Watch Dogs Legion E3 Gameplay

Dur­ing Ubisoft­’s E3 show­case they showed an extend­ed look at the next entry in the open world, hack­ing Watch Dogs series, Watch Dogs Legion.

Watch Dogs Legion is set in Lon­don and fea­tures a dif­fer­ent approach to telling its sto­ry by allow­ing the play­er to play as any char­ac­ter they see and recruit to Dead­Sec.

Ubisoft promis­es that each and every char­ac­ter has “a per­sis­tent sched­ule and back­sto­ry,”. You can play as a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent peo­ple rang­ing from ex- MI5 agents to a 70 year old woman.

Each per­son you recruit will have unique perks and can be lev­eled up to unlock more skills and allow you to fur­ther cus­tomize your char­ac­ter to fit your play style.

Watch Dogs Legion also fea­tures per­ma-death, mean­ing that each char­ac­ter you play as does not come back once they die. They are gone for­ev­er.

While the orig­i­nal Watch Dogs fell flat of expec­ta­tions due to bor­ing, repet­i­tive game­play and a main char­ac­ter that had about as much per­son­al­i­ty as an emp­ty paper bad, Watch Dogs 2 is fun and Watch Dogs Legion looks to be tak­ing the series in the right direc­tion. Check out the full 11 min­utes of game­play shown at E3 in the video embed­ded above to see what you’re up against in a dystopi­an Lon­don.

Watch Dogs Legion will launch for the Playsta­tion 4, Xbox One and PC March 6th 2020
