Watch Dogs: Legion from Ubisoft is the third instalment in the franchise and one that seeks to take it to even greater heights. Does it manage to do this though? That answer will depend entirely on if you enjoyed the original Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2 a few years back.
In Watch Dogs: Legion, players will take on the role of Dalton Wolfe at first. Dalton has infiltrated the British parliament building’s underground levels and discovers a room filled with explosives. Around these explosives are a lot of propaganda and “Deadsec” materials. Deadsec, for those unfamiliar with Watch Dogs, is the name of the hacker group that players work for and with in the franchise. Dalton eventually disarms the bombs but a mysterious figure known as Zero Day still manages to detonate the explosives below parliament and multiple more at other locations around London. Dalton is killed and London is thrown into disarray as the UK Government doubles down on hiring a private military corporation known as Albion to start enforcing law around the city. Deadsec is blamed for the explosion and is labelled a terrorist organization while London enters a state of disarray.
Sabine, the last remaining member of Deadsec recruits you, the player, into their group and this is where Watch Dogs: Legion really kicks off.
Your other recruits will wander off and do their own thing while you play as one of them.
New to Watch Dogs: Legion is the ability to trigger an “Autodrive” mode in 4-wheeled vehicles which can be used to take you from Destination A to Destination B while you sit and listen to the radio.
