Ubisoft is cooking up another large, free update for Watch Dogs 2. The main focus is on a bunch of new content, including weapons, outfits, missions, map locations, online modes, and missions. However, the main draw will certainly be the four-player party mode, allowing you to mess around the Bay Area with up to three friends. The update will go live on July 4th for all platforms.
A new update for Watch Dogs 2 is on the horizon, as announced on Ubiblog. It will launch on July 4th, and it will bring a ton of new content to the game. The main draw is the addition of a four-player party mode, where you’ll be able to free-roam the Bay Area with your friends. Producer Kris Young had a few words to say about it:
It’s something we’ve been thinking about for a long time. It’s always more fun to be in a team, and the online modes we have are great, but we really wanted to expand on them. We also pay attention to what our community is saying, and it’s something they’ve been clamoring for, so we’re happy to finally make it available to everyone.
It works pretty simple. You can make either a private or public party, and you can either bring in three friends, or use matchmaking to bring in strangers with matchmaking. After you form your party, you can just do whatever the hell you want. You can explore freely or participate in any of the online activities you like. Young says:
The cops will be there. You could try to take down the Red Zones. Everything that’s in the city of San Francisco will be there, so you can immediately have some fun exploring San Francisco with four people. Then, at any time, you can launch the activities that support the 4-player Party – Bounties, Invasions, Loot Trucks, Races, Showd0wn, Man VS Machine Robot Fights, and the DedSec Virus events are all available for you to have fun with.
The update will also bring in some free stuff, such as new weapons, gear, vehicles, online modes and locations. There’s also some DLC stuff in there, like the T-Bone content bundle, Human Conditions DLC and No Compromise DLC. You can check out the update trailer below.
