It is that time of the year again. E3 is around the corner and so leaks of upcoming announcements are arriving. An important one we’ve been waiting for is Watch Dogs Legion and thanks to Amazon UK, we now know about it.
What’s interesting about this listing is the description, which highlights an important feature of the game:
Play as anyone, Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems.
This is a rather interesting feature. If you ask me, moving away from the idea of using a single individual is great! Go out, recruit followers and play as them. This makes the game way more interesting.
Given the premise of each individual having its own development that makes them unique it sounds like fun to play. Why? Simple. Replayability.
Something additional that you can find in the listing is the setting. We will go to London.
Watch_Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London. It’s a post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes. London is one of the most iconic cities in the world and has had a massive influence on all of Western Culture for centuries… London makes total sense for WD, as the city has one of the highest surveillce levels in the world making this the perfect playground.
We will be waiting to hear about Watch Dogs Legion at E3. What would you like from this game?
