Ubisoft had a lot to reveal during Ubisoft Forward, and one of the highly anticipated titles now is Watchdogs Legion. The upcoming game isn’t just a follow-up to one of the developer’s IPs as it introduces a lot of new mechanics to the game.
One of the highlights of Ubisoft Forward was Watchdogs Legion. We got to see more of the game that was first unveiled last year. Fans are excited to see the direction of the Watchdogs series. Here’s everything we know so far about the game.
Release date and platform availability
According to Ubisoft, the release of the game will be on Oct. 29, 2020. The game will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. According to Ubisoft, those who buy the game will get a free upgrade for next-gen consoles once the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X launches. For players to upgrade their game, players can do so via the Xbox Smart Delivery Feature.
For PlayStation owners, they’ll simply have to place the CD on the drive of the PlayStation 5.
Watchdogs Legion is going to be different from the previous entries in the series. Instead of having to control one character, players can alternatively select a team from a roster of playable characters that each come with his or her specialty.
The gameplay revealed at Ubisoft Forward revealed that London is under siege from a terrorist group. To help control the situation, the government is using a private military group called Albion to get the job done. The team will be lead by Nigel Cass.
Players will assume the role of members of the terrorist group. The mission during the gameplay is to get some information on Nigel Cass. To do that, players can approach the game in a variety of ways, depending on the team they have chosen.
Some of the characters are on the techy side and can summon drones for a more covert approach. There are also hitmen in the group for those that want to take the fight head-on.
Ubisoft looks to be shaking up the sandbox genre with Watchdogs Legion. Fans are hoping that the game can deliver the unique experience that Ubisoft is trying to emulate. For now, players seem to be responding to the game pretty well. As the release date draws near, there’s going to be more details about it to be released for sure.
