What is Watch Dogs Legion?

The E3 2019 show floor still isn't open yet, but the press conferences are still going strong, with Ubisoft set to take the stage at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on Monday, June 10th.

Nvidia wants to draw attention to something Ubisoft didn't emphasize, which is that Watch Dogs: Legion will support real-time ray tracing on RTX graphics cards.

The new "multiplayer" approach is reminiscent of the earlier versions of Watch Dogs' multiplayer mode.

The WikiLeaks founder is now lodged in the Belmarsh jail where he is serving a 50-week sentence for skipping bail. Mr Javid said he signed the order on Wednesday but that the final decision now rested with the courts.


Watch Dogs 1 and 2 both gave players highly accurate recreations of their respective cities, and Legion looks to do the same; one segment of the gameplay demo shown at E3 took place in Camden Market, and was so familiar it gave this writer an nearly uneasy feeling in their stomach. It's certainly bleak, but beyond this, Legion is also aggressively British in the kind of way London is often viewed by the rest of the world.

Like Watch Dogs 2, Legion focuses on DedSec; the vigilante hacker collective within the Watch Dogs universe, fighting the ruling authority. Interestingly, Legion will let players "recruit" and take control of any NPC in the game, and your character choice will actually affect how the game plays out. "People are being oppressed by an all-seeing surveillance state, a corrupt private military corporation controls the streets, and a powerful crime syndicate is preying on the most vulnerable". A very interesting and cool touch we noticed when playing as these ladies was the fact that their movements and their mannerisms would differ from the other playable characters. "You can recruit and play as anyone" says director Clint Hocking. That tough bare knuckle fighter should do the trick. "Every Londoner is fully simulated", they have their own lives, different backstories, and you can play their origin mission to win them over to your cause.

Like nearly all Ubisoft games, characters can be leveled up. When it releases next year, it's planned to come to Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Google Stadia.
