Watch Dogs: Legion Title Update 2.20 Released, Patch Notes Revealed

Watch Dogs: Legion players got a new update this week to hopefully fix a number of the issues they’ve been encountering in Ubisoft’s game since its release. The notes for the Title Update 2.20 released this week prior to the patch’s availability detailed a bunch of different changes for the game overall as well as some that are specific to different platforms. Those who haven’t upgraded to the new PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X or Series S consoles will be happy to hear that the same update also improves stability and performance on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The patch notes for the latest update were revealed this week which was good news for those waiting for them, but the reveal was accompanied with bad news as well. At the same time, Ubisoft announced that its multiplayer mode planned to come to Watch Dogs: Legion this year had been delayed and would not be released until 2021. A new release date for that content hasn’t been announced yet.

What we do have this year is the game’s latest title update that’s now available. You can see the patch notes below separated by platforms to see what’s changed and where.
