The new mode will allow you to create teams of up to four players so you can explore the virtual futuristic London with three of your friends. Of course, the game will also be introducing new co-op missions and tasks you and your companions can tackle together, including a mode called Tactical Op, which features a chain of five missions and serve as endgame content for more experienced players.
Aside from co-op missions, the multiplayer patch will also introduce the game’s first PVP experience in the form of a Spiderbot Arena. Four players can join the battle, controlling weaponized spiderbots in a machine-on-machine deathmatch.
As expected, the more you play and progress, the more experience points you’ll gain, allowing you to rank up and unlock all kinds of rewards within the online mode. Ubisoft also says that more characters, co-op missions and PVE gameplay will arrive through free updates later this year.
For those interested, the online multiplayer mode for Watch Dogs: Legion will arrive March 9.
