Well, Ubisoft Forward started and ended with a blast. Ubisoft showcased some games. Watch Dogs: Legion was one of them. I have to say that the trailer you’ll see below is really fun and entertaining. The Watch Dogs: Legion gameplay itself looks really fun. However, my concern is about the extent to which each person is unique. The game boasts that you can play as anyone but they are not clear about one thing. How similar or unique are these characters?
Take a Look at the New Watch Dogs: Legion Gameplay Overview
As you can see above, the game looks quite awesome. The concept is great but the concern is legitimate. However, Ubisoft is known to create worlds and characters which are fun and unique. For this, I trust them.
In the gameplay, we see the unique abilities of a construction worker. If it was any other game, only the costume would’ve shown the uniqueness of the character. However, in Watch Dogs, the character’s abilities suit their overall personality. For example, the construction worker’s melee weapon is a wrench and he also has a Nail Gun.
If you play as a spy, you will get your hands on a beautiful spy car (it can launch rockets). One thing which I noticed is the takedown animations. There are not just a couple of them which are similar for every character. It seems unique depending on their physical capabilities. For example, the spy’s takedown looked much cleaner and more professional than the rugged takedowns of the drunk man who passes out in the middle of the fight.
I’m looking forward to see Ubisoft pulling off this game. Also, Watch Dogs: Legion is releasing on October 29, 2020. You can pre-order it here. Here’s the cinematic trailer for Watch Dogs: Legion.
Also, I would like to point out that Ubisoft is doing something pretty risky by releasing Assassins Creed: Valhalla on November 17, 2020 because Cyberpunk 2077 releases on November 19, 2020. There’s going to be a lot of competition.
