For players who are looking to find ways to improve their PC experience and performance, we strongly recommend you read this FAQ to ensure that your specs adhere to our recommended specs: https://support.ubi.com/en-GB/faqs/000025719/Performance-Issues-In-Watch-Dogs-2

For PC players using Nvidia and are looking for ways to get smoother performance, we also recommend you do a clean install of your drivers. To do this, players need to re-install their drivers by checking the “Perform a clean installation” checkbox like so: http://i.imgur.com/Hp8QgHA.jpg

How to clean install drivers:

Choose “Custom (Advanced)” option, not the default “Express (Recommended)” option
Select the “Perform a clean installation” checkbox at the bottom of the screen that comes with a disclaimer below it

We also recommend PC players using Nvidia to check out this Watch Dogs 2 Graphics and Performance Guide by Nvidia for more tips:http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/guides/watch-dogs-2-graphics-and-performance-guide?ClickID=bk1fqqdkzmzgumfmudlesmgkvmusulykfgyg

If you’re experiencing some performance issues like low framerates on 4K resolution and Ultra config and texture pack on high end PCs, here is a workaround that may help some players: try reducing the render resolution. Screen Space Reflection (SSR) is very demanding on Ultra setting; players need to change SSR to very high (especially if you’re experiencing low framerate at night in the game, when it rains).

Players also need to have more than 6GB VRAM if using the Ultra texture pack. If you have a dual GPU system, both video cards need to have 6GB or more of VRAM in order to use the Ultra texture pack
