Tourists returning to Watch Dogs Legion’s futuristic reimagining of London have been disappointed to learn that the title’s new online mode lacks crossplay – and even cross-generational play. This means, if you’re playing on the PlayStation 5, then you can’t even partner up with players on the PS4 – let alone Xbox platforms and PC.
For many, this is disappointing, as their friends may yet to have sourced PS5 stock – or even own a PlayStation at all. Fortunately, publisher Ubisoft is on the case. “While currently not available for Watch Dogs Legion online mode, the development team is working on adding crossplay and cross-generation-play to the game with a later update,” the French company revealed on the game’s social media account.
Many titles support crossplay now – you can find a list of All PS5 and PS4 Crossplay Games through the link – and it’s become an important feature not only because it’s a more convenient means of playing with friends and family, but also because it helps to bolster the playerbases of games with smaller communities. This leads to faster matchmaking times and fuller lobbies.
It sounds like the open worlder’s online mode launched a little hot, as it’s missing its Tactical Op due to Ubisoft discovering a bug at the last minute. The firm’s said that it’ll be updating and expanding upon what it’s already offering over the coming months, so don’t give up on DedSec just yet – it sounds like this feature will just need a little bit of time to properly find its feet.

I'll be real with you, I completely forgot about this game.
This game online fun?
Can this game be played Offline, or is Online required?
@JustPlainLoco you need wi-fi to play it like with Immortals fenyx rising. I think ubi's doing the whole "Games as a Service" thing so you need internet
@Jackpaza0508 - Thanks, at least I know now to avoid it.
I'm just waiting for the season pass content ro be released before I play this.
In themeantime the original Watch Dogs has been keeping me busy. Surprised how many players are still online
You can play this game offline of course, like a normal single player game.
I don't know why Jackpaza told you can't.
@kohiba99 - Ah okay thanks for clearing that up
