Watch Dogs feature 3

The original Watch Dogs gets a must-have high quality texture pack

Modder ‘Parallellines’ has released a new HD Texture Pack for the classic Watch Dogs game that replaces over 320 textures. According to the modder, these are the source-quality textures, ranging from two to four times the vanilla dimensions.

As said, this pack replaces/overhauls over 320 textures. These textures include:

  • Vegetation
  • Main character faces and clothing
  • NPC faces and clothing
  • Particles such as smoke, fire, sparks, blood and explosions
  • Decals such as bullet holes
  • Water effects
  • Vehicle chassis and tires
  • Weapons
  • Lens flares
  • Clouds

You can download this HD Texture Pack from here. Here is also how you can install it.

Join the Watch_Dogs Modding Discord and download the Gibbed.Disrupt Tools from the #resources channel (or preferably the updated version pinned in the #wd1_releases channel). You’ll also need to install this in order to unpack the vanilla patch.

  1. Unpack your patch.dat from data_win64 by dragging it to Gibbed.Disrupt.Unpack.exe.
  2. Extract the graphics folder to the newly created “patch_unpack” folder.
  3. Rename the “patch_unpack” folder to just “patch” and drag it to Gibbed.Disrupt.Pack.exe.

In theory, this pack should be compatible with the Natural & Realistic Mod, as well as the Living City Mod.

Lastly, you can find below some comparison screenshots between the vanilla (left) and the new (right) textures!
