Watch Dogs: Legion Online Mode Unleashes a New Co-Op-Fueled DedSec on London
Watch Dogs: Legion launches its free online mode on March 9, giving players the chance to race their friends through the streets of London, take on a variety of intense new cooperative mission types and challenges, or pull together a band of buskers to meet by the Tower Bridge for an impromptu riverside performance. And if you’re feeling less harmonious, you can always go toe-to-toe in a round of darts, or blast the skittering legs off each other in Spiderbot Arena, a new PVP mode. Here’s everything you need to know about the online mode of Watch Dogs: Legion.
The first thing you’ll notice is that online mode exists as a standalone option from the main menu, and when you load in, you’ll be set up with a new Operative and tasked with building a new DedSec cell. online mode takes place after the events of the main campaign (though it contains no story spoilers), so you’ll once again be able to recruit anyone you come across in the open world of London. However, the recruitment process is streamlined, allowing you to instantly recruit folks by spending Influence points.
This change was made not only to expedite recruitment for the online setting, but also to adapt the Play As Anyone philosophy to the cooperative experience, says Lathieeshe Thillainathan, live producer on Watch Dogs: Legion.
“Having a dedicated space for the online mode allowed for that kind of freedom,” says Thillainathan.
