While waiting for Season 5 Vol. 1 of “La casa de papel” to stream on Sept. 3, Watch Dogs: Legion Online players can already get their “Money Heist” fix in a new, free co-op mission based on the popular Netflix series. Released in 2020, the action-adventure game Watch Dogs: Legion is the third installment in Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs series.

Playable with up to three other friends, this Watch Dogs: Legion Online mission called “Paperless” lets players don the series’ signature Salvador Dalí masks and red jumpsuits to execute a crypto heist at the Bank of England. Don’t worry, you’re stealing from the bad guys.

DedSec Resistance

Clan Kelley forces have taken over the bank and are storing millions of counterfeit ETO on the network. Sneak into the bank, disable the firewall, download the crypto, and make your escape across the Thames. Once completed, an exclusive skin for recruits will be unlocked.

Meanwhile, Ubisoft has also announced that Watch Dogs: Legion will be available to play for free from September 4-6 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC. Players will have access to the single-player campaign and online mode.  

New players will be able to pre-load the game on Sept. 2.  The Free Weekend will be available from Sept. 4-6.

In the aftermath, criminal opportunists from every corner of London took hold and filled the void left by a defeated government. As a member of DedSec, players must recruit members into their DedSec Resistance to take on these criminal opportunists, liberate London, and uncover the identity of Zero-Day.
