Ubisoft officially launched “Watch Dogs: Legion” on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC through the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store. Players will also find the game on Stadia and Ubisoft+, Ubisoft’s subscription service. There’s a lot of new content coming to the game over the next few months, including a large multiplayer experience for players.
If you’re new to the title, one of the standout features is “Play as Anyone,” an innovation created by Ubisoft Toronto. The new mechanic gives players the entire city of London to choose from to complete their roster of resistance members. The studio explained, “Every single person in the open world can be recruited and played, is unique and has a backstory, personality and skillset.”
“Watch Dogs: Legion” also support hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing on Xbox Series X and full ray-tracing support on Nvidia RTX-equipped PC devices. Players who purchase Watch Dogs: Legion on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade their game to the next-gen version (Xbox Series X or PlayStation5) at no additional cost, while keeping their progression and in-game content between current and next-generation of consoles within the same family thanks to the new Ubisoft Connect ecosystem.
The game’s description reads, “In Watch Dogs: Legion, London is facing its downfall. Amidst the growing unrest of a restless London, an unknown entity named Zero-Day has framed secret underground resistance DedSec for coordinated bombings across London. In the aftermath, criminal opportunists from every corner of London took hold and filled the void left by a defeated government. As a member of DedSec, players will be going up against those criminal opportunists in Watch Dogs: Legion: sadists, mercenaries, cybercriminals, and more, so they’ll have to be prepared for a variety of situations. Players must recruit members into their DedSec Resistance to take on these criminal opportunists, liberate London and uncover the identity of Zero-Day.”
