Watch Dogs: Legion is an upcoming action-adventure game, developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft. It is the third instalment in the Watch Dogs series, and the sequel to Watch Dogs 2. The game is set within an open world, fictionalised representation of London, and will feature the ability to control multiple characters that can be recruited across the game’s setting and who can be permanently lost during the course of a playthrough if players have the permadeath option enabled, providing a more dynamic influence on the game’s narrative. The game will also feature a cooperative multiplayer that will allow up to four players to work together. It is due to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia on 29 October 2020, as well for the Xbox Series X/S on 10 November 2020, and for the PlayStation 5 on 12 November 2020 as a launch title for both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles.
The game’s story focuses on the London branch of hacker group DedSec, as they attempt to liberate the city from its dystopian surveillance state by recruiting allies from London’s inhabitants. At the same time, the group focuses on investigating a string of terrorist attacks they were framed for, and who orchestrated them, discovering a deep conspiracy centered around the head of a private military company.
