As per our review of Watch Dogs: Legion one of the problems with its seemingly limitless supply of AI created characters you could recruit and control throughout its campaign was an overall lack of attachment in line with the series. Case in point, the endearing cast of Watch Dogs 2 was missed.
As part of a sizeable 'Update 4.0' we're getting a new playable hero character called Mina Sidhu. And she looks awesome, as seen in this overview of Update 4.0. Though it basically looks like Mina has... magical supernatural powers. Hopefully it's all explained away Star Trek style with technical made-up speak.
Title Update 4.0 introduces exclusive content for Season Pass holders in single-player and in the online mode of Watch Dogs: Legion, including:
A new playable hero character, Mina Sidhu: Once a test subject, Mina Sidhu now wields the power of mind control and can take full control of an enemy with her Mind Control Device, the OMNI Optik. She is also equipped with a Mental Blast that can disrupt nearby enemies.
A new DedSec Stories mission, Swipe Right: In this new single-player mission, DedSec discovers that someone in London is conspiring with an Egyptian minister to sell off the country’s antiquities, with the money going to fund violent insurgents.
The update also adds a variety of free content to both single-player and the online mode, including:
Single-player campaign & Online Mode
2 new Operatives: the DJ & the First Responder
Operative Customization: players can customize their Operatives’ hair and body art
5 new Operative abilities
Pickpocket: Operatives can earn currency on each takedown
Second Wind: Operatives quickly regain health when defeating enemies
Wanted: Albion or Clan Kelley enemies will attack upon detection anywhere in London
Hoarder: Operatives can loot and carry more ammo
Stuntman: Operatives take less damage from falls, explosions and collisions with vehicles
3 Co-op Missions:
In “Dysfunction,” a pair of mysterious Clan Kelley hackers, known only as the Cousins, have laid London’s court systems low in a DDoS attack, demanding as ransom the dismissal of all cases against Kelley family members.
In “Meltdown,” Clan Kelley has killed four Tidis employees at Southwark Incinerator. Bagley believes Clan Kelley has bought an experimental plasma weapon, which has a half-life so short it’s only detectable in a body for a short time after death.
In “Repossession,” Albion has a cache of data drives belonging to the original DedSec, and they plan to use the drives to pinpoint the location of active DedSec Operatives.
5 new solo Assignments
2 Co-op Gadgets:
Guardian Drone: A Tidis Guardian Drone that escorts and supports nearby Operatives
Point Defense Drones: A throwable device that deploys a cloud of drones to block incoming fire
Although limited to Season Pass owners, additional heroes coming will be tapping into Ubi's history. June will see the arrival of Aiden Pearce from the original Watch Dogs and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2 -- both of which like Mina will be fully playable in the campaign and online. Where it gets a little strange is in August when Darcy, a member of the Assassin Brotherhood from Assassin’s Creed, joins DeadSec.
