Superhacker Aiden Pearce might use the latest technology to fight bad guys in the video game “Watch Dogs,” but the game itself is a a long way from cutting-edge, especially in terms of graphics. When it was released last month, fans noticed that the game actually looked worse than it did in demonstrations at the E3 2012 video-game expo.

Now a modder, or game modifier, called TheWorse has released a mod,  or modification, that restores the PC version of “Watch Dogs” to some of its apparent former glory. How does it work? Fans had previously discovered that the files that enabled the higher-quality graphics seen at E3 were still buried, inactive, in the game’s software.
