Ubisoft has released a new promo for Watch Dogs: Legion, the third entry in the third-person hacker-shooter series.
The video is a new one explaining the “Play as Anyone” mechanic. If the character you’re playing as in the game dies, it is permanent. But with this mechanic, you can choose anyone else in the world to continue playing as.
You can check out this new Watch Dogs: Legion video below, along with much more info on the game and a couple of previously released bonus videos for anyone who hasn’t seen them.
On this week’s The Drill Down podcast, a high-rise helicopter crash casts doubts on Uber‘s new service, one hundred thousand travelers’ IDs hacked, all the highlights from this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 2019), and much more.
Ubisoft just finished their E3 2019 showcase, during which they shared the first look at Watch Dogs 3, which is titled Watch Dogs: Legion. And as we’re used to seeing with this series—for better or for worse—the game is certainly ambitious.
Watch Dogs: Legion shifts things over to London in the near future, where the people are being oppressed and a growing resistance is fighting back. But the ambitious part is that the game will apparently allow you recruit anyone into your group of resistance fighters, each having their own backstory. And if while playing as one of your characters you choose to engage in lethal combat and end up getting killed, it is a permanent death. This then forces you to choose someone else to play as, and continue on with your objectives.
To show off this mechanic an 11-minute gameplay walkthrough has been released along with a world premiere trailer. You can read more about Watch Dogs: Legion and watch the two videos below.
A new story trailer and gameplay video have been released for the game, a standalone sequel to last year’s Far Cry 5 which is set in the same location at a different time. You can find these videos and much more info on the game below. But fair warning: if you haven’t yet played Far Cry 5 and plan to, you may want to hold off until you get to play it.
During E3 2018 we saw a new cinematic trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2. But that’s not all Ubisoft brought to the convention.
Also shown behind closed doors at E3 was a pre-Alpha gameplay demo. Now Ubisoft is offering everyone a peek at the demo that was shown. They’ve released a condensed gameplay update video, which shares glimpses of the action which was shown in the E3 demo, and also did a livestream sharing much more gameplay action.
