Ubisoft launched Watch Dogs: Legion last year, and now the company has announced that a free online mode will be available to all owners of the game on March 9.
This mode will be available as an update to all users on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, Stadia and Ubisoft +, Ubisoft’s subscription service. .
The third game in Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs series is set in London and has received multiple updates in the four months since its launch. The updates this time even include Ray-Tracing support for the next generation of Xbox Series X and S and PlayStation 5 consoles.
Watch Dogs: Legion Online Mode: Everything You Need to Know
For starters, Watch Dogs: Legion’s online mode will feature a 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.
Ubisoft will also offer new co-op missions for two to four players. But what seems like the most compelling proposition among all of this is the new “Leader of the Pack,” a four-player co-op, Tactical Op. This will consist of five interconnected narrative missions that are end game content. Ubisoft says players should develop strategies and communicate effectively with their teammates and ensure they have upgraded gadgets and recruited a strong cast of characters.
The Player-vs-Player (PvP) mode is called Spiderbot Arena, where four players control and battle armed spiderbots in a high-intensity, free deathmatch.
Players can complete any online activity to earn XP to increase their rank and unlock various rewards such as exclusive cosmetics and influence points to recruit new agents or upgrade their DedSec gadgets.
In addition to this Season Pass, holders will also have access to two unique single player missions on March 9. The first is called “Guardian Protocol,” where DedSec follows an algorithm that allows AI to ignore human decisions. If they don’t find it, it can be used to turn armed drones into autonomous executioners.
The second is called “Not in Our Name” and here a secret group steals DedSec’s name. Worse, they also steal information so their employer, a ruthless tabloid owner, can use it to blackmail their victims.
Ubisoft confirms in its 2021 plan that all players will have access to future free updates such as the Invasion PvP mode, all-new co-op missions and free characters. Season Pass owners will also have access to additional DedSec missions later this year, the Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline story expansion, new playable heroes such as Mina, a subject of transhuman experiments that have the ability to control the mind; Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order; Aiden Pearce and Wrench from the Watch Dogs franchise.
