Ubisoft has released one of the biggest games of the year, Watch Dogs: Legion, on PC (Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store), Stadia, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The third game in the third-person hacker series introduces a dystopian near-future London. Players join up with DeadSec, an underground resistance movement tasked with liberating London from Zero-Day.
You’ll need to recruit new members into DeadSec using Legion’s innovative “Play as Anyone” feature. Every single character in the open world game can be recruited and become a playable hero. Each has their own backstory, personality, and skills, giving players a huge range of options on who they want to play.
Legion will be adding online mulitplayer as a free update on December 3. The post-launch plans include new content to single-player and the addition of online multiplayer. Using Ubisoft’s new social media service Ubisoft Connect, players can access limited-time and community challenges. Players can earn rewards to spend on unique weapons, outfits, and consumables.
Watch Dogs: Legion also features a Season Pass. The Season Pass includes a new storyline that includes the heroes from the first two games, as well as a crossover with Assassin’s Creed, and extra DeadSec missions.
Watch Dogs: Legion is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One. It’s also coming to Xbox Series X on November 10 and PlayStation 5 on November 12 as launch titles (physical PS5 version available Nov. 24). Free digital upgrades to the next gen versions will also be supported. It’s rated M for Mature.
