Chaos and Zero-Day are taking over.
Ubisoft released yesterday new information about its upcoming title Watch Dogs: Legion. Along with a new story trailer, we got some details about the company’s post-launch plans for the title.
As a member of DedSec, an underground resistance group, players will be facing criminals that back Zero-Day. You’ll battle mercenaries, cybercriminals, sadists and more while all being framed for crimes that DedSec never committed.
Unique for this entry of the series, Watch Dogs: Legion has players taking on the role of any member of DedSec. There’s not just one protagonist this time around; any number of NPCs in this open world title can be recruited and controller. They’ll even each have their own backstory, personality and skillset.
The new story trailer, which you can watch below, shows citizens on the streets of London fighting with a mostly unknown enemy called Zero-Day. The trailer also showcases the corruption that players will deal with first hand when they dive into the game.
Ubisoft also revealed that an online multiplayer mode will be available in Watch Dogs: Legion starting December 3rd. A free update to the game, online mode will allow players to team up co-operatively to explore London together. It’ll also introduce new co-op missions, and special four-player Tactical Ops missions designed with teamwork in mind. If you prefer to go head-to-head, a PvP mode will be available, putting players in control of a Spiderbot in a free-for-all deathmatch.
Alongside the online mode, Watch Dogs Legion will be getting free content in 2021, including a New Game Plus mode, new characters, and new mission content.
A Season Pass will also be available, which gives players access to Bloodline, a new storyline featuring Aiden Pearce. It will also cross over with Assassin’s Creed, adding Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order, as a playable character. The Season Pass will also give players access to Watch Dogs Complete Edition – the first game in the series.
Watch Dogs: Legion is set to release on October 29th, 2020 on Xbox One, PS4, Stadia and PC. An Xbox Series X/S release will follow on November 10th and PS5 on November 12th. Players that purchase the game on PS4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version for free.
