Starting off the Ubisoft E3 2019 show, after a brief orchestral performance from the Assassin's Creed Symphony. Watch Dogs Legion is up first, though it was first leaked, and then announced earlier this month.
While Watch Dogs as a franchise has shows us the issues with an AI monitored future in America but in Watch Dogs Legion we're going to be seeing how it's going across the pond. In the trailer, we see the main character seeking out someone for a drone mission. Deadsec is still the resistance company showing that they have a global presence. After getting into an altercation the character hijacks a taxi and does what he can to get away from the police. In a twist after seeing this character die we get to see the full team roster that you can toggle between. While this isn't quite being able to create a customizable character this is a new step where you can play as any of your recruits.
After swapping to an older lady you see her infiltrate Scotland Yard with a variety of gadgets and get away clean. The different members of Deadsec all share the same objective but it will be up to you to decide who you want to complete the job. While there's a lot of new things to look forward to abilities like ringing your targets phones to distract them, starting cars, and "hacking the planet" is still part of your repertoire. During this trailer we also see the player recruiting a new member of Deadsec.
Watch Dogs Legion will allow you to recruit and play as anyone. Every character in the world is fully simulated and unique to one another. They're fully voiced and animated and every cinematic will change based on these differences. Legion is now available for Pre-Order and will release on March 6th, 2020. There will be a Gold, Ultimate and Collector's Edition of the game. The Gold will include the season pass, Ultimate includes extra digital content and four weeks of VIP status allowing you to earn experience and currency faster, Collector's edition included everything in the previous versions as well as a LED Ded Coronet Mask Replica, a Steelbook, three stickers, a propaganda poster and access to your new mask in game. This Collector's Edition is exclusive to the Ubisoft Store.
