The online mode for Watch Dogs: Legion is out on March 9. It’s coming for all owners of the game via a free update on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Stadia.
The online mode of Watch Dogs: Legion includes the following features for all players as part of the March 9 free update:
- Free-roam open-world co-op where players can team up with their friends for up to four-players and explore London, encounter city events, complete challenges and participate in side activities.
- New co-op missions for two-to-four players using new co-op gameplay mechanics and giving players the opportunity to recruit the perfect team and fight back against London threats across the most iconic landmarks of the city.
- “Leader of the Pack,” the first four-player co-op Tactical Op which will require teamwork and efficiency. It’s made of five interconnected narrative missions which are endgame content, made for players who are seeking a challenge. Players will need to strategize and communicate effectively with their teammates and ensure they’ve upgraded gadgets and recruited a strong cast of characters.
- A Player-vs-Player (PvP) mode, Spiderbot Arena, where four players control armed spiderbots and compete in a high intensity free-for-all deathmatch.
By completing any online activity, players will earn XP to increase their rank and unlock various rewards such as exclusive cosmetics and influence points to recruit new operatives or upgrade their DedSec gadgets.
Season Pass holders also have access to two unique single-player missions on March 9. They are:
DedSec tracks an algorithm that could allow AI to override human decisions. If they don’t find it, it could be used to turn weaponized drones into autonomous executioners.
Not in Our Name
A secret group is stealing DedSec’s name. Worse, they’re also stealing information so their employer, a ruthless tabloid owner, can use it to blackmail their victims.
Coming Later This Year
Additionally, all players will have access to future free updates such as Invasion PvP mode, all-new co-op missions, and free characters. Season Pass owners will also have access to extra DedSec missions and the Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline story expansion.
Plus, Season Pass owners get new playable heroes such as Mina, a subject of transhuman experiments who possesses the mind control ability; Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order; Aiden Pearce and Wrench from the Watch Dogs franchise. The Season Pass is available for purchase as part of the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector editions.
