The Fourth of July update will be available tomorrow.
4-Player Party Mode
The free roam you know and love is back – now, from the Multiplayer App in your smartphone, two to four friends can enter into a private or public party mode. Free roam around San Francisco causing havoc, or jump into any of these activities on-demand, all of which have been balanced for the optimal amount of 2-4-person tomfoolery:
- 4-player Party: Bounty
- 4-player Party: Invasion
- 4-player Party: PvP Loot Truck
- 4-player Party: Races
- 4-player Party: Showd0wn
- 4-player Party: Robot Boss Fight
- 4-player Party: DedSec – Virus
For activities where there are roles or teams to assign, such as Showd0wn and Bounty Hunter, you’ll see a voting screen where each player can choose their role. In races, players will be able to vote on the course. Co-op missions will not be available in 4-player party mode, as these missions have been designed specifically for 2-player co-op. Also, since the 4-player party mode is for you and your friends to wreak havoc across San Francisco, Leaderboards have been disabled - though you will still receive followers and cash rewards.
Multiplayer Mode Launch
All multiplayer modes can now be launched manually using the Multiplayer app in your smartphone. No more waiting for events to spawn!
Fourth of July
Celebrate Independence Day, hacker-style! From June 29th to July 10th, find yourself a cozy spot with an unobstructed view of the Bay and enjoy nightly fireworks with your friends in the new 4-player party mode. Or, grab a group of friends and get down with your patriotic self in a flurry of red, white and blue paintballs.
Players who completed the Shuffler objective but did not receive the outfit and stealth takedown will now receive it. The outfit can be found in your wardrobe; the stealth takedown is available while wearing the outfit.
You can now skip the animation when using the 3D printer to change weapons or loadout – really useful in co-op.
