Ubisoft has officially released Watch Dogs: Legion, the third installment in the Watch Dogs franchise, and one of the most ambitious entries for the series yet.
Released today on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, the Epic Games Store, and Ubisoft store on Windows PC, Stadia, and Ubisoft+ subscription services, Watch Dog: Legions will take fans on the third adventure within the franchise.
Alongside today’s release, Ubisoft has also confirmed that the game will be coming to Amazon’s upcoming cloud-based streaming service, Amazon Luna on November 10th alongside Xbox Series X|S and on PlayStation 5 on November 12th, 2020, with a PlayStation 5 version of the game, and of course, a physical retail copy of the game.
The game is the first-ever in the series to support full-ray tracing support on Xbox Series X with DirectX Raytracing tech and NVIDIA RTX supported GPUs. London will fill bigger, better, and more lively than ever before with the new real-time ray-tracing reflections in the streets of London. Explosions, reflections, and lighting effects will feel bigger and more real than ever before.
It’ll also be the first time that players see the depth of realism they are, but also, the ability to Play as Anyone as they recruit new DedSec members. The Play as Anyone feature allows players to choose anyone from the entire city of London, recruit them, and help bolster their resistance numbers.
Each character comes with their own unique backstory, personality, and skillset you can explore in a post-Zero-Day event world. With DedSec being framed for the event, players will fight back, they will resist, and they will stop a world left void by the government who has become more powerful than ever before, and will use every tool they can to observe and control their population.
Now, the DedSec Legion will hunt down Zero-Day and find out who and why they did what they’ve done in order to put a stop to it all. As part of the launch, Ubisoft has revealed the Season Pass for Watch Dogs: Legion will feature a new Aiden Pearce and Wrench-filled experience with the upcoming Bloodline DLC, which is a fully playable experience in both singleplayer and online modes.
Additionally, Players will meet Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order in a cross-over content. Players will also get to meet Mina, a subject of transhuman experiments, and became capable of mind-controlling individuals around her.
Along with extra DedSec Missions, the Season Pass will also feature the original Watch Dogs Complete Edition, which released in 2014, and plenty more at a later date. The online multiplayer mode for Watch Dogs: Legion will launch on December 3rd as part of a free title update along with a robust post-launch roadmap ahead.
Watch Dogs: Legion has an unimaginable amount of accessibility options, ranging from fully customizable controls to directional audio captions, which will allow you to customize the experience to your liking. The game is also the first to utilize Ubisoft Connect, which combines the best of Ubisoft’s Uplay service and Ubisoft club as a single service.
