Watch Dogs Legion Review: trailer release date, and price
As you probably already know, Watch Dogs: Legion is the next third title in the Watch Dogs video game series . Like other video games, it is set in the near future, but this time it takes London as the stage.
Even more ambitious, it lets you control any character from the vast open world, from grandmothers to hooligans, as you work to create a resistance force.
As explained in the reveal trailer, Watch Dogs: Legion allows you to play like any character in the vast open world with the goal of building a resistance to rise up and take London back from the clutches of tyranny.
What’s really impressive is that Ubisoft claims that each character is unique, with its own animations, voiceovers, and traits, all of which have an effect on the way you experience the game. The trailer features a couple of characters, from a former MI5 agent to a murderous grandmother, showing the true scale of what Legion seems to offer.
Watch Dogs Legion: Release Date
Although Watch Dogs: Legion was due to be released in March 2020, the game’s release was delayed without giving a new release date. It is now set for the year 2020-21 (April to April), so it will come out sometime in that period, but we don’t know more than that.
At least this helped him avoid competition from the other big titles that came out in the spring of 2020.
What platforms will Watch Dogs: Legion be available for ?
The game was announced for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.
However, thanks to the delay, it is now a safe bet that Ubisoft will bring the game to the PS5 and Xbox Series X as well. Nothing has been announced yet, but we will likely find out soon.
What will the gameplay of Watch Dogs: Legion be like?
As we have already mentioned, the biggest news about Legion is that you can control almost any character in London.
What’s really impressive is that Ubisoft claims that each character is unique, with their own animations, voiceovers and traits – all of this influences the way you experience the game. The trailer focuses on a couple of characters, from a former MI5 agent to a murderous grandmother, showing the true magnitude of what Legion seems to offer.
The leaked images in July 2020 reveal more: Each character type will have their own special abilities to distinguish them. A soccer hooligan can get his friends together in a fight and take less damage when he is drunk, while a prison officer can get others out of jail on bail, for example.
Of course, Watch Dogs is based on the world of technology. London is the perfect setting for a game like this, with an extensive network of CCTV (security cameras) that players can use to track people of interest and remotely trigger devastating hacks. The addition of killer drones and other dangerous technology can’t hurt either, can it?
Along with the announcement, Ubisoft released a trailer for the game, giving fans an idea of what to expect from the hacking feeling when it is released next year. It lasts just over 11 minutes, so get comfortable and prepare to be impressed.
