Many Watch Dogs 2 fans report they can’t install the High-Resolution Texture Pack on Uplay. The pack promises to put your graphics card to work, but many players can’t seem to get it to work.

The role of the Hi-Res Texture Pack is to enhance the level of detail found in the game to deliver a higher fidelity experience.

Gamers can’t install the Watch Dogs 2 Hi-Res Texture Pack on Uplay

Yeah. Same here. Got the Uplay version, no Hi-res texture pack. Although it says I got it, it’s saying “not installed” but there’s nothing to activate it though.

Other gamers believe this package shouldn’t be downloaded on Steam because “Steam does absolutely nothing except launch UPLAY then just sits running in the background doing absolutely nothing. So congratulations on make a game that already has it’s own DRM, now require a second DRM for absolutely no reason at all.

Some gamers also suggest that Uplay users should try downloading the High-Resolution Texture Pack from the DLC tab of the game launcher, not from inside the game menu.

As a quick reminder, you’ll need to have more than 6GB VRAM available if you want to use the Watch Dogs 2 High-Resolution Texture Pack. If you have a dual GPU system, both video cards will need to have 6GB or more of VRAM.

Ubisoft confirms that the High-Resolution Texture Pack should be available for all Uplay users. As stated before, there are many Watch Dogs 2 players who still can’t install the pack on their computers.
