"Watch Dogs: Legion" should have been out by now, but after some delays, Ubisoft will release its third "Watch Dogs" game in late October 2020. "Legion" takes place in London, which has come under authoritarian rule after a spate of bombings. Those bombings have been pinned on the hacker group DedSec, which now has to prove its innocence by finding the real culprits.
The biggest innovation in "Legion" is that there is no real main character to play as. Instead, you need to find people in the city, make them sympathetic to the cause, and recruit them. If they die, they're dead for good. You'll need to find another. If they're captured, you'll have to save them with another recruit.
Tech Radar's demo review of this feature was negative, calling the recruits "half-baked and more of a means to just repaste the same abilities in a different skin." The Verge gave a slightly more positive take, although they noted the game's success will depend on how original these recruits turn out to be.
The game has co-op modes with up to four players, which is good to see. Angry Centaur Gaming also enjoyed it.
