The annual conference of Ubisoft E3 2019 began with the official revelation of a new Watch Dogs game. Watch Dogs Legion is the third title of the series and its main hook is that players not only control a single main character, but recruit a list of characters with different skills and abilities.
debut in the game, we witnessed a character in Watch Dogs Legion named Ian while he was exploring London and investigating the other characters that surrounded him. He is trying to find someone familiar with the drones and, when he finds it, the drone expert, Jimmy Shaw, starts a fight with safety. Ian helps him while Jimmy leaves. During the confrontation, Ian is injured and the player has the option to surrender or resist. He chooses to Resist and Ian covers himself before escaping in a nearby taxi.
After a chase and a collision, a gunfight ensues and Ian dies. Here is where we see an important change in the formula Watch Dogs for Legion . After leaving Ian at rest permanently, the player can select from a list of other game citizens with different abilities. A hacker and a retired police engineer named Helen are chosen and she is used to infiltrating an establishment using her skills and a small drone walker. She is looking for information on where Jimmy is being stopped and his drone attacks on a system to get files after knocking down some enemies.
Then we went to Naomi, who uses Helen's information to locate and rescue Jimmy at a place called Camden Market. Helen, Ian and Naomi present unique voices, animations and abilities, and Ubisoft says that the vast collection of characters will be unique in several ways. All the characters are guided by an A.I. assistant called Bagley and also interact with each other on the basis of shared goals. After rescuing Jimmy, the young man joins DeadSec and you take control of him in the game.
The main goal in Watch Dogs Legion is to build a resistance against a regime in London and you can recruit all the citizens of the population of the game, including police scattered throughout the city. The characters are unique and there are home missions that you must complete to recruit them. Watch Dogs Legion is released on March 6, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC.
