Watch Dogs: Legion is an action and open world game developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft, with Ubisoft Kyiv assisting in development of the game's PC version.[1]

Watch Dogs: Legion, unlike the prior games in the series, forgoes having a set protagonist and instead allows any citizen of its representation of London to be recruited and played, with the characters playing differently depending on their occupation and other randomly generated elements, and is achieved using technology such as voice modulation.[2] Alongside this system, an optional "permadeath" mode can be enabled on any difficulty.[3] It uses an upgraded version of the series' Disrupt engine, with supported features including HDR display support, hardware ray tracing effects, ultra-widescreen and multi-monitor support, an unlocked framerate and Nvidia's DLSS technology.[1]

Announced at E3 2019, the game was originally set to release on March 6, 2020, however by October 2019 it was delayed to an unspecified date in the following financial year.[4] The final release date of October 29, 2020 was announced during the July 2020 Ubisoft Forward event.[5]

Future plans for the game include various free content updates which will add four-player co-op missions, versus multiplayer modes, new characters, new missions and a New Game Plus mode. A paid story expansion titled Bloodline, featuring the protagonist of the first game in the series, is scheduled to release as well.[6]
