Watch Dogs Legion Update Will Add Online Multiplayer This March

Ubisoft has announced that its popular third-person action title, Watch Dogs Legion, will receive its long-awaited online multiplayer update this March.

Watch Dogs Legion is the third title in the Watch Dogs franchise and sought to revolutionise the open-world action-adventure genre with its “be anyone” mechanic. The game was well-received, but fans have been waiting for its online multiplayer since it launched back in October of 2020. Well, Ubisoft has put to bed fan’s fears it may never arrive, with an announcement that the update will launch this March!

By taking part in any of these riveting online activities, players can earn XP to increase their rank and unlock various rewards. These include exclusive cosmetics and influence points to recruit new operatives or upgrade their DedSec gadgets! The free updates don’t stop here, though!
