Watch Dogs: Legion Launches its Online Mode Next Month Alongside Free Update

Ubisoft has announced that the online mode for Watch Dogs: Legion will be available on March 9 via a free content update.

This update will be available for all owners of the title across Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, the Epic Games Store, the Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, Stadia, Amazon Luna, and Ubisoft+, Ubisoft’s subscription service.

The online mode that will come with the free update of Watch Dogs Legion boasts the following features:

  • Free-roam open-world co-op where players can team up with their friends for up to four-players, 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 allow players to recruit the perfect team and fight back against London threats across the city’s most iconic landmarks.
  • “Leader of the Pack,” the first four-player co-op Tactical Op, will require teamwork and efficiency. It’s made of five interconnected narrative missions: endgame content made for players 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.

Players will earn experience when completing any online activity, which will increase their rank. Increasing rank offers a greater variety of cosmetic rewards and influence points to recruit new operatives or upgrade their DedSec gadgets.

Additionally, owners of the Season Pass will be able to play 2 additional missions when the free content update drops. The 2 additional missions are as follows:

  • Guardian Protocol:
    DedSec tracks an algorithm that could allow AI to override human decisions. If they don’t find it, it could be used to turn weaponized drones into autonomous executioners.
  • Not in Our Name:
    A secret group is stealing DedSec’s name. Worse, they’re also stealing information so their employer, a ruthless tabloid owner, can use it to blackmail their victims.
