy, and nothing happens to him, but he can kill me with one shot! That just isn't right.

If only there was a somewhat similar game mode, where the invader not just can but must kill the defender! Wait, oh, bounty hunting does just that. Maybe play that.
Online hacking is an asymmetrical mode. Different rules, different goals, different advantages and drawbacks for the two sides. If you are not vulnerable as the invader, that just takes away the risk and fun from it.
What I'd like to see reintroduced is retaliation mode. Give me a chance to hack back my hacker Also prompt my targets to hack me back. That way maybe I'll get more invaders.

please, keep adding new free content to the game, mainly multiplayer ones (which is the reason why players play a game for a long time).

when you see the amount of ppl starving for GTA5 SP content, i dont agree tho. Sure MP, if well made make a life live for long. ( or just see how live skyrim because modding, or fallout 4 ) SP content clearly should be underestimated.

But, the devs should also think to the SP, and imho, with nice "procedural" activities for some "infinite" gameplay, guess the open world is big enough to add many fun thing to do, so make the game even more alive.

Hi. After patch i found this bugs




Please fix this. Thanks.

12-27-2016, 09:55 PM
I'm more concerned in this Trash watch dogs 2 bugs:
1. Radio screen on map not displaying
2. Stutter fps drop
3. Weapon not responding sometimes
4. Getting into car no response
5.WTF online feature such as za virus, the hunt, hack the hackers in offline? And yet they're not routine, if you wanna make them online then do so don't bother offline

If you have all online events turned off, including co-op, this should cancel.

If you already have all online events turned off and they're still showing up, then it's not an online event as much as it's a side mission with a time limit.

Hi. After patch i found this bugs


well, the only thing they can do is create more lod level of that building for a smoother transition, but considering the amount of thing that game should receive as fix.... imho that's the least important stuff to do..

And its not a "bug" every single game have lod transition to save performance
