Watch Dogs: Legion free weekend starts tomorrow – Leader of the Pack multiplayer update now live

Ubisoft has announced a free weekend trial for Watch Dogs: Legion, with the London-based hacker ’em up free to play across PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Stadia from 25th March to 29th March. Additionally, the game is going on sale for 50% off, and a fresh update has rounded out the much-delayed online multiplayer content with the first Tactical Op.


Leader of the Pack is the first Tactical Op for Watch Dogs: Legion, a co-op mission that’s designed for those who have reached the end of the game. The difficulty is set quite high as DedSec uncovers a hive-mind AI designed for Urban Drone Warfare.

This comes after the already delayed multiplayer modes suffered a stuttering launch in early March. The PC multiplayer was delayed in its entirety as Ubisoft uncovered critical issues, and the Tactical Op was pushed back on console as well.

Ubisoft has also released a revised roadmap for the game’s future updates. In late-May, there will be two new PvP modes – Extraction and Invasion – and a new Tactical Op called Project Omni.

Season pass holders will see Mina added to the game, featuring a new mission to go alongside the mind-controlling experiment in transhumanity. Late June will see Aiden Pearce and Wrench join the game in the new Bloodline storyline, and Darcy from Assassin’s Creed will appear in an August update.

The free trial weekend will let you try out the entire game for the next few days, but if you want to keep it, there’s 50% off on all storefronts. Both Standard and Ultimate editions are half-price on Xbox, PlayStation, Ubisoft Store, Epic Games Store and Stadia, while there’s 50% off the Gold edition al PC and Staida, and 25% off the season pass on all but Xbox. Who knows why that is…

In our Watch Dogs: Legion review, Miguel wrote:

Watch Dogs Legion is a different type of sequel to Watch Dogs 2, contrasting in its approach to creating a hackable open world playground, but with no less impressive results. Playing as any citizen in London leads to some less-than-engaging story moments, but the web of relationships and activities that crop up as a result of the systemic design is mind-blowing. I rarely did the same thing twice in Watch Dogs Legion, and if I did, I wasn’t doing it the same way twice. Watch Dogs Legion truly feels like a living, breathing world, and it’s a world that I plan to revisit often, even though I’ve seen the credits on the main story roll.

  1. Hmm. Tempting. But by the time I get around to finishing AC Valhalla, it’s probably be on sale again for less.

    Also, I’m confused by the different versions. The “ultimate” edition has the season pass, the original game, and some extra bits, but the season pass contains the expansion and the original game and those extra bits. So somehow you get 2 copies of all the extra stuff that isn’t the expansion? I think they should have phrased things a bit differently in the descriptions.
