Ordinary Citizens Rise Up in Brand-New Trailer for Clint Hocking's WATCH DOGS LEGION

Watch Dogs Legion will probably be one of the most talked about games about of 2020, and if you can't wait to learn more about Ubisoft's next big thing, the French publisher has released a new trailer for the title.

In the upcoming open-world project — which will finally arrive on October 29, 2020 — gamers will be able to recruit and play as anyone they see in the game's post-Brexit city of London. The fresh trailer puts the spotlight on said feature and reveals that even the biggest idiots can join the fight and make a difference.

According to Watch Dogs Legion Creative Director Clint Hocking (Far Cry 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory), the title has evolved in many ways thanks to last year's delay. "Because there was so much innovation in the game, so many different experiments, so many different iterations on Play as Anyone, after the game was delayed, we were actually able to look back at some of the things we wanted to do that we weren't going to be able to do," Hocking said in an interview with Ubisoft. "A few of those things were, first of all, a big improvement on Play as Anyone, which meant diversifying the kinds of properties that you would find on people in the world, but also, creating richer and more complex characters in the world, so that you really have a much stronger feeling of what you see is what you get."

With Watch Dogs Legion launching this October, Ubisoft should share more details on the ambitious sequel to Watch Dogs 2 in the near future — most definitely during a second Ubisoft Forward show in September.

Without further ado, take a closer look at the intense "Resistance" trailer for Watch Dogs Legion down below:

Build the resistance. Recruit anyone. Play as anyone. Londoners are being oppressed by corrupt opportunists and it’s up to you to build a resistance to give the city back to the people. With an entire population of potential recruits and the city’s technology at your fingertips, you’ll need to hack, infiltrate, and fight your way to a liberated London.

Watch_Dogs Legion is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC (via the Epic Games Store and Uplay) on October 29, 2020; will arrive on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at a later date.
