Watch Dogs 2 players have discovered something very mysterious after the latest update.

Watch Dogs 2 was patched last week, but Ubisoft failed to mention everything it added to the game when it released official patch notes.

Oh, we know the ending of Watch Dogs 2 was extended slightly, but we think that’s probably just a nod to the first Watch Dogs 2 DLC. No, something altogether weirder is going on.

As elegantly summarised by Kotaku, Watch Dogs 2 subreddit members first noticed something was different in patch 1.1 when NPC dialogue started referencing four missing teenagers.

Confirming the community’s suspicions that something weird was happening, the official Watch Dogs 2 Tumblr began feeding them clues. Shortly afterwards, players began to find new graffiti scattered around Oakland, and in these locations they could hear strange noises. Viewing the graffiti on in-game phones turned up extra clues.

I won’t spoil the good investigative work of the Watch Dogs 2 community (and perhaps your own enjoyment of the emerging story) by giving you the full details, but the new quest seems to involve a Slenderman-style urban legend.

It’s not clear whether the next step in the quest chain is to be found in Watch Dogs 2 itself or whether we’ll have to wait for Ubisoft’s social team to drop some clues, AR style. It is clear that now is a good time to return to Watch Dogs 2 and follow along, though.
