[Update: According to Eurogamer, the patch released on October 29 has resolved this issue. Xbox One X players should now be able to enjoy the game without worry.]
Watch Dogs: Legion is the latest game released today, but it seems to have been literally over-covered on the Xbox One X. Several reviewers have reported that the pre-release version of the game overheated the console and shut it down. And prevent them from taking the story further.
This was the case Eurogamer Ubisoft told its website during a game review that the patch will be released on October 30th. It’s tomorrow, so if you get the game on Xbox One X, it’s potentially a good idea to postpone it for a day. Avoid trouble. You can also reduce system troubles.
This issue occurs early in the campaign and forces a shutdown to cool the console. Call of Duty: Other certain games, such as Modern Warfare and Borderlands 3, had problems shutting down the Xbox One X, but these were a bit random by comparison.
EGM’s Michael Gorov I had a problem with overheating, but it didn’t happen on the standard Xbox One. There was a frame rate issue, but it didn’t shut down.
For The Guardian’s Keza MacDonald, the Xbox didn’t turn on for hours after the problem occurred. She said she talked to some other people reviewing games that had similar issues on the platform because the Xbox One X was Ubisoft’s recommendation.
I’ve been playing Watch Dogs Legion for a few days and, like the few other reviewers I talked to, ran into a serious bug that caused the console to brick for hours on the story content. We’ve postponed the review until the patch is applied, but we recommend that you haven’t purchased it yet.
