Online mode coming to Watch Dogs: Legion in March
The delayed multiplayer component will be released via free patch
Ubisoft has announced that the online mode for Watch Dogs: Legion will be available on March 9 for all owners of the game via a free update. The mode was originally planned for launch late last year.
The online mode offers 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. There are also new co-op missions for two-to-four players using new co-op gameplay mechanics.
Also included is 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. The first available Player-vs-Player (PvP) mode, Spiderbot Arena, will also launch where four players control armed spiderbots and compete in a 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.
Watch Dogs: Legion is available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5.
