Watch Dogs Legion trailers
Ubisoft revealed the first trailer for Watch Dogs 3 – officially titled Watch Dogs Legion – at E3 2019.
Watch Dogs: Legion seems to see you taking on an organization called Albion who have distributed riot drones all over London to keep people in line. You're a member of the resistance: DeadSec.
What's interesting about Legion is that you play as more than one character (a whole host actually), with permadeath wiping out the one you're playing if you happen to end up on the wrong end of an electric bullet. You can apparently play as anyone – with every Londoner being recruitable and fully simulated.
Check out the trailer below:
Legion seems to be much more combat-heavy than the previous entries we've seen in the Watchdogs series and offer a much more developed open-world. But what's really caught our eye is the realistic interpretation of London – even if it's a Bladerunner, neon feverdream.
Watch Dogs: Legion is due for release on March 6, 2020.
