You'll be able to explore with your buddies, take on challenges and encounter events throughout the city. There'll be co-op missions for up to four players.
The free update includes a four-player Tactical Op, which consists of five connected missions. Ubisoft says this is endgame content for players looking for a challenge, so it's probably best to make sure that you've recruited a high-quality team of characters and you have upgraded your gadgets before taking on the Leader of the Pack operation.
