The first game’s protagonist will be fully playable and have his own story missions.
Watch Dogs: Legion will be one of several Xbox Series X/S launch titles in November. However, it launches for current-gen by October end, so it helps to brush up on how the game’s recruitment system works. Check out the latest trailer below which details the different backstories, skills and personalities that each potential recruit can offer.
Ubisoft also confirmed that Aiden Pearce, the protagonist of the first Watch Dogs, was making a return. Dubbed as “older but not necessarily wiser” (which is concerning given how dumb he was in the first game), Aiden will be playable and have his own dedicated story chapter that’s part of the Season Pass. This reflects how the NPC recruitment system can be used to slot in all kinds of different new characters and missions.
Watch Dogs: Legion is out on October 29th for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. It launches for Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X on November 10th with support for ray-tracing and other graphical improvements like higher resolution textures. Stay tuned for more details and gameplay footage in the coming weeks.
