Ubisoft has released the story trailer for Watch Dogs: Legion along with information on post-release content.

In Watch Dogs: Legion, Zero-Day, an unknown entity, has framed DedSec for bombings that contributed to the fall of London.

In the game, you will work to liberate London by building a resistance.

Alongside the story trailer, Ubisoft announced that the online multiplayer mode of the game will be available on December 3 as part of a free game update for all players.

The Online mode of Watch Dogs: Legion will include the following features as part of the free update:

  • Free-roam open-world co-op where players can team up with their friends for up to four-player co-op and explore the city of London and participate in side activities
  • New co-op missions for two-to-four players using new co-op gameplay mechanics and giving players the opportunity to recruit the perfect team
  • Four-player co-op Tactical Ops missions which will require teamwork and efficiency
  • The first available Player-vs-Player (PvP) mode, Spiderbot Arena, where four-to-eight players control armed spiderbots and compete in a high-intensity free-for-all deathmatch

New free content for the single-player mode will be available in a future update in 2021, and will include:

  • New characters with new abilities
  • New mission content
  • A New Game Plus mode

Additionally, players who acquire the Season Pass will get access to Bloodline, a new storyline which includes Aiden Pearce from the original Watch Dogs game and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2, fully playable in the single-player campaign and online, along with two other characters:

  • Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order, thanks to a cross-over with Assassin’s Creed
  • Mina, a subject of transhuman experiments, who possesses the ability to mind control individuals

The Season Pass will offer extra DedSec missions, the original Watch Dogs Complete Edition from 2014, and more. The Season Pass of Watch Dogs: Legion is available for purchase as part of the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector editions.
