Watch Dogs Legion will be released on October 29 following a delay from its originally scheduled March release date. The game is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC on that date.
Legion’s biggest gimmick is the ability to control a variety of characters and NPCs. If the resistance member you are currently playing as is killed, they are gone forever and it’s time to move on to someone else. Characters can range from brutish operatives to stealthy old ladies. On top of that, you’ll be able to scan the abilities of nearby characters and find ways to use them to your advantage. For instance, we see operatives pursue and recruit a drone expert to help them disable enemy machines.
It’s quite the impressive feature that looks truly expansive. Ubisoft really is aiming to let you play as any NPC and use whatever they may have to offer to your advantage. Watch Dogs 2 was great, but this is the kind of gimmick that might help the series really re-establish itself.
