What is the Plot Watch Dogs: Legion?
The game has been upscaled to a whole other level, and that is why the game has been titled ‘Watch Dogs: legion’ instead of Watch Dogs 3. The main reason behind this is the fact that players will be able to control any citizen and each of them will be having their unique trait which will come in very handy, so its not just one character like the other games in the series, but a whole army of hackers who are waiting for the right opportunity.
The game will feature a completely new story in the hearts of what appears to be the futuristic post-Brexit London, and a whole group of hackers has taken the responsibility on their shoulders to free London from the corrupt government. The open-world game features a third-person perspective, and it will follow the protagonist group called as DedSec who takes the charge against the corrupt government regime of the fictionalized London by aiming to topple their advance surveillance system ‘ctOS.’ As discussed earlier, the game will be different as players will be able to recruit any people and use their unique skillset to gain the upper hand.

Watch Dogs: Legion Gameplay
The gameplay will not be much different from its predecessors, and it will introduce some new cool non-lethal combat techniques, however, lethal mode along with heavy machinery will be focussed as well. Considering the concept of the game, the co-op multiplayer seems highly immersive, and according to Ubisoft, the game will feature some ‘challenging endgame content,’ and ‘free regular updates adding new online modes, rewards, and themed events.’
According to the creative director of the game, Clint Hocking, each of the NPCs will have their backstory, skillsets, and relationships. The entire concept has been highly detailed, and the NPCs, if die, won’t respawn back, so players will have to vary careful while handling them.
