The world of Watch Dogs: Legion is about to get a little more crowded, as Ubisoft opens it up to multiplayer and co-op play. Starting now, existing players on last- and next-gen consoles will be able to access the newly-added online mode, which has been added to the base game for free.
With the launch, individuals can form a team of up to four to explore London, complete challenges, and participate in side activities, while executing fresh co-op mechanics to fight back against threats and recruit the ideal team. Those looking to scratch that player-versus-player (PvP) itch, meanwhile, are privy to the Spiderbot Arena, a brawling location where player-controlled armed spiderbots duke it out with one another in a four-versus-four, free-for-all deathmatch.
Season Pass owners will receive two exclusive single-player missions as well. The first, Guardian Protocol, sees DedSec tracking down an algorithm that shows AI overriding and threatening the human decision process, with the second, Not In Our Name, pitting the organisation against a secret group who uses stolen information in the former’s name for blackmail.
More content will be added in due time, with PC players expected to receive the mode very soon on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store. No specific date has been announced yet, but one thing’s for sure: the first Tactical Op, Leader of the Pack, is set to hit consoles first on 23 March 2021, so owners better start rounding up their most reliable companions – teamwork and efficiency will be the key to victory for this.
