Ubisoft announced the multiplayer Watch Dogs Legion which had to be postponed until early 2021. Even though this game has been launched since October 29, 2020 yesterday.  Initially, Ubisoft planned a co-op or multiplayer feature not long from launch. Namely around December 2020. However, it had to be postponed for some time.

As reported by Eurogamer.net, Ubisoft was forced to postpone the presence of the Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer mode because there were technical problems that had to be resolved first. However, this problem occurs in single-player mode, so the developer of this game must solve it first before launching the co-op.

This well-known game developer also needs more time to internally test this online co-op model. And make sure it can be smooth when it is launched later. Unfortunately, Ubisoft cannot confirm the launch date of this new feature. The Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer is only reported to have arrived in early 2021.

In addition, it was also not disclosed in detail what technical problems they had to solve first. Even so, it is suspected that there is an update to solve the crash problem. Some Watch Dogs Legion players have complained about crashes several times when playing in the single-player model. Will this problem be tackled first?

In a post on its official website, Ubisoft announced that there will be a new update that will optimize the PC version.

On the other hand, this new game from Ubisoft did get a lot of praise when it was launched. Included in the gameplay concept offered is very different. When you play Watch Dogs Legion, you can recruit almost all NPCs in this new game as playable characters. But there must be a special effort to be able to do it.

Meanwhile, the Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer mode itself is one of the features to look forward to. Because it allows several players to play together to complete the mission. For those of you who are interested in this new game, Watch Dogs Legion is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

When we buy a game on the PlayStation Store, there will be a lot of terms and categories in it, where when I first entered the PSN Store I was confused because of the many new terms. This has sometimes happened until now, where when I want to buy a game that is very cheap because there is a discount, when it’s already purchased, I know it’s just a DLC or not a base game. From here, maybe I will try to summarize these terms to make it easier for all my friends to understand.

Full game: Full Games, this is a complete base game, which can be played immediately with full content, the Full game category can be available in digital form (at the PSN Store) and most of them are also available in Retail * / blue-ray (BD) form / cassette. (*not always)

PSN Games: Just like Full games, PSN Games are also games that can be played directly and are full, but usually PSN games were initially only available in digital form only with no physical tapes. For example Guacamelee, ShovelKnight, Resogun etc. * not always some PSN games over time sometimes there are also physical BDs.

PS VR Game: This is a special game that can only be played if we have a PS VR, PS Move and PS Camera device. Games with the PS VR Game tag usually have a physical form, and some are only available at the PSN Store. This PS VR Game also sometimes has other additions to the game title with the words PlayStation VR Required. For example Batman: Arkham VR, Blood & Truth, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, Astro Bot Rescue Mission etc.

PS VR Compatible: Games with this tag can usually be played using normal PS4 without having to use PS VR, PS VR is only an optional device that we can use to play the game from a first-person perspective. Examples of games are Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Tekken 7, Gran Turismo Sport, Resident Evil 7 etc.

PS VR App: Usually an application that is used to enjoy content that is supported by PS VR. Like the PS VR application that is used to watch basketball matches, there is also Youtube VR which can be compatible if the video we are watching supports a VR device etc.

App: This is usually a support application to enhance the PS4 experience into a more media Entertainment System, or social media Apps on PS4 such as Netflix, Hulu, SHAREfactory, Spotify, Twitch etc.

PS One Classic: Usually this is an original game from PS1, where the graphics still use PS1 graphics, and can usually be played on PSP, PS vita and PS3. Keep in mind that games that have this tag cannot be played on PS4. Examples such as CHRONO TRIGGER, Suikoden II, Xenogears etc.

Bundles: Bundles usually contain a base game along with some of the DLCs that we can buy in one package, so we buy directly including some of the DLCs. Game bundles and game titles usually include additions such as Deluxe Edition, GOTY Edition, Complate Edition, All-In-One Package, Ultimate Edition, etc., which indicates that the game is not a standard version. But in some cases, a bundle can contain a collection of several different games, and even different developers. Examples: Nioh 2 Deluxe Edition, Marvel’s Spider-Man Game Of The Year Edition.

Game: I found this term in several titles, it just seems the same as the meaning of Full Game, the difference is the Game tag I pay more attention to the games for PS Vita.

Okay, let’s move on to the next category, which this time needs to be paid attention to, we need a base game to be able to use or use this content, usually the price is cheap, sometimes we are fooled into buying it, and it’s just DLC content that can’t be played. Or sometimes it turns out to be only for PS Vita / PS3 Games for which we don’t have the console.

