We’ve been waiting and waiting for Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs: Legion, and great news is that the wait will soon be over.

How soon? October 29 soon!

The game will hit PS4 and Xbox One then, and PS5 and Xbox Series X at their respective launches. Those who opt for the now-gen format then upgrade to the next-gen console will be able to get a free upgrade of the game for the new system – PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X.

Story-wise, a mysterious entity known as Zero-Day has framed London’s secret underground resistance DedSec for a series of bombings across the city. As a member of DedSec, the player will be going up against all manner of criminal opportunists from sadists to mercenaries to cybercriminals and beyond.

As many will already know, one of the biggest innovations in Watch Dogs: Legion is the ability to play as anyone. Quite literally you can recruit anybody that you come across in-game to the cause – with up to 40 in your arsenal at any one time. It’s a truly groundbreaking concept.

The video just below gives us a good look into actual gameplay in Watch Dogs: Legion…
