Shown off at today’s Ubisoft Forward event, Xbox’s Phil Spencer added that the game will support Smart Delivery between Xbox One and Xbox Series X, with the latter version using Direct X Raytracing.
We got a look at a live-action/CG trailer for the game’s dystopian themes and futuristic London setting. We also saw a series of gameplay clips, showing London’s Dedsec in action.
We saw recruitment profiling, differences in dialogue between procedurally generated characters, and a look at the game’s story – featuring a mysterious terrorist cell, London’s new PMC police group, Albion, and the Kelly Gang, led by Mary Kelly.Mission gameplay shows a series of Dedsec operatives attempting to break into the Tower of London, including a contruction worker armed with a wrench, nailgun and a cargo drone. It then shows the same mission attempted by a more stealth oriented drone expert, who uses surveillance and spider drones, and an Albion officer who can simply walk through the Tower’s defences.
A separate mission sees Dedsec attempting to disrupt an organ farming operation from the perspective of a drunk football fan (who passes out) and a John Wick-like hitman, able to take down swathes of security. It’s a confident showing of quite how different Legion can be for every player.After previous hands-on previews of the game, we called said Watch Dogs Legion is unlike any other Ubisoft game. We’ve previously learned how its “Play As Anyone” system actually works, and been told the game will at some point come to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
