2020’s Watch Dogs: Legion has finally been tweaked to perfection — which means only one thing moving forward: multiplayer is en route. That’s right, Ubisoft will be releasing the online mode on March 9th on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. All you need to patch up your copy is Watch Dogs: Legion and a nifty chunk of space on your hard drive. After that, you’re all set to branch out and tear down the streets of London. Again.
So, what can we expect from Watch Dogs: Legion online? Well, luckily for us players, Ubisoft has sent out a press release stating all of the multiplayer threads — all of which compile a pretty neat package. Of course, the open-world will still very much be a huge portion of the experience. And you can rest assured that everything that makes the hack-and-slash (get it?) game awesome will still be present. It’s just that, well, you’ll be able to enjoy the world with a team of friends, too.
Ubisoft announced the updates for the March 9th patch…
- 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 have 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.
So, while London will soon be able to house a buddy or two of yours, you’ll also be able to tuck into a whole series of co-op games as well. As mentioned above, it looks like all the familiar multiplayer courses will be finding sanctuary in Legion. But we’ll settle for just being able to toy with traffic and hack ATMs together, to be fair. Or, you know, just go for a pint at a local pub and play chicken with a spiderbot. Either way, we’re expecting a whole barrel of fun once the next patch drops.
You can pick up Watch Dogs: Legion on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. Just be sure to stick around for the online patch next month. London is about to get a whole lot bigger, that’s for sure.
