The latest instalment of the action-adventure game Watch Dogs is finally here. Watch Dogs: Legion is set in a fictionalised representation of London in the near-future, where it has become a surveillance state with private military and organised crime. The story focuses on the hacker group DedSec and their mission to stop the downfall of the city by fighting back against the authoritarian powers in charge.
As an open-world game, London’s many famous landmarks including Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, London Eye, Camden and more can be spotted throughout the city setting. The biggest difference between Watch Dogs: Legion and previous games from the series is that gamers can now recruit anyone they meet on the streets to be part of their resistance team. The ability to control multiple characters means that each gamer’s DedSec gang can have a unique mix of characters and skillsets. Each member can also be personalised by building their different skillsets and customising their appearance. Other than taking back the city via a huge variety of different missions, the team also have to investigate the perpetrator behind the Zero-Day bombings. Besides the single-player mode, the game also features a co-op gameplay mode for up to four players in a team.
Watch Dogs: Legion is available from 29 October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and Stadia. The game will also be available for the next-generation consoles Xbox Series X/S on 10 November and PlayStation 5 on 12 November.
