Watch Dogs Legion received a significant update just recently, which added an online multiplayer mode to the game. That’s a huge post-launch content drop, and if you’ve been wanting to try it out to see what the fuss is all about, you’ll get the perfect opportunity this weekend as Ubisoft has announced a limited-time free trial weekend from March 26-29, with preloads available on the 25th.
Players across all platforms where Watch Dogs Legion is available will be able to try out the game, specifically until the “Skye Larssen Mission” in the story campaign, as well as the online mode, with all your progress carrying over should you choose to purchase it after the trial period ends. PlayStation and Xbox players will need their corresponding PS Plus or Xbox Live subscriptions to access the online mode.

Additionaly, Ubisoft has revealed the post-launch content for Watch Dogs Legion, which includes:

Working with a whistle-blower, DedSec uncovers a deadly initiative that brings the next level of hive-mind based AI on Urban Drone Warfare.
