Watch Dogs: Legion coming next year, can play as anyone in post-Brexit London 

Ubisoft formally unveiled Watch Dogs: Legion during its E3 2019 presentation today, which takes players to a fictional London set post-Brexit, where the hacker group DedSec is fighting back against "a new wave of authoritarianism."

Interestingly, there isn't a main protagonist in the game, as once recruited to the cause, any and all DedSec agents can become completely voiced and animated playable characters. These can range from ex-MI5 spies to sweet old ladies - who we saw doing some hilarious "parkour" and fighting enemies in the gameplay reveal.

These agents can die, however, which means they and their skill a are lost permanently to the player. Hacking makes a return too, although it wasn't a main focus in the announcement. Players can still hack various things around the world to gather information, control cars, environmental objects, and enemy comms.

Watch Dogs: Legion will be launching on March 6, 2020 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia. Ubisoft has also partnered with Nvidia to bring in real-time ray tracing to the PC version.
