Legion recently received its version 4.0 update and Ubisoft has already revealed some of the features included in the upcoming version 4.5 update. One of the main features highlighted in the blog post is the addition of 60fps performance mode on both PS5 and Xbox Series X.

This was a much-needed feature considering the game originally provided 30fps on next-gen systems. According to Ubisoft, it is “one of the biggest requests from our next-gen console players”.

Ubisoft also added several other features to Watch Dogs: Legion with the 4.0 update.
