Watch Dogs 2 Patch Notes Detail Today's Big Free Update
GameSpot has the story
A major free update arrives today on all platforms for Watch Dogs 2, delivering a new multiplayer mode and weapon, among other things.
Ubisoft describes the 1.13 patch as the game's biggest free update so far. Its most significant feature is Showdown, a new 2v2 PvP mode intended as an "endgame challenge" that you can play with a friend or other players found through matchmaking. Matches are set in 15 different locations and involve one of three different objective types that approximate Capture the Flag, King of the Hill, and Domination-style modes in other games.
Drone, motocross, and ekart races all receive support for multiplayer in this update, and each will have its own respective leaderboard. Additionally, when exploring the world, you'll also begin to come across armored loot trucks. These can be hacked, activating an event where you have to survive waves of police in return for a big reward.
