Ubisoft is gearing up for the October 29 release date for Watch Dogs: Legion and this week dropped a new story trailer and unveiled plans for post-launch content that includes online multiplayer, new characters and more.
The post-launch content includes new single-player missions and will introduce online play for Watch Dogs: Legion, which will be patched into the game on December 3 with the first content update for the game.
The Online Mode for Watch Dogs: Legion will include the ability to freely roam the game’s open world in co-op with up to four players, new co-op missions using new co-op gameplay mechanics, four-player co-op Tactical Ops missions and access to the Spiderbot Arena, a PvP mode where four to eight players control armed spiderbots in a free-for-all deathmatch.
In 2021, developers said players can expect new missions, new playable characters and a New Game Plus mode.
Developers reminded players that season pass holders will get access to the Bloodline story expansion, which includes Aiden Pierce from the original Watch Dogs and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2, and announced two new characters: Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order, thanks to a cross-over with Assassin’s Creed, and Mina, a subject of transhuman experiments, who possesses the ability to mind control individuals.
Additionally, season pass holders will receive the definitive edition of the first title in the series, Watch Dogs: The Complete Edition.
Watch Dogs: Legion is set to launch on Oct. 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia. The game will launch Day One for the Xbox Series X | S on November 10 and digitally on PlayStation 5 on Nov. 12. The physical version of the game will release for PlayStation 5 on Nov. 24. It has also been confirmed to launch on Amazon Luna when the Ubisoft channel launches.
