Whatever your thoughts on Watch Dogs Legion at launch, you’ve got to give publisher Ubisoft credit for sticking with the London sandbox. A huge new update available today adds the first major Assassin’s Creed crossover content to the series, with free missions and quests for everyone to enjoy – including one starring newcomer Darcy.
If you own the Season Pass then you’ll be able to play the entire campaign as the assassin, who is equipped with a Hidden Blade and Dart Gun. She also has a modern deception device: an AR cloaking system which allows her to assume the appearance of other characters within Watch Dogs Legion’s world. Pretty fun!
If you’ve already beaten the campaign then there’s fresh incentive to return: Resistance mode. This hardcore addition introduces permadeath, removes fast travel, and adds longer cooldowns. You’ll also have to contend with most civilians having an active dislike for DedSec, so you’ll need to win them over before recruiting them to your team.
And then there’s the return of Invasion mode, which will see you hacking into different characters around London in order to deceive your adversaries. Extraction, meanwhile, is a brand new mode that functions a little like Capture the Flag. And finally there’s zombie co-op mode Legion of the Dead, which will be free for everyone to play as well.
So that’s a lot of content to sink your teeth into, then. Obviously, we get the impression Ubisoft has been a little bit disappointed with Watch Dogs Legion’s performance, so this may be the end of the line for the open worlder. But if you did happen to purchase the title at launch, then so much has been added over the past year or so that it’s well worth returning to.
You made a typo , *Creed
@nomither6 No I didn't!
Weakest watch dogs title. Honestly, I have been skipping it just because the setting of London is not appealing at all.
The disappointing performance is due to the absolute bonehead move of having no main protagonist. Everyone I’m hearing is saying that’s the major reason it sucks and it was near impossible to connect with the story on an emotional level
@Bamila I played it because I had nothing going on during the first part of the pandemic, but man, horrible gameplay, repetitive, way too much focus on any NPC becoming a recruit, story was horrible.
Adding AC into this game is literally polishing a turd. The series is great, but get back to WD 2...that game...wow...so much fun!
@kingbreww It was an ambitious idea, they just didn't really pull it off.
@get2sammyb so is driving your car using your feet. Probs not a good idea though is it haha 👍
I really hope the series isn’t killed because of the stupid mistakes of the person in charge made regarding the direction of this game. Because they were horrible but the game as an IP is awesome
@Bamila so you didn't even play it? Why don't you just shut up than?
A Trophy fix update would be nice Ubisoft??? :-/ + it would be COOL if they could expand London each year(I know it's would never happen) then they could do my Road eventually
Since starting over on PS5 i've liked it a lot more, the biggest issues i had what was performance issues and being visually ugly are gone on the PS5 version and so its been easier to enjoy especially as Aiden who feels like a proper character compared to the others.
Absolutely love this game, looks like Darcy will be taking over from Wrench as my go-to character. Her kit looks awesome!
@WallyWest yea it looks damn good. Still not enough to keep me coming back, I usually do one mission at a time that Jedi game has my attention right now. Will get there …
@kingbreww weirdly I feel the opposite, I’m more attached to the normal people I recruit off the street and train them and advance them to be superheroes. I also like how new protagonists are released, fun way to mix up the campaign.
@Nintendo4Sonic had friends who did and then said it's the worst time they had with a game in a long time. Enough for me to never touch it
Can’t wait to dive in tonight and stab-y, stab-y
Hope she has a drone
@Bamila it's the same with movies. The best choice is always, to build an own opinion.
I also feared, that Legion will be disappointing, but I was wrong. I spent around 50 hours total play time so far with that game and I enjoy it a lot.
It's always easy to say, something is bad. Please be fair
Beat the first two but I'm gonna wait for a deeper sale on this one.
I do hope a WD4 comes out but who knows at this point.
Still haven't bought Legion yet, waiting for $25 Complete Edition sale.
Fix trophy transfer.
I really like the open world for some virtual tourism and just a few pub fights. I never got around to finishing the story though as I had permadeath on and was usually drunk when I played it.
