Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs Legion, will be available March 6th, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and next-gen consoles and Stadia at a later date.
In the near future, London is facing its downfall: people are being oppressed by an all-seeing surveillance state, a corrupt private military corporation controls the streets, and a powerful crime syndicate is preying on the most vulnerable. In Watch Dogs Legion, the player’s mission is to build a resistance to fight back against the emergence of an authoritarian regime.
As it was previously leaked, players will have the freedom to play as anyone. Every Londoner in the open world is fully simulated, with a persistent life and backstory, and players can recruit anyone from the entire population into their team. From an MI5 agent to a geriatric grandma, anyone can join the resistance and become the hero of the story.
Every character also has unique gameplay traits, based on their profile. Once they join the team, players choose their class, level them up, and unlock new abilities and upgrades. They can easily swap between them and approach the challenges of the game the way they want using hacking and drones, stealth, melee or combat, lethal or non-lethal.
In Watch Dogs Legion, the players' choices have real consequences. If non-lethal force is used, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest the player. But if the player chooses a move violent approach, their characters could be wounded or even permanently killed.
Players can even bring their unique team online and team up with their friends in four-player co-op, while sharing their progression between single-player and online.
Ubisoft also announced the Gold, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions for Watch Dogs Legion:
• Gold Edition includes the base game and the Season Pass.
• Ultimate Edition includes Gold Edition and Ultimate digital content, including four weeks’ VIP Status to earn experience and currency faster.
• Collector’s Edition includes the Ultimate Edition plus the LED “Ded Coronet” Mask Replica, an exclusive Steelbook, a set of three stickers and a double-sided propaganda poster, all inspired by the game's universe, and instant access to the mask in-game.
