Watch Dogs 2: come for the hacking, stay for the surprisingly detailed full frontal nudity. I’m sure that’s what Ubisoft had in mind, at least, but it seems like that dream is all but at an end.
See, it turns out that if the digital streets of San Francisco are good for one thing, it’s accurate depictions of male and female genitalia on NPCs.
You’ll want to get your fill while you can however (I won’t judge), since Ubisoft apparently intend to patch this nudity out entirely – just days after launch. Way to stick to your guns, guys.
It all started when it was discovered that we can eyeball all the boobs and dicks we want, but sharing screenshots of any nudity over the PlayStation Network prompts Sony to step in and ban users for breaching the PSN ‘code of conduct’.
Now to be fair, it is indeed in Sony’s code of conduct that we can’t capture or share particularly explicit images, but Ubisoft quickly responded by saying they’ll patch the game this week so players can share whatever they want – very much implying that ‘particularly explicit’ nudity is on its way out the door.
NeoGaf user Goron2000 recently wrote a post detailing an encounter in Watch Dogs 2 that ended with the ‘accidental’ blowing up of a few women in a back alley.
He was shocked to discover a fully rendered vagina on one of the women, and had his account suspended by Sony for sharing the image. As I know you’re probably curious, you can find said vagina here, but it really is NSFW.
Oh, and in case you were thinking this was one cheeky hidden vagina, it really wasn’t.
YouTuber Servan Demir recently posted a video of himself encountering a small hippie colony, where he discovered a a fully-naked woman playing with a hula-hoop. You can watch here (NSFW).
Ubisoft then told Kotaku that it believed Goron2000’s discovery was ‘particularly explicit’, explaining:
While Watch Dogs 2 is a mature-rated game, we apologise and will update this NPC model to make it more consistent with other NPC models in the game in a patch to be released this week. We also are working with our first-party partners to ensure that players can continue to play and share all content from the game within the bounds of the first parties’ respective codes of conduct.
So I guess that’s that for Watch Dogs 2 explicit nudity. Now, a moment of silence for the dude who has to spend the next few days patching out realistic dicks and vaginas.
