Ubisoft has informed that Watch Dogs: Legion’s online modes will receive crossplay and cross-generation-play in the future update. A user asked about the cross-gen play of the game, and he got a reply from the official Twitter account of Watch Dogs: Legion, “while crossplay and cross-generation-play are currently not available for the Watch Dogs: Legion Online Mode, the development team is working on adding this feature to the game with a later update.”
In the last week, when Watch Dogs: Legion’s online mode was launched for consoles, the PC version still is delayed for an unknown time due to some issue which did cause the game to crash for computers with certain GPUs.
The Tactical Operations will be made available on March 23 after a delay. Until then, PS4 and PS5 players will have to face “limited in-game text chat.”
IGN wrote in their preview of Watch Dogs: Legion’s online co-op modes, “The co-op missions remind me a lot of Assassin’s Creed Unity’s approach to friendly multiplayer, in that they are effectively identical to the fare you find in the main campaign, just redesigned with more participants in mind.”
In the review of Watch Dogs: Legion, IGN said its “bold use of roguelike mechanics in an open-world action game pays off in interesting ways, making this visit to near-future London feel more varied than the previous two games.”
It will be much interesting to see how people react when this update goes officially live. It’s still not clear that when the Watch Dogs: Legion is going to add cross-play support, but we know that it’s coming very soon.
