We told you earlier this week that there was a Watch Dogs graphics mod for PC. This particular mod hit the headlines as it claimed to offer Watch Dogs PC graphics that were comparable to the original game that we saw back in 2012.
As you can imagine, this has made a lot of gamers happy and the initial screenshots appeared to show that this mod was simply reenabling graphics render settings that were already put in place by Ubisoft, but disabled.
Now, we have an update to bring you on this as Ubisoft has issued a statement on the matter. The developer and publisher has confirmed that the graphics render settings in question do indeed exist within the PC files of the game.
However, Ubisoft has said that they were disabled for a reason and although they may make the game look a lot nicer than it is at the moment – they also said that it could have a negative impact on the game’s performance and in a worst case scenario, make Watch Dogs unstable full stop.
Are you still planning to take advantage of the mod to enjoy better Watch Dogs graphics on PC, even though Ubisoft has warned about negative impacts?
Those who bought the game on PS4 and Xbox One will be taking an interesting seat as a spectator to see how this unfolds.
