Ubisoft has announced a release date for the ambitious multiplayer mode planned for Watch Dogs: Legion.
The multiplayer mode for is set for a March 9th release across its current platforms: PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X+S, PS4, PS5, and Google Stadia. Previously, the multiplayer mode was delayed from its original December 2020 release for one sometime this year.
Once live, the multiplayer mode for Watch Dogs: Legion will let players join up with friends and hack virtually anything in the city – including things like drones, cars, security cameras, and more. The mode was originally delayed so Ubisoft could push updates out for the single player game.
You can find an abridged rundown (via the official website) below.
WELCOME TO THE RESISTANCE
BUILD A RESISTANCE AND FIGHT BACK.
Mass surveillance, private militaries controlling the streets, organised crime… Enough! It’s time to end oppression. Recruit a well-rounded resistance to overthrow the opportunists ruining this once-great city. The fate of London lies with you.
PLAY AS ANYONE
ANYONE CAN BE YOUR WEAPON
Every Londoner has a reason to fight back. Explore the open world to find your next recruit. Each character is fully playable, has their own backstory, personality, and skill set — all of which comes into play as you personalise your team and choose the right operatives to best confront the challenges ahead.
TAKE BACK LONDON
SHOW THE CITY WHAT YOU’VE GOT.
Explore a massive urban open world and visit London’s many famous landmarks – including Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Camden, Piccadilly Circus or Whitechapel.
PLAY YOUR WAY
OR EXPERIMENT WITH PLAYSTYLES.
Tackle missions choosing from a wide range of weapons, a brand-new melee system or stealth abilities. The way you approach combat has real consequences. If you use non-lethal force, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest you. If you shoot to kill, you risk having your characters permanently killed.
GET THE GANG TOGETHER
BRING YOUR FRIENDS INTO THE MESS.
Giving London back to the people doesn’t have to be some heroic solo jaunt, ya know. Bring the fight online to join forces with up to three friends as you take on entirely new co-op missions and challenging end-game content.
