Ubisoft has confirmed that the next Watch Dogs game will be revealed at this year’s E3. The game won’t be called Watch Dogs 3 but instead Watch Dogs Legion. The game was recently leaked by Amazon UK and now Ubisoft has confirmed the leak. The confirmation comes with a teaser video on Ubisoft’s Twitter account with the sentence “God Save the NPC’s.” This confirmation seems to fit with what Kotaku’s Jason Schreier stated about the game. It seems the series will also be moving out of the United States and into the United Kingdom.
The product description on Amazon UK says Watch Dogs Legion will be set in a dystopian version of London in a post-Brexit world where society, politics and even technology has changed the fortunes of the city.
The most interesting new feature of the game is that you can reportedly play as any NPC. This means that you’ll be able to control any NPC you come across. The unofficial post states that every individual in the game will have a full set of animations, voice overs, character traits and visuals that will be generated by the game. This all seems to be true given the recent Ubisoft tweet.
The move to London makes sense since the city is known for its high-security surveillance system. The post also states that you’ll see the world differently depending on the NPC you’re playing as. This system does sound very ambitious and will be the main selling point of the game. This ambitious system also seems to be the reason the game has been on the back burner for so long.
Ubisoft hasn’t mentioned a release date or what platforms the game will be available on, however, there will be more details revealed at E3. It seems that Watch Dogs Legion will be the most ambitious game Ubisoft has ever made. Are you ready to become everyone?
