Ubisoft revealed its post-launch plans for the upcoming Watch Dogs Legion including an Assassin’s Creed character. We already know about the Aiden Pearce character coming soon after launch. For those who don’t know, he was the protagonist in the original game. However, players can expect some new exciting things in the game which will arrive in the months ahead. Before we start, make sure to check out our recent hands-on preview with the game here.
First off, Ubisoft shared details on the Watch Dogs Legion co-op and PvP modes. The developer plans to activate co-op soon after launch. This means players can explore the streets of London with up to four players. Here they can participate in co-op specific events, missions and even take on challenging dynamic events. Best of all, Ubisoft is adding a Raid-like mode to the game called Tactical Ops. These four-player missions require teamwork and great efficiency.
Then there’s the PvP mode which is called “Spider-Bot Arena”. The mode sees eight players control spiderbots as they jump around, shoot each other and try to destroy as many opponents as possible.
The Invasion PvP mode is also back in Watch Dogs Legion. Players can hack other players and try to evade them as they download data and escape without being seen. The mode seems similar to past games and we are okay with that. It was hella fun. Ubisoft claims these are the first of many PvP modes to arrive in the game.
When it comes to the main game, Ubisoft says they plan on releasing new characters with new skills and abilities as well as free missions too. Lastly, the season pass is where the big content is coming from. The first story expansion called Watch Dogs Legion: Bloodlines follows Aiden Pearce from the original game. He is joined by Wrench from Watch Dogs 2 who is also a fully playable character. However, Wrench is not the only new character in the expansion. Bloodlines come with four new characters. Aiden Pearce, Wrench, Mina, a telepathic lab test and Darcy, a member of the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. We don’t know much about her but she looks pretty cool.
