Watch Dogs: Legion takes players to a London which is facing its downfall. Amidst the growing unrest of a restless London, an unknown entity named Zero-Day has framed secret underground resistance DedSec for coordinated bombings across London. In the aftermath, criminal opportunists from every corner of London took hold and filled the void left by a defeated government.
As a member of DedSec, players will be going up against those criminal opportunists in Watch Dogs: Legion; sadists, mercenaries, cybercriminals, and more; they’ll have to be prepared for a variety of situations. Players must recruit members into their DedSec Resistance to take on these criminal opportunists, liberate London and uncover the identity of Zero-Day.
You can now purchase Watch Dogs: Legion on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna and the Windows PC (via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store).
