Watch Dogs Legion Multiplayer Could Feature A "Larger Player Count"
The multiplayer in Watch Dogs: Legion is apparently looking to grow larger than before.
Developer Ubisoft Toronto has opened up about Watch Dogs: Legion, saying its online multiplayer mode is eyeing a "larger player count."
As part of Game Informer's cover story, the team at Ubisoft Toronto confirmed that four-player cooperative play will be in the game when it drops this October on PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One. In addition to talking about the expected multiplayer mode, GI's in-depth profile revealed that a "larger player count" for Watch Dogs: Legion was teased. Details about this mode remain scarce.
Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2 featured plenty of multiplayer modes, with the 2016 sequel getting more sophisticated with its offerings. Instead of just eight-player competitive and cooperative multiplayer, Watch Dogs 2 allowed for players to battle one-on-one, two-on-two, asymmetrically (with multiple going against one), and more. And both titles featured seamless connectivity; Watch Dogs: Legion is expected to continue that seamless online multiplayer offering.
We were able to go hands-on with Watch Dogs: Legion recently. Associate editor Michael Higham discussed his thoughts on the latest Watch Dogs entry, saying the preview build "offer[ed] a variety of playstyles, and it's pretty damn impressive how well it [all worked]."
Watch Dogs: Legion is slated to drop on October 29 for PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One. It will also launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when those consoles come out this holiday season.
