Watch Dogs Legion is doing an Assassin’s Creed crossover with its DLC

Watch Dogs Legion has plans to keep its bash the fash action alive long after it launches, and like any game coming out of Ubisoft, that’s not exactly surprising news. The first big addition will be a free December 3 update that adds up to four-player co-op for certain missions and dynamic events, while Tactical ops will provide a more serious challenge with missions that require that require a full squad and feature complicated objectives to achieve.

Oh and there’s going to be a PvP mode called Spiderbot Arena in which up to eight players can control death-robot spider-automatons that come loaded with guns in a winner takes all deathmatch. Game of the year material already. Invasion mode from previous Watch Dogs games is also going to be making a return, in which you can infiltrate another’s player’s game and hunt the buggers down so that you can steal all their delicious information.

Paid DLC

Yup, there’s going to be some premium content to purchase as well! Available either on its own or as part of the season pass, the Bloodline DLC will star Watch Dogs the first’s bland protagonist Aiden Pearce and Watch Dogs 2’s more colourful character Wrench, detailing what the hacktivists have been up to since they were last seen. They’re still on a mission to hack the planet, and they’re more than happy to join DeadSec’s London branch to test out a few new abilities in England’s not so merry capital.

The real treat here though, is that Watch Dogs Legion will have an Assassin’s Creed crossover. The Assassin Brotherhood’s member Darcy will make an appearance, bringing a few stealthy skills to the mix. It won’t be canonical to the current Assassin’s Creed timeline though, so think of Darcy’s backstabbing appearance as a multiverse cameo instead.

That DLC has a vague 2021 release date, but for more on the game, you can read Gavin’s surprisingly positive preview on it.

  1. Yeah, I don’t know. This game has no Identity. It’s really weird. From the first one which was actually not bad to the second one that tired to remove itself from the first one and now this one which seems not to have a protagonist. The narrative space in gaming is really weird of late. Doom guy works because he is a nameless entity that just runs around with a shotgun and chainsaw and gets shit done….son.

      The first one is still the best. I didn’t enjoy the second one as much and the new game is coming out at a time where I don’t think this sort of messaging is going to be liked by many gamers. I’m tired of hearing about the protests in the US. I didn’t care about what happened to George Floyd and I still don’t. A small group of black activists wanted to destroy statues in my city and they were laughed at.

        I disagree, I think the messaging is way better than the previous ones and the people against populist authoritarians is greater now than over the last few years.

        People are bored or incompetent corrupt leaders and this fits into that quite well.

        But not every game is for everyone I guess

          What we’re seeing is a very vocal and very destructive minority. They don’t have the support of the normies and that was clear from when they went to the suburbs.

            Maybe not where you live but in my area they have the support of the majority by far.

            People were cheering really loudly when the statue was dumped in the bay as well 🙂

            They tried to tie a rope around a statue near where I worked and they were chased from the park all the way to the subway. It was very funny. Maybe dutch people are just more educated than the british?

      Isn’t that typical of nearly ALL Ubisoft games?
      After Ezio, has there been a standout character in that series? Not really
      After Vaas, has any haracter really captured games in Far Cry? I honestly don’t think so.
      Aiden may have been a bit sterile but there was room to grow.

      Personally I just feel like Ubisoft games are the same with different settings and genre.

      AC games could have been the new-age Splinter-Cell, but instead they decided to make them generic do everything go anywhere A-RPGs. Far Cry games, if we’re honest haven’t changed since Far Cry 3. Watch Dogs is much younger series so we’ll have to see how it develops

        I think they’re excellent world builders but they tend to struggle with characterisation. They get so close to creating iconic characters but then they just keep on dropping the ball.

        The Vaas in the trailers and what the character was in FarCry 3 are two different animals, and the same could be said about the Family in FarCry 5, or Pagan Min in FarCry 4. I don’t know why they keep on dropping the ball like this. It’s become a bit of a meme, because you know that their characters are going to be bland. And, it’s the same for their “hero” characters too. They hold so much promise, and they’re usually on point with the voice acting, but the characters just seem so… limited…

        They’re either horribly bland (probably to be inoffensive and appeal to the broader public) or completely forgettable. Take the hero character in the Crew, beardy hipster guy… I just wanted that character to die in a fire.

        I hear the characters in Assassin Creed Odyssey are different, but I’ve been burnt out by Ubisoft more often than not.
