404 Mission Xbox Glitch Watch Dogs Legion

The 404 mission in Watch Dogs Legion has a game-breaking bug that makes completing the game completely impossible, as we’ve already said. And just how funny is it that the name of the mission is 404? That’s too good to be true. Unfortunately, it’s painfully true for all Xbox players. The quest happens some six to eight hours into the main campaign. At one point, your Xbox One X will throw up a notification that it’s going to shut down due to overheating. It will promptly do so, because, well, that’s what it’s supposed to do.

Now, the bad news is that there’s no fix or workaround for this problem. The Watch Dogs Legion 404 bug on Xbox is here to stay for the time being. On the “bright” side, the developers are aware of the issue and are working on repairing it. The patch planned for November 30th will supposedly get rid of this bug. I know, I know, that still means that your copy is effectively unplayable for two more days, but that’s just how things are. If you know of any fix for this problem, let us all know in the comments below.

The 404 mission bug on Xbox doesn’t seem to affect Watch Dogs Legion on other platforms. That’s not to say that the PlayStation 4 Pro version is without its own problems and freezes and whatnot, but you can fix those by, at worst, restarting your console. There’s no coming back from the 404 thing. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
