Video: Watch 15 minutes of Watch Dogs Legion online gameplay
Ubisoft confirms multiplayer launch for March
Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion‘s online mode will launch on March 9, 2021.
VGC recently had the chance to play the multiplayer mode and you can watch 15 minutes of edited footage via the video on this page.
The online mode includes free-roam open-world co-op for up to four players, new co-op missions for two to four players, four-player co-op Tactical Ops missions, and Spiderbot Arena, a free-for-all deathmatch mode for four to eight players.
It will reward players with XP to level up and unlock rewards including cosmetics and influence points to recruit new operatives or upgrade gadgets.
The game’s online mode was originally scheduled to arrive as part of a free update in December 2020 but was delayed so that Ubisoft could focus on fixing issues with the single player game.
Ubisoft says Watch Dog Legion will include the following online features:
- 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
- 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
Watch Dog Legion Season Pass holders will also gain access to two new single-player DedSec missions on March 9.
Guardian Protocol tasks players with finding an algorithm that could allow AI to override human decisions, while Not in Our Name features a secret hacker group stealing DedSec’s name and information to blackmail targets.
