Watch Dogs: Legion Online Mode Launching Early Next Month

Watch Dogs: Legion

Game company Ubisoft has recently announced that the Online Mode for video game Watch Dogs: Legion will be coming soon.

The Online Mode will be released via free update on March 9 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PS5, PC via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store, Stadia, and Ubisoft+.

The Online Mode of the game will feature the following for all players as part of the March 9 free update:

  • 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 strategise 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.

Completing any online activity will rewards players with XP to increase their rank and unlock many rewards like exclusive cosmetics and influence points to recruit more operatives or upgrade their DedSec gadgets.

Owning the Season pass will grant access to two unique single-player missions on March 9:

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.

Aside from that, Ubisof revealed that Watch Dogs: Legion has a robust post-launch plan in 2021. It will allow players to have access to future free updates like Invasion PvP mode, all-new co-op missions, and free characters. Season Pass owners can gain access later this year to extra DedSec Missions, the Bloodline story expansion, new playable heroes like Mina, Darcy, Aiden Pearce, and Wrench. Season Pass is now available for purchase or part of Gold, Ultimate and Collector Editions.

In Watch Dogs: Legion, London is facing its downfall. Amidst the growing unrest of a restless London, an unknown entity named Zero-Day has framed secret underground resistance DedSec for coordinated bombings across London. In the aftermath, criminal opportunists from every corner of London took hold and filled the void left by a defeated government. As a member of DedSec, players will be going up against those criminal opportunists in Watch Dogs: Legion; sadists, mercenaries, cybercriminals, and more; they’ll have to be prepared for a variety of situations. Players must recruit members into their DedSec Resistance to take on these criminal opportunists, liberate London and uncover the identity of Zero-Day.

Watch Dogs: Legion is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
