A lot of fans were quite disappointed when game developer and publisher Ubisoft launched its much-awaited sequel "Watch Dogs 2" last week without the promised seamless multiplayer feature gamers were eager to try out.

Now, after more than a week of waiting, the studio has finally enabled some parts of the feature for the current-generation consoles.

According to GameSpot, the first phase for the seamless multiplayer mode of "Watch Dogs 2" has now been enabled on the PlayStation 4 platform and was soon later added for players on the Xbox One system.

Those who wish to use the multiplayer application in the game can now jump in or invite their friends to join them in a co-op run, hack their way into another player's world, or even take part in Bounty Hunts. 

Fortunately, it seems like this isn't the final set of features that fans can expect for the seamless multiplayer mode of "Watch Dogs 2."

A statement from a Ubisoft U.K. representative read, "The development team will monitor the online stability of the seamless multiplayer features and should everything continue to run smoothly, the additional elements and final phase of seamless multiplayer will be deployed," reported Eurogamer.

"Nearby bounty targets and Prime_Eight rivals will join the player's world for them to hunt down and hack without going through the Multiplayer App in the smartphone. Players will also encounter friendly Dedsec hackers who can help them complete different Dedsec events throughout San Francisco," the spokesperson's statement concluded.

However, there is still no official word yet on the specific launch for the seamless multiplayer feature of "Watch Dogs 2," which shouldn't really come as much of a surprise considering that everything is still being tested and monitored.

More news about the official launch of the anticipated "Watch Dogs 2" feature should emerge in the coming weeks.

"Watch Dogs 2" is now available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console and will soon hit the Windows PC platform on Tuesday, Nov. 29.
