Watch Dogs Legion will be released on October 29, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and PC (for Epic Games Store and Uplay). Shown off at today's Ubisoft Forward event, Xbox's Phil Spencer added that the game will support Smart Delivery between Xbox One and Xbox Series X, with the latter version using Direct X Raytracing. A store page later confirmed that free upgrades will also be available between PS4 and PS5 versions. We got a look at a live-action/CG trailer for the game's dystopian themes and futuristic London setting. We also saw a series of gameplay clips, showing London's Dedsec in action.
Preorder Watch Dogs Legion
We saw recruitment profiling, differences in dialogue between procedurally generated characters, and a look at the game's story - featuring a mysterious terrorist cell, London's new PMC police group, Albion, and the Kelly Gang, led by Mary Kelly. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/12/watch-dogs-legion-welcome-to-the-resistance-trailer"] Mission gameplay shows a series of Dedsec operatives attempting to break into the Tower of London, including a contruction worker armed with a wrench, nailgun and a cargo drone. It then shows the same mission attempted by a more stealth oriented drone expert, who uses surveillance and spider drones, and an Albion officer who can simply walk through the Tower's defences. A separate mission sees Dedsec attempting to disrupt an organ farming operation from the perspective of a drunk football fan (who passes out) and a John Wick-like hitman, able to take down swathes of security. It's a confident showing of quite how different Legion can be for every player. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/12/watch-dogs-legion-gameplay-overview-ubisoft-forward"] We got a new hands-on with Watch Dogs Legion ahead of the announcement, and called Ubisoft's new London "a world of compelling stories". We also spoke to creative director Clint Hocking, who explained to us how the game's delay from March to October actually improved multiple parts of the game. After previous hands-on previews of the game, we called said Watch Dogs Legion is unlike any other Ubisoft game. We've previously learned how its "Play As Anyone" system actually works, and been told the game will at some point come to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
