Watch Dogs 2 Update 1.16 Brings Four-Player Party Mode, 4th of July Event, and Much More; Read Full Patch Notes Here

Will you and your friends be returning to Watch Dogs 2?

Ubisoft has announced today that their latest action hacking adventure game, Watch Dogs 2 will be receiving update 1.16 which will add plenty of requested features.

The main feature of the update is most notably the four-player party mode. Up until now, players were only granted one other friend to join up in co-op, but thanks to the new mode up to four players could now join.

However, as Ubisoft notes, this is only for the party mode, four players will not be able to complete co-op missions as they were designed for only two players.

The update also brings a slew of new things to the game as well as new outfits, a fourth of July event, and much more. Check out the new trailer and full detailed patch notes down below:

4-PLAYER PARTY MODE – The free roam you know and love is back – now, from the Multiplayer App in your smartphone, two to four friends can enter into a private or public party mode. Free roam around San Francisco causing havoc, or jump into any of these activities on-demand, all of which have been balanced for the optimal amount of 2-4-person tomfoolery:

  • 4-player Party: Bounty
  • 4-player Party: Invasion
  • 4-player Party: PvP Loot Truck
  • 4-player Party: Races
  • 4-player Party: Showd0wn
  • 4-player Party: Robot Boss Fight
  • 4-player Party: DedSec – Virus
  • MULTIPLAYER MODE LAUNCH – All multiplayer modes can now be launched manually using the Multiplayer app in your smartphone. No more waiting for events to spawn!

    FOURTH OF JULY – Celebrate Independence Day, hacker-style! From now to July 10th, find yourself a cozy spot with an unobstructed view of the Bay and enjoy nightly fireworks with your friends in the new 4-player party mode.

    Or, grab a group of friends and get down with your patriotic self in a flurry of red, white and blue paintballs.

    SHUFFLER OUTFIT – Players who completed the Shuffler objective but did not receive the outfit and stealth takedown will now receive it. The outfit can be found in your wardrobe; the stealth takedown is available while wearing the outfit.

    OTHER – You can now skip the animation when in co-op and using the 3D printer to change weapons or loadout
