Watch Dogs 2 has received several free updates since its launch last year, with the DLC released so far bringing new missions, weapons, outfits, vehicles, map locations, and online modes. The next free update, which releases on July 4, promises to be the biggest online update yet, and finally brings the new and long-awaited 4-Player Party mode.
It’s something we’ve been thinking about for a long time. It’s always more fun to be in a team, and the online modes we have are great, but we really wanted to expand on them. We also pay attention to what our community is saying, and it’s something they’ve been clamoring for, so we’re happy to finally make it available to everyone.
Players can start a public or private party with room for up to four players. From there, the party is free to explore San Francisco and take down red zones. At any time, players can launch the activities that support the 4-player Party, which includes Bounties, Invasions, Loot Trucks, Races, Showd0wn, Man VS Machine Robot Fights, and the DedSec Virus events.
In addition to the 4-Player Party mode, the latest update will also include some slight fixes and improvements to make the experience of playing with others a little smoother.
To celebrate this new update as well as the Bay Area’s rendition of Independence Day, Watch Dogs 2 will also hold a special in-game event during the month of July that includes fireworks displays over the city of San Francisco and a festive change to the paintball gun that makes it shoot red, white, and blue pellets.
Watch Dogs 2 is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
