The PC Version is Still Delayed Indefinitely, Though
The wait is over… for most of us, anyway. Watch Dogs: Legion is finally getting a multiplayer online mode for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Stadia today, but PC players will have to wait a little longer thanks to an unfortunately-timed glitch. Finally, Legion can truly live up to its name… and players can finally drag all their friends along on missions to watch and laugh when they screw up. The online mode is provided at no additional cost to those who have already purchased the game, which is pretty awesome of Ubisoft. This trailer shows off some of the great graphics, mechanics, and co-op benefits you can expect to encounter in your playthrough.
Online mode features include:
- 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’s threats across the most iconic landmarks of the city.
- 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.
As if that weren’t enough, two new single-player missions are also being released today to anyone who owns the Season Pass. In Guardian Protocol, you’ll be tasked with tracking down an algorithm that proves AI can occasionally override the decisions made by humans. The press release warns that: “If this algorithm was to be used in weaponized drones… they would have power over life and death.”
In Not In Our Name, DedSec will stumble across a secret group using their name in London, but this new DedSec is working under a ruthless tabloid owner to steal information, blackmail notorious people, and gain power over the city. Needless to say, you’ll have to do something about it.
