Looking for the Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer release date? If you’re keen to jump into Ubisoft’s open-world game with pals, the co-op feature isn’t currently available in Watch Dogs Legion, but it is coming at some point, eventually.
The free updates feature new missions and dynamic events designed for co-op play. You’ll be able to play alongside three other friends online, making up a squad of up to four players to take on the sprawling London streets and Tactical Ops special missions, which are dedicated multiplayer missions to test your team’s communication skills.
For those that don’t want to work together to take down the villains of Watch Dogs Legion, there’s also a PvP mode coming called Spiderbot Arena, where up to eight opponents control armed spiderbots in a free-for-all deathmatch. Although this is the first PvP mode, the return of cat and mouse game, Invasion, is also planned for a future update.
Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer release date
The PC version of Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer has been postponed indefinitely. This is because of “an issue in the PC version that can cause the game to crash for players with certain GPUs”. These crashes may be the ones that both Jen and Dave experienced during a recent Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer preview event.

It’s not the first time that Watch Dogs Legion’s multiplayer has been delayed on PC. All other platforms – Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia – will be able to play the multiplayer mode from March 9.
However, in the same statement delaying the PC version, Ubisoft mentioned that the Tactical Op mode has issues on the other platforms as well, meaning that it won’t be coming to the Xbox, PlayStation, or Stadia versions until March 23. At the time of writing, it’s unclear if the Tactical Op mode for the PC version will face a similar delay.
The online mode was originally due to release on all platforms on December 3, 2020, however Ubisoft delayed the rollout while it worked on addressing major single-player issues.
You can check out what we thought of the online mode in our Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer preview. Although it was pretty buggy when we played it a month ago, both Jen and Dave describe the chaotic fun of the upcoming mode, “We do make it through the entire co-op playlist, eventually, and the way Ubisoft has adapted Legion’s puzzles and gameplay to suit multiplayer is impressive when it works.”
