What’s new in title update 4.0 for Watch Dogs Legion

Ubisoft posted all of the content coming with the new title update over on their forum page. The headlining addition is that players will be able to create private lobbies for co-op missions when they are trying to queue into an online lobby.

Beforehand, when queueing into an online mission the game would automatically fill the other spots with randomized players from all over the world. Now, this issue has been fixed, and players are free to matchmake with their friends.

New operatives are also one of the main additions for this title update, as Ubisoft has added two for fans to check out. DJ and First Responder are the latest operatives enlisted into the Watch Dogs arsenal, and they each have their unique abilities.

DJ will have the ability to stun nearby enemies while also having a reduced cooldown and increased damage when close to enemies. While First Responder will be able to use a Hydraulic Rescue Tool which is essentially a melee weapon, and they will also be able to limit the damage with their AR Medical Shield.
