Watch Dogs Legion Ubisoft Forward Segment Reveals More Details


Fresh from the latest Ubisoft Forward event overnight, we’re dissecting the official Watch Dogs Legion Ubisoft Forward segment, taking a look at the different resistance fighters that you may come across in your travels through London.

The first part of the segment revealed that Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr. AKA ‘Stormzy’ will be featured in the game as an underground rapper spitting tunes at the oppressors. Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr.’s fame continues to grow in the real world, and will bring a calmness to the tension between the resistance fighters of the fictional dystopian London and the privatised security force that controls the city after the police were defunded and abolished.

The segment then cuts into the new recruitment trailer revealing different classes that you can recruit such as a getaway driver, hacker, street artist, and beekeeper. While none of the classes were a surprise to us, we did learn that while you can recruit absolutely every NPC you come across in the open world, you might not be able to find and recruit the best team straight away, and even some of the better team members might have some serious downsides, such as old age or hiccups.

Rocket Chainsaw has been covering Watch Dogs Legion since its original reveal, and for more information you can check out some more Watch Dogs idiots, and the full (covered) map.

Finally, Ubisoft revealed that players will get access to the one and only Aiden Pearce from the original Watch Dogs game as a post-launch DLC, who will have his very own story arc. This opens the door for potential other characters joining the resistance in London. Sam Fisher? Jacob Frye? Vaas? We’re excited!

Watch the full Watch Dogs Legion Ubisoft Forward Segment below:

It is time to take back London, and anyone you see in this iconic city can be recruited to your resistance. Corrupt opportunists have taken over and it’s up to you to build a resistance to give the city back to the people. With an entire population of potential recruits and the city’s technology at your fingertips, you’ll need to hack, infiltrate, and fight your way to liberate London. Welcome to the Resistance.

Key Features:

PLAY AS ANYONE
Build a team with a huge range of characters to choose from, all bringing their own unique abilities. From a brilliant hacker to a getaway driver, from a football hooligan to an inconspicuous old lady, everyone has a unique backstory, personality, and skillset that should be used in unique situations. Customize your Legion with enhanced gadgets, unique outfits and iconic masks.

AN IMMERSIVE STORY
After a mysterious assailant initiates devastating terror attacks on London, DedSec, a secret underground resistance who is being blamed for the attacks and is on the brink of annihilation, needs your help. Your mission is to rebuild DedSec to fight back against those who wish to keep London oppressed. You will continue to meet colorful characters along the way – both villains and allies – in your fight for London.

HACKING IS YOUR WEAPON
Weaponize London’s tech infrastructure, and unleash DedSec’s mastery of technology: hijack armed combat drones, reconstruct past events using augmented reality to discover who is behind the terror attacks, and hack your way through the most advanced security systems.
