Today, during the Ubisoft Forward show, the company showed off some new content for the third install of the popular hacking game, Watch Dogs Legion. Take a look at the trailer below.

The gameplay shows off a whole bunch of characters and locations in London. Players will have to build up their gang to take on both the government’s hired goons, called Albion, to “fix London” and the Crime Lord that has taken over the streets selling everything they can over the black market.

There are now more unique archetypes to recruit and control in Watch Dogs Legion, building on the game’s original pitch of being able to play as almost any NPC in the city. One section of gameplay showed infiltration of the Tower of London by either stealthy methods with drones or an all-guns-blazing approach by a mechanic armed with a nail gun. There are all kinds of characters you can control. From punks, hackers, and old ladies, to construction workers, Albion soldiers, and even as spies.

As a dapper James Bond-esque spy, you can wield a unique silenced pistol, jam enemy weapons with your spy watch, and drive a spy car, which comes equipped with missiles and a cloak.

As a football (soccer) hooligan, you can use the ability “Rally Cry” to call friends into a fight, and “Tough Drunk” to take less damage – presumably while bevvied up and guarding statues. you can even pass out from drinking too much.

Ubisoft even gave a release date of October 29th 2020 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC
