Ubisoft E3 2019: Recruit the Resistance in Watch Dogs: Legion

Posted by | June 11, 2019 | News, PC, PlayStation 4, Video, Xbox One | No Comments

Ubisoft opened up their E3 2019 press conference by revealing their most biggest game of the show: Watch Dogs: Legion. The third game in the action series takes place in a near-future London, and allows players to recruit their own roster of resistance fighters. It’s coming March 6, 2020 to PC, Playstation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One.

An authoritarian, oppressive London full of drones and cameras is the setting for Watch Dogs: Legion. You work for the underground resistance group DedSec, but who you play as is where the game gets interesting. Instead of a central protagonist, you recruit your own team from anyone in the open world. Every single person in the game has their own set of skills and background, and come in three different classes: Enforcer, Infiltrator, Hacker. Characters can be profiled and recruited, and all have real-world daily schedules they follow.

You can recruit a team of up to 20 from anyone in the game. Cinematics will shift to accommodate whichever characters you have, and you can switch between them as they live and work around the world, similar to Grand Theft Auto V. If a character dies they’re permanently dead, and you’ll have to recruit more to keep your roster full.

Four player co-op multiplayer will also be supported, along with exclusive co-op missions and endgame content.

Watch Dogs: Legion is one of the most ambitious-looking games of E3 2019. It’s out March 6, 2020.
