Ubisoft first announced Watch Dogs: Legion during its E3 presentation last year, and following a launch delay, it was showcased again today during the publisher's Ubisoft Forward presentation. There were multiple trailers released today. Above is the cinematic trailer plus the gameplay segment that set the stage of the open-world hacking title.
As previously announced, Watch Dogs: Legion lets players jump between various Londoners to utilize their skills and go through missions in a variety of ways. Players can do favors to any random civilian to recruit them over to DedSec and then play as them whenever needed.
There's more than a few options here, effectively letting players build a deck of characters, from assassins that can mop up enemies like John Wick to construction workers, grannies, bee keepers, enemy employees, and also the classic hackers. See the other newly released gameplay trailer below, which shows off the character recruitment and utilization feature in action through multiple missions.
Pre-orders are available now, with Watch Dogs: Legion heading to PC (via Uplay and Epic Games Store), Uplay+, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Stadia on October 29. There are also Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions planned for later, with free upgrades available to those who purchase the current-gen console versions, just like Far Cry 6 and Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
