Watch Dogs: Legion

It’s time to take back London, and virtually anyone you see in this iconic city can be recruited to your resistance. The people are being oppressed by corrupt opportunists and it’s up to you to build a resistance to give the city back to the people. With an entire population of potential recruits and the city’s technology at your fingertips, you’ll need to hack, infiltrate, and fight your way to a liberated London. Welcome to the Resistance.

Key Features

  • Play as Anyone – Recruit anyone from the entire population of London into your resistance: from an MI6 agent to a tough bareknuckle fighter, a brilliant hacker or an illegal street-racer, a rising football star or an inconspicuous old lady… Anyone you see can join your team and has a unique backstory, personality, and skillset.
  • Customize Your Recruits – Unlock unique perks to personalize each member of your Legion according to your playstyle. Level-up each character within classes such as Hacker, Infiltrator, and Assault. Customize them further with unique outfits and iconic masks.
  • Hacking is Your Weapon – Weaponize London’s tech infrastructure. Hijack armed combat drones, deploy stealthy spider-bots, covertly take down enemies using an Augmented Reality Cloak, and much more.
  • Total Freedom, Real Consequences – Play the game the way you want. A brand-new melee system and a wide range of weapons and abilities means that the way you approach combat has real consequences. If you use non-lethal force, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest you. If you shoot to kill, you risk having your characters permanently killed.
  • Open-World London – Explore a massive urban open world and visit London’s many famous landmarks – including Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Camden, Piccadilly Circus, or the London Eye – and engage in side activities like bareknuckle boxing, freestyle football, illegal courier contracts or street art.
  • Team Up with Friends – Bring your team online and join forces with up to three friends as you freely explore the world together or take on entirely new co-op missions and challenging end-game content. Enjoy free regular updates adding new online modes, rewards, and themed events.


so after all the leaks , seems like Ubi finally released little tease , basically confirming the leaks


Recent leaks:


https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ubisoft-300111218-Watch-Dogs-Legion/dp/B07S8DFBLS/ (removed now)

Kotakucan confirm that this one’s real, as we’ve heard the name from several sources plugged into the company.

Watch Dogs Legion is set in London, as we confirmed a while ago, and here’s the really interesting gimmick: You can play as any NPC you recruit in the game. From the product description:
Play as anyone, Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems
I’ve heard the same, and also that you’ll see different things at different points in the game depending which NPC you’re playing as. In fact, from what I’ve heard, this system is so ambitious that it’s been causing the developers a lot of headaches (and may have led to at least one delay).

Pretty stoked actually. Curious how this will play out with the NPC's - still hope there is a main protagonist tho.

Build the resistance. Recruit anyone. Play as anyone.

Londoners are being oppressed by corrupt opportunists and it’s up to you to build a resistance to give the city back to the people.

I like the "play as anyone" aspect, but I never played WD1/WD2. However, I feel I could stay away from Ubisoft games for years and be fine, If they bring them to Steam, I might bite on something interesting. However, I really am fatigued by their open world formula.

According to Hocking, every cutscene in the game accounts for every single character, which means that if a character should die, even tough their own story would come to a close, the larger story of the game would keep on progressing in context of that death.

“Permadeath is always an opt-in gamble for the player,” Hocking told GamingBolt. “When your health goes to ‘zero’ you enter the critically injured state. At this point you are always offered the opportunity to Surrender, and be sent to jail. You can systemically free Operatives who have been sent to jail, or wait for them to be released. But if you choose not to Surrender, and Keep Fighting, then you are risking Permadeath.”

“Since every mission, every line of dialogue, and every cutscene has been written to account for every possible character, the loss of one of your characters means that the rest of your team will have to pick up where they left off and the plot and the story will carry on,”
Hocking continued. “Each character has their own origin story – the story of how they are recruited into DedSec, and once they are on your team, the main missions and the overall game narrative are the story of DedSec as a team, and how they collectively work to halt the emergence of the authoritarian regime that is trying to take over the city.”

That's a bold move, let's see how it plays out for them. Though I am getting more interested in this game the more i see of it and i was not interested at all before E3.

When everyone is playable, it’s important to recruit wisely.

Each character in the city of London has their own unique abilities and skills that can help you bring the power back into the hands of the people. Recruit your own unique team with their own personalities, backstories, and perks. Play as anyone and bring your characters to life with four-player co-op missions, events, and end-game challenges.
