    Hack Friends

    Now you need to patch being able to hack your friends.

    If they are uplay friends then no notoriety points awarded or taken away, problem solved. If the mobile app has "contacts" in your in game phone then there is no reason why Aiden can't have "contacts" in his phone containing friends list.

    Please make this happen!

    No offense, but it is about time. Ha ha. With little info, if a patch would ever come out. You all finally came through. Even though the date is off by... two and a half weeks or so.

    Kudos Misty, Shade and the Devs!

    *Added* P.S. As always, picking favorites with PS4 having the patch released first.

    Just take a look at this video and download the ''mod'':

    How you can see, all of the E3 graphics are in your game files, just that they are being locked. So don't be afraid of the size of it, because it's just a config file that unlocks them cool graphics (tried it myself, at least textures and depth of field are now extremely close to the ones from 2012). Also, watch the video if you want to know why was all this data locked!

    Implemented several performance improvements.
    Which consist of what?

    Pretty poor patch notes to be honest, and it's taken this long? I don't see a substantial, detailed list of:

    - Stuttering issues
    - Performance issues on setups
    - Performance issues on certain cards
    - Graphical upgrades (from hidden E3 files)

    But i suppose, we'll just have to trust them.

    How big will the patch be? 10mbs, 120mbs, 2 gigs?

    I wonder how many "ninja changes" have been made, i wouldn't be surprised if they removed all the "hidden e3" stuff lol.
