With Microsoft now having officially confirmed November 10 as the launch date for the Xbox Series X and the newly-revealed Xbox Series S, information on the games that will be coming to the two next-gen consoles is also beginning to flood in. Ubisoft, for instance, have now confirmed that Watch Dogs: Legion – which was already primed for next-gen – will be a launch title for the two new Xbox consoles and be available on them on November 10. 

On the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, Watch Dogs: Legion will also be leveraging the more powerful hardware for various technical improvements. For instance, the game will feature hardware-accelerated ray-tracing, as well as other graphical improvements, such as high resolution textures and improved shadow quality.

On top of that, Ubisoft also states that it will be leveraging Xbox’s Direct Storage technology for faster streaming of the world, making for a smoother traversal experience, as well as much faster load times. Finally, cross-saves and cross-progression will also be supported across both generations of Xbox consoles. 

Watch Dogs: Legion will be launching on November 10 for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S alongside fellow Ubisoft open world title Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Before that, Watch Dogs: Legion will launch for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on October 29. The game’s PS5 release date is unknown for now, and will remain unknown until Sony officially announces the console’s launch date.
