Content Updates For Watch Dogs: Legion Comes To An End

Games with a live service model, such as Watch Dogs: Legion, have their drawbacks…

 

Watch Dogs: Legion, also known as Watch Dogs 3, has added new multiplayer modes, characters and story DLC called Bloodline since its release. The DLC’s protagonist hails from the windy city of Chicago, and we might know him better by his name: Aiden Pearce, who was the protagonist of the first Watch Dogs almost eight years ago. But the game has reached an age where Ubisoft is no longer expanding…

The last new multiplayer season of Watch Dogs: Legion, Stripes, is still happening as planned, but after that, the multiplayer segment will go into a “post-support” mode, which means that the third, fourth, fifth season of the game will be on repeat until Ubisoft shuts down the game’s servers, because that will happen one day (as the French publisher won’t keep the servers up forever, it’s just not possible).

“The current season 4 Rebels track, containing 80 ranks, will run until January 22, 2022, followed by Season 5 Stripes. After that, Seasons 3-5 will continue to cycle and return to the game, allowing you to acquire rewards you might have missed out on in the past. Some rewards to look forward to are a modified version of Aiden Pearce’s jacket and Jackson’s mask and clothing set,” Ubisoft says on its website.

The first two parts of Watch Dogs were mainly single-player. Still, with the third instalment, the French company has branched out a bit towards live service, so from that point of view, the support for more than a year is not so poor, but perhaps it also shows that the game has not sold as well as Yves Guillemot would have expected. (And the company also seems to jump on fads quickly – see NFTs, i.e. Ubisoft Quartz.)

So Ubisoft puts Watch Dogs: Legion on a ventilator. Put your hand up if you’re surprised…
