Watch Dogs Legion just got a whole lot better. The hacking-focused third-person open-world game received a major update a few days ago. Title Update 4.5 was released on all platforms and it brought tons of new content. The update was somewhere between 16 to 39GB in size depending on the platform and is necessary if you want to play the Online Mode again.

TU 4.5 brought a brand-new Tactical Op, Project Omni. In this mission, you will band with three other players and stop a mad doctor who is messing up with people’s Optik devices. A more detailed explanation is mentioned below.

Several QoL changes are made as well. New consoles will now support a 60 FPS performance mode. Cross-play for the same console family has been enabled too. Xbox One players can now play with Xbox Series X|S players and PS4 players can now play with PS5.

Two HUD display presets are added to the game. “Light” preset will turn on a few HUD elements, whereas, “Immersive” preset will only allow the most important information on the HUD. A new operator, Helen is also added and she will be available on June 15. You can grab her at the Premium Store for free.

A new zombie mode is also introduced to the PC version, which is detailed over here.
