Turns out all the rumors you’ve been hearing about Watch Dogs Legion are true. Ubisoft showed off the game during their E3 conference today as the centerpiece of their 2019-2020 lineup. It’s set in a dystopian post-Brexit London, and all the NPCs on the street are playable. ALL of them.
It’s become tradition for Ubisoft’s E3 game lineup to completely leak out at least one week before their actual presentation. It’s almost like Ubisoft lets these leaks happen on purpose, but….naaah, that couldn’t be it.
Most gamers agree that the original Watch Dogs kinda failed at what it set out to do, but now that it has an entry price of “free,” it’s worth a play. Ubisoft will be giving away the PC version of the 2014 open-world hacking game starting tomorrow, November 7. The giveaway period ends a week from today, November 13.
The titles that are due to become available for free in June through the Games With Gold program. As is usual with the offer, Xbox Live Gold members will get access to four titles in total, two on the Xbox One and another two for the Xbox 360.
Watch Dogs released in 2014 after spending several years as one of the most anticipated games of recent times thanks to a number of impressive trailers and showcases at events such as E3. Despite being a commercial success, the title garnered plenty of negative press and criticism from players who believed that they had been misled as to the visual effects that would appear in-game as well as the graphical capabilities of Watch Dogs.
Watch Dogs will forever be a story about a game that showed one thing when it was revealed, but was something entirely different when people got to play it. The difference was so radical, that even though the game sold, and sold well, many of the fans are demanding that the sequel be like the “demo” they say when it was unveiled at E3.
Speaking to GamesTM, Jonathan Morin, creative director of Watch Dogs, said that Watch Dogs 2 will take more risks. He also talked about the future of the franchise and how there is a lot of room for improvement.
Ubisoft has announced that Watch Dogs will be available on the Wii U on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe.
Ubisoft has announced new story DLC called Bad Blood for Watch Dogs.
Gaming has always had its benchmark titles; those games that stand out head and shoulders above the rest, those that set the trends other studios work towards or try to best. These seminal titles are considered to be the benchmarks of which other games, and sequels, are judged; particularly within specific genres. Every so often, with increasing rarity in an industry which relies heavily on sequels and franchises, a game comes along and sets a new benchmark.
Ubisoft has revealed new content for Watch Dogs, which is available now. The DLC pack, which you can purchase for $6.99, comes with three single-player missions, new perks, weapons, and outfits.
After a lengthy delay Watch Dogs finally arrives. It’s possibly one of the most anticipated games of the year, if not the single most anticipated, so does Watch Dogs live up to its next generation promises and reach the lofty heights of the e3 demo that gamers fell in love with nearly 2 years ago?
