Watch Dogs Legion has added a ton of new content today – a lot of which is free for everyone! As part of a new update on PlayStation 5 and PS4, you’ll be able to recruit two new types of operative to your team: a DJ and First Responder. Both have unique abilities associated with their jobs, so the First Responder can buff teammates with a shield, for example.
Then there are five new operative abilities for you to experiment with, including Second Wind which recovers health when you defeat an enemy and Pickpocket which earns currency with each takedown you make. You can also now customise the hairstyle and tattoos of your operatives, enabling you to give them a different look.
If that’s not enough, there are three new co-op missions to complete, and two additional gadgets for you to use. These include the Point Defence Drone, which effectively allows you to summon shields for you and your teammates, as well as the Guardian Drone which will help to escort you and your allies through armed areas.
Finally, if you own the Season Pass then you’ll now be able to play as a hero character named Mina Sidhu both online and offline. She has some unique abilities, including Mind Control, effectively allowing you to infiltrate enemy strongholds using her psychic powers. And Swipe Right, a new single player mission, is also now playable in its entirety.
That’s a lot of content, and Ubisoft’s not done: new multiplayer features and the previously announced Bloodline expansion are all scheduled to release later this year. And, of course, as previously reported: a 60 frames-per-second update is coming for the next-gen version at some point in the future.
From what I've heard about the game it'll be like putting lipstick on a pig.
This game could do with having its entire story and every characterisation permanently removed. Adding more is the last thing this game needs.
I’m just gonna wait until it’s really cheap and all the DLC is released. 2 was good, this might probably be worth a few quid just to wander round London.
Haha, I kinda appreciate how they're leaning more into the wacky aspects, which is probably what they should have done from the start.
@nessisonett If you get this to wander around London, make sure you wear a virtual stab-proof vest.
Just like in real life.
I don’t get the hate this game gets. I played through the story and while it gets a bit tiring towards the end I enjoyed it enough. Stuck with the same few operatives throughout the whole game. I’ll give the online mode a go when it’s more fleshed out. I always liked infiltrating other people’s games.
This is coming from someone that hated WD2 and the no kill crap
London is a great set piece but the gameplay of Watch Dog Legion is repetitive and I couldn't care less about the characters.
That's nice, now if only they would fix those darn broken trophies that would be really nice
@Boucho11 Im just not big on Ubisoft games i cant remember one in the past generation i really need to play. Ubisoft games are mediocre games plus the liveservice part is not for me.
I will play this at some point but with the poor reviews it has received its not high on my list 😏
Il go back to it once the bloodline dlc is out. I got the season pass as i believed the original watch dogs that came with it would be a native ps5 version. Ah well
Looks like I'm going back to London mate.
@Flaming_Kaiser I hear ya. They can definitely be hit or miss. I love AC origins but hated odyssey and haven’t liked watchdogs other than this one. I was hooked on Valhalla but lost interest at the 100 hour mark 😳
Waiting on the aiden pierce and wrench dlc
Well at least Unisoft threw us a bone but we are all waiting for the season pass content, why did they even announce a season pass if they can't deliver?
this game was pretty good IMO. I ended up paying about $25 CAD for it after sale and trade in so can't complain.
So I'm actually a fan of the franchise . I really liked 1 and 2 . I picked this game up on sale almost out of a werid obligation, that being said i still haven't taken it out of the package. I m curious though is this part of the mainline series? Or is this an off shoot? I'm not a a fan (on paper I guess seeing as I haven't experienced it yet ) of the a ability to switch between all these characters. I only ask becuase this one hasn't been numbered , not that that necessarily means anything anymore but still has any one come across any news of there is or going to be an actual numbered sequel to 2 ? I personally haven't come across anything but maybe there was a story I missed .
I've had this game installed on PS5 since launch but I still haven't even played it at all as I've been so heavily invested in playing games from my backlog as well as some new games. I agree Watch Dogs 2 was a good game and this one being set in London looks even better. It makes a change that a game's setting isn't set in America for once.
@huyi Have to agree with that. They're certainly taking their time aren't they.
Wait a minute. That image of Mina Sidhu looks familiar ...
@hypnotoad Don’t mention Ubisoft and pigs because I’m having serious Pig of Prophecy ptsd...
@Boucho11 And when your a little older with time issues even without kids i rather have games that i can finish without wasting my time.
You know with some movies when they somehow feel its good to stretch a movie out for no reason.
And in the end you think hey if you cut out all the useless filler the movie would have been finished in 2 hours instead of 3 and would have not missed anything.
