Ubisoft Releases Major Patch for Werewolves Within

Earlier this month Ubisoft published Red Storm developed cross-platform title Werewolves Within. Offering a simultaneous launch on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR, Werewolves Within is a pure multiplayer videogame, and now the first patch has arrived to improve the gameplay experience.

The patch doesn’t add any additional features merely fixing a load of bugs that players on each of the three systems have found. Most of them also seem to be the same issues for each head-mounted display (HMD), for example a bug that prevented an eighth player from joining a match has now been fixed, or the mic not working on joining a match.

An online multiplayer party title for between five to eight people, Werewolves Within is set in the small medieval town of Gallowston.  Players are randomly randomly assigned roles and abilities, with one of these being a werewolf. It’s up to the other players in the group to utilise the skills of their characters, along with a guidebook with hints, and the power of persuasion to assess each other. Each round is played quickly, assigning players new roles every time, mixing up gameplay.
