Watch Dogs Legion Gameplay Trailer and Release Date Announced

After an Amazon leak, Ubisoft confirmed that we would see Watch Dogs Legion at E3 2019 and the publisher didn’t dissapoint, showcasing the first-ever Watch Dogs Legion gameplay trailer and it looks fantastic. Ubisoft also gave us a release date of 6 March 2020 and the gameplay trailer gives us more information about the upcoming hackathon action game and it sounds like Ubisoft has another winner on their hands.

Watch Dogs Legion takes place in a near-future, dystopian version of London. Society, politics and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes and from the Watch Dogs Legion gameplay trailer, it is clear that the iconic city has fallen on tough times. as the government has given up on the city as the UK has become a surveillance state.

In Watch Dogs Legion, players will be able to control any NPC they choose. Every individual you meet in the open world of Watch Dogs Legion has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated and guided by various gameplay systems. It looks like the player will be assisted by an AI called Bagley and in the gameplay you can see the player looking for a drone expert to take over, before things go sideways and the player character dies. There’s also a choice to put this character to rest when you die, meaning permanent death to the NPC.

Ubisoft explains in a new blog post that:

The characters you’ll meet roaming around London aren’t randomly generated; instead, each has a persistent schedule and backstory, as well as special traits you can leverage to help your cause using the Play as Anyone feature. By helping characters and improving their opinion of hacker group DedSec, you can persuade them to join – and once they do, you’ll be able to take full control of them. You’ll also shape them into effective operatives – tough Enforcers, sneaky Infiltrators, or drone-controlling Hackers – and add them to a team with diverse skills and backgrounds, whose members you can switch between at any time (and who can all do at least basic Watch Dogs-style environmental hacking).

 

London’s citizens are all fully voiced, and whether you’re playing as an elderly pensioner or a tough-as-nails boxer, the game’s cutscenes will change to reflect your character’s presence and personality. Your choices also have an effect on the world around you; put up your fists instead of drawing a gun, for example, and your enemies will attempt to arrest or take you down non-lethally. But if you draw a gun – even a nonlethal one – they’ll do likewise, and the confrontation could end with your character permanently killed.

That’s where things get really interesting. You can see that the player already has control of a dozen characters (called operatives) and these have various levels, meaning you will be able to level up each NPC you take over, from an old lady to an ex-military fighter. Instead of just playing with one person, you can recruit everyone to the resistance and build your legion.

Watch Dogs Legion is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One and Stadia on 6 March 2020. The first Watch Dogs Legion gameplay trailer looks awesome and the whole idea about being able to play with any NPC you meet sounds astoundingly complex and intriguing.
