Ubisoft has announced it’s latest Watch Dogs title, Watch Dogs: Legion during this year’s E3 Expo will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms next year, March 6, 2020.
In the near future, London is facing its downfall: people are being oppressed by an all-seeing surveillance state, a corrupt private military corporation controls the streets, and a powerful crime syndicate is preying on the most vulnerable. In Watch Dogs: Legion, the player’s mission is to build a resistance to fight back against the emergence of an authoritarian regime.
In Watch Dogs: Legion, players will have complete freedom to play as anyone. Every Londoner in the open world is fully simulated, with a persistent life and backstory. Players can recruit anyone from the entire population into their team. From an MI5 agent to a tough bareknuckle fighter, from a brilliant hacker to an illegal street racer, or from a rising football star to a geriatric grandma, anyone can join the resistance and become the hero of the story.
Ubisoft says that every character in Legion will have unique gameplay traits, based on their profile. Once they join the team, we’ll choose their class, level them up, and unlock new abilities and upgrades. Characters are easily swappable so we have various ways of approaching challenges in the game.
One of the more unique features in Watch Dogs: Legion, the AI adjusts to the way they deal with the player in-game. If non-lethal force is used, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest the player. But if the player shoots to kill, their characters could be wounded or even permanently killed.
The game will also have online co-op, where you can team up online with four other players while sharing their progression between single-player and online.
In addition, Ubisoft announced the Gold, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions** for Watch Dogs: Legion:
Gold Edition includes the base game and the Season Pass.
Ultimate Edition includes Gold Edition and Ultimate digital content, including four weeks VIP Status to earn experience and currency faster.
Collector’s Edition includes the Ultimate Edition plus the LED Ded Coronet Mask Replica, an exclusive Steelbook®, a set of three stickers and a recto-verso propaganda poster, all inspired by the game’s universe, and instant access to the mask in-game. Collector’s Edition is exclusive to the Ubisoft Store.
