Ubisoft Reveals Watch Dogs Legion’s Microtransaction Details

Just like many AAA titles that have been released recently, Watch Dogs: Legion will also have DLC, a premium pass, as well as in-game microtransactions for those players who are willing to spend money.

Previously, Ubisoft revealed that the upcoming title will have an Assassin’s Creed DLC. Now, the company’s latest announcement has to do with Watch Dogs: Legion’s microtransactions and how they will work in the game.

Based on the information Ubisoft revealed, the title’s in-game store will feature additional cosmetics such as skins, operatives, and even new masks for the characters to wear.

For those who haven’t dedicated themselves to following news and updates regarding Watch Dogs: Legion, you’ll be happy to know that the title is turning into one of the most highly-anticipated games to be released this Fall.

The title has an optional permadeath feature, which gives players not only a decent amount of variety but it provides an increase in replay value of the game as well.


Ubisoft has confirmed that players can purchase Watch Dogs: Legion’s season pass for a one-time fee. However, you have other options as well i.e. the pass is also included in the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s editions of the title if you prefer purchasing one of these instead.

As mentioned, Watch Dogs: Legion will also feature its own in-game store where players can use real-world currency to buy in-game credits. According to Ubisoft’s website, additional cosmetics and operatives will be available on the game’s premium store and can be bought using WD Credits.

The exchange rate, on the other hand, costs $1 for 100 WD Credits. Ubisoft also adds a disclaimer on its website saying that if you do decide to buy extra operatives via microtransactions, doing so won’t give you gameplay advantages compared to the regular ones you get to recruit in the game.

The statement goes on to say that the “gameplay abilities, traits, and weapons can be found on other Londoners around the city.”


Among other things, Ubisoft also mentions that there’s an alternative way to obtain another in-game currency called ETO, which can be used to purchase clothes, vehicle paints, and much more.

ETO can also be purchased on Watch Dogs: Legion’s in-game store through microtransactions, but it’s also possible to earn this currency for free by progressing through the game’s main storyline, replayable activities, as well as side quests.

From what we can see on the numerous Watch Dogs: Legion teasers and trailers, there’s a wide variety of operatives to choose from with an assortment of masks and outfits. So, it’s safe to assume that the options for character customization in this upcoming title will be extensive.

Gamers would normally get annoyed and/or frustrated by microtransactions, which is becoming more and more common in games these days. However, the good thing about Watch Dogs: Legion’s microtransactions is that they don’t seem to be intrusive to your gameplay.

There are so many things to look forward to in Watch Dogs: Legion, and thankfully, excited fans don’t have to wait too long as the title is set to release this October 29.
