Watch Dogs: Legion crosses over with Assassin’s Creed today, adding a modern-day Assassin named Darcy to DedSec’s ranks via the Season Pass. Arriving as part of Title Update 5.5 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Darcy is accompanied by a slew of free additions for all Watch Dogs: Legion players, including new missions, new PVP modes, and the Xbox debut of Legion of the Dead, a PVE survival mode that challenges DedSec to escape a London that has been overrun with hordes of zombies.
Darcy’s new missions – Enter the Assassins and The New Creed – are free, as are two new world missions, Templar Hunt and Artifact Hunt. Season Pass owners can play as Darcy in single-player and online modes, and take advantage of unique abilities that include:
- Hidden Blade: The signature Assassin weapon, which improves melee attacks and allows takedowns from any angle.
- Eagle Drone: A scout drone that can self-destruct as well as emit a short-range electromagnetic pulse.
- AR Disguise: Assume the look of an enemy to get access to restricted locations, and apply the disguise to nearby allies in multiplayer.
Title Update 5.5 also brings two new PVP modes to Watch Dogs: Legion Online: Invasion, the fan-favorite PvP mode from earlier games, which lets players invade another player’s game and execute a hack while trying to remain anonymous. Thanks to Play As Anyone, Invasion now lets hackers swap to other characters in the world to avoid detection. The other new mode is Extraction, in which players get their hands on crypto drives and race across the city to upload the data while other players hunt them.
The single-player campaign will also add Resistance Mode, which offers a new level of challenge with game modifiers that include:
- Always-on permadeath
- Disabled Tube-station fast-travel
- Most civilians start out disliking DedSec
- Significantly longer cooldowns for most abilities, hacks, and gadgets
Finally, Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead – a co-op PvE survival mode in which up to four players try to gather resources and gear and escape London during a zombie apocalypse – is now available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S for the first time, featuring two new enemies, new weapons, and more. Near-future London is a big city, filled with adventure and danger, and starting today – whether you’re in the mood to hunt down Templars or flee from undead hordes – there’s even more new stuff just waiting to be discovered.
