‘Watch Dogs: Legion’ releases new trailer, story and gameplay revealed

Watch Dogs: Legion is just a little more than a month away from hitting the shelves, and players are hoping for an ultimate gaming experience. Furthermore, Ubisoft is showing off the beautiful Watch Dog world set in London.

Initially introduced in 2014, the first installment, reportedly, did not provide so much of the gaming experience players had hoped for. However, Ubisoft made great improvements in the second installment, Watch Dogs 2. Thus, Watch Dogs 2 easily got accepted into the video game community. And now, players are looking forward to the release of Watch Dogs: Legion.

Watch Dogs: Legion trailer

The anticipated Watch Dogs: Legion trailer features the beautiful city of London. It shows off iconic landmarks particularly, the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge, and the Clock Tower. The game also highlights Trafalgar Square, Battersea, Camden, Southwark, Brixton, Chinatown, Soho, Westminster, and the City of London.

As seen in the trailer, the city of London is meeting its downfall, homelessness becomes widespread, and crimes are rampant. The game looks promising because it features highly advanced drones, flying vehicles, and gadgets. Meanwhile, different groups want to take control of the city. Private armies turned the city into a surveillance state, and the police control the streets. Furthermore, a powerful syndicate wants to step up their game.
