Watch Dogs 2 now on PC with specific optimizations

A few weeks after launching on consoles, Watch Dogs 2 has now landed on Windows PC.

It might even have been worth the wait as this seems to be the definitive edition of the game with various PC-specific improvements. Also because it seems to have Seamless Multiplayer out of the box.

Although Sony STILL have that 30 Day DLC exclusivity.

Regardless of hardware, this includes full 4K support, with support for Ultra textures and Extra Details. There’s also stuttering and lag framerate optimization, Screen Space Reflections, Headlight Shadows, and full SLI Crossfire support at launch.

The PC version also includes uncapped FPS, a fully mouse-centric UI, multiple save support, and even multi-monitor support.

Check out this PC Specific trailer to get the full picture.
