More On: Watch Dogs: Legion

In a press release today, Ubisoft outlined the new online multiplayer modes coming to Watch Dogs: Legion on March 5. These new modes will be part of a free update, available to all players. This is, of course, in addition to the already awesome single player game. 


There is a ton of content coming to Legion, which was already a large and detailed game. Here are the basics:

  • 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.

Completing any activity will earn players XP, which will increase their rank and unlock cosmetics, points to recruit new operatives, and gadget upgrades. 

Season Pass holders also get two new single-player missions. And later this year, even more stuff will be added to Legion - including extra DedSec missions, the Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline story expansion, 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. That's a lot of Legion headed our way.

Watch Dogs: Legion is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Stadia, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Amazon Luna, and on PC in the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store.
