With clearly a lot of design work and hard effort going into constructing their large expansive open worlds, we have come to expect development teams to incorporate photography modes in games such as Ubisoft’s recently released Watch Dogs: Legion. Fortunately, Ubisoft Toronto gives many options to take that perfect in-game snap, one such example being its Photo Booth mode which enables you to take propaganda-style images with your recruits.
While I am still very early on in the game, this is an example of what is possible pretty much the moment you recruit your first Dedsec Recruit. It can be a little finnicky to use at the start, but it offers a lot of potential!
Watch Dogs: Legion is now available physically and digitally for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms – with upgrade paths available for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S once they release next month.
Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo is an off-shoot of the Take That (In-Game) Snap article series, in which the first article focusing on Final Fantasy XIV was recently published. This looks at, celebrates and critiques how video game developers have implemented professional photography-like systems into their games. It will cover how the systems handle, just how accessible they are and, where applicable, how a modding community might be making these tools even better. With this Daily Photo spin-off series, I will be sharing individual photos from the games either covered or soon-to-be-covered in the series.
