Watch Dogs: Legion post-launch content features an Assassin's Creed crossover character

By Heidi Nicholas,
There's quite a lot of post-launch content planned for Watch Dogs: Legion, including new characters — one as an Assassin's Creed crossover — an online mode, new missions, and more.

The online mode arrives as a free update on December 3rd, bringing co-op missions for up to four players, and dynamic events. Four players can also team up for co-op play on tactical ops. Ubisoft has said there will be several PvP modes for Watch Dogs: Legion, but so far, the only one we know about is Spider-Bot Arena, where eight players take control of spider-bots and battle them to the death.

Watch Dogs: Legion features several throwbacks to earlier Watch Dogs games. The Invasion mode will be returning, and two of the four playable characters coming with the Season Pass are from previous Watch Dogs titles: Aiden Pierce is the protagonist of story expansion Watch Dogs: Legion — Bloodline, while Wrench from Watch Dogs 2 will also be added. The other two playable characters are Mina, who has mind control abilities, and Darcy, who arrives from the Assassin's Order as a crossover with Assassin's Creed. The Season Pass also adds three DedSec stories and a DedSec car skin.

Free updates for the main campaign, meanwhile, include new characters with new abilities, new missions, and New Game+. Ubisoft also released another story trailer for Watch Dogs Legion, outlining the conflict between DedSec, Zero Day, Albion's private army and Mary Kelley's criminal syndicate:

Watch Dogs: Legion launches on October 29th.

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!
