[Ubisoft]Watch Dogs Legion - Liberate London As Anyone This March – E3 2019

Quote:
Watch Dogs: Legion is coming March 6, 2020, and it's dropping players into a near-future London where anyone can be recruited to fight back against a new wave of authoritarianism. Coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and the Stadia gaming platform, Watch Dogs: Legion challenges you to push back against criminals, a corrupt private military corporation, and an oppressive surveillance state amidst a collapsed government by building a resistance from the downtrodden citizens around you.

The characters you'll meet roaming around London aren't randomly generated; instead, each has a persistent schedule and backstory, as well as special traits you can leverage to help your cause using the Play as Anyone feature. By helping characters and improving their opinion of hacker group DedSec, you can persuade them to join – and once they do, you'll be able to take full control of them. You'll also shape them into effective operatives – tough Enforcers, sneaky Infiltrators, or drone-controlling Hackers – and add them to a team with diverse skills and backgrounds, whose members you can switch between at any time (and who can all do at least basic Watch Dogs-style environmental hacking).

London's citizens are all fully voiced, and whether you're playing as an elderly pensioner or a tough-as-nails boxer, the game's cutscenes will change to reflect your character's presence and personality. Your choices also have an effect on the world around you; put up your fists instead of drawing a gun, for example, and your enemies will attempt to arrest or take you down non-lethally. But if you draw a gun – even a nonlethal one – they'll do likewise, and the confrontation could end with your character permanently killed.

This seems to be the main reveal from Ubi for E3 right now. If there is another major reveal I will edit this thread to include it. They also announced a new Rainbow Six game but didn't show a lot of details for that. The rest is a series of DLCs and laughable mobile games as well as a Division movie on Netflix.

* Uplay+ announced. $15 per month subscription service for PC and Stadia that give you full access to all of the games on Uplay including DLC and new releases.

Game looks really good though. Really cool take on the hacker gameplay concept.

Edit: Sorry if you noticed the thread title being crazy at first. It came out like that when I copy pasted it from the source. Fixed.

I loved the dark gritty feel and plot of WD1 and I was very let down by WD2 so I get where you are coming from. It's gonna be better than 2 for sure but I won't be surprised if it's also better than 1 after seeing this. The reveal looks better than I would have expected.

i wonder if we'll finally see the graphics they sold us in the first one

I lost interest in 2 almost immediately, but had fun in 1 even with the Matrix tier police responses.

yeah, ubisoft is KING of the vertical slice.

Hold your horses, go review the original Watch Dogs debacle where they drastically neutered graphics & features shown @ E3. Even CDPrkt has made this fatal error while showing off new titles.

thus why I said "hopefully #3 will finally hit the mark they promised with #1"

If I remember correctly, it was the watch dogs 1 graphics downgrade drama that made the CEO decide to make a company policy of only showing finalized gameplay footage in non cinematic trailers from then on. WD2 definitely looked the same as it did in trailers. No doubt in my mind legion will look the same as its reveal.

awesome, glad to hear that CEO's can still learn lessons.

vertical slices need to go die in a fire. they're nothing but deceptive.