Add-on: This add-on is additional content / DLC from a general base game, the add-on can contain cosmetic content from the game, this add-on can be a new character, clothes, weapons, accessories, arena etc. We need a base game to be able to use this add-on, and it is usually sold separately.

PS VR Add-On: This is an add-on content specifically for PS VR compatible games.

Level: This is a DLC in the form of a level, arena, new difficulty level, additional story or an extension of an adventurous base game. * Not necessarily adventure

Map: This DLC is usually an additional map of the game with a new layout, usually found in FPS type games, or battle royals. But it’s not only always a map, sometimes there’s a story. A new stage in an adventure game, or a new route in a racing game.

Item: This is also a part of the DLC that is more specific in the form of an item, a certain accessory. This item in some RPG games can add a certain status so that it will make our adventures easier in the future.

Vehicle: this is a specific DLC in the form of a car / motorcycle that is usually found in racing games. It can also be paint, car parts, car stickers etc.

Music Track: This is also part of the specific DLC in the form of an audio track, a certain band song that is usually found in games with rhythm music types.

Character: This is part of a specific DLC in the form of a new character / additional character, most often in fighting games or adventure games. Usually in the Fighting game there is a roster of early players who come out when the game is first released, then the DLC of new characters begins to be added along with time.

Costume: This is a specific part of the DLC in the form of a costume for a certain character in a game. This costume usually changes the appearance of the characters we play, in some costume games it can also add certain status increases to the game.

Subscription: Usually in the form of a subscription to a service on PSN, usually in the form of PS +, PS Now, EA Play etc. Subscription we usually get free games every month for PS + and for EA Play we can play all the games from EA, if PS Now is almost similar to PS +, only PS Now provides streaming PS3 games services, but also provides around 350 games that can be used download.

Avatar: This is usually a logo, symbol or character image that will present our personality if our avatar is seen by others. Avatars can be taken from a certain game that we can use on the PSN ID profile photo, this avatar can also inform us that we like the character or game.

Season Passes: Usually this is an additional service provided when we buy a game, which will provide a free DLC within a certain period of one season (season), for example there is a game Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions which has a season. The pass is priced at 399 thousand, the game will issue DLC once a month at a price of 75 thousand per DLC for 6 months, if we buy each DLC every month it will come out 450 thousand, while if the season pass is only 399 thousand, usually the season pass This applies to new games where we don’t know the value of it or not, the DLC will appear in the future.

 

Pre-Order: This term is used to buy an unreleased game. This is intended to prove our support for a game developer, or to prove our love for the games we pre-order. So we pay for the game first, it could be a month or 6 months earlier. Usually for pre-ordered games we get exclusive bonuses such as character DLC, weapons, clothes or certain art work that we can only get from the pre-order of the game.

Demo and Betas: Demo is a game that we can play for free first, before we decide to buy the full game. There are two types of demos, demos that only consist of 1-2 Stages from a game, and demos that are limited by time, for example, you can only play it for 60 minutes. Beta itself is a trial conducted by the developer before releasing the game on the market. The goal is usually to check the load from the online server they use, for online type games, or to provide feedback if there are bugs in the game, which bugs can be reported to the developer and later in the game release there are no bugs. the.

Soundtrack: Usually a collection of Music Tracks that are used in a game. Because some games have good soundtracks, developers usually sell separately, so they can be listened to separately without having to play the game. An example is the Nier Automata Soundtrack which has very good song quality.

System Audio Track: This audio track is usually the dub of a game. Some RPG type games are very conversational, sometimes there are users who choose to listen to the dubs of real artists who use Japanese, and some others prefer dubs from foreign artists using English. Because the audio dubbing file is large in size, developers usually provide operations and can be downloaded for free.

Themes: This is a theme that we can use to change the display interface of our PS4, so that we don’t get bored. We can get themes for free and some are paid. Every big game is released, they usually issue a free theme so that the games played are synchronized with the theme of the PS4. There are also two types of themes, Static which is only a Static image, and Dynamic which is a moving image, so that it looks more beautiful.

Apart from this, all that really needs to be paid attention to again is about the subtitles of the game, usually if PSN Store Indonesia uses the Asian region, there will be several languages ​​in it. Usually after the title there will be a big writing like this (English / Chinese / Korean / Japanese Ver.) Which indicates that the game has English subtitles. This is considered trivial, but yesterday, during PO Final Fantasy VII Remake, there were many incidents of friends on the PS4 Indonesia forum wrong ordering POs where only Mandarin was available. I have also found this at a discount, for example this game The lost Child at a price of 38 thousand, is very tempting, just pay attention that there are no English subtitles, only Mandarin. There are some games that only use Japanese and at a much cheaper discount, we have to be more careful in buying games digtal.
