Can You Play Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead Offline or in Single Player?

Watch Dogs Legion of the Dead

Wondering if you can play Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead offline or in single player mode? Here’s what you need to know.

Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead is here. No, we’ve not got our movies and games mixed up, Legion of the Dead is a new mode that, having started life as a PC alpha, has been added to all versions of Watch Dogs: Legion.

It throws you into a zombie-infested London and charges you with completing various missions with the dead nipping at your heels. It’s primarily meant to be a multiplayer activity, and supports a total of four players. But what if you want to go solo? Can you play Legion of the Dead offline, in single-player?

The answer is.. yes and no. Yes, you can play Legion of the Dead solo, you just click on Session Privacy, choose “Friends Only”, hit Start and then and just don’t invite anyone else. But no, you can’t play it offline. If you try to launch it without being connected to the internet, you’ll get an error message.

The latter is a little disappointing as, as long as you’re playing solo, there’s nothing about Legion of the Dead that seems like it would need to be connected. We’d be happy as a zombie with a bag of brains if Ubisoft would add the ability to play offline.

But for now, you can play Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead as a single player, but you can’t play it offline.
