“We’ve been inspired by multiple depictions of zombies in popular culture” – Watch Dogs: Internet Legion Director Jean-Pascal Cambiotti
Judging by the available gameplay footage, the goal of Legion of the Dead mode is pretty simple: play as a team, find stock packs, and reach the extraction point. By the way, players must use their abilities and ammunition wisely because a horde of zombies will chase them through the streets of London.
Speaking about the thought process and creative vision of the mode, Watch Dogs: Legion’s online director Jean-Pascal Cambiotti had to say:
“I think there’s something essentially fun about playing zombies, other than the instant gratification of destroying them. We were inspired by multiple depictions of zombies in popular culture, and in the game we decided to make zombies slower but more deadly. them into established Albion plans as you sneak in and save your precious ammunition for another fight. “
In this mode of play, players have more tactical and team responsibilities because they are forced to trust each other in order to get it out of the game.
A few validated abilities that will be available when the regime begins on June 1 are:
- A swarm of bees
- AR cloak
- Combat Spider-Bot + turret
It is unclear whether the DLC is free or players have to pay to access new content that will fall on June 1st.
