Ubisoft has just put out "Watch Dogs 2," the sequel to its really popular open-world hacking game "Watch Dogs." A huge, vast game like that with so much freedom for you to play with will have its own shares of myths and urban legends about it.

DefendtheHouse, a YouTuber who has a knack for busting myths in a lot of different video games, just put out the first video in a long series debunking and confirming many rumors about "Watch Dogs 2." If by "myths" you're thinking of crazy stuff hidden in games like "Grand Theft Auto 5," you're a little mistaken. The myths involved are just testing different gameplay mechanics to see whether they work.

For example, one of the "Watch Dogs 2" myths DefendtheHouse tests out is whether jumping into water from any height would save the character from fall damage. It turns out that this particular myth is true, and a couple of others are as well. But since the game is huge, the video he just put out is only the first in what seems to be a long series. DefendtheHouse has also put out myth busting videos for games including "Overwatch," "Fallout 4," and "Tom Clancy's The Division," according to GameSpot.

In other "Watch Dogs 2" news, Ubisoft is doing a little damage control to its public relations after it was discovered by a player that one NPC character had explicitly rendered genitalia. The story, which was reported by Polygon, saw that particular player gets banned by Sony from the PlayStation Network after sharing the screenshot. Ubisoft will be releasing a patch to fix this particular peculiar problem, and also possibly finally fixing the problematic multiplayer mode.

GameSpot's review of "Watch Dogs 2" finds that the game is pretty good, and it should be even better once multiplayer finally works. "Watch Dogs 2" is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right now, and will be coming to the PC on November 29.
