Watch Dogs: Legion is the third instalment in Ubisoft’s high-tech Watch Dogs series and it is taking players to the UK for the first time.

Watch Dogs: Legion sees you navigating futuristic city streets, including Camden Market and Piccadilly Circus, as you form a resistance to take back the city.


It will release on 29 October 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, Stadia and PC. It will be exclusive on PC in the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store.

Watch Dogs: Legion will be available on Ubisoft’s subscription service UPLAY+, and will offer free next-gen upgrades on Xbox Series X and PS5.

Ubisoft has confirmed that next-gen versions of the game for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be available from 10 November which is also the launch date of the consoles.

The date for the PS5 version of the game is on the 24 November. Ubisoft has previously confirmed that those who have purchased the game on current-gen consoles will receive next-gen upgrades for free.


Watch Dogs: Legion sees you taking on an organisation called Albion who have distributed riot drones all over London to keep people in line. You are a member of the resistance DeadSec.

You can play as more than one character where every Londoner can be being recruited and are fully simulated.

Ubisoft has revealed that Aiden Pearce, the main character of the first Watch Dogs game, will return in Watch Dogs: Legion as a playable character. Pearce will be available to those who purchase the game’s Season Pass and there will be an entirely new chapter in his story as part of the standalone DLC included in the pass.

The Season Pass will give access to two new post-game story expansions, four new heroes, each with new abilities and exclusive cosmetics, three Dedsec Missions, Watch Dogs: Complete Edition and a Dedsec car skin.


Ubisoft has revealed that Watch Dogs: Legion will have a mission that stars British rapper Stormzy during its recent Ubisoft Forward stream. The stream saw the star debut part of a new music video created within the game while the mission named Fall On My Enemies after the track, will be playable in-game on its 29 October release.


Sean Crooks, lead producer of Watch Dogs: Legion said, “We wanted to create situations where people could find fantasies around them, on characters, try them out, and deliver on them. If people can use their ingenuity about how things work in the real world, and the game simulates and delivers on that, then it’s going to work really well. So we focused our development and our approach to all the systems around that.”
