Watch Dogs Legion

Recommended Posts

"Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion is real, and the sequel is set in London's near-future. This official confirmation comes right off the tail-end of yesterday's Amazon listing leak, which exposed the game's existence, name, and setting before Ubisoft could unveil it to the world first at next week's E3.

It's long been rumored that a third Watch Dogs has been in development, with a small but compelling paper trail and slight hints from Ubisoft itself, fueling the speculative fire. After Amazon UK accidentally spilled the baked beans ahead of Ubisoft's E3 2019 presser, it was made known that Watch Dogs' next cyber crime spree will be set in London. Playing with the sensitive subjects of worsening mass surveillance and life after Brexit, Watch Dogs Legion will be giving the UK capital the same highly attentive treatment that San Francisco and Chicago received before it."

Nice. Seen many leaks regarding the London setting for awhile now.  Let me guess, the game is not trying to make any political statements? :D

Enjoyed WD2 surprisingly much, despite its story suffering heavily of narrative dissonance and being a bit too hipster for my taste. I hope that those things are better tuned in this new game.

After watching the reveal trailer I assumed there would be a core roster of characters that you need to recruit for the main storyline (those that appear in the cutscenes). Hearing that all of them are completely exchangeable sounds pretty wild.

Congrats on the announcement @kleinluka! Looking great!

Looks really ambitious! Very smooth animations as well. Looking forward to more details about this one!

That granny is so awesome! 😎

When I read 'Watch Dogs' I was ehh another one... but this trailer got me pretty exited though.

Uh I like the John Wick clone

Yeah that got me pretty hyped. There's something appealing about close combat gun ballet.
Great looking animations, I hope it's dynamic enough to not become repetitive too fast.

This and FC6 has me most interested of Ubi's upcoming lineup.

I've lost my excitement for Legion. Watch Dogs 2 is my most played singleplayer game, and I feel like this one isn't going to live up to that experience. While they are introducing a lot of cool new features, I'm just not as sold on the world as the previous games. Watch Dogs (to me) was about fighting against a system that quietly suppresses society. There was something cool and scary about the idea that the enemy could destroy someones life not by killing them, but by simply clicking a few buttons in their system. Now the player is fighting against obvious bad guy who oppresses the people through physical force. Legion seems to be taking away what made the themeing of Watch Dogs so unique. While choosing your character is an original feature that expands npc profiling, it also means the player will have less freedom at any point in time. The player is no longer the swiss-army knife of gameplay we had in Watch Dogs 2. Instead, you have to choose your approach way ahead of the moment you actually engage your enemy, and if it fails you can't have a back up plan at the tip of your fingers.
