While Watch Dogs is a beautiful game, no doubt about that, it certainly looks different from the demo that Ubisoft showed off back in 2012. However as you might recall, one modder discovered hidden files in the game that basically unlocked the high-res texture and graphics, thus making the game look closer to its 2012 demo.

Well the good newsis that according to Eurogamer, the modder, Federico “TheWorse” Rojas has put the finishing touches on the mod, thus releasing the finished version of the mod at version 1.0. Or at least the version that is most stable. Previously the mod was still in the process of being completed, but was still available for testing.

According to Rojas, “I did my best to improve graphics and performance as much as I could without degrading the quality.” For those interested in checking it out, you can head on over to his website to download it for yourself.

In the meantime we should point out that Ubisoft has since acknowledged the existence of the hidden files. However they do caution users against the mod, claiming that by using it, it could affect the performance of the game and could potentially render it unstable and less enjoyable. We guess it will also depend on whether or not your hardware will be able to support it, but if you don’t mind seeing what all the fuss is about, why not take it for a spin?
