New DLC for Watch Dogs 2 out in April

Previously planned DLC multiplayer mode will now be free for all players

Posted on

Ubisoft has announced a slight change of plans for the upcoming DLC content for Watch Dogs 2.

Showd0wn, the multiplayer mode that was originally part of No Compromise, will now be available on all platforms through a free update coming on April 17. As a result, No Compromise will now include new ability-granting outfits and vehicles, nonlethal weapons, and single-player time trials that weren’t originally part of the package.

The No Compromise DLC will be available to download for Season Pass owners, or for purchase, on April 18 for PS4 and on May 18 for Xbox One and PC, and it’ll pack in new content to replace Showd0wn. In addition to its new DedSec Operation – a multi-mission storyline addition called Moscow Gambit – it includes new single-player time trials, as well two new nonlethal weapons: the Air Shotgun (which can also move cars and other objects) and the Taser Sniper Rifle.

No Compromise also includes three new emergency services packs, with new vehicles and outfits that let Marcus dress up as a police officer, firefighter, or paramedic. Each outfit and vehicle adds a new ability that lets Marcus affect NPC behavior and do previously impossible things.

Meanwhile, pitting two pairs of players against each other, Showd0wn is an endgame challenge for experienced players. Its competitive matches come in three flavors: Steal the HDD; Doomload, a King of the Hill-style match; and Erase/Protect the Servers, a Watch Dogs twist on classic domination matches. Spread out across 15 locations, these modes will flow seamlessly from one to the next, with dynamic hacking, shooting, driving, and puzzle-solving challenges.

Showd0wn isn’t the only new feature being added in the free update: The drone, motocross, and eKart races are also getting multiplayer functionality complete with leaderboards. New, randomly appearing “loot truck” events challenge you to hack an armored car while fighting off its reinforcements, and smaller additions – including new clothing items and tweaks such as a quick-swap feature for weapons – are rolled into the update as well.

Watch Dogs 2 was released last year on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
