The add-ons will include both free and paid-for content, the latter will be available as part of the season pass. The first piece of free content will drop on December 3, which adds multiplayer to Watch Dogs: Legion.
In multiplayer, groups of up to four will be able to free-roam London and take part in a variety of side activities and events. There will also be co-op missions and Tactical Op missions, both of which will require teamwork and communication to succeed.
PvP also will be added, a series first. The mode is known as Spider Bot arena and will pit four to eight players in a free-for-all deathmatch, controlling a variety of spider machines. Single-player is also expected to receive free post-launch content in the form of new characters with new abilities, new missions and a new game plus mode.
In addition, players who purchase the season pass will be entitled to a new expansion titled Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodlines. The new content is expected to drop sometime in 2021 and will include protagonist Aiden Pearce from the original game, and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2. The storyline can be played through either in single player or online co-op.
