Update 4.5 for Watch Dogs: Legion brings 60fps to PS5 and Xbox Series, along with a ‘Legion of the Dead’ mode

Watch Dogs Legion update 4.5 is now live on all platforms, and brings a much anticipated 60fps performance mode for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.

The update also includes other free content across single-player campaign and online modes:

  • Tactical Op 2: Project Omni is an intense and challenging mission which will require players to strategize with their team of four to infiltrate a secret project to find out why Londoners’ Optik devices are negatively affecting their brains.
  • A free download of everyone’s favorite gran, Helen (available June 15).
  • Cross-gen play.
  • New Free Reward Track, with outfits, weapon skins, and more.

Another part of the Watch Dogs Legion 4.5 update brings “Legion of the Dead”, which is a brand-new online PvE mode currently in Alpha phase on PC. Watch Dogs Legion of the Dead delivers a rogue-lite experience where players will have to “Survive-as-Anyone” against the looming threat of the undead and hostile living roaming the re-imagined fallen city of London. In solo or up to four friends in co-op, players will need to strategize on how to reach the extraction point for each run and gather as many supplies as possible along the way. Players can use abilities such as the Bee Swarm to decimate enemies, the AR Cloak to escape threats, and a Combat Spider-Bot equipped with a turret for protection.
