Ubisoft is adding a new zombie mode to Watch Dogs: Legion, but it warns that it’s still in the alpha stage.

Did you ever look at Watch Dogs: Legion, a game all about ordinary people coming together to form a team of super hackers and liberate London from a totalitarian-like organisation, and wish it had zombies in it instead?

Then you are in luck because Ubisoft has announced that not only will the game receive zombie themed DLC titled Watch Dogs: Legion Of The Dead, it’s coming out tomorrow on June 1.

Ubisoft revealed the DLC as part of an IGN exclusive, complete with a 20 minute demonstration of it in action. Basically, players must gather supplies and reach an extraction point to escape the now zombie-riddled streets of London.

It can be played solo or with up to four players and is described as a rougelite, meaning it’ll have elements from roguelike games, such as Hades or Returnal. In those sorts of games, dying means losing all your progress, weapons, items, and whatever else you managed to pick up. Although a roguelite tends to be a little more forgiving than a full fat roguelike.

While it is releasing tomorrow, Ubisoft has told IGN that the mode is far from complete. In fact, it’s still in the alpha stage and will undergo changes and improvements in response to fan feedback.

‘The design strategy on Watch Dogs: Legion Of The Dead was to expand on existing systems and flip them on its head – like creating a roguelite approach with Watch Dogs: Legion’s unique gadgets,’ said online director Jean-Pascal Cambiotti.

‘We want to keep an open line of communication with the community and see where they want to take the game mode next.

‘We want players to have fun using different strategies and feel like there’s always something different to try. That’s why we’re starting small, and plan to update the game frequently so we can react to things like adjusting the difficulty level based on the feedback we get.’

Watch Dogs: Legion is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
