Watch Dogs: Legion was released last year and if you haven’t played it but were planning on doing so with a next-gen console, then this might be good news for you. This is because Ubisoft has announced that they will be introducing a new mode to the game in the form of a performance boost.
This is done so that gamers on next-gen consoles like that of the PS5 and the Xbox Series X will be able to enjoy the game by taking advantage of their hardware. This will basically bump up the frame rates that gamers can get from the game up to 60 fps. For those needing a bit of context, the game was previously locked at 30 fps despite it being called a game designed for next-gen consoles, so this update is actually very much welcome.
While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with playing games at 30 fps, 60 fps does make the game feel a lot smoother and more pleasant, which could encourage gamers who didn’t buy the game to buy it. Watch Dogs: Legion won’t be the only game Ubisoft will be giving a performance mode. Other games by the company such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Rainbow Six Siege were also given similar performance mode updates.
