Gamers have a lot to look forward to during the July 4th weekend. This coming July 4, "Watch Dogs 2" players will receive a new update absolutely free, and it promises some very exciting adventures with friends. The game has already shown its excellence in both cooperative and competitive modes, but next week, players will get to experience another type of cooperative, in the form of the Four-Player Party update coming July 4th.

In this update, players can not only play on with one other friend but three. Gamespot reported that as per producer Kris Young, the upcoming free mode is "designed to encourage cooperation, not competition" through a series of activities set in San Francisco.

Paid DLC has become a free-for-all update

According to PC Gamer, the "Watch Dogs 2" free Four-Player Party update arriving on July 4 was originally a paid DLC, but Ubisoft decided to give it away for free instead. The update will also arrive with a patch that will improve the quality of life, as well as address certain bug fixes. With it, players can now skip the 3D printer cinematic. The patch has also fixed the unlocks for the shuffler takedown move, as well as improved game stability.
