Ubisoft is back, and better than ever with the 3rd installment of the Watch Dog series. This time Ubisoft teamed up with HitRecord to give the community their own chance to be a part of the game by giving them a challenge to create new and exciting music for the game! This game is revolutionary and has spent years trying to perfect its fresh take on this open-world, action adventure game. The team may have pushed back the release date over a year, but they made that wait worth it.

Watch Dogs: Legion is the third piece in the Watch Dogs trilogy. It just happens to take place in the near-futuristic London that is on the downfall due to the corruption of the private military, organized crime, and state surveillance. The story revolves around a group of hackers called DedSec an organization that is spread out throughout the world. Their sole purpose is to use an operating system for their own success at the cost of the regular citizens. You find out that there have been explosives placed at the Houses of Parliament, when Sabine, London’s Dedsec Branch Lead, sends an operative to defuse the bomb, you find out that it has been placed by another group of hackers called "Zero Day." Many months later, the city becomes a surveillance state, where nobody can live their lives normally due to the constant monitoring from the SIRS (Signals Intelligence Response).

Now it's up to you when exploring the urban open world of London and its famous landmarks to recruit a team and fight back while trying to build a resistance to give the city and freedom back to the people.

Now, Ubisoft decided on a new style for Watch Dogs: Legion. You are able to play as literally any person that you come across. You get the chance to experience any Londoner’s unique backstory, personality, and skillset, which will all come in handy during your various adventures. Best part is you can customize your team with funky outfits and standout masks.

But it is important to think about who you choose. All their lives are in your hands.

Want a new combat experience? Well Watch Dogs: Legion introduces a new melee system. There’s even a new range of weapons and abilities that will enhance your gameplay experience, but at the cost of one wrong move will bring real consequences. You might even try using the augmented reality hack to sneak around unnoticed.

There is an upcoming online feature coming to Watch Dogs: Legion as well. Following an update that should come around December 2020, players will be able to join up in teams of 4 for co-op gameplay. It will even count your progression for both singleplayer and multiplayer modes. Players can either do co-op missions or just patrol around London looking for the bad guys.

There will also be a competitive multiplayer mode named “Spiderbot Arena”. You literally get to compete in free-for-all matches where you control a little robotic spider called...a spiderbot.
