Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3),
Ubisoft® announced that Watch Dogs®: Legion, the newest installment of the
blockbuster Watch Dogs® franchise will be available worldwide on March 6, 2020
for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices
including Xbox One X and Windows PC. Watch Dogs: Legion will also launch on the
new generation gaming platform, Stadia
In the near future, London is facing its downfall: people are being oppressed by
an all-seeing surveillance state, a corrupt private military corporation
controls the streets, and a powerful crime syndicate is preying on the most
vulnerable. In Watch Dogs: Legion, the player’s mission is to build a resistance
to fight back against the emergence of an authoritarian regime.
Thanks to a never-before-seen gameplay innovation created by Ubisoft Toronto*,
the studio behind Watch Dogs: Legion, players will have complete freedom to
‘Play as Anyone.’ Every Londoner in the open world is fully simulated, with a
persistent life and backstory, and players can recruit anyone from the entire
population into their team. From an MI5 agent to a tough bareknuckle fighter,
from a brilliant hacker to an illegal street racer, or from a rising football
star to a geriatric grandma, anyone can join the resistance and become the hero
of the story.
Every character also has unique gameplay traits, based on their profile. Once
they join the team, players choose their class, level them up, and unlock new
abilities and upgrades. They can easily swap between them and approach the
challenges of the game the way they want using hacking and drones, stealth,
melee or combat, lethal or non-lethal.
In Watch Dogs: Legion, the players' choices have real consequences. If
non-lethal force is used, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest the
player. But if the player shoots to kill, their characters could be wounded or
even permanently killed.
In Watch Dogs: Legion, players can even bring their unique team online and team
up with their friends in four-player co-op, while sharing their progression
between single-player and online.
In addition, Ubisoft announced the Gold, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions** for
Watch Dogs: Legion:
- Gold Edition includes the base game and the Season
- Ultimate Edition includes Gold Edition and
Ultimate digital content, including four weeks VIP Status to earn experience

is exclusive to the Ubisoft Store.

Moreover, Ubicollectibles revealed Watch Dogs: Legion: Resistant of London, its
new figurine inspired directly from the world of Watch Dogs. This 26 cm figurine
shows a DedSec operative in an iconic pose, wearing either the Winston mask or
the King of Hearts mask (as two switchable masks will be included) and stepping
defiantly on an Albion mercenary’s helmet as a proud member of London's
resistance. This piece holds a burnt Black Jack flag, the symbol of the city’s
decay. On top that, a unique ULC code that unlocks the in-game mask “King of
Hearts” will be included for free.

service for Windows PC. More details on Uplay+ can be found on Uplay.com.***
