Watch Dogs: Legion's first free update brings an online mode and new co-op missions

By Heidi Nicholas,
Watch Dogs: Legion will have a fair amount of post-launch content, and Ubisoft has just detailed what's to come after the game is released later this month, including new characters, missions, an online mode, and an Assassin's Creed crossover.


First up on December 3rd, as a free update, comes the online mode for up to four player co-op, with new missions for co-op play, as well as dynamic events. Tactical ops will also be added with more four-player missions for co-op strategy. The game's first PvP mode, meanwhile, will be Spider-Bot Arena, where up to eight players control spider-bots in a fight to the death. Sort of like if Robot Wars had a bigger budget. Spider-Bot Arena is the only PvP mode detailed so far, but Ubisoft confirms there are more PvP modes to come. Invasion, a mode from previous Watchdog games, is also returning.

The main campaign will also have a fair few free updates, including new characters with new abilities, new mission content, and New Game+. The Season Pass, meanwhile, will introduce four new playable characters. One has already been announced, as the story expansion Watch Dogs: Legion — Bloodline continues Aiden Pierce's tale. Also to be added is Watch Dogs 2's Wrench, Mina, a character who can use mind control, and, in a crossover with Assassin's Creed, Darcy from the Assassin's Order. The Season Pass also adds three DedSec stories and a DedSec car skin. Ubisoft followed all of this up with a new story trailer, which you can watch below:

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
