Despite being announced at E3 2018, Watch Dogs Legion is still quite a mysterious project — thankfully, the long-awaited sandbox will step into the spotlight during the upcoming Ubisoft Forward digital conference.
To make the wait a little less excruciating, the publisher has revealed a never-before-seen piece of artwork for the dystopian Watch Dogs 2 sequel, shining a light on the open-world video game's colourful cast of (randomly generated) characters and main villains — a corrupt privatised military corporation called Albion.
Although the 2016 entry in Ubisoft's blockbuster franchise was much more sunny, wild, and lively than the controversial original, the long-delayed threequel will try to return to the series' darker — and a little bit more rooted in reality — roots, with Albion imposing martial law on the civilians of a post-Brexit London.
Considering that we still know next to nothing about the title's plot and gameplay loop, the Ubisoft Forward event will be a great opportunity to showcase Watch Dogs Legion's features and its unique "Play as Anyone" system that will allow you to assume the role of every single character you encounter in the vast open world.
Without further ado, take a closer look at the all-new artwork for Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Legion down below:
