Watch Dogs Legion added a new DLC character, Mina Sidhy, free additions to the campaign with new DedSec story missions and three new co-op missions for the online mode.
Mina Sidhu, a test subject whose special OMNI Optik lets her control enemies, disrupt them with a Mental Blast, or recharge her powers with takedowns. She arrives along with a new single-player mission, Swipe Right, which puts DedSec on the trail of a conspiracy to fund extremists by selling off Egyptian antiquities.
Watch Dogs Legion Title Update 4.0 also includes two new operative types for players to recruit in open-world London: the DJ and the First Responder.
The DJ’s perks include Killer Beat, which ensures shorter cooldown periods and more damage, along with a Feedback Loop ability that can stun nearby enemies. The First Responder, meanwhile, can wield a hydraulic rescue tool as a heavy weapon, and can minimize damage with their AR Medical Shield ability.
The new update also adds new five Twists, characters with the Pickpocket Twist can earn currency with each takedown, Hoarders can loot and carry more ammo. Stuntman operatives take less damage from falls, explosions, and traffic collisions; Second Wind users are granted health in exchange for quickly defeating enemies. Finally, the Wanted Twist means Albion or Clan Kelley goons will attack the operative on sight, no matter where they are.
Plenty of online content has also been added to the update; players can now tackle five additional bite-sized solo Assignments, or team up with friends for three new co-op missions:
- Meltdown, in which DedSec investigates a set of murders that point to the Clan Kelley crime family having acquired an experimental plasma weapon.
- Dysfunction, in which Clan Kelley hackers known as the Cousins are holding London’s court system hostage, and demanding the dismissal of charges against all Kelley members as ransom.
- Repossession, which tasks operatives with hunting down a cache of DedSec data drives seized by Albion before the private military can use them to locate active DedSec operatives.
Online players also have access to two new gadgets: a Guardian Drone to escort and support them, and throwable Point Defense Drones, which use drone swarms to block enemy fire.
In late June, Season Pass owners can dive into Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline, a storyline starring Watch Dogs’ Aiden Pearce and Watch Dogs 2’s Wrench. In August, they’ll also get access to Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order looking to join up with DedSec.
Watch Dogs Legion‘s new playable character is available via the Season Pass or as a separate purchase.
