Ubisoft has announced the online multiplayer mode for Watch Dogs Legion which will come in a free update on March 9. The various modes were also detailed.
Watch Dogs Legion launched without an online multiplayer mode. While the original Watch Dogs did support multiplayer at launch, its successor opted to focus on the story mode. Legion was always supposed to get the multiplayer mode after the launch of the game and now this has been confirmed with a release date by Ubisoft.
Watch Dogs Legion online multiplayer will be released on March 9. It will be available as part of a free update that will be released on all platforms.
The online multiplayer mode of the game comes with the following different features and playable modes.
- 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.
- The first available Player-vs-Player (PvP) mode, Spiderbot Arena, where four players control armed spiderbots and compete in a high intensity free-for-all deathmatch.
Watch Dogs Legion is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series, and PC. The game was released along with the launch of the new generation of consoles and supported both of them with improved visuals and other enhancements.
