Watch Dogs 2's Showd0wn DLC, a multiplayer add-on which was originally intended to launch as part of the premium No Compromise DLC, will now be offered free to all players, Ubisoft has announced.

As a result, Ubisoft will be bulking out No Compromise with new ability-granting outfits and vehicles, nonlethal weapons, and single-player time trials that weren’t originally part of the package.

Showd0wn - April 17 - Pitting two pairs of players against each other, Showd0wn is an endgame challenge for experienced players. 

Competitive matches in three types: Steal the HDD; Doomload, a King of the Hill-style match; and Erase/Protect the Servers, a Watch Dogs twist on classic domination matches.

The drone, motocross, and eKart races are also getting multiplayer functionality complete with leaderboards.

In addition to its new DedSec Operation – a multi-mission storyline addition called Moscow Gambit – it includes new single-player time trials, as well two new nonlethal weapons: the Air Shotgun (which can also move cars and other objects) and the Taser Sniper Rifle.

“By adding more weapon options for nonlethal players, we’re giving them new tools and strategies they can use to replay favourite missions, push their preferred playstyle even further, and experiment more with the Ghost style,” says Watch Dogs 2’s live producer, Kris Young.
