Watch Dogs Legion‘s so far elusive, and once delayed, online multiplayer mode finally has a firm release date and is set to arrive in just a few short weeks on March 9. With Ubisoft’s commitment to releasing games on virtually any platform under the sun, the Watch Dogs: Legion online multiplayer mode is free for all owners of the game on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, and as part of the Ubisoft+ subscription.
Four Watch Dogs: Legion Multiplayer Modes
Carrying the Watch Dogs: Legion multiplayer are four modes, which, as Ubisoft describes below, allows players to cause even more chaos in the game’s post-Brexit, dystopian version of London.
-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. Five interconnected endgame narrative missions, 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.”
Additionally, ticking off activities in the Watch Dogs: Legion online mode earns players XP, boosting their in-game rank and unlocking a trove of rewards from cosmetics to precious influence points used to enlist new operatives and better their gear. To find more about each mode, including what went into bringing the online multiplayer to life, Ubisoft’s penned a wordy news piece.
Lastly, the Watch Dogs: Legion March 9 update also brings with it a pair of single-player missions for Season Pass holders. Dubbed Guardian Protocol and Not in Out Name, they’ll have players track down a potentially lethal algorithm and a rogue group passing themselves off as DedSec.
